‘People are in nuclear families out in the suburbs, means they’ll need cars to get around. A motorization is coming to Japan.’

The first-generation Corolla had a number of specifications, systems, etc. were the first of their in Japan and for Toyota.

At the time, shift transmissions were however, Toyota recognized floor-shift transmission was already in Europe and would be required in the highway age. Thus the was equipped wîth a four-speed transmission before other were. Also, after research and testing, MacPherson suspension — which allows for a engine compartment and makes it to lighten the vehicle and reduce costs — was adopted for the first in domestic mass production.
