To mark the occasion for 50 years of production of the Corolla vehicle, Toyota announced the release of 50th Anniversary Special edition. This sleek sedan, available in three colors, exudes sophistication and elegance. Although remarkable changes were made inside and out, but still resembling the unique appearance of Corolla, unfortunately almost no changes were made under the hood, as it was expected.

Exterior of Toyota COROLLA
Toyota is changing the lineup for 2017, doing away with the sporty(ish) Corolla S trim in favor of SE and XSE grades that mirror the big-brother Camry’s trim levels. An XLE trim is also new, although the base L and mid-grade LE models remain the same.
Although information about equipment packages are not familiar, what is known is that a backup camera is newly standard on all models. The differences are also in darkened headlights, larger wheels, than previous model and a rear lip spoiler added.
The front grille is reshaped, headlights and taillights are assumed to be visual indicators of the car, nevertheless it didn’t give that much of a difference compared with last year’s model.
Standard on Corolla SE, XSE and 50th Anniversary Special Edition, the sport gauge cluster offers a sports car inspired illuminated speedometer and tachometer to help amplify your drive.
There is available sport button on the center console which enables sport mode, in which Engine Control Unit and simulated shift points are adjusted to give a sportier feel to your drive. Paddle shifters allow you to shift gears without moving hands of the steering wheel.
2017 Toyota COROLLA Engine
The Corolla still uses a coarse 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, mated to either a six-speed manual, a four-speed automatic (yes, those are still made), or a CVT automatic.Toyota makes no mention of any change to the car’s chassis.
Full ratings aren’t yet available, but the engine should still make 132 horsepower as standard or 140 hp when equipped with Toyota’s variable-intake valve-lift system, called Valvematic; EPA fuel-economy ratings that currently range from 27–30 mpg city and 36–42 mpg highway are likely to stay the same, as well.
