Toyota Corolla (9th gen - E120) 2000-2008

Toyota Corolla Compressor: New Performance Flagship for Corolla Range

Tougher emissions regulations signal the end of the road for production of Toyota’s rapid Corolla T Sport model, but its hot hatch reputation is being kept alight with the introduction of a Corolla that’s faster, more powerful and has better handling and more street presence than ever before.

Available only in strictly limited numbers, the Corolla Compressor uses the same 1,794 cc VVTL-i four-cylinder engine as the T Sport, but with a supercharger added to boost output from 189 to 215 bhp and technical adjustments to meet Euro IV emissions standards. That helps knock one-and-a-half seconds off the car’s 0-62 mph acceleration time, down to 6.9 seconds, and adds 3 mph to the top speed, now 143 mph.

Thanks to extra torque at lower engine speeds – a maximum 159 lb-ft at 4,000 rpm – the Corolla Compressor delivers supremely flexible performance: acceleration from 50 to 75 mph in fifth gear is accomplished in 8.5 seconds, while the shift from 37 to 62 mph in fourth takes only 6.1 seconds.

To cope with the power hike, the Corolla Compressor is fettled with 15mm lowered sports suspension and uprated springs for extra handling performance. It looks the part, too, riding on 17-inch alloy wheels with 215/45 tires and dressed with a roof spoiler, deep rear air dam and sports exhaust with twin tailpipes.

Only 250 right-hand drive Corolla Compressor models are being made available in the UK, so potential owners will have to move almost as quickly as the car they desire in order to secure one. The model goes on sale in the UK on 1 November 2006, priced on-the-road at 19,995. It's not immediatelly clear if Corolla Compressor will be available in North America.

Look at picture 5. That exhaust is a fake...there's no silencer on it.

Lol, it's as bad as the chavs that stick (and I've seen this) 6 exhausts on the back of a Corsa 1.2, except Toyota are doing it from the factory! I wouldn't have expected this from Toyota though, I live near (about 12 miles from) the plant where the Avensis and Corolla are made. During a Business project we visited the factory and according to everyone at Toyota, they're aiming for the VW Golf with the Corolla (they're trying to move upmarket).

How are they hoping to convey an upmarket image with fake exhausts?

For that money I'd be buying an Impreza WRX or an Astra VXR, then wiping the floor with the guys driving this.

Yeah it's way too expensive, and doesn't have character at all

Exactly, and which sad b*stard buys a hot hatch in that dull colour anyway? Come to think of it, who buys grey cars? Driving past my local BMW dealership this week I've seen far too many battleship grey cars, there are millions of colours out there - why make cars that reflect the dull english weather and skies?

At least silver and black look classy!

They may be aiming for the Golf but they're hitting the Civic Si...

And the grey metallics do look better with the sun shining on them. Definitely not meant for where the sun don't shine...

Yeah, it was just a load of marketing spiel but it's gonna bite them on the ass if they do what I described above.
