Where Are They Now? How 5 Iconic Cars Have Transformed


Quote:
Many of the cars we see on the road had humble beginnings and have changed quite a lot over the years. Let’s take a look at where these automotive nameplates came from and how they’ve grown.
The popular Toyota Corolla compact debuted in 1966 but hit North America in 1968. It was available as a coupe, sedan or wagon, and had a 90-inch wheelbase. Under the hood was a 1.1-liter four-cylinder engine that made 60 horsepower that was sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. It had a total length of 151.5 inches and was 58.7 inches wide.

Toyota should be ashamed of themselves. There is no good reason why the Corolla should still be at 1.8L. At the very least it should be a 2.0L like the Sentra or Civic to compete.

Talking RE Corolla

There's a very good reason for the long term use of the 1.8L engine. It is very reliable.Toyota is able to keep the price down on Corollas because the havent had to do a major mechanical redesign. We as long term customers have the benefit of immediate parts availability. Buy a Civic if you want the 2.0. Then watch your gaskets leak oil after 100K and your a/c compressor go out and learn how to replace your power window motors.

I don't understand why someone would buy a corolla and want a different engine. If you want a 2.0 liter car buy a different car. There are a lot of 2 liter out there.
