Originally launched in Japan in 1966, Corolla first arrived in America in 1968 to instant success. For nearly four decades, Corolla has been synonymous with Toyota quality, style and value, earning a distinction as one of the most trusted cars in America. Over that span more than 30 million Corollas have been sold worldwide, making it one of the best-selling cars of all time.

The new Corolla remains true to the brand's role as a subcompact sedan, with dimensions similar to the model it replaces. But it offers an all-new body with a lean, stylish shape, and it delivers increased interior and luggage room, more power, more economical engines and an all-new chassis and suspension. The all-new Corolla will come in five grades - Standard, LE, XLE, the sporty S, and the performance-driven XRS.

The Corolla's wide, low profile was developed by Toyota Design in collaboration with styling studios in Turin, Italy. Its foundation was set by the search for a lower, sportier shape than that of the previous Corolla. That search drove the decision to move the bottom of the A-pillar forward and the bottom of the C-pillar aft to increase the angle of the window glass and to improve the Corolla's aerodynamic performance.

The standard body kit on S and XRS models helps to modify aerodynamics and enhance the Corolla's sporty look - these include a front underbody spoiler, fog lamps, rocker moldings, upper and lower rear spoilers, and for improved air management under the car, engine undercovers.

The 2009 Corolla's interior is sporty and distinctive - with roomy-feeling comfort. While Corolla maintains the same headroom, legroom and shoulder room as the previous model, it feels larger, thanks to a design that enhances comfort and improves utility, usability and storage.

A variety of useable, easy-to-reach storage spaces add convenience and usability to the 2009 Corolla's interior. These include center console side pockets, a storage box above the usual glove box, front and rear door pockets that can safely hold 20-ounce bottles, a console box with a large-capacity main tray and a smaller accessory tray, an overhead console useful for storage of sunglasses or garage-door openers, and a rear-seat center armrest with an integral drink holder. Map lights that illuminate independently are supplied for both driver and front passenger. And to aid in ingress and egress, retractable handgrips are supplied above each door opening.

The Standard, LE and XLE models will be equipped with an all-new 1.8-liter engine. The 16-valve, DOHC four-cylinder engine with Dual VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing with intelligence), produces 132 hp at 6,000 rpm and 128 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. Corolla models equipped with the 1.8-liter engine will achieve preliminary EPA city/highway fuel economy ratings of 27/35 mpg.

A five-speed manual transmission is standard with the 1.8-liter engine, and a four-speed automatic Electronically Controlled Transmission (ECT) will also be available. For those who crave just a bit more horsepower and torque, there is the 2.4-liter engine. This engine is completely redesigned for use in the new Corolla XRS grade. The 16-valve DOHC engine with VVT-i produces 158 hp at 6,000 rpm and 162 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. Preliminary EPA city/highway fuel economy for the 2.4-liter engine is 22/30 mpg. The 2.4-liter engine will be paired with standard five-speed manual and optional five-speed automatic transmissions.

Safety features on the all-new Corolla include standard driver and front passenger airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags and two-row side curtain airbags. Front seats employ active headrests as standard equipment. When the vehicle is struck from the rear, a cable-actuated mechanism in the active headrest moves the headrest upward and forward to limit the movement of the seat occupant's head. Toyota's Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is standard on all grades of the Corolla and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with Traction Control (TRAC) and an off switch is available

The all-new Corolla will be loaded with a comprehensive list of standard performance and convenience features. All models will be equipped with a heavy duty rear window defogger, AM/FM/CD audio with four speakers that is also XM satellite capable, auxiliary audio input jack, air conditioning with air filter, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, 60/40 split folding rear seats, and much more.

The sporty S grade will feature standard P205/55R16 tires with full wheel covers, color-keyed front and rear underbody spoilers, fog lamps, front sport seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, black headlamp housing, chrome exhaust tip and AM/FM/CD XM capable audio with six speakers.

In addition to S grade features, the XRS grade adds a rear deck spoiler, P215/45 R17 tires with alloy wheels, sport strut tower brace, VSC with TRAC and an off switch, XRS scuff plate, leather-trimmed shift lever and knob, cruise control and an interior chrome accent.

An impressive list of optional comfort and utility features will be available to further enhance the Corolla driving experience such as AM/FM/six-disc CD changer with MP3/WMA playback capability, satellite radio (subscription required) and six speakers, a power package that includes power windows and door locks. Additional options on select grades include JBL Audio system with AM/FM six-disc CD changer with eight speakers and Bluetooth, Navigation system with AM/FM CD with MP3/WMA playback capability and XM satellite radio with XM NavTraffic capable with six speakers, leather-trimmed seats and shift knob, tilt and slide moonroof, VSC with TRAC and cut-off switch.

OUR TAKE: Remember the last Corolla? It was about as fun to drive and to look at as waiting in line at the DMV. They are usually steered by people who want reliability and see driving solely as a means to get from one place to another. And their cars are most likely painted in exciting colors such as beige, white and silver.

For the all-new 10th-generation model, the XRS adds a little flavor to the Corolla's bland recipe. The body kit, with front lip, side sills and spoiler, give it some visual flair. The fog lights help, too.

It's not a bad runner, either, and can be entertaining at times. Steering is responsive with the new electronic power system that provides good weight at high speeds but lightens up in low-speed situations. The ride is stable and comfortably during 80-mph jogs down the expressway and exhibits acceptable body roll when maneuvering around town.

The revised 2.4-literis powerful enough in combination with the manual and is very smooth. Brakes are a disappointment, with a mushy pedal feel.

Cabin comfort is high, with a surprisingly quiet environment for this class of car. Seats offer good support, and most surfaces are made of hard but good-looking materials.

The as-tested price, however, made us wince. Lopping off some of the frills to get the sticker closer to $20,000 makes a little more sense to us.

The corolla xrs is a hidden gem

In 2004, Toyota decided to inject some fun into its Corolla lineup​. The vanilla sedan sold well in the US but never captured the hearts of car enthusiasts who chose Civic SI’s and GTI’s to fulfill their sporty needs. To compete with these sports compacts, Toyota gave us the Corolla XRS, a high revving sports compact with a handling package to match. Today, the Corolla XRS, sold from 2004- 2006, is a performance bargain for those looking for a fun, affordable, high revving sports compact. Powered by the 2ZZ-GE 1.8L four-cylinder engine, the XRS was able to rev all the way to 8,200rpm, which is unheard of in this age of turbo engines. The 2ZZ-GE was developed in conjunction with Yamaha and was used in the Celica GTS. Its bottom end was also used in Lotus Elise, due to its reliability and high revving potential. The 6-speed manual gearbox offered in the XRS ensures maximum driver involvement to keep this peaky engine in its power band.

The engine features VVT-I technology, which is comparable to Honda’s VTEC and varies the timing of the intake valves by adjusting the relationship between the camshaft drive and the intake camshaft. The “lift point” is set at 6,700rpm and requires a lot of revs to engage the VVT-I system that is available until its 8,200rpm redline. This engine may only produce 170-horsepower, but its high revving nature and strong power band are more than enough to keep you entertained.

