The fourth-generation Sprinter was released simultaneously with the Corolla in March 1979. The wheelbase and the front/rear treads were enlarged by 30 mm and 25/50 mm, respectively. The new body design featured sharper contours and expanded cabin space. The body types consisted of a 4-door sedan, a 2-door hardtop, a coupé, and a liftback. The Sprinter changed its front and rear designs from those of the Corolla. The rear suspension continued to be of a rigid axle type, although the semi-elliptical leaf spring was replaced with 4-link coil springs with a lateral rod, thus significantly improving ride comfort and stability. All models came standard-equipped with front-wheel disc brakes (GT models came with 4-wheel disc brakes), and the 1300 models adopted a rack-and-pinion steering system. The available engines included 1,300 cc (4K-U), 1,500 cc (3A-U), and 1,600 cc DOHC (2TG-EU) units. The 1,800 cc engine that joined the lineup in August 1979 was discontinued two years later, and was revived again in February 1982.
The meaning is the same as in English.
