The Toyota Corolla
The Toyota Corolla has built up an excellent reputation over the years.
It was introduced to Japan in 1966 but it was in the summer of 1968 that the first Corolla came to the United States.
The reliability of the Toyota Corolla cannot be overemphasized. Personally, I have had first hand experience with one and I can tell you that I have never owned such a reliable car.
The Corolla is the first car Toyota made in America and is the most popular car line in history; over 30 million of them have been sold worldwide.
To date, there have been up to nine generations of Corollas. With each generation, Toyota made improvements according to engine power, body style, larger interiors, sporty designs, automatic transmissions, front and rear wheel drives, fuel injection, and the list goes on and on.
These generations were 1968-1969, 1970-1974, 1975-1978, 1979-1983, 1984-1987, 1988-1992, 1993-1997, 1998-2002, and the ninth generation is 2003 to the present. Each generation resulted in Corollas with their own specific characteristics and features.
With the last generation of Toyota Corollas, Toyota claims that they are targeting younger buyers. Corollas are available as a base CE, luxury LE or sporty S. It has exactly the same wheelbase as the 1983 Camry and is 102.4 inches. This is about 5 inches longer than the previous generation of Corollas. Its overall length is 178.3 inches.
The new Corolla comes with an engine which is rated at 130 horsepower and it has a five speed manual transmission shifter that is precise. The CE - grade Corolla comes with a CD player, air conditioning with micron filtration, power mirrors, 15- inch wheels and four gears in its optional automatic transmission.
If you're looking for a car that is trouble free, comfortable, roomy and reliable, a Corolla is what you need. It continues to be a top seller in the US and around the world.