To back up this more powerful engine, Toyota tuned the suspension to promote a fun driving experience. With a strut tower brace, designed by Yamaha, and lowered suspension, the XRS was very entertaining to drive on back roads. All of these improvements transformed the dreary Corolla into a very fun car to drive.

The XRS is also very affordable for the car enthusiast on a budget. $8,000 will get you a well-maintained example. Being a Toyota, the XRS is a very reliable and inexpensive to maintain, making it a great car for those on a tight budget.

The XRS offers a driving experience that is quickly disappearing from the automotive landscape. The high revving naturally aspirated engine is all but gone and the XRS is the perfect way to experience one while staying in budget.

PredecessorToyota Corolla (E120/E130)
Successor

The Toyota Corolla (E140/E150) is the tenth generation of cars sold by Toyota under the Corolla nameplate. Introduced in late 2006, this series was replaced in 2012 in Japan, with the North American model replaced in late 2013, and an early 2014 launch for most other markets. The Toyota Auris replaced the Corolla hatchback in Japan and Europe, but was still badged "Corolla" in Australia and New Zealand.

The dimensions for the Corolla sold in Japan were smaller than vehicles made for export so as to remain in compliance with Japanese government regulations concerning exterior dimensions and engine displacement. The Corolla was slightly longer for the export models 4,540 mm (178.7 in) and wider 1,760 mm (69.3 in) compared to the outgoing model.

The chassis of the E140 is based on the Toyota MC platform, with the E150 model deriving from the New MC platform.[4] In other words, the Japanese market E140 carried its MC platform over from the previous E120. The versions sold in the Americas, Southeast Asia and the Middle East were based on the widened edition of this platform, so they retained the E140 designation. Models sold in Australia, Europe and South Africa used the more sophisticated New MC underpinnings, and were thus designated as E150. The wide-body E150 was first released in China and Europe in early 2007, while the wide-body E140 was released in Americas and parts of Asia less than a year later, from late 2007.

International version (wide-body; saloon)

E140 narrow-body[edit]

Japan[edit]

The tenth-generation Corolla (E140) was released in Japan on 10 October 2006. The saloon is now known as the Corolla Axio.[5] The Axio name was created from the Greek word "axia", meaning "things with value". The estate version retains the Corolla Fielder name. The dimensions for the Corolla sold in Japan are smaller than vehicles made for export so as to remain in compliance with Japanese government regulations concerning exterior dimensions and engine displacement.

The Corolla Axio gets Toyota's latest intelligent parking-assist system. The option costs ¥105,000, or US$879 at current exchange rates. A backup camera monitor is standard. On Japanese models only, G-BOOK, a subscription telematics service, is offered as an option. The Luxel being the highest trim level, offers additional features such as Dynamic radar Cruise Control and tiptronic transmission. The G mid range model receives a set of projector headlamps, factory-fitted audio system with steering audio controls, Push button start, speedometer clusters with additional tachometer clusters and automatic climate controls.

The Japanese model included a rear-view monitor which displays an image of the area at the rear of the vehicle while backing up to reduce the burden on the driver while parking. Also, the optional Intelligent Parking Assist system supports steering operations when parallel parking and backing into a parking space. Ultrasonic sensors installed on the front of the vehicle detect other parked vehicles and, based on the results, estimate the physical dimensions of a vacant parking space and set the target parking position.[6]

The Corolla Axio introduced a Pre-Crash Safety System that uses millimeter-wave radar. When the millimeter-wave radar detects a high risk of collision, the Pre-Crash Seatbelts improves initial restraint capabilities for passengers while the Pre-Crash Brake Assist System decelerates the vehicle to reduce the collision speed and contribute to less damage induced by collision. The Radar Cruise Control system detects and monitors the preceding vehicle and the lane, maintaining a fixed distance according to the preceding vehicle's speed within a preset range of speed.

Both the Corolla Axio and Corolla Fielder received their facelift on 28 October 2008. The Corolla Axio only received a redesigned front grille and tail lights, while the Corolla Fielder also received a redesigned front bumper.

In 2011, a total of 70,758 Corolla Axios were sold in Japan.[7]

In motorsport use, Team apr participated in GT300 class of Super GT, replacing their MR-S with a midship layout Axio E141 in 2009 season.[12]

The Corolla Axio apr GT (NZE141) is a Corolla Axio race car for 2009 SUPER GT GT300 class race. It includes 3.5L 2GR-FSE V6 engine rated over 300 PS (220 kW; 300 bhp) at 6800 rpm, HEWLAND 6-speed sequential transmission, Ogura Clutch Triple Plate, AP Braking System, RAYS 18-inch wheels.[13][14] The apr GT race car weighs roughly at 1100 kg. The vehicle No.74 was unveiled at the 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon.[15][16]

E140 wide-body[edit]

The wide-body version of the E140 Corolla was released from late 2007 as a 2008 model year and is larger in dimensions, while retaining many aspects in styling found on the Japanese model. A subtle difference between the E140 wide body and that of the E150 wide body would be at the front and rear fender panel lines that are between the front and the rear wheel arch; the international E140 has in-built side skirts that fuses with the side profile of the car while the E150 does not.

The models which use a wider and longer version of the Axio's platform, have styling similar to that of the Camry's while providing a list of added equipment beyond that in its interior standard list.

Asia[edit]

Hong Kong

In Hong Kong, Corollas sold were based on the international market models and the Corolla was fitted with the 1.5-litre 1NZ-FE engine. The Corolla sold in Hong Kong is made in Japan, although it does vary from the Japanese market model with minor revisions to the front such as the headlamps and air dams. It is available in Luxury and Advantage variants.[citation needed]

India

The Indian version of the Corolla marketed as 'Corolla Altis' is assembled in Bidadi near Bangalore. The pre-facelift version (2008–2010) had a 1.8-litre ZZ engine with 132 bhp mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox. A 1.4-litre 1ND-TV diesel engine unique to India and Spain with 88 bhp mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox debuted in 2010. In 2011, the Altis was face-lifted and the older ZZ engine was replaced by an updated 1.8 ZR engine producing 140 bhp and was mated to a 6-speed manual like the diesel while a CVT gearbox replaced the outdated 4-speed automatic. The diesel was left untouched mechanically and had a different grill to differentiate it from the petrol.

Indonesia
2010 Toyota Corolla Altis 2.0 V (Indonesia; pre-facelift)

The Corolla Altis was launched on 28 February 2008, and offered in the base J, popular mid-level G, and luxury V trim levels. All were powered by the 1.8-litre 1ZZ-FE engine with VVT-i. The J is only available with manual transmission, while the G and V are automatic only. In early 2009, the V's 1.8-litre 1ZZ-FE engine was replaced with a 2.0-litre 3ZR-FE engine, mated to an automatic transmission. The G and V trim levels featured smart entry with start button system and automatic climate control.

In July 2010, Toyota facelifted the Corolla Altis with new bumpers, grille, air dams, rear combination lamps, including the new 1.8-litre 2ZR-FE engine with Dual VVT-i. The 1.8 J was replaced with new 1.8 E as the base trim level. Mated with the new engines, the base but sporty 1.8 E received 6-speed manual transmission, while the 1.8 G and 2.0 V came with a CVT.

