Toyota Corolla Model

Introduced in 1966, the Toyota Corolla was an immediate success with consumers in the subcompact and compact car market and became the best-selling car in the world less than 10 years after being introduced. Since that time, it has maintained its popularity. In fact, in July 2013, Toyota achieved the impressive milestone of selling 40 million Corollas.

The name Corolla comes from the Latin and means “small crown”, a reference to the Toyota Crown sedan it was derived from. The model has undergone several major redesigns and is currently on its eleventh generation which was introduced to the market in 2012. In its earliest form, the Toyota Corolla was rear-wheel drive but newer models have incorporated front-wheel drive.

The Toyota Corolla’s popularity can be attributed to the its reliability, advanced safety features, fuel economy, and comfortable interior. It has elevated practicality and everyday appeal and continues to lead the compact market in sales and innovation with consumers worldwide purchasing over a million Corollas each year.
