All-New Toyota Corolla Now Open for Booking
UMW Toyota Motor has announced that the much anticipated all-new Toyota Corolla will be launched in Malaysia soon and the sedan is now open for booking starting today.
The Corolla will be offered in 1.8G and 1.8E variants, with an estimated on-the-road price of RM136,888 and RM128,888, respectively.
Completely redesigned and re-engineered using the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, the sedan promises better performance, superior driving dynamics and comfort.
The all-new Toyota Corolla also gets the latest Toyota Safety Sense (TSS), an integrated safety systems that provide a safer driving experience and other sophisticated features.
The Corolla nameplate is considered as the best selling car in the world and is among the first cars to be assembled in Malaysia about 50 years ago.
The crash test results also demonstrate the designed-in strength of the Toyota New Global Architecture platforms on which the models are built, helping maintain the integrity of the cabin in the event of a collision. The robust structures, both for the British-built Corolla Hatchback and Touring Sports and the RAV4 SUV are reinforced in critical areas and make strategic use of high-strength steels to absorb and channel impact forces away from the cabin.
The second generation Toyota Safety Sense package includes a Pre-Collision System which can detect pedestrians in the vehicle’s path in both day and night-time driving, and can also recognise cyclists by day. The system scored maximum points in Euro NCAP’s testing at low, city speeds, with collisions being avoided at all test speeds. At highway speeds, collisions were avoided when approaching a slower vehicle; when coming up behind a stationary or slowing car, impacts were avoided in most cases, and mitigated in others.
The system’s pedestrian and cyclist recognition function also performed well, with collisions being avoided in all tests, in day and night conditions.
Other Toyota Safety Sense features include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with steering control, Automatic High Beam and Road Sign Assist.
These achievements demonstrate the success of Toyota’s commitment to car safety, which sits at the heart of its mission to make ever-better cars. Toyota ensures that the benefits of advanced safety technologies are not limited to high-end, high-specification models, but are made available across the board, maximising their potential to make driving safer
