New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 2, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas 8 fl HeraldZeitung g Friday February Wheels Toyota Corolla The quality of this economical family car comes shining through David Sullens Toyotas Corolla which for 1996 has been given redesigned front and rear fascia three new colbrs new wheel covers revised interior trim and a short ened manual shift lever stroke is second only to the Camry in sales and is the second best sell ing car in the world behind the Volkswagen Beetle My overall and over whelming impression of the Corolla as it has been with any Toyota product I can recall eval uating was one of quality And that is not just my opinion More than threequarters of all Corollas sold in North America are built at the New United Motor Manufacturing plant in Fremont or at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada facility in Ontario Canada And those plants recently received the Power and Associates Gold Plant and Bronze Plant awards The Gold Plant award signifies that that plant the fewest defects per vehicle produced The Corollas front end revision involves a colorkeyed grille flanked by small er headlights The Toyota emblem is located at top center of the grille and is faired into the bodywork At the rear Corolla DX models have been a full wraparound taillight assembly a center reflector panel while Standard models are fitted with gray center class ing Both models display the Corolla logo in the center Available for the first time on any Toyota product is an integrated child safety seat restraint system Located behind the passengers seat the center section of the rigTit rear seat folds forward to reveal a fourpoint harness with an easy to use latch Driverand passengerside airbags are stan Toyota Corolla DX dard as are threepoint seatbelts at all outboard seating positions and childprotector door locks on rear doors when activated these prevent the doors being opened from the Fourwheel antilock brakes are available on all

highway You can opt for either a threespeed auto matic transmission or a fivespeed manual with the Standard grade Corolla The DX is available with the five speed or with a fourspeed elec tronically controlled automatic The manual Corolla transmission has been revised for 96 for a better feel and more posi tive gear engagement It features reduced snifter travel The Corollas suspension is fully independent with MacPherson struts at all four corners All models have a rear stabilizer bar and the DX also has a stabilizer bar at the front Suspension components are lighter for 96 which reduces unsprung weight and improves vehicle ride comfort and control Brakes on all Corolla models are ventilated discs at the front and drums at the rear The Standard grade Corolla has halogen headlights
