In the penultimate generation of the Corolla of the 2010-2013 period was dominated by the “pensioner” in the modern sense of exterior design with flat and smooth features. Although, it should be noted that old-school-solid Corolla the audience loved and still respects the “secondary housing”. In the eleventh generation extreme body appearance E160 Corolla simultaneously became “fashionable youth”, and the current facelift looks even more rapidly, sporty, sharp and slightly audacious. Although I’m not sure that traditionalists from Toyota themselves like “okurivanie”.
The current Corolla combines the tradition of the classic sedan, which she loves the older generation, and this has a lot of damn appealing: a catchy poster view “three quarters”, headlights and taillights, the shape slightly resembling swords, aggressive “gills” in the front bumper.

And one revolution
About the brakes I usually don’t say: I, frankly, haven’t seen cars where the designers were wrong with the performance of collector, diameter calipers or other elements of the system, and the braking performance did not meet the weight or dynamics of the car. Impeccable, of course, the brakes in the Corolla. But first I had to get used to the unusual nonlinearity of the pedal stroke: too much of the braking force lies in the first third of its stroke, and the initial shift pedal is a little tight. Because of this, there is (especially at low speeds), the effect of excess braking and systematic levania. However, after a couple of days I got used to it and stopped noticing this.
The history of the model
Toyota Corolla is the elder of the automotive world! The current generation is the eleventh in a row. The model was born as much in 1966, and to date has sold almost forty five million copies worldwide. The car fell twice in the Guinness book of records as the leader in terms of sales and production. As of 2016 onn roads traveled 685 000 Koroll, 671, 000 Magic, 000 577 Logan.
The fifth Corolla was released in 1983, and its key feature was front-wheel drive. Sixth generation (1987-1992), and all subsequent, were front-wheel drive, sizes again rose slightly. The seventh and eighth generation was represented by the evolution of the known technical solutions and the expanding range of trim levels, securing the legendary reliability of the Corolla. In particular, and victories in some of the world’s largest rally. The ninth generation was produced from 2002 to 2007 and became a best seller: Corolla produced Toyota plants in 16 countries! The range of powertrains has been expanded through the “robot”, and fans of hot hatchbacks was meant for the three-door T-Sport with a 192-horsepower engine.
The tenth generation was launched in 2006, noting the fortieth anniversary of the Corolla. The reliability of the model was raised by the emphasis on close to the Camry sedan and hatchback selection in conventionally separate model – the Auris. The current eleventh generation, characterized by catchy modern design, called E160 appeared in 2013. The restyling of this generation experienced the end of 2016.
