Toyota Corolla 2018

In 1966, the Toyota Corolla first entered the auto market as a subcompact car. In 1991, the Japanese automaker opted to transform it into a compact vehicle instead. A few years after its transformation, it became one of the best-selling cars of all time. With its over 50-year run, its lineup made up of seven versions is now a major competitor to the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, Mitsubishi Lancer and Mazda 3 Sedan.

Exterior

Toyota Corolla 2018 possesses a sloped roof that extends to its hood, a smoother image from its angular forerunners. With dimensions of 1.46 meters in height, 4.62 meters in length, and 1.77 meters in width, this Japanese sedan is coated in a slick finish. Completing its look are its body-colored mirrors and bumpers. It is a sight worth looking at in major roads in Qatar.
