Toyota releases 2007 Corolla in JapanEnlarge Photo
In its home, Toyota is sticking with the Corolla nameplate but with the Axio tag added for its sedan and Fielder name for the wagon. For its tenth generation, Toyota engineers focused on improving quality levels and interior space rather than performance. Inside, the car gets a reversing camera as standard and double-folding rear seats that move at the touch of a single button.
Driving the wheels is a new version of the 1.8L four-cylinder mated with Toyota’s Super CVT-i gearbox developing 100kW and 175Nm of torque. There’s also a base version with a 1.5L motor and conventional five-speed manual transmission as well as a high performance four-wheel drive model.
