2004 Toyota Corolla Ce
Last year's redesign of the front-wheel-drive car was small however meaningful. Engine outcome increased by 5 horsepower, as well as a brand-new, low-restriction catalytic converter entered into the exhaust system. The vehicle grew a little. Its guiding was claimed to be much more responsive as well as linear, as well as its stopping extra specific. A greater hip point was meant to relieve access into the automobile, and the front seats relocated further apart.
Other than one new shade, absolutely nothing has actually altered for 2004. 3 variations are readily available: the value-priced CE, high end LE and also stylish S edition. Corollas are generated in California and also Canada.
The styling changes for 2003 were less than significant, despite the car's increased measurements. The Corolla trips a 102.4-inch wheelbase as well as measures 178.3 inches long in general.
Unique layout touches for the sporty S variation include smoked headlights, haze lights, color-keyed bodyside moldings, front as well as rear underbody spoilers, and side rocker panels. The S sedan likewise features unique suspension tuning. Choices for the S version include a back spoiler and also aluminum-alloy wheels. All Corollas have 15-inch tires, however those on the LE and S versions are somewhat bigger.
Five people fit inside the Corolla, which features cloth upholstery as well as a 60/40-split rear seat. Cargo volume amounts to 13.6 cubic feet.
Typical devices in the CE model includes cooling with a clean-air filter, power mirrors, a tilt guiding column, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, an outdoors temperature scale as well as a CD stereo. The LE includes power windows and locks, color-keyed power mirrors, a woodlike center instrument panel, remote keyless entrance as well as upright chauffeur's seat elevation adjustment. A distinct fabric interior enters into the flashy S sedan, which showcases a leather-wrapped wheel and 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 set up.
Safety and security
Seat-mounted side-impact air bags and anti-skid brakes are optional. Daytime running lights are conventional. Dual-stage front air bags have an extra-low implementation degree for chauffeurs who sit near to the steering wheel.
Despite its conservative designing and relatively high costs, the Corolla has actually long been just one of the most effective compacts on the market. It supplies a gratifying mix of fuel economy, refinement and also dependability. The Corolla conveys a sensation of strength as well as confidence that conceals its size.
The Corolla's performance might not stir lots of emotions, however the 2004 sedan is adequate for normal driving. Velocity is a trifle slow at startup, yet the automatic-transmission model swiftly grabs the speed. The engine is a little growly while accelerating, however it quiets down nicely at highway speeds.
Despite the fact that the Corolla maneuvers nicely in the area and takes curves acceptably, its handling isn't quite as accurate as that of some smaller sized automobiles. A smooth ride is still one of the advantages. The front seats have rather short bottoms, yet they are comfortable and supportive. Rear seat legroom isn't really fairly as enticing.
