LIVIN’ THE COROLLA VIDA

Limited Edition for Summer 2000

In the midst of British summertime, through the wind, drizzle and black clouds many of us are tempted by the lure of sunny Spain. Toyota is offering a Latin alternative to going barmy in the Balearics with a Limited Edition Corolla Vida to add a little bi’ of sizzle to your summer.

The Limited Edition Corolla Vida joins the new Corolla range for 2000 employing intelligent technologies for a better drive and an exciting value for money package and a reassuring purchase. Corolla Vida is available in three forms: 1.4 litre VVT-i engine in both three door hatchback and five door liftback body styles, and an automatic transmission is available with 1.6 litre VVT-i five door liftback.

DO YOU KNOW YOUR SOMBRERO FROM YOUR BOLERO?

There’s no need for muscles like Zorro with standard electric front windows and power steering. Air conditioning, also fitted as standard, keeps you cooler than a piña colada while you shimmy to salsa or mellow to la musica with the latest CD/RDS tuner system.

Clasp onto your castanets, Corolla Vida boasts all the usual Corolla features, such as:

High tech, low maintenance petrol engines in 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre with Toyota’s VVT-i system
Improved handling through stiffer body construction
Integrated multi-function dashboard display
Affordable turn-by-turn satellite navigation system optional
Engine immobiliser and central locking standard
Low insurance group and competitive replacement parts
Toyota Drive Plans: Peace of mind purchasing and servicing
On-the-road prices from £9,995
On sale through July, August and September
ECONOMY EXCELENTE!

The 1.4 litre VVT-i engine in Corolla Vida is one of the most advanced available in the segment offering best power in its class at 95bhp at 6,000rpm. Thanks to its superb torque characteristics and advanced VVT-i technology, fuel consumption is exceptional for an engine of this performance.

Low fuel consumption and excellent performance means you can cruise the streets of Seville, accelerate over Andalucia and still have enough juice to head off for Tapas with Tonto at 49.6mpg on the extra-urban fuel cycle!

SAFE & SECURE? SI, SI, SI SEÑOR!

Safety and security are not compromised on the Limited Edition Corolla Vida. Engine immobiliser and central locking come fitted as standard for the comfort and convenience of driver and passengers. Twin front airbags and five, three point seatbelts (the front ones with pre-tensioners and electronic force limiters) are also standard on Corolla Vida.

MORE PESETAS FOR YOUR POCKETS

Toyota is continuing to explode the myth that its replacement parts costs are expensive and will offer more pesetas for your pockets with competitive replacement parts pricing. Replacement of front and rear crash parts is significantly cheaper in the Corolla Vida compared to Peugeot 306 and Honda Civic.

And mucho más…maintenance costs are kept low as the advanced VVT-i engines in new Corolla (including Corolla Vida) do not require a first/one thousand mile service and full services are only required every 20,000 or two years.
