Toyota’s Corolla offers something for everybody well, almost. This lineup includes the FX and FX16 hatchbacks; a station wagon; two SR5 and GT-S; sporty coupes, and now the Wagon.

This entry-level car had a suggested retail price of than $1,800 and became an instant hit. In fact, of the Corolla, Toyota, which established itself on the American in 1958, became the number two in the country in 1970. Not too many later, Toyota did become the one import, again with the of the Corolla, which has more 3-million sales to date.

That was a long time ago and the Corolla is still the entry car for Toyota, it can’t very be considered a cheap car. The of the yen and the general upgrading of all cars, has the Corolla sort of an upscale car, which, incidently, is not a bad to be in; there are consumers who are willing to for upscale small cars.

The car, the all-new All-Trac is not only one of the most upscale of cars it is also one of the newest around. If you haven’t seen don’t feel neglected; aren’t many of them on the In fact, the test car was the first one by J.H. Bennett Toyota, Hanover Ave. Allentown.

Although June may not be the time most people think of drive vehicles, these full-time four-wheeling passenger are becoming increasing popular more and more models offered each year. The four-wheel drive car is designed to run the dry as well as the snow covered so it is a year around vehicle. And it has a full-time system one does not to worry about making

Obviously, there was little to use the test car on snow or ice but I did drive a All-Trac in the winter through of miserable weather and it did just And since the system is similar is no reason to think the Corolla Wagon won’t do the same.

The Corolla All-Trac Wagon’s all-wheel drive system a center differential to distribute torque equally between the and rear axles. On manual models, an interior switch the center differential, synchronizing the and rear axles for maximum traction. On automatic transmission the transaxle automatically locks the differential when necessary.

The vehicle was equipped with a automatic transmission, which the driver really didn’t to do any thinking. Or, at least as far as the four-wheel system went. The automatic will no doubt further the appeal of this vehicle.

Add some rounded and flush body panels to set it off. The test car also had the appeal of a bright red exterior.

dimensions on the Wagon include a of 95.7 inches, overall 171.5 inches; width, inches; height, 54.5 and curb weight, 2,450 The interior has a passenger volume of 88 cubic feet, which is what to expect out of a small wagon. Front seat is very good, though the seat will be a little for larger adults. Cargo with the back seat in measures a roomy 31 cubic

Driving the All-Trac doesn’t a whole lot of effort and it is doubtful if drivers can detect the difference it and a two-wheel drive vehicle. drive the way you usually do and there be any problems. There will, of be a difference on slippery surfaces but on dry there’s no need to be concerned.

is responsive and during hardmaneuverings is, again, little difference the feel of a two-wheel drive The basic suspension features struts all around and rack-and-pinion

Because of the four-wheel configuration, the application of power is somewhat Press the pedal to the metal a standstill and the All-Trac takes off no squeal and no torque steer. At acceleration does feel but a look at the speedometer will a steady, though not spectacular,
