January 25, 2008 - Torrance, CA - Nearly 40 years after the Corolla was introduced to American drivers, an all-new Toyota Corolla, now in it's 10th generation will continue to offer the quality and value for which the brand has long been known.
New Toyota Corolla better than everOriginally launched in 1966, Corolla first arrived in America in 1968 to instant success. For nearly four decades, Corolla has been synonymous with Toyota quality, style and value, earning a distinction as one of the most trusted cars in America.