Malaysia

Corolla Altis 1.8 E (Malaysia; facelift)

As with Indonesia, the Corolla Altis was launched in March 2008 in Malaysia as well. It was offered in 5 variants – 1.8G, 1.8G Sporty, 1.8E, 1.8E Sporty and 1.6E. All variants were equipped with the 1ZZ-FE engine model with the exception of the 1.6E, that used the 3ZZ-FE engine. Manual transmission for the Corolla Altis was not available in Malaysia. Each of these 5 variants came with 4-speed automatic transmission with Super ECT.

Output for the 1.8 model was 97 kW @6000 rpm with 170 N⋅m (130 lb⋅ft)@4200 rpm. Output for the 1.6 model was 80 kW @6000 rpm with 145 N⋅m (107 lb⋅ft)@4400 rpm.

On 23 September 2010, a facelifted Corolla Altis was launched where the ZZ engines were replaced with ZR engines. Toyota Malaysia has designated the new variants as 2.0V, 1.8G, 1.8E and 1.6E. All variants' engines are mated with CVT – except the 1.6E remained with Super ECT 4-speed automatic transmission.[17]

Pakistan

2013 Toyota Corolla 1.6 GLi (Pakistan; facelift)

Toyota Corolla interior (Pakistan)

In Pakistan, the E140 Corolla was launched in August 2008. It was offered in 4 trim levels: XLi, GLi, Corolla Altis and Corolla Diesel. The facelift version was launched in April 2011.

The XLi is offered with Toyota's 85 hp, 1.3L 2NZ-FE engine. Pakistan was the only market to use the 2NZ-FE in the Corolla. This model does not have airbags, ABS or power windows. It is only offered in two colours, black and white.

The GLi is offered with the same 1.3L engine as the XLi but it comes equipped with ABS, and power windows. No airbags are offered on this model. Metallic colours are available in the GLi.

The Corolla diesel has 2 trim levels: Corolla 2.0D and the Corolla 2.0D Saloon.

The Corolla 2.0D comes equipped with Toyota's 1989 2C engine which produces 74 hp. The model does not have airbags, ABS or power windows. It is only offered in two colours: black and white.

The Corolla 2.0D Saloon has the same engine as the Corolla 2.0D. The model is only available with a 5-speed manual. The 2.0D Saloon comes equipped with alloy rims, side skirts, optitron speedometer, wooden inserts in the interior and a single driver side airbag. Optional extra on the model is the sunroof.

The facelift for the Corolla was launched on 11 April 2011. Initially only the XLi and GLi trims were available, with modifications to the front and rear lights, front grill, and bumpers, along with a revised interior colour scheme. The 1.8L model with the 1ZZ-FE engine was ceased and was replaced with the 1.6L model with the 1ZR-FE engine producing 122 bhp. The facelift Altis was launched in May 2011. The Altis comes with wood grain panel inserts in the interior, optitron speedometer, 5-spoke alloy rims, fog lamps, power windows, power seats, ABS with EBD, driver side SRS airbag and a 6-speed (forward) manual transmission. Optional on the Altis is a 4-speed super ECT automatic transmission and sunroof.

The GLi model is also offered with a 4-speed super ECT automatic transmission and the 1.6L 1ZR-FE engine. This version of the GLi is the same as the 1.3L GLi, albeit with the 1.6L engine and the 4-speed ECT automatic transmission, hence making it very similar to the Altis, save for the alloy rims and the wooden inserts in the interior.

Philippines

The tenth generation Corolla was launched as the Corolla Altis in the Philippines on 7 March 2008. It has three variants, the 2.0 and 1.6 V, both with automatic transmission, with the 1.6 G available in either manual or automatic transmission, and the 1.6 E, with manual transmission. The 1.6-litre engine is the same 3ZZ-FE motor used in the ninth generation Corolla, whereas the 2.0-litre variant is powered by the newer 3ZR-FE engine equipped with Dual VVT-i technology.

Toyota Motors Philippines upgraded the Corolla Altis in September 2010. The 2.0V is equipped with CVT to replace the 4-speed AT while the manual transmission for the 1.6 variants have 6 gears instead of the previous 5. All variants uses the newer ZR engines equipped with Dual VVT-i technology.[19]

A minor update to the Altis was launched in the later part of 2011. It now has a redesigned front and rear fascia and updated wheel designs. It now has powered windows and central-locking doors as standard. It has 4 variants:

  • 2.0 V (3ZR-FE)
    Sport variant, only available with a CVT and Paddle Shift. It has a mesh grille instead of the bar-type, smoked High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps with manual levelling, wipers with auto rain sensor, leather seats, powered seats and folding mirrors and sports package pre-installed.
  • 1.6 V (1ZR-FE)
    Range-topping variant, has almost the same specs as the 2.0V, except the mesh grille and sport packages, although these are optional. It is only available with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
  • 1.6 G (1ZR-FE)
    Middle variant, with an option for a 4-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. Has the same specs as the V variant without leather seats.
  • 1.6 E (1ZR-FE)
    Base variant, only available with a 6-speed manual transmission, with much fewer equipment and colour choices. No leather seats, no auto climate control (uses manual switch knobs), no fog lamps, no Toyota factory fitted alarm system.
Singapore

Corolla Altis 1.6 (Singapore; pre-facelift)

Singapore received the Corolla Altis with the same 1.6-litre 3ZZ-FE and 1.8-litre 1ZZ-FE engines used in the previous generation and continued to be marketed in both 1.6 and 1.8-litre versions. Automatic transmissions were only available to meet Euro IV emissions standards. In 2009 for a short period, the Altis was offered with racing bodykit alongside the Vios including a low bootlid spoiler, aftermarket 16" rims, red-leather stitching in the leather seats and brushed silver gear knob and pedals, with a "Racing" badge to differentiate its special run. Thereafter in late 2009, the trims for the 1.6 model were split into LX and Elegance with the latter having multi-spoke 15-inch rims, foglamps, leather seats and touchscreen audio head-unit or factory installed head-unit (for the facelift models) with reverse camera included.

In September 2010, the facelifted model of the Altis was introduced, utilising the latest Dual VVT-i engines (i.e. 1ZR-FE) for the 1.6-litre version and was upgraded to Euro V emissions standards. The 1.6 model was a more popular choice which made it Singapore's No.1 Car for consecutive years.[20]

There is also a Japanese market model (including Axio saloon and Fielder estate) available under parallel import status (parallel dealers buy the vehicle overseas and do the shipping, custom declaration, vehicle testing & warranty by themselves) from smaller agencies instead of buying from the local dealer. Grades available are the standard X variant and the higher-spec G variant. The Japanese market model, along with the Japanese market Camry and Wish, were once fitted with CNG and used on a small number of taxis there.

