The exclusive UAE distributor for Toyota vehicles, Al-Futtaim Motors, has launched the new 2018 Toyota Corolla in the UAE with prices starting from AED67,500.

Available with a choice of 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines, the 2018 Corolla range offers five trim options in total including a top-spec 2.0-litre Corolla Limited for AED78,900.

All 2018 Corolla models come with safety features such as stability control, a tyre pressure warning system, rear fog lamps, and at the very least dual front airbags.

The base Corolla SE 1.6-litre features a four-speaker auto system and basics such as Bluetooth, a multifunctional steering wheel, cruise control and rear parking sensors. As you go up through the line-up Toyota adds kit like 16-inch wheels, leather-trimmed steering wheel, six speakers, push-button start, and on the flagship Limited, LED headlights, a sunroof, and automatic air conditioning.

Compared to the current Corolla, the 2018 model gains interior updates and improved efficiency thanks in part to a new Multi Drive 7S transmission. Don’t let that corporate moniker fool you because it’s not a seven-speed gearbox — in layman’s terms, it’s really just a CVT…

“For more than fifty years, the Corolla has been the workhorse that many Emiratis have depended on for their daily commutes around the UAE,” says Al-Futtaim Motors’ managing director Saud Abbasi. “For 2018, customers can expect to get even more value for their money with more engine choices, more grades and a host of standard features…”

Japanese giant Toyota may be vying for the world’s top carmakers’ spot these days (annual production is over 10 million cars) but back in the Sixties things started off small — the Corolla entered the market in 1966 as one of the first global Japanese cars ever, and today Toyota manufactures 1.5 million of the things each year. Around the world, 16 different Toyota plants produce Corollas, reaching customers in 150 different markets.

In the UAE, as aforementioned the 2018 Corolla starts from AED67,500, moving to AED69,900 for the 1.6-litre Corolla SE+, AED73,900 for the 1.6-litre Corolla Limited, AED71,500 for the 2.0-litre Corolla SE, AED74,900 for the 2.0-litre Corolla SE+, and finally AED78,900 for the 2.0-litre Corolla Limited.

    What’s new in technology and interior or exterior design. Toyota’s goal can not only be to promote the price.
