An Icon of Dependability

Toyota New Global Architecture – TNGA will be the foundation for all Toyota’s future powertrain and vehicle development. It marks a revolution in the way Toyota designs, engineers and manufactures vehicles, streamlining the process by standardising the size and position of key components within standard new vehicle platforms.

TNGA – Foundations of a New Era

Rear double wishbones give the Corolla a major dynamic advantage over its rivals, making it one of the best handling cars in its class.

Toyota’s latest tally puts the cumulative production volume of all generations of the Corolla from Day 1 at over 45 million, a figure which, to put into context, is more than Malaysia’s entire car population.

The Corolla has evolved much over the years, the latest model being its twelfth iteration. Beginning with the original model and continued with each evolution, the Corolla has cemented its reputation as the car you can always depend on for all occasions.

Twelve generations in the making, more than half a century of hard work has fine-tuned the Toyota Corolla to become one of the most trusted nameplates in the car industry, and the most popular one too.



What is the most popular car in the world?

If you’ve answered Toyota Corolla, you are right in more ways than one. The Corolla name was introduced in 1966 and was the world’s best-selling car by 1974. Since 1997, the global car population has had more Toyota Corollas than any other model.

Locally, the KE10 also marked the start of a five-decade journey by Toyota assembling cars in Malaysia. At present, Toyota assembles cars locally in two different facilities, but the ASSB plant in Shah Alam where the first Malaysian-made Corolla rolled out in 1968 remains in operation today.

Toyota Corolla Over the Years

1st Generation (1966 – 1970)

FUN FACTFirst two generations of the Corolla were designed by Tetsuo Hasegawa. A man whose CV included other greats such as the Sports 800 and Celica.

3rd Generation (1974 – 1979)

World’s best-selling car with over 300,000 cars exported annually.

4th Generation (1979 – 1983)

Adopted four-link rear suspension for improved ride comfort.

5th Generation (1983 – 1987)

First FWD Corolla, although it co-existed with the legendary RWD AE86!

6th Generation (1987 – 1991)

The start of modernization for the Corolla.

7th Generation (1992 – 1997)

A car so well-built, it was nick-named a mini-Lexus.

8th Generation (1997 – 2001)

9th Generation (2001 – 2006)

The Altis suffix was added as the Corolla range moves further upmarket.

10th Generation (2006 – 2013)

11th Generation (2013 – 2018)

In its latest guise, the Corolla maintains its upmarket positioning as established by more recent iterations, whilst also staying true to the path forged by earlier predecessors that won consumers with innovation and kept them going with resolute dependability.

12th Generation (2018 – now)


Narrowed pillars and strategically placed outer mirrors significantly reduces blind spots.


Lower centre of gravity for less roll around corners, enhancing vehicle stability.


Although TNGA enables Toyota to produce a standardized vehicle architecture with many uniform components, consideration was given to let designers retain the freedom to produce cars that are visually distinctive and individual. It empowers Toyota designers to produce stylish vehicles with a lower stance and more appealing proportions as seen here in the Corolla.

What We Said

Is it comfortable as a daily driver, smooth and fuel efficient? Very much, yes! That has always been its preposition, but there is now one more thing – this car is fun to drive! That is across the board with every single Toyota nowadays. - Bobby

With this car, you dare to push it. You dare to full throttle. You’re not afraid. It gives you the confidence. You don’t feel like, you’re going to snap, and we threw it around corners quite a bit. - Beng

As I pushed the Corolla around these bends, I can really feel, as I planted my foot on the throttle that assurance of the rear end sitting down, giving you that push as you power around the corners. It is that sense of innate stability that you don’t get in a car with a rear torsion beam. - Kon
