Corolla gets added Colour

17 December 2004

A cheaper, sportier-looking special-edition Toyota Corolla with extra equipment goes on sale in January 2005.

Corolla Colour Collection costs from £10,995

A cheaper, sportier-looking special-edition Toyota Corolla with extra equipment goes on sale in January 2005.

The Colour Collection edition of the small family car costs from £10,995 and is available as a three- or five-door hatchback, saloon or estate. Buyers can also choose from a 95bhp 1.4-litre petrol, 109bhp 1.6-litre petrol or 89bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine.

Although more than £1000 cheaper than the T3 specification level it is based on, the Colour Collection version has extra equipment, including silver metallic paint, alloy wheels, electric door mirrors, steering wheel-mounted stereo controls and a body kit.

It is also fitted with all the usual T3 equipment, so front, side and curtain airbags, electric front windows, CD player, remote central locking and air-conditioning are all included.

Whatcar.com editor James Harding said: ‘The Colour Collection offers good value-for-money as far as special editions go.

‘Don’t listen to dealers who tell you they can’t offer discounts on the cars. Their margins are the same as on standard Corollas, which means mean you should get at least another 6% off the price.’

The manufacturer is initially offering up to 2000 of the cars until March 2005 but could extend the offer if it proves successful.
