Toyota is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its best-selling model Corolla the only way a car maker knows how: with a special edition. Mind you, Toyota’s definition of the word ‘Special’ seems to be different than anyone else’s, because there isn’t much about the 2017 Toyota Corolla 50th Anniversary one would consider special.
But hey, at the end of the day the car we’re talking here is a Corolla, a breed of family sedans deliberately designed not to be exciting. That is their biggest selling point, which is why for the 2017 modelyear the biggest styling changes include a new front grille and LED headlamps. There is more inside the cabin, what with the Almond, Ash/Dark Gray or Black/Brown color schemes, Softex-trimmed sport seats with Vivid Blue, Orange Zest, and Black premium fabric inserts, redesigned climate control panel and circular air vents. Which one you end up with depends on which trim level you choose.
The 2017 Toyota Corolla 50th Anniversary Edition is based on the SE model and comes with moonroof, Smart Key and Entune Audio Plus. That is about it in terms of extras, but then again the base Corolla is pretty well-equipped, with the list including: Integrated backup camera, Monochrome 3.5-inch TFT Multi-Information Display, USB and iPod connectivity, Integrated backup camera with projected path guidelines, Bi-LED headlamps, Bluetooth for hands-free phone control, phone book access and audio streaming, 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, Tilt and telescoping steering column, Power windows and door locks, Overhead console with map light, and Entune Audio with 6.1-inch display screen and six speakers.2017 Toyota Corolla 50th Anniversary Edition,
