Toyota announces 2013 Corolla LE and S Special Editions

Article by Christian A., on March 26, 2013

By late April, Toyota dealerships will begin to offer two 2013 Corolla Special Editions. But what makes this news even better is that they will be affordable. These Corollas will be available with distinct standard features in two grade levels: LE and S. The LE Special Edition comes with equipment meant for buyers who look at comfort and convenient entertainment, such as a set of 16-inch alloy wheels, Display Audio with Navigation and Entune (comes with a three-year subscription), Power and heated Beige leather-trimmed seats, Special Edition floor mats and exterior badging, as well as with a one-of-a-kind Black Currant Metallic exterior color.

On the other hand, the sporty Corolla S Special Edition offers styling that caters to the young. It features 17-inch alloy wheels, Display Audio with Navigation and Entune, Sport fabric seats coordinated with a stand-out Hot Lava exterior color, and Special Edition floor mats and exterior badging.

For a two-month period starting in April, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC) will build a total of 7,500 Corolla special edition vehicles (2,250 LE and 5,250 S). Every Corolla Special Edition model will be available for MSRP $20,550 (excluding the $795 cost for Delivery, Processing, and Handling).

Safety, smooth drive, and state-of-the-art technology. The classic Toyota Corolla has been reinvented with a premium on the three items mentioned. The new Corolla comes with Vehicle Stability Control which is part of the Toyota Star Safety System. This means that the Corolla’s individual wheels braking force and engine output have the capability to adjust automatically should there be discrepancy between the direction where the vehicle is going and the direction where the car is being steered by the driver.

More safety features in the Corolla include door beltline reinforcements that have been strengthened to lessen side impacts. This the Corolla does by directing the collision impact to the underbody by distributing the impact load. The Corolla has also been engineered to ensure the entire body structure of the car, including the rear and front crumple zones, is able to absorb and distribute impact upon collision.

The new Toyota Corolla has been fitted with a stiff body structure. This ensures that driving and riding in a Toyota Corolla is always a smooth experience. This is because the body structure of the Corolla is engineered to be rigid, lightweight, and strong with its cross members, gussets, and high tensile-strength steel. The Corolla is easy to steer and navigate with its torsion beam rear suspension that utilizes coil-over-shock arrangement, which aids the driver to easily handle the Toyota Corolla. Another prominent element of the Corolla is the rigid, compact L-arm-type MacPherson strut with stabilizer bar that makes up the car front suspension.

Corolla has other outstanding features that showcase Toyota’s engineering expertise and impressive technology. It has a steering system that is aided by electric power. This steering system utilizes speed reducer, torque sensor incorporated into the steering column, and compact motor which adapts the assistance it provides with the RPM and vehicle speed of the Corolla’s engine.

This results to better driving dynamics whether the Corolla is on high speed or low speed. The electric power steering also contributes to the fuel efficiency of the Corolla as it lessens engine parasitic losses. The Corolla comes with 10.7-inch vented discs up front for the brakes, plus it does not use hydraulic oil which makes the car environment-friendly.
