The Corolla Wagon sports great looks both inside and out.
A distinctive front grille split between chrome accents above and piano black below encases halogen headlights; while the rear spoiler adds to the appeal of this trusted model.
The Corolla Wagon is packed with functionality, making it a fantastic family car and an equally fantastic work tool.
Bluetooth handsfree phone and audio streaming capability are standard, as are the USB input with specialised iPod control and auxiliary jacks.
Meanwhile, both the centre console instruments for heating and cooling and the Multi-Information Display (MID) showing trip information like fuel consumption and cruising range keeps things nice and simple for the driver.
The Corolla Wagon is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine and offers improved fuel efficiency, meaning practicality is also economical.
It delivers combined fuel economy of 5.7-litres/100km for the 5-speed manual model and 4.3-litres/100km combined fuel economy for the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) model. The CVT model also benefits from ECO technology, including fuel saving Stop & Start functionality.
The Corolla Wagon gives you the choice of two transmissions.
Toyota’s proven five-speed manual transmission provides optimum control of ratios, while the smooth seven-speed Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) helps ensure best possible fuel economy and comes with integrated Start and Stop functionality.
Under this system, when the Corolla Wagon comes to a halt at an intersection, the engine automatically stops in order to help save fuel and mitigate exhaust emissions. Once the brake is released the engine seamlessly starts again, allowing the driver to continue on their journey.
Occupants are protected by driver, front passenger, side and curtain shield airbags. 2 ISOFIX attachment points for child safety seats are located in the back seat.
Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) front seating is also provided and all five seating positions have 3-point seat belts fitted with ELR function. The Corolla Wagon also comes with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC).
For an interior to be practical, it also has to be comfortable and durable. Supportive seats featuring black fabric are complimented by premium leather grain-style instrument panel trim.
The spacious cabin includes large upper and lower twin glove boxes, bottle holders in all doors and a centre console with cup holders.
A retractable and removable tonneau cover can keep items out of sight in the rear, or if preferred they can be stored in the storage box under the luggage area floor.
With more interior room to go around, the Corolla Wagon provides rear passengers with ample leg room, while cargo capacity still equates to 407-litres, extending to 872-litres once the rear seats are folded down. A quick flick using the one-touch remote release will fold down the 60:40 split rear seating flat, to allow for additional loads.
The large, easy-to-use dials of the air conditioning system within the Corolla wagon’s centre console allow for quick adjustments while you’re on the move.
No fiddly digital menus here, just twist the robust dials to find your heating or cooling preference.
With more interior room on offer, there’s plenty of space for passengers and cargo alike.
The Corolla Wagon offers excellent head, shoulder and leg room in the rear. If you have large loads to shift, folding the entire back seat down gives you 872-litres of space to fill.
Thanks to 60:40 split rear folding seats, you can load long or awkwardly shaped items. With the help of a clever one-touch fold down mechanism, you can stow and go quickly and easily.