Sri Lanka

A Japanese-built version of the Corolla saloon is sold in Sri Lanka. The petrol version is offered with the 1.6-litre 3ZZ engine while the diesel version on offer has the 2-litre 2C engine with 5-speed manual transmission only. The body shape is same as ASEAN-marketed Corolla Altis design. This model is locally known as the Corolla 141.

Taiwan

The Corolla Altis was launched on 2 February 2008, and offered in the base J, popular mid-level G, and luxury V trim levels. All were powered by the 1.8-litre 1ZZ-FE engine with VVT-i. The 1.6-litre 3ZZ-FE engine with VVT-i., while the G and V are automatic only. In early 2009, the J's 1.6-litre 3ZZ-FE engine was replaced with a 2.0-litre 3ZR-FE engine, mated to an automatic transmission. The G and V trim levels feature smart entry and start system and automatic climate control.

In July 2010, Toyota facelifted the Corolla Altis with new bumpers, grille, air dams, rear combination lamps, including the newer 1.8-litre 2ZR-FE engine with Dual VVT-i. The 1.8 J was replaced with new 1.8 E as the base trim level. Mated with the new engines, the 1.8 E and 2.0 E came with a CVT.

Thailand

The Corolla Altis introduced in Thailand on 5 December 2007, which currently manufactures the Corolla Altis, is offered a total of four grades (J, E, G and V). Thailand was the only country that offered all existing grades of the new Altis, whilst export markets are only given a fraction of the Thai range in varying combinations.

The 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre variants of the facelifted Corolla Altis are fitted with Super CVT-i gearbox while the 1.6-litre variants remain using the same 4-speed auto gearbox as earlier.[21] Grades available for the Corolla Altis in Thailand varies from the basic 1.6J to the high spec 2.0V Navi variant. The facelifted 1.8-litre variant is fitted with the 2ZR-FBE Flexifuel engine.

North America[edit]

Corolla CE (Canada; pre-facelift)

The North American Corolla (E140) has a completely different exterior design from the Japanese Corolla Axio, and instead retains the ASEAN-marketed Corolla Altis design. This Corolla was unveiled on 31 October 2007, at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, started production in November 2007 and became available in US dealerships in January 2008, as a 2009 model. Only the saloon is sold, although the second generation Corolla Matrix (commonly referred to as just "Matrix"), which shares the E140 platform and engines, is considered the Corolla's hatchback counterpart.

The new Corolla has similar styling cues to its bigger brother, the Toyota Camry, while also having styling commonality with its little brother, the Yaris.[22] Overall driving dynamics have been improved compared to its predecessor through the use of a new Electronic Power Steering system as well as an upgraded suspension and improved chassis. The interior quality has been improved through the use of new materials and the addition of more room for passengers.[23] Reviewers note that the Corolla represents a gradual evolution over the previous iteration, without straying too far from the formula as a plain but reliable, fuel-efficient, simple and inexpensive form of transportation.[24][25]

A total of five trim levels (Standard, S, LE, XLE and XRS) are being offered in the US,[26] Canada has 4 trim levels (CE, LE, Sport (or S) and XRS). The LE and S have a similar MSRP and are very similar mechanically, the main differences being the S's spoiler, underskirts and silver interior highlights. The XRS also has a spoiler and underskirts like the S, but it has a larger 2.4 L engine, rear disc brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, and standard stability and traction control.

The base (standard and CE) and S trims are available with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission, while the LE (unlike the previous generation) and XLE are automatic only. The XRS grade is equipped with the 2.4-litre 2AZ-FE I4 engine, the same one used in the Camry, good for 158 hp (118 kW) and 162 lb⋅ft (220 N⋅m) of torque, with a choice of five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmissions.[27] The XRS takes 7.9 seconds to 60 mph (97 km/h) and 16.0 seconds for the quarter-mile. All other trims have Toyota's new 1.8-litre 2ZR-FE four-cylinder engine with 132 horsepower (98 kW) and 128 pound-feet (174 N⋅m) of torque.[27] Corollas with the 1.8-litre engine have an EPA fuel economy rating of 27 mpg city/35 mpg highway. The 2.4-litre is rated at 22 mpg/30 mpg with the automatic and 22 mpg/29 mpg with the manual. All engines are ULEV II certified. Toyota carried over the 13.2 gal fuel tank from earlier models.[28] In order to help improve fuel economy, the new Corolla uses an electric-power-steering unit instead of a belt-driven-hydraulic pump.

The Corolla offers technological conveniences such as an auxiliary audio jack for MP3 players, upgraded JBL audio, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a purse hook,[30] and a hands-free Bluetooth mobile phone system. Traction control and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) are standard on the top-of-the-line XRS, and are available as options on the US market LE and XLE trims.

In 2009 (2010 US model year vehicles), S models received the Optitron XRS gauges as standard equipment and new 16-inch steel wheel cover designs. XLE models were now available with an optional automatic climate control and a metallic finish to the steering wheel panels. All models now have The Star Safety System includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology brake override system as standard equipment.

In Mexico, the Corolla is offered in three trim levels: LE which comes standard with 16-inch steel wheels and wheel covers and with both manual and automatic transmission, then the mid-range XLE now comes with 16-inch alloy wheels and wood inserts in the interior and it is only available with an automatic transmission, and the XRS with the 2.4-litre 2AZ-FE I4 engine. The Mexican-spec Corolla is built at the Cambridge plant in Ontario. Canada, Mexico and the US are the only countries that receive the Corolla from this assembly plant.

Toyota Corolla (US; facelift)

For the 2011 model year, the XRS and XLE trims were discontinued for the US market (XRS is still available in Canada). The revised Corolla features new front and rear exterior styling and interior design changes, including a redesigned front grille, front and rear bumpers, new wheel designs, rear chrome garnish, rear combination lamps and boot lid. The interior adds a metallic trim (LE and S trims), new fabrics and a sport tilt/telescopic steering wheel (S grade). Corolla also features two new colours, Nautical Blue Metallic and Sandy Beach Metallic. New standard features for the LE trim include cruise control, Remote Keyless Entry, two additional audio speakers and variable intermittent windshield wipers with a mist cycle. The S trim adds standard cruise control, Remote Keyless Entry, 16-inch alloy wheels and a colour-keyed rear deck spoiler.[31]

In 2011 (for the 2012 model year), the Corolla received a few feature upgrades, including a new standard audio system with the USB port, Bluetooth and steering audio controls for the US and Canadian LE trim. The US Corolla L received power windows, power door locks and remote keyless entry.[32]

The Corolla comes standard with dual front airbags, front and rear row side curtain airbags and front row side torso airbags. ABS and active headrests are also standard.[33] Beginning in 2009 (2010 model year), Toyota's Vehicle Stability Control and traction control became standard on all trims.[34]

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Corolla its Top Safety Pick accolade. The Corolla earned a Good overall score in the front impact crash test, with Good marks in all six measured front impact categories. And the Corolla received another Good overall score for the side impact crash test. The Corolla nearly earned perfect marks in all nine measured side impact test categories but was given an Average score for rear passenger pelvis/leg protection. However the Corolla earned a Good rating in the side impact structure/safety category which is uncommon in compact car segment.[33]

Certain 2009 to 2010 model year Toyota Corolla (mainly US-built models with VIN# beginning in "1NX" or "2T1") were subject to the 2010 Toyota vehicle recalls regarding floor mat and accelerator pedal replacement.[36]

On 10 October 2012, Toyota issued a recall for 2009 model year Corolla and Matrix, along with ten other models. The recall notices stated that improperly lubricated driver's side power window master switch may develop a “notchy” or sticky feel, and that improper aftermarket lubrication may present a fire hazard. The repair involves lubricating the switch assembly with a special fluorine grease.[37]

South America[edit]

The tenth generation Corolla was launched in Brazil on 26 March 2008, and in Argentina in April 2008. It was produced in Brazil with two engines (a 1.6 and a 1.8-litre petrol engine – petrol/ethanol in Brazil) and three models: the base XLi, the intermediate XEi and the higher spec SE-G.

