Toyota Corolla Models and Corolla History

The Corolla entered 1998 with a brand new design that included a new engine, new sheet metal and new safety updates. Following the new design, much was the same for 1999. The VVT-I engine technology reduced emissions and bumped hp by 5 for the 2000 Corolla. A slight restyle to the front and rear fascias alongside a new front grille and trunk release handle rounded out the updates for the 2001 Corolla.

 

No changes were in store for 2002. But in 2003, an all-new Corolla debuted with more interior space, more luxury features, and more standard equipment, albeit at a pricing increase. The Corolla would not receive any changes for 2004, with the XRS sport model debuting in 2005. Model years 2006-2008 saw no changes. For 2009, an all-new Corolla was unveiled that offered much of the same with a new design, new tail lamps, optional GPS and optional 2.4-liter engine.

 

The addition of standard stability control was the only update for 2010. Minor updates to interior and exterior styling were the only updates for 2011. Standard, all-powered accessories and a new sound system marked the changes for 2012. An updated audio system and front grille greeted buyers in 2013. In 2014, an all-new Corolla rolled off the assembly line.
