1966 saw the birth of the very first Corolla (Crown of Flowers). Led by development leader, Tatsuo Hasegwa, the Corolla designers set out to design a car that would capture the hearts of the general public. 47 years, 11 generations, and 40 million units later, the Corolla has broken all records on the way to becoming the best-selling model of all time. I think the original designers of the Corolla, can rest at ease, that our hearts have indeedbeen captured.
2014 brings the 11th generation Corolla into our world with a bang. The launch of this latest model, introduces new dynamic exterior styling, premium interior finish, and the legendary Corolla reliability and quality. Join us as we explore this iconic car in more detail.