The 2.0 VVT-i Flex was added in March 2010. All versions are based on the wide-body saloon.

Bolivia

The Toyota Corolla E150 Made in Japan is sold in Bolivia by Toyota Bolivia. Grey imports allow sale in Bolivia US Spec from USA/Canada/Japan and Corolla Axio from Japan.

Jamaica

The tenth generation Corolla went on sale in Jamaica in October 2007. It is available in 1.5L and 1.8L models. The 1.5L breaks down into two models; the first of which comes without alloy wheels and fog lamps and the other with alloy wheels and fog lamps. The 1.8L model however, comes standard with leather interior and a sunroof. All models feature 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes.

E150 wide-body[edit]

The E150 version appears identical to the E140 wide-body, but has a subtle difference in the front and rear fender panel lines between the front and rear wheel arc region. Its chassis has a different, more sophisticated underpinnings based on the New MC platform. The global debut of the international variant of the tenth generation Corolla was staged in November 2006 at the Beijing Auto Show.[38]

China[edit]

Toyota Corolla (China; facelift)

The Corolla E150 was launched at the 2006 Beijing Auto Show and commenced production in 2007. It was built at its plant in Tianjin, and the facelift arrived in September 2010 for the 2011 model year. Engine and gearbox choices available were the 1.6-litre 1ZR-FE, 1.8 litre 2ZR-FE and the 2.0-litre 3ZR-FE paired with the 5-speed manual and 4 speed-automatic for the 1.6 GL models while the 6-speed manual and CVT gearboxes were standard on 1.8GL, 1.8GLX and 2.0GLX models. Pricing ranged between 131,800 yuan and 199,800 yuan (US$25,730–$39,000). Production ended in June 2014 when the Toyota Corolla (E180) replaced it.

Africa[edit]

South Africa

This generation of the Corolla was launched in South Africa in September 2007. Unlike in some countries, Corolla mainly refers to the saloon and not the hatchback, which in South Africa is known as the Toyota Auris. This generation is lower and wider than its predecessor. Toyota South Africa achieved a new all-time sales record for the South African motor industry in October 2007 with the Corolla (including Auris) leading the vehicle sales chart.[citation needed]

Toyota's manufacturing plant in Durban provides the Corolla, Hilux and Fortuner model exports to Europe. The European-spec Corolla made in Durban has been awarded a EURO NCAP 5-star rating (applies to all models in the range with knee airbags).[citation needed]

The car is available in the following models: 2.0 Diesel (Exclusive, Advanced); 1.8 Petrol (Exclusive, Exclusive Auto, Advanced); 1.6 Petrol (Advanced, Professional); and 1.4 Petrol (Advanced, Professional).

From the start of June 2014 the Corolla was re-launched as the Corolla Quest, which is a scaled-down model with less features as to target the entry level class B buyers. The Quest has been released with 1.6-litre engine in both 6-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmissions.[39]

The new Corolla was introduced to the Australian market on 18 May 2007. It was available in both saloon and hatchback models, with more safety features and higher levels of luxury. The new 1.8-litre 2ZR-FE Dual VVT-i - with variable valve timing for both intake and exhaust camshafts - was the only engine available for the Australian model. It promised better fuel economy than before and it regained its 100 kW power output. This figure decreased when the previous model's 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine dropped to 93 kW of power and 161 Nm of torque (from 171 Nm) in late 2005 to meet the 2006 Euro IV emissions requirements. A new 6-speed manual gearbox was standard, with a 4-speed automatic optional, despite speculation of a 5-speed like the new Honda Civic, a robotised 5-speed optional in the European Auris, or a CVT available in the Japanese model.

All Australian models of Corolla ran on the E150 platform, unlike the North American and Asian versions. Therefore, certain chassis parts were not interchangeable.

The new Corolla was available in five trim levels for the hatch (Ascent, Ascent Sport, Conquest, Levin SX and Levin ZR) and four for the saloon (Ascent, Ascent Sport, Conquest and Ultima - auto only), with the Corolla estate discontinued in Australia. The Levin ZR and Ultima grade featured HID xenon headlamps, rain sensing wipers, smart entry and start system and automatic climate control. Safety equipment levels was also improved with ABS brakes and dual airbags standard across the range, whilst side, curtain, driver's knee airbag and stability and traction control was optional on Ascent and Levin SX models and standard on Conquest, Levin ZR and Ultima models from December 2008 production. Other changes from December 2008 production included a revised six-speed manual transmission across all models except the auto only Ultima saloon that had improved gear ratios and the adoption of smart entry activation on front passenger and back door on Levin ZR model. Although the new hatch was badged Auris name in most world markets, the Corolla name was retained for the Australian market.

Tested at 9.7 seconds to 100 km/h for the manual model, it was more than half a second slower than its predecessor. This was likely on account of its weight, a hefty 1300 kg, which was curiously more than the Civic, unlike before wherein it was usually lighter. The automatic also has widely spaced ratios due to the lack of a fifth gear, giving sluggish acceleration, definitely not maximizing the engine potential. The Corolla received a four star ANCAP safety rating for occupant safety and a three star rating for pedestrian safety.[40]

New Zealand

Like Australia, all models are marketed under the Corolla nameplate. The range is similar to the Australian range with the same engines and drivetrain, however, models are designated as the base GX and higher spec GLX. What distinguishes the New Zealand range from the rest of the world is the addition of the Corolla Fielder estate version, which is otherwise only seen in the Japan market. With estate cars so popular in New Zealand, demand for the previous model was enough to justify it. New Zealand is the only export market for the estate. It is marketed as the Corolla GX Wagon with the 1NZ-FE engine. While the hatch and saloon feature the 1.8-litre 2ZR-FE Dual VVT-i, the estate features the Japanese market 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder, 16-valve, DOHC VVT-i engine. It is specified lower than the GX model hatch and saloon due to the estate being aimed at the price-conscious fleet market and priced accordingly. The hatchback gained two diesel motors in June 2008, with both the 1.4 and 2.0 D4-D engines joining the local range, albeit only with manual transmissions. The diesel cars are European spec models built in Japan, the 1.4 version having its motor shipped from Europe to be placed in the New Zealand spec cars.

