The Toyota Corolla is one of the most popular cars ever made, having been an instant success since its 1966 arrival in Japan. South Africa would get its first taste of the Corolla in 1975, signalling the selling and local production of what would become the most successful passenger in the country.
46 years later, the twelfth generation Corolla is on sale in South Africa, with the line-up consisting of several body shapes and models. One of these is a hybrid - the first in the Corolla's history.
Wheels24 contributor Tyrone Paulsen goes for a drive in the Corolla 1.8 Hybrid Xs and explains why it is probably the most important car in South Africa today.
