"I believe this new model clearly breathes the Corolla DNA that has been inherited over a period of 47 years."
That DNA sets forth the mission of the Corolla to constantly provide concepts and technologies that lead the times and to create the world’s best-selling car, and that DNA has now been inherited for a new era. Each generation of the Corolla has pursued the “customer satisfaction” and “customer delight” around the world, and through those efforts the DNA of the Corolla has constantly evolved. I am confident that we have developed an 11th generation Corolla that can be driven with WAKUDOKI, peace-of-mind, and pride.