Toyota was widely criticised by the motoring press for selling the new Corolla in Australia and New Zealand without Electronic Stability Control, which can reduce the chances of a fatal accident by up to 55 percent. Electronic Stability Control has been available on American versions of the Corolla for several years.[citation needed] The stability control concern was partially addressed with the diesel Corollas offering ESC as standard. The facelift in 2010 saw the addition of this device on all models bar the Japanese-spec estate.

Europe[edit]

In Ireland, the E150 series Corolla was launched in December 2006 for sale in January 2007. That made it one of the first countries in the world to receive this model. The saloon version is available along with the Auris (and an Auris van) with a 1.4-litre 97 bhp (71 kW) 4ZZ-FE petrol engine or a 1.4-litre 90 bhp D-4D diesel engine in Terra, Strata, Luna and Sol trim levels (estate is not available). European models are built in Turkey and Japan. Saloon versions are more popular in Ireland than the recently launched Auris.

However, British buyers were only offered the Auris, although Toyota did offer the E150 in Belgium, Luxembourg and Spain.

2008 corolla xrs

KERIAN

You’re in the market for a small, affordable car, but you’re also an enthusiast—you want something sporty. You have a budget of $23,000 or so. What do you buy?

Some of us here at Car and Driver would pick the Volkswagen GTI. It has loads of space and a high-quality interior, and it’s one of the best-performing cars on the road at the price. Heck, we’ve named it to our 10Best Cars list two years running. If not the GTI, the rest of the chuckleheads on Hogback Road would probably go for the Mazdaspeed 3. Fast, capable, and as useful as a GTI, the Mazda is also a two-time 10Best winner.

Previously, we wouldn’t have considered a Toyota Corolla, but that’s a possibility now with the 2009 Corolla XRS. With an as-tested sticker of $22,755, the XRS steps on the toes of some small cars that offer serious performance, including the new Chevrolet Cobalt SS and the Honda Civic Si.

Sport-Compact Let-Down

It would seem at first blush that Toyota aimed for the heart of the hopped-up micromachine market; after all, it checked all the boxes for creating a sporty compact. The XRS is faster and stops better than a base Corolla (7.9 seconds to 60 and 70 to 0 in 175 feet versus 8.6 seconds and 194 feet). It has more roll stiffness, a firmer suspension, and more grip (0.84 g versus 0.79 g) than a base Corolla. And the XRS is more aggressive looking than a base Corolla, thanks to tasteful and well-integrated body mods that don’t sear your eyeballs like the horrible, tumorlike growths found on some last-gen Corollas.

But Toyota missed the key ingredient in making a successful sport compact, and that’s fun. The XRS does what it does well, but none of it spectacularly. It goes about its business in a matter-of-fact fashion more reminiscent of a Camry than anything else. There’s no rorty exhaust note, no singing from under the hood, no verve to its motions. And let’s face it, a 0-to-60 run in the sevens isn’t exactly quick these days; the Mazdaspeed 3 does it in 5.4.

Steering, clutch, and shifter feel are nonexistent. The larger 158-horse, 2.4-liter inline-four is just as personality-free as the 132-hp 1.8-liter found in non-XRS Corollas. The suspension—tuned for firmness and generally quite capable, even though the Corolla’s ride sometimes borders on flinty—never begs to boogie down a back road. The XRS is a point-A-to-point-B toaster in a body kit.

Compact-Runabout Success

It is in this basic-transportation mission, though, where the XRS succeeds. If you don’t slide behind the wheel expecting to have your skull pop and your fingertips sizzle, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

The Toyota Corolla (E120/E130) is the ninth generation of compact cars sold by Toyota under the Corolla nameplate. In Japan, this series arrived to the market in August 2000; however, exports were typically not achieved until 2001 and 2002 depending on the market.

The sedan and station wagon arrived first in August 2000, followed by the five-door hatchback in January 2001, and the Europe-only three-door hatchback in 2002. Toyota supplemented the original styling with an edgier, hatchback-only styling treatment from 2002. Sedans and wagons sold in Japan adopted a new front-end design in 2004, although this version did not typically reach export markets. In other Asian markets and the Americas, the ninth generation Corolla (sedan and wagon only) had unique front and rear styling treatments with mild updates over the model's production run.

The E120/E130 model offered a longer 2,600 mm (102.4 in) wheelbase. It is built on a shortened V50 series Vista platform. From being marketed as a premium compact sedan, to an affordable hatchback, the ninth generation Corolla was designed as a "global" automobile to suit different market needs. This was one of Toyota's most versatile and most popular models ever produced.

The E120/E130 series Corolla has also spawned another separate hatchback model called the Matrix, sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico, which forms the basis of the Pontiac Vibe, which was in turn sold in Japan as the Voltz.

The E120 series was replaced by the E140 or E150 series in late 2006 or early 2007 but the E120 continued to be produced in China until 2017.[13]

The E120 Corolla won the What Car? magazine's "Car of the Year" award for 2002.

Japan[edit]

Toyota Corolla Fielder (facelift)

2004–2006 Toyota Allex (Japan)

For the Japanese market, trim levels for the Corolla Sedan were X Assista Package (Base), X, G and Luxel. In 2003, 1.5-litre 4WD sedans were made available in the Japanese market.

The station wagon model is called the Corolla Fielder in Japan and the five-door hatchback is called the Corolla RunX, launched in 2001. The Toyota Allex is a five-door hatchback that replaced the Sprinter sedan, a badge engineered version of the Corolla RunX. The Allex was exclusive to Toyota Netz Store locations, while the Corolla RunX was exclusive to Toyota Corolla Store locations.

JDM Corolla RunX trim levels are: RunX X (1500 cc 1NZ-FE engine), RunX S (1800 cc 1ZZ-FE engine) and RunX Z as well as RunX Z Aero (1800 cc 2ZZ-GE engine).

The first two of three JDM Allex trim levels were not differentiated with a visual badge, but offered similar packages to the RunX with the base model featuring the 1500 cc 1NZ-FE engine, the middle range featuring the 1800 cc 1ZZ-FE engine and the Allex RS180 featuring the 1800 cc 2ZZ-GE engine. Allex models offered a different colour range and had minor styling differences to the RunX, such examples include the plastic trim above the license plate area being chrome as opposed to body colour like on the RunX. Interior cloth patterns also differed from the RunX.

All RunX and Allex models featured ABS and driver/passenger airbags as well as all auto windows and tinted rear glass as standard.

The RunX X and Allex (base) models featured 14" steel wheels with optional alloys, optional side, front and rear skirting, automatic or manual gearbox options, and manual A/C.

RunX S and Allex (mid range) models featured 15" steel wheels with optional 16" alloys, optional side, front and rear skirting, automatic or manual gearbox options, optional front fog lamps, manual or automatic climate controlled A/C.

RunX Z, Z Aero and Allex RS180 models featured 15" steel wheels or optional 16" alloys, optional (but mostly purchased as standard) side, front and rear skirting and automatic climate controlled A/C as standard. These models offered an extra 4-speed tiptronic automatic or 6-speed manual transmission, opposing the rest of the lineup.

