2004 Toyota Corolla Le
Last year's redesign of the front-wheel-drive car was moderate however significant. Engine output increased by 5 horsepower, as well as a new, low-restriction catalytic converter went into the exhaust system. The auto grew a little. Its guiding was declared to be more responsive and straight, as well as its braking a lot more specific. A higher hip point was intended to relieve entrance right into the lorry, as well as the pole positions relocated further apart.
Aside from one brand-new shade, absolutely nothing has changed for 2004. 3 versions are readily available: the value-priced CE, high end LE as well as stylish S edition. Corollas are produced in California and also Canada.
The designing adjustments for 2003 were less than dramatic, regardless of the cars and truck's raised dimensions. The Corolla rides a 102.4-inch wheelbase and also procedures 178.3 inches long overall.
Unique style touches for the flashy S version consist of smoked headlights, haze lamps, color-keyed bodyside moldings, front and also rear underbody looters, and side rocker panels. The S sedan also features unique suspension tuning. Alternatives for the S design include a rear looter and aluminum-alloy wheels. All Corollas have 15-inch tires, but those on the LE and also S versions are slightly larger.
5 people fit inside the Corolla, which showcases cloth upholstery and a 60/40-split back seat. Cargo volume totals 13.6 cubic feet.
Typical devices in the CE model includes a/c with a clean-air filter, power mirrors, a tilt guiding column, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, an outside temperature gauge and a CD stereo. The LE includes power home windows and locks, color-keyed power mirrors, a woodlike center control panel, remote keyless entrance as well as upright driver's seat height modification. A distinct fabric interior enters into the sporty S sedan, which showcases a leather-wrapped wheel and also a silhouette sport speedometer.
Under the Hood
A 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with variable shutoff timing (VVT-i) generates 130 hp. Either a four-speed-automatic or five-speed-manual transmission can be mounted.
Seat-mounted side-impact air bags as well as antilock brakes are optional. Daytime running lights are standard. Dual-stage front air bags have an extra-low deployment level for chauffeurs that sit near to the guiding wheel.
In spite of its traditional designing as well as comparatively high costs, the Corolla has long been among the best compacts on the market. It delivers an enjoyable blend of fuel economic climate, refinement and reliability. The Corolla imparts a feeling of strength as well as confidence that belies its size.
The Corolla's performance may not mix several feelings, but the 2004 car is adequate for ordinary driving. Velocity is a trifle slow at start-up, but the automatic-transmission design rapidly picks up the pace. The engine is a little bit growly while increasing, but it quiets down well at freeway speeds.
Despite the fact that the Corolla maneuvers nicely in town and also takes contours acceptably, its handling isn't really quite as precise as that of some smaller sized cars and trucks. A smooth flight is still among the advantages. The pole positions have somewhat short bases, however they fit and also supportive. Backseat legroom isn't really rather as enticing.
