2004 Toyota Corolla


Last year's redesign of the front-wheel-drive sedan was small but significant. Engine result increased by 5 horse power, as well as a brand-new, low-restriction catalytic converter went into the exhaust system. The automobile expanded a little. Its guiding was declared to be extra responsive as well as straight, and its braking extra precise. A higher hip factor was meant to reduce access right into the vehicle, and also the pole positions relocated further apart.

Other than one brand-new shade, nothing has changed for 2004. 3 versions are readily available: the value-priced CE, high end LE and also sporty S edition. Corollas are produced in California and Canada.

Driving Impacts

Regardless of its conservative styling as well as relatively high rates, the Corolla has long been just one of the most effective compacts on the marketplace. It delivers a gratifying mix of gas economy, refinement and also integrity. The Corolla conveys a sensation of strength and also self-confidence that belies its dimension.

The Corolla's efficiency could not mix lots of feelings, yet the 2004 sedan is adequate for normal driving. Acceleration is a trifle slow at startup, however the automatic-transmission version quickly grabs the pace. The engine is a little bit growly while speeding up, yet it quiets down well at freeway speeds.

Despite the fact that the Corolla maneuvers neatly around as well as takes contours acceptably, its handling isn't really rather as exact as that of some smaller automobiles. A smooth trip is still among the benefits. The pole positions have rather brief bottoms, but they fit as well as helpful. Rear seat legroom isn't fairly as appealing.
