One of the bestselling cars in North America and the world is the Toyota Corolla! The Corolla was introduced in 1966 and it became the bestselling car worldwide within a short span of time. And Toyota has managed to sell more than forty million pieces of this amazing car! Isn’t that something?
Toyota recently introduced the 2014 edition of this amazing car in North America and boy, has it stirred up some curiosity or what? Costing a shade below $16,000, the Corolla offers absolute value for money because it is so affordable. The facelift model is a complete change from the outgoing model, with everything from the headlights to the complete body style being changed. One can say it is an absolutely new car bearing no similarity with the outgoing model except for the name and badge.
The new Toyota Corolla car features all new LED headlamps, sport front and rear fascias, fog lamps, chrome exhaust tip and 17inch aluminum alloy wheels! That was the exterior but Toyota has also managed to completely revamp the interior of the new car as well. Step inside the 2014 Corolla and you will see a complete difference from the outgoing model.
The interior exudes craftsmanship! It features slimmed down front seat backs which has resulted in more leg room for the rear seat passengers. The 2014 model also includes a climate control and steering wheel mounted controls. The steering wheel itself is a 3-spoke tilt and telescopic one, which is great because now you can easily adjust the position of it according to your specifications.
And to make reversing the car easier, the Corolla features a reverse camera as well. The display of the camera is on the huge touch screen display of the audio system.
Now let’s talk about the power of the new Corolla. The new car features the same 1.8 L engine found in the previous model. The 1.8 L, 4 cylinder, 16 valve DOHC engine is capable of producing 132 HP, which is more than enough for cruising on the freeways! Though you won’t be winning any races but you’ll sure get comfortably to your destination without ever having to feel the lack of power.
The 2014 Corolla also comes with 8 standard airbags, which do their job pretty well to protect the occupants of the car! It also features ABS and EBD as standard.
So all in all, the new Corolla is a great car especially for people looking to buy an affordable yet exceptional VFM vehicle.
