(The new Corolla has been in Toyota showrooms 5 May 2014.)

As Glenn Crompton, President for Sales and Marketing, a new model arrives, the previous car is consigned to the history books. Not so for the Toyota Corolla. Launched in this model was the most Corolla to date and helped motoring icon achieve status as the world’s most car – the nameplate amassed a record million cumulative sales by the end of this year.

“So, than phase the 10 th generation out it’s been reinvented as the value proposition.

What is is that Toyota SA has been to contain costs and ultimately the Corolla Quest at a low entry point due to four main i) the amortisation of the investment that was in the 10 th generation Corolla; ii) economies of i.e. the more you build, the the cost; iii) the commonisation of componentry between Corolla and new generation Corolla eg: engines and seats to name just and iv) intelligent editing of features.

As the Corolla Quest now also the same seats as the NG Corolla in a cost saving and, on the subject of seats, the rear has been simplified – it’s now as opposed to asymmetrically split. minor revisions that on price include the deletion of the console, reading map light and lamp in the sun visor. Lastly the and rear cloth door have been replaced a textured vinyl material. The that all these engineering were developed locally has been to the benefit of the consumer’s pocket.
