Toyota is one of the world's most recognisable automobile manufacturers and produces a wide range of vehicles. Followers of high-octane motorsports and sedate family drivers know the brand well. The company started as a small, independently owned motor company in 1937 but soon forged a reputation for making enduring and hardwearing vehicles. It grew exponentially and, by the year 2008, Toyota had officially replaced General Motors as the world's largest automobile manufacturer.
The Toyota Corolla is one of the bestselling cars of the last decade, and the popularity of the vehicle attests to its reliability and functional design. The Corolla was first introduced in 1966 and proved to an instant hit. It became a bestseller across the globe by 1974. Toyota announced in 2013 that the company had sold some 40 million Corollas worldwide. The series has undergone several redesigns over the years but has never moved away from being a functional family orientated vehicle. Both new and used Corollas are functional and robust cars, which provide good value for the money. The cars are renowned for being hardy and reliable and because they have excellent fuel consumption. Some models travel 100 kilometres for only around 6 litres of fuel consumed. With the model selling so numerously around the world, you can easily locate secondhand Corollas in South Africa and across the continent.
The Toyota Corolla has been completely redesigned for its 11th commercial release. The 2014 Corolla range features the Corolla L, the cheapest and most functional vehicle in the range. It sports numerous modern features, including full Bluetooth connectivity and all the other modern conveniences you would expect, including USB ports, LED headlights, and power windows. Because the car is family oriented, it has numerous safety features, including Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and no fewer than eight airbags. Other new Corollas in the range include the Corolla LE, a similar family car with the addition of reversing cameras and projected path technology; the Corolla LE Eco, which provides some of the best kilometres per litre fuel consumption available on the market; and the sleek and sporty Corolla S.
