The 2016 Toyota Corolla: North America’s Best-Selling Compact
Sleek, sophisticated and fun to drive :: Choice of models and trim levels
TORONTO, ON | August 24, 2015 | media.toyota.ca
Corolla is North America’s number one selling compact car* – and for good reason. Corolla is more than the sum of its parts – combining Toyota’s legendary reputation for quality, durability and reliability with stylish looks, sophisticated features and a fun-to-drive personality.
“All built-in-Canada Corolla models deliver style and efficiency, plus a generous complement of standard features and flexible upgrade packages making it easy to find the Corolla that fits everyone’s needs and budget,” said Larry Hutchinson, Vice President of Toyota Canada Inc. “The compact sedan market is fiercely competitive in Canada, yet every Corolla offers enjoyable performance plus surprising levels of comfort and features that make it a winning choice, year after year.”
All Corollas are built around a powerful and efficient 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine mated to a responsive six-speed manual, a sophisticated four-speed automatic, or an advanced Intelligent Shift CVTi-S. With a suspension that has been designed to maximize handling and reduce vibration, you can be sure that the Corolla is fun to drive.
Corolla’s styling is bold and expressive, with sleek sculpting to give this compact a sleek drag co-efficient of just 0.28. Inside, the Corolla expresses craftsmanship with a stylish, and functional cabin displaying attention to detail not typically found in its segment. Ornamental stitching, pinstriped accents and piano black gloss trim with metallic touches convey an upscale, sporty image. Thoughtfully designed and engineered front seats offer plenty of support for those up front, while maximizing room for those riding in the back.
The 2016 Corolla makes an immediate impression, with LED headlamps standard on all models. Other standard features include audio systems with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, power windows and door locks, the versatility of a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, power adjustable, colour-keyed and heated side mirrors, and a full complement of active and passive safety systems, including the six active technologies in the Toyota Star Safety System.
All this, plus the Corolla’s Canadian-built reputation for legendary quality, durability and reliability –makes Corolla not only easy to love, but also easy to justify.
