Safety Upgrade for Corolla Hatch
The active and passive safety of the Corolla hatchback range has been increased by Toyota. These safety upgrades are part of the mid-cycle facelift for the 1.8 liter dual VVT-I Corolla five-door hatch range. Corolla sells more than 35 million cars worldwide, which makes it the world’s largest selling car; it also sells over one million cars in Australia.
Due to the facelift, all the hatch models of Corolla will have Vehicle Stability Control, commonly referred to as VSC, and also Traction Control (TRC), which will now be standard equipment. All the models will also be having four SRS airbags as part of the standard equipment, and there will be a facelift addition of front-seat side SRS airbags as well.
The Corolla Hatchback Conquest and the Levin ZR also have seven SRS airbags as part of the standard equipment; this includes driver’s knee airbag and full-length curtain-shield airbags as well. The Corolla Ascent and Levin SR can be chosen with the optional safety pack, this includes seven airbags in total.
So what else is part of the Corolla Hatchback’s facelift? Well, there are new audio systems, new exterior colours, as well as interior trim and alloy wheel designs, new steering wheels, a new front mask, and also a new rear look.
