Get to Know the Corolla History
The Toyota Corolla began in Japan in 1966, although it didn't arrive in the United States until the 1969 model year. For 1971, it got a longer wheelbase, automatic transmission, and additional horsepower. In 1983, Toyota redesigned their engines to have an SOHC design and added fuel injection to Japanese models. Available FWD was added for 1984. By 1993, the Corolla had grown enough to leave behind its subcompact designation. At this point, the Corolla had a standard fully independent suspension. By 2003, this Toyota had grown again, in both size and power. By 2009, the Corolla offered iPod connectivity, Bluetooth, audio controls on the steering wheel, and traction control. The 11th generation arrived in 2014 with an overall style and list of features that you will recognize. This generation is when the highly efficient LE Eco trim level made its debut, expanding the Corolla's appeal.