The Corolla Spacio (Verso in Europe) moved on to the new platform, with later models adding a third row of fold-down seating in the back. The Corolla sedan sold in Japan also differed slightly as compared to the other markets with a slightly different headlamp and taillamp design.

Australasia (Australia and New Zealand)[edit]

2004-2007 Toyota Corolla Ascent hatchback (ZZE122R; Australia)

The E120 Corolla sold in Australia was available as a sedan, wagon and five-door hatchback (Seca). Trim levels offered were the Ascent, Ascent Sport, Conquest, Levin and Ultima. A small number of models were built in South Africa, with the high-performance Sportivo (hatchback only) built exclusively in South Africa. South African-built Corollas have a vehicle identification number starting with A; Japanese-made examples have a VIN starting with J.[14] The Sportivo was powered by the 2ZZ-GE engine and a six-speed manual gearbox, while the other models had the 1ZZ-FE. Minor changes in 2004 included the grille and replacing the headlights with a "tear drop" type. The Sportivo was discontinued in Australia from 2006 due to the prohibitive costs involved in modifying the engine to comply with Euro IV emissions.

All the other models had their engine power and torque reduced with October 2005 production from 100 to 93 kW (134 to 125 hp) and from 171 to 161 N⋅m (126 to 119 lb⋅ft) to comply with Euro IV. From May 2006, the Ascent and Ascent Sport models were upgraded with standard front power windows and passenger airbag, while the Conquest models had ABS as standard. The equipment upgrades were not applied to the wagon, which ceased production in August 2006.

In New Zealand, the Corolla hatch was offered in three trim levels: GL, GLX & T Sport. The GL proved most popular and differed from the GLX only by a lack of woodgrain trim, rear electric windows, passenger airbag and alloy wheels. GLX models mostly featured tan coloured interior with woodgrain trim, front fog lights and alloy wheels as standard. The T Sport model offered a sportier look with spoiler, side skirts, front fog lights and 15-inch alloy wheels as standard. All models had the 1.8-litre 1ZZ-FE, offered either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual and had manual A/C as standard. The Corolla sedan was offered only in the GL and GLX trim level, whilst the station wagon offered in the GL trim only.

Asian/Americas version[edit]

Asia[edit]

2001 Toyota Corolla Altis 1.6E (Thailand)

An upmarket version of the ninth generation Corolla, dubbed the Corolla Altis, is manufactured and sold in countries such as India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. It debuted in mid 2001 as a bigger and more luxurious variant of the Japanese Corolla, featuring unique interior and exterior panels that separates it from the basic Corolla. The Corolla Altis is targeted at consumers who prefer more comfort than the standard Corolla but do not wish to buy the more luxurious Camry. Two versions of engines are available: the 81 kW (110 bhp), 1.6 L 3ZZ-FE engine and the 100 kW (134 bhp), 1.8 L 1ZZ-FE engine, both with VVT-i technology.

In 2004, the Corolla Altis received its first facelift.[17] Changes include a new grille design, a sleeker front bumper, redesigned fog lamps, new LED tail lights, different alloy wheels and minor interior updates (auto climate control became a standard feature in lower end variants). Two years later, to keep up with its newer competitors, the Corolla Altis received its second facelift. Exterior changes include another redesigned grille, redesigned chrome rear license plate ornament, a new third LED brake light, and new audio switches on the steering wheel. A new aerokit and new wing mirrors with signal indicators (similar to the 2007 Camry) is available as an optional package in Malaysia.

A low end variant of the Corolla Altis is also branded as the Toyota Limo, featuring lower spec and intended for taxi businesses in Thailand. It is not to be confused with the low end taxi version of the Toyota Vios which is also called Toyota Limo in Indonesia.

In Malaysia, the Corolla Altis was introduced in mid 2001. Notably in Malaysia the models sold had tail lights that are identical to the models that are sold outside of Asia and Southeast Asia. It features three-round insets for the tail lamps instead of the standard single round inset used in other Asian markets. These were later replaced with the standard single round insets from 2004. Both the 1.6 L and 1.8 L models were sold in Malaysia.

In Singapore, Toyota's exclusive authorised dealer Borneo Motors originally sold the Japanese version of the Corolla in 1.5L (LX,XLi) and 1.6L (LX). The facelift Japanese Corolla was launched in 2003, featuring dual headlamp lamp clusters, updated tail lamp design and front bumper and chrome horizontal grille. It was later replaced with the Corolla Altis in 2004 with 1.6L and 1.8L variants in automatic transmissions only. The 1.8L model offered optitron display for the speedometer clusters, rain sensors and a zig-zag automatic gearshift layout and some 1.8 model batches included a full bodykit as standard. In late 2007, the Corolla Altis was offered in a limited run where the 1.6 models featured interior silver panel trims, and updated double-din headunit, 15” double-spoke rims, honeycomb grille (adapted from the Corolla S) and bodykit with a boot-lid spoiler with a special Limited Edition sticker at the boot.

In Philippines, most of the cars sold came in these following colours: Freedom White, Xtreme Black, Silver, and Flaxen (Gold).

In terms of product lifespan (production lasted for seven years) and number of units sold, the Corolla Altis easily outlived its Corolla predecessors, making it currently the most popular Corolla generation in Southeast Asia.

ASEAN engines:

  • 3ZZ-FE — 1.6 L (1598 cc) I4, 16 Valve, DOHC, VVT-i, EFI with 3-way catalytic converter, Maximum Output: 110 hp / 6,000 rpm and Maximum Torque: 150 Nm / 4,400 rpm.
  • 1ZZ-FE — 1.8 L (1794 cc) I4, 16 Valve, DOHC, VVT-i, EFI with 3-way catalytic converter, Maximum Output: 134 hp / 6,000 rpm and Maximum Torque: 171 Nm / 4,200 rpm.

The ninth generation Corolla was sold in China as the Corolla EX through Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor Co. Ltd. alongside the newer tenth-generation Corolla. It was also known as the 花冠 (Hua Guan) which is a direct translation of 'Corolla' (crown of the flower) in Mandarin Chinese.[13] Three trim levels were available namely: Value, Excellence & Elegance. The Excellence and Elegance editions were offered with a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox while the Value edition was only available in manual transmission. The Corolla EX was powered by a 1ZR-FE dual VVT-i engine.[18] An electric variant was produced called the Ranz EV by the automotive marque called Ranz which was owned by Sichuan FAW Toyota Motor. The production of the Corolla EX commenced in February 2004 and ended on 17 February 2017 after a 13-year run.

North America[edit]

2003–2004 Toyota Corolla CE (US)

In 1998, Masao Saito's E120 design proposal was chosen and frozen for production in early 1999, with patents filed on 22 July 1999 at the Japan Patent Office under patent number 1120997. The North American model was designed to be bigger than the Japanese Corolla, and was based on the Corolla Altis distributed in Southeast Asia. It came to the United States in March 2002 for the 2003 model year, following its unveiling at the 2002 North American International Auto Show in January. Trim levels offered are CE, LE, and S, continuing from the previous generation.[19] Production for the ninth-generation Corolla ended in December 2007, with the tenth-generation Corolla introduced in January 2008 as a 2009 model. The Corolla carried over the 1ZZ-FE of the previous generation, but updated with a plastic intake manifold. Power output was increased to 130 hp. The Corolla grew in height from the previous generation, and used larger 15-inch wheels, which resulted in increased size and weight compared to the previous generation. The S trim level featured sportier front and rear bumpers and side skirts, but maintained side skirts and fog lights like the previous model.

