The previous-generation Toyota Corolla Quest was a great car, but it has nothing on the new model which has improved tremendously, offering more space, more luxury and comfort. Born in Japan in 1966, the Toyota Corolla started a 55-year-old successful trajectory in the motor industry after completing 12 generations.1 Discover why comprehensive car insurance should be included when South African motorists buy a new Toyota Corolla Quest.
Compared to the previous 11th generation, the lights, grille, and bumper have all been improved to give the compact sedan that striking, sporty look.
The car’s ride is pleasant and smooth over any tar surface. The steering and applying brakes are outstanding. Changing gears are smooth except for the stiff change from second to third gear.1 In the review, the car's low-positioned nose tended to scrape the tar surface when negotiating any hump on the road, which could pose a problem on South African roads.
The car is equipped with a 1.8litre, 4-cylinder, naturally aspirated engine with a maximum power output of 103 kW and 173Nm of torque. Acceleration is excellent at between 1000 – 3000 rpm when most of the torque is accessible. The silent drive and the delightful interior comfort make this car very attractive to buyers. The 6th gear and cruise control make any long-distance driving a great joy.
The black leather upholstery and the integrated touch-screen information system adds class to this car. Bluetooth telephony and hands-free practicality enhance entertainment aspects. The steering wheel controls are used for receiving and completing phone calls and altering the music volume.
This exceptional car is equipped with five airbags, electronic stability control, and ABS with EBD. A warning light alerts the driver if any rear passengers have not belted up. Reversing is made easy via a reverse-view camera which sadly does not operate satisfactorily under bright conditions.
