THE WORLD’S MOST LOVED CAR

The current generation Corolla, introduced to the SA market in 2014, leads all automotive nameplates worldwide, and the latest iteration of this evergreen Toyota staple amply demonstrates why.

For 2015 the Corolla kit list has grown across the board, with all models now getting Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) as standard.

The mid-spec 1.6 Sprinter which features a sporty style twist courtesy of the anthracite alloys, boot lid spoiler and Sprinter-unique colour palette and trim, has also been upgraded to include Toyota’s award-winning multi-media touch screen display with reverse monitor and guidelines.

STEERING WHEEL SWITCHES

Another new standard equipment item for all Corollas is Bluetooth functionality (and steering wheel switches). This feature has now been extended to include the entry-level Esteem models as well.

The engine line-up comprises the exceptional 1.4 litre D-4D turbo diesel (a 2015 SA Car of the Year finalist) and three petrol engines; a 1.33 litre Dual VVT-i unit, a 1.6 litre Dual VVT-i engine and another new powerplant, the 1.8 litre Dual VVT-i unit. All engines are fitted with six-speed manual transmissions, but the 1.6 and 1.8 petrol variants may optionally be mated to Toyota’s new, high-gear, high-efficiency Multidrive S CVT automatic transmission.

The good news is that the resultant price hike for the new-spec Corollas is much less than the value of the extra kit offered – the increases range from 0,5% up to a maximum of 1,3% (model dependent).
