addition of the subcompact Yaris to the lineup, the Corolla becomesToyota’s second least-expensive passenger car.
A major redesign is expected for 2008, however, so the changes to the ’07
Corolla are minimal. The XRS model has been discontinued and the rated output of
the Corolla’s standard 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine has been downgraded
slightly, from 130 horsepower previously to 126 horsepower for 2007. The loss
reflects changes in the way engine power is measured and reported. The ’07
engine is essentially a carryover. Front-seat side and curtain airbags and
anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) are available as
options for all model grades.
