2004 Toyota Corolla S
Last year's redesign of the front-wheel-drive sedan was moderate yet significant. Engine outcome raised by 5 horse power, as well as a new, low-restriction catalytic converter went into the exhaust system. The car expanded a little. Its steering was claimed to be extra responsive and straight, as well as its stopping a lot more accurate. A greater hip point was meant to reduce access into the car, and the pole positions moved further apart.
Aside from one brand-new color, nothing has transformed for 2004. 3 versions are offered: the value-priced CE, upscale LE as well as stylish S version. Corollas are created in The golden state and Canada.
The designing modifications for 2003 were less than remarkable, despite the cars and truck's enhanced measurements. The Corolla rides a 102.4-inch wheelbase and also measures 178.3 inches long generally.
Unique design touches for the flashy S version include smoked fronts lights, fog lights, color-keyed bodyside moldings, front and also rear underbody looters, and also side rocker panels. The S car additionally includes special suspension adjusting. Alternatives for the S design consist of a back looter and aluminum-alloy wheels. All Corollas have 15-inch tires, yet those on the LE as well as S designs are somewhat wider.
5 individuals fit inside the Corolla, which features fabric furniture as well as a 60/40-split back seat. Freight quantity totals 13.6 cubic feet.
Basic tools in the CE model consists of cooling with a clean-air filter, power mirrors, a tilt guiding column, recurring wipers, a tachometer, an outdoors temperature scale as well as a CD stereo system. The LE adds power home windows as well as locks, color-keyed power mirrors, a woodlike facility control panel, remote keyless access and also vertical motorist's seat elevation modification. An one-of-a-kind cloth inside goes into the flashy S car, which showcases a leather-wrapped wheel as well as a shape sport speedometer.
Under the Hood
A 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with variable valve timing (VVT-i) creates 130 hp. Either a four-speed-automatic or five-speed-manual transmission can be installed.
Seat-mounted side-impact airbags and antilock brakes are optional. Daytime running lights are conventional. Dual-stage front air bags have an extra-low implementation level for chauffeurs that rest close to the guiding wheel.
In spite of its conservative styling as well as comparatively high prices, the Corolla has actually long been one of the most effective compacts on the market. It provides an enjoyable mix of fuel economic situation, refinement as well as reliability. The Corolla imparts a feeling of solidity as well as self-confidence that belies its size.
The Corolla's efficiency may not mix several feelings, however the 2004 car is adequate for average driving. Velocity is a trifle sluggish at start-up, yet the automatic-transmission model swiftly gets the pace. The engine is a little growly while accelerating, yet it quiets down well at highway rates.
Despite the fact that the Corolla maneuvers nicely around and 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 benefits. The front seats have somewhat short bases, however they are comfortable and helpful. Backseat legroom isn't rather as attractive.
