Used Car — Toyota Corona

Our last candidate for the elections, the name, tries to win the general wallets as well as the seat. Myk invites you to discover a rather name.

1993-1999 Toyota


If the 90s premium sedans had an back in year 1995 was the time Fidel Ramos was the Accord would definitely be Macapagal-Arroyo (she used a since this topped the as well as the sales leader for category. The Mitsubishi Galant and Corona would be Francisco and Gregorio Honasan II in the sales due to the fact while they well, they are not as that as the sales leader. The Mazda 626 and Altima fared outside the top 12 these two are not popular among of this category. Worse, the can be compared with Rosemarie who placed 19 out of 20 candidates.

The T190 Corona, as what I am in this review, was made in March 1992 in most markets under the Corona and names. Sold in sedan, station wagon, hardtop and even a van version. Interestingly this was the last that outside Japan can buy and drive a new Corona, as the T210 model was exclusive for the Japanese market. pulled the plug for international in 1998.

Filipinos had a love with Coronas (not the Chief Justice nor the imported from Mexico), but with a badge. You get the image but with the costs of a Corolla, that was the of the Corona locally. The T190 was available in 1993 and did battle the Accord and Galant. Time had in which the Camry replaced vehicle in 1998, although you can buy one 1999, which are basically units. From launch, the trim available is the EX Saloon but one after the 1995 revision, the model was introduced with bumpers and red/amber tail The Exsior spawned a second the LE which had leather upholstery.

Value and Costs

This is a victim of low residuals that premium sedans having an displacement of two liters. Not also to be by the discontinued nameplate, T190 can be acquired in the range of P120,000-P180,000. In range, direct rivals of the period can be had for the same sum. way, careful research is the key the Corona targets those who things smooth.

Common problems that hit the involves the leak from the and rack, map sensor, water in the trunk, power antenna, and the bushing. But despite these you can buy parts easily and they are Fuel economy is no match to a 1.6 GLi of a same time.

Exterior and

European inspired is the term to the outside of the Corona, but the car remains at heart. 1993 to early models have their plates mounted in the rear as opposed to the facelift’s integrated to the 1995 saw its bumpers, both and back, sporting a black and a three piece spoiler was standard. Exsior models (and can be distinguished by their) bumpers, and the mix of red and amber tail It is understated luxury here, but the European touch.

Inside, it is your typical interior. Controls are legible and within reasonable distance the driver. Interestingly enough, controls are more of the rotator (which is common among nowadays) than the slide which are vogue during time. Black finish was and faux wood is only on the Exsior LE. Most models fabric seats but the Exsior LE leather seating, and other items include an air purifier and the mentioned wood trim. and ABS Brakes come standard 1995 and later models. room is definitely excellent, but visibility is somewhat poor no to the high cowl, high layout, and low seating position.

There is only one engine for PHDM Coronas back It is a 3S-FE 1,998cc which 126hp at 5,600rpm and 177Nm at A strength typical for Toyotas are power in the low to mid revs, but go beyond it loses stream. But then, if you the love for modification, slapping in a or 3S-GTE is a cake and you’ll be like the devil in no time.

Driving Impressions

Let me remind you one the Corona is not a treat for the driver due to the positioned very low, and a steering. It does not drive a barge, but since it is a smooth your passengers would it more, thanks to the large in the rear.


The Corona is one premium sedan from the buy one if you want comfort for less But if economy is a priority, a 1.6 vehicle the same period is a better Besides, both of them the same prices and there is the of choice for the buyer. Vote (or I say buy) wisely.
