Introduction

Few cars can boast of having  sold nearly 40 million examples over 10 generations which puts the Corolla in a rather esteemed crowd. So what is it about the Corolla that makes it such a darling in every market it goes to?

When it comes to bang for buck, few are in equal standing with the Corolla. It offers decent mileage from its humble four cylinder 1.6-litre powerplant. Couple that with decent build quality and equipment level and it all starts to make sense. But most of all, the bombproof reliability is the main selling point of the Toyota.