In 2004, for the 2005 model year, the exterior styling was refreshed with a new front bumper and grille, clear rear turn signal lenses, and updated wheel covers for the CE and LE trims. Interior differences include white on black Optitron gauges for the LE trim, a rear center headrest, and an updated radio head unit. Certain models were updated with Electronic Throttle Bodies and an Anti-Lock Braking System. The Manual transmission was dropped for the CE and LE trims, and was only available on the S. [4]

2005–2008 Toyota Corolla S (US)

This was the first generation of the Corolla to be available in Mexico, and was offered in 3 trim levels: the base CE, the mid-range LE and S, the latter the only trim to offer a manual transmission.

The base CE or “Classic Edition” trim came standard with manual windows and locks, but was available with optional power windows and locks. The mid-range LE or “Luxury Edition” came with blue gauge faces with dark blue numbers and orange needles. It was also fitted with mock-wood interior accents. Some models came with a 2-compartment center console and leather seats. On the exterior, the LE and above models came with colour-keyed mirrors and door guards, and blacked out B-pillars. 15-inch 6 spoke Alloy wheels were optional, as well as a rear spoiler. The S or “Sport” trim adds side skirts, front and rear ground effects, a rear spoiler, and 15-inch 6 spoke aluminium alloy wheels as standard. Some models were available with blacked out headlight housings. On the interior, the colour scheme is changed to black, with subtle chrome accents. The S trim also adds a gauge set with white numbers and red markings and needles for a sporty appearance.

North American market engines:

  • 2002–2008 — 1ZZ-FE – 1.8 L (1794 cc) I4, 16-valve DOHC, FI, VVT-i, 130 hp (97 kW) – CE, LE, S (TRD 1.8L Supercharger is available for this engine)
  • 2005 & 2006 – 2ZZ-GE – 1.8 L (1796 cc) I4, 16-valve DOHC, FI, VVTL-i, 170 hp (127 kW) – XRS
2007 Toyota Corolla LE (US)

Shown as a concept in November 2003,[20] a sporty XRS model (ZZE131), introduced in 2004 between the 2005 and 2006 model years only, featured the high-revving 127 kW (170 bhp) at 7,600 rpm, 172 N⋅m (127 lb⋅ft) at 4,400 rpm 2ZZ-GE engine and 6-speed manual from the Toyota Celica GT-S and Lotus Elise.[21] The 2ZZ-GE motor was actually developed with collaboration from Yamaha motors (like other wide-angle head GE, GTE, and GZE Toyota engines), and uses similar technologies found in its sibling motor the 1ZZ-FE. The XRS was very similar to its Corolla S cousin in appearance, however there are significant changes to the mechanical components. The 2ZZ-GE uses a cable throttle (unlike the electronic throttle control of the 2ZZ-GE in the later years of the Celica GT-S) with a lift set-point at 6,700 rpm and an 8,200 rpm redline. The close ratio C60 6-speed manual transmission, also found in the Toyota Matrix XRS, was the only transmission available. The sport-tuned suspension lowered the Corolla XRS by 12.7 millimetres (0.5 in). A Yamaha designed brace spans the front strut towers as well as a X-brace for the rear towers. The steering column is thicker and the power steering system is unique.

The rear drum brakes from the S (and other Corolla trims) were replaced with the drum in disc brakes from the Celica GT-S and the ABS system was upgraded to a four-channel with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution).[22] Absent are Traction Control and Stability Control Systems (VSC). The Corolla XRS was given 5 spoke 16-inch painted aluminium alloy wheels (similar to the Matrix) and shod with Michelin Pilot Primacy P195/55-R16 summer performance tires and equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).[23][24] The wheels are the most noticeable difference in exterior appearance from the Corolla S that features 6-spoke 15-inch alloy wheels. Other exterior differences being the key coloured grill surround (other trims have chrome), XRS badge at the back, rear discs, and the slightly lowered appearance.

Interior of 2005-2008 Toyota Corolla S (US)

The interior features a three-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel from the Celica, and leather shift knob, and leather shift boot from the Matrix XRS. Optitron[25] gauges like those found in Lexus vehicles replaced the standard red on white gauges. The interior has dark blue plastic with silver accenting and beige pillars from the bottom of the windows to the beige headliner. The dashboard is black.[26] The front seats were replaced with manually adjustable sports seats with more side bolster. The 4 main seats are black cloth with a blue hexagon pattern and black cloth sides. The front floor mats are from the Corolla S. Due to the rear X-brace, the rear seats do not fold 60-40 like those found in the other Corolla trims. Colour choices for the Corolla XRS were: Super White II, Silver Streak Mica, Phantom Gray Pearl, Black Sand Pearl, Impulse Red Pearl, and Indigo Ink Pearl.

The Corolla XRS was on sale in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Toyota estimated to sell approximately 5,000 Corolla XRS per year. Production numbers have not been released, however it has been speculated that less than 7,000 were produced (unofficially estimated at 6,619 units). Unofficially, Toyota Canada has disclosed that 818 were sold MY (model year) 2005 and only 279 MY 2006, bringing a total of 1,097 Corolla XRS being sold in the country over the 2 model years. This limited production and minimal exterior differences resulted in the Corolla XRS being a unique sleeper hiding among the extremely common Corolla S and is the final outright performance designed model from Toyota that was targeted towards "single male buyers"[27] before the complete switch to the Toyotas' Scion youth oriented brand.

The Corolla XRS introduced in 2009 as a successor used the 2.4L 2AZ-FE from the Toyota Camry and Scion tC and was available with a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. While the 2009 Corolla XRS caters to a greater range of customers with the available automatic transmission, it is also significantly slower and although its design intentions are similar, it is a different car from the original 2005–2006 Corolla XRS.

To commemorate 20 years of building Toyota Corolla in Canada, Toyota Canada offered the 20th Anniversary Edition Corolla CE for the 2008 model year, which includes power door locks with keyless entry, cruise control, power windows with driver's side auto down, special edition badging, aluminium alloy wheels and power sunroof.[28]

South America[edit]

In Brazil, the Corolla sedan and the Corolla Fielder wagon are built locally. It is available with the 1.6L 3ZZ-FE engine (sedan only) and the 1.8L 1ZZ-FE. The sedan is externally identical to both US and ASEAN (Altis) models, but the Fielder has different styling from the Japanese version. Starting from the 2008 model (released May 2007), the 1.8L 1ZZ-FBE engine has flexible fuel technology. Unlike most other flexible fuel vehicles in Brazilian market, the Corolla Flex has the same power ratings either with ethanol or petrol.[29]
