More disappointing is the carryover base engine that's standard on L, LE, and XLE models. This 1.8-liter inline-four is an ancient powertrain that has been featured in the past several generations of Corolla with minimal updates. Its 139 horsepower is on the low end of the compact segment, and the Corolla LE we drove with this engine felt less than enthusiastic getting up to speed. Perhaps a greater deterrent is the fact that the more desirable and powerful 2.0-liter engine actually gets better EPA fuel-economy ratings than the base engine.
April 1974 brought rounder, bigger and heavier Corollas and Sprinters. The range was rounded out with the addition of a two-door liftback. The Corollas were given E30 codes while the Sprinters were given E40 codes. A face-lift in March 1976 saw most Corolla E30 models replaced by equivalent E50 models and most Sprinter E40 models were replaced by equivalent E60 models. The E30 Corolla was fitted with retracting front seat belts.
A hybrid model is a new addition to the Corolla lineup and strikes a good compromise between the two gas engines. Quiet, smooth, and unobtrusive, the hybrid powertrain uses a 121-hp Atkinson-cycle 1.8-liter inline-four and a pair of electric motors, with the drive motor generating 71 horsepower. It's a familiar Toyota setup good for an impressive 52 mpg combined, nearly 20 mpg more than the already thrifty gas Corollas and right on top of its closest rival, the Honda Insight (which is, essentially, a Civic hybrid in all but name). There's also little downside to choosing the Corolla hybrid, other than its $3000 price premium; due to the placement of the battery pack under the rear seats, it has the same amount of trunk space as the conventionally powered model, and the rear seatbacks even fold flat, creating a pass-through from the trunk to the interior for longer cargo.
Toyota released hybrid versions of the Corolla Axio sedan and Corolla Fielder station wagon for the Japanese market in August 2013. Both cars are equipped with a 1.5-liter hybrid system similar to the one used in the Toyota Prius c, with a fuel efficiency of 3.03 L/100 km (93.2 mpg‑imp; 77.6 mpg‑US) under the JC08 test cycle. Toyota's monthly sales target for Japan is 1,000 units of the Corolla Axio hybrid and 1,500 units of the Corolla Fielder hybrid.
The brand name Toyota was derived from the founder’s last name Toyoda, as Toyota was seen to be more pleasing to the ear and recognizable. Marketing efforts have strategically been directed at the high reliability factor and ease of ownership of Toyota vehicles. The operations management philosophy is strategically aligned with Toyota’s message of quality, as the Toyota Production System (TPS) is very prominent in lean manufacturing. The automaker is also a leader in lean manufacturing, with the invention of concepts such as "Kaizen", the need for improvement, and Just in Time (JIT) manufacturing to reduce waste. The company has constantly been rated top quality by J.D Power, and has also received the Top Safety Pick Awards by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for the Yaris Hatchback, Corolla, Camry, Prius, Prius V, Venza, Avalon, Sienna, Highlander, and Tundra.
