Toyota Corolla Heritage Edition
FIFTY YEARS BY YOUR SIDE
October 2012 our trusted friend, the Toyota Corolla, has been with us for 51 years.
In 2011, Toyota South Africa celebrated this fantastic goal post by introducing the Corolla Heritage Edition on the Johannesburg International Motor Show.
In the maelstrom of new models and concept cars at the 2011 Johannesburg International Motor Show, one could be forgiven for not noticing the Heritage Edition of
one of South Africa’s most loved vehicle – the Corolla. In terms of sales, this locally-produced model is unashamedly the one of the sales leaders in this, the sedan
The Toyota Corolla is also proudly South African and to commemorate the historic 50-year milestone in this in South Africa, Toyota made a limited, 50-year Heritage Edition.
The Heritage Edition offer over their more ubiquitous stablemates is a significant increase in luxury and interior specifications, but without breaking the
bank. In fact, offering more for less is one of the major selling points of this model.
The evergreen Toyota Corolla in either 74 kW Optimal Drive 1.3 or 90 kW 1.6 guise, Heritage Edition niceties over and above the standard Corolla 1.3
and 1.6 Advanced include full leather upholstery, a two tone dashboard treatment, unique “Heritage Edition” badging and embroidered carpet sets. This rounds off
an already high specification level that includes Optitron instrumentation, a powerful sound system with USB, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, remote steering
wheel controls, electric windows, remote central locking and 16” alloy wheels.
Kerry Roodt, General Manager: Marketing Communications, said: “With the focus on style, technology and comfort, the Heritage Edition adds just that little bit
of extra gloss to our stalwart, locally-built models. The fact that they represent true value for money and are a fitting celebration of Toyota’s 50th year
in South Africa, is an added bonus.
