A Look Back at 50 Years of the Toyota Corolla
The Corolla has officially been around for 50 years with the first generation starting as a 1966 model. Moving throughout the Corolla's history, you will notice some common themes, including increases in power and size of the sedan for every generation. The first generation had a 4-speed transmission and water-cooled inline 4-cylinder, which was a huge advance for Toyota.
The third generation began in 1974 during the American fuel crisis. This helped the Corolla since it had an efficient design, but it still had to contend with increasing competition. For the fifth generation in 1983, Toyota really made a mark, selling roughly 3.3 million of these models worldwide. Most of these Corollas were built with front-wheel drive, and had a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine with 90 or 112 horsepower.
Although the seventh generation started in 1991, it did not make it to the US until 1993. Unfortunately, it was a bit boring, yet delivered the affordability and reliability that drivers craved. The 1995 Corolla was built in North America, and by the tenth generation, the Corolla had become fun and efficient, with extra charm and style arriving in 2014 for the eleventh generation.
