History of Toyota Corolla
The Toyota Corolla has a rich and extensive history. Produced by Toyota as a line of compact cars, the Corolla was first introduced in 1966 before going on to become the best selling car in the world by 1974, and remaining incredibly popular ever since. Traditionally the Corolla''s competitors have been the Nissan Sunny, introduced the same year as the Corolla, and later the Honda Civic. Early models were mostly rear-wheel drive, while more recent models have been front-wheel drive, adapting to best suit the modernising technology. Globally there have been 11 generations of the Toyota Corolla to date, although not all of these have been available in the UK and later models were replaced by the Toyota Auris. The Corolla has an excellent reputation with figures showing that 90% of Corollas sold in the past 10 years are still on the road today, earning them the title of longest-lasting vehicles of any full line automotive manufacturer. In 2013 Toyota announced that 40 million Corollas had been sold over its 11 generations.
First, Second And Third Generation Toyota Corolla (1966 - 1979)
The first generation Corolla launched in 1966 and was initially only available in Japan, before beginning exports to Australia and then America in 1968. Initially the engine was meant to be for the under 1,000cc tax class, but was updated late in the design process to be 1,077cc in order to outdo the Datsun 1000 - its main competitor. 1970 saw the launch of the second gen E20 Corolla, which featured a more rounded body shape and two more engines added to the lineup. The MkIII or E30 launched in 1974 and saw great success in North America. Europe received the same body styles as the US, offered with a 1.2 litre 3K engine. In 1979, the last year of the E30 in Europe, the car''s exterior trim was redesigned for the Deluxe model with new tail lights and another new grille.
Fourth, Fifth, Sixth And Seventh Generation Toyota Corolla (1979 - 1995)
The fourth gen Corolla, known as the E70, was released in Japan in 1979 and was the last to have the entire lineup in rear-wheel-drive configuration. Most European E70-series Corollas were fitted with the 1.3 litre 4K engine, producing 60 PS, although there was also a 1.6 litre 2T engine with 75 PS.The fifth gen Corolla, launched in 1983, was regarded as the most popular model. Known as the E80, it moved the Corolla into front-wheel drive. In European markets the MkV Corolla had a variety of engines including a 1.3 litre l4 8-valve SOHC carb and a 1.8 litre l4 diesel.
The sixth gen Corolla had a more rounded, aerodynamic look, and was known as the E90 after its launch in 1987. This generation had a much more refined feel, with a wide array of trim levels and engines ranging from a 1.3 litre to a 1.8 litre OHC diesel on European models. In 1991 the Corollas were redesigned for the seventh generation launch, with a rounded shape that was very popular in the 90s. A three- and five-door hatchback was available in Europe, and in the UK trim levels were marketed as the S, C and CDX.
Eighth, Ninth And Tenth Generation Toyota Corolla ( 1995 - 2013)
The E110 was the eighth generation Corolla sold by Toyota. It shared a platform with its predecessor, and used the same engineering in a bid to save money. In Britain, the models were 1.3 and 1.6 GS, 1.6 GLS, 1.6 CD and 2.0D GS, and featured similar sides and interior to the Japanese model.
The ninth generation launched in 2000 and was offered in three-door hatchback, five-door hatchback, saloon, wagon or estate forms for the European market. In 2002 the five-door Corolla hatchback achieved a four star Euro NCAP safety rating. The tenth generation Corolla launched in 2006, although it was replaced by the Toyota Auris in European and Japanese markets.
