No other car brand has achieved this feat—except maybe for Toyota Innova Philippines, which is catching up in terms of prestige and sales.
The Corolla’s face and specs may have changed over time, but Toyota’s commitment to their customers remains solid and grounded on one goal—to give the best quality services, once again proving the company’s track record of quality and dedication.

Style and Elegance
As part of its technological evolution, the Toyota Corolla’s interior and exterior have improved, giving the customers a better and sleeker design. One look at the Corolla and you will automatically notice that it exudes elegance because of its unique design, and you can even choose colors that will match your personality. It has additional features such as LED low-beam headlights with halogen high beams, LED daytime running lights, Integrated fog lights, and color-keyed parts.

The Corolla wouldn’t have thrived for many years if not for the remarkable safety standards that Toyota sets. Safety has become the staple element in the production of this type of car. In its present model, safety is further emphasized through eight standard airbags; Star Safety System that keeps an eye out for your braking and other actions that your car performs; the Tire Pressure Monitor System that keeps track of your tire’s condition; the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which help you take care of little ones while you’re on the road; and the Whiplash-Injury-Lessening seats that literally lessens the impact on the front seats should there be an accident. With these advanced features, 100% safety is ensured and you will be able to enjoy your trip without worrying about anything.
The newest Toyota Corolla is equipped with an estimated 42 highway mpg and 30 city mpg as well as Eco-driving Mode to monitor fuel efficiency so you can save gas. Another is the CVTi-S Valvematic Technology which gives you more control for a smoother road trip.
State-of-the-Art And Smart

Gone are the days when parking in a tight spot is an ordeal. With the installed backup camera, you can get a good view of your rear while you’re on reverse. It also has voice recognition to make it easier for you to fulfill tasks, including call-making.
The Toyota Corolla managed to penetrate the automotive industry by taking its time in improving every bit and detail of it over the years.
