Dorikaze Corolla History Title

4th Generation Corollas
KE70, AE70, CE70, TE71, TE72, AE72, TE73, TE74, TE75

The 7# range has a completely new sharp edged look. Several new features such as rack and pinion steering are added along with new engine choices (1800cc 3T, 1500cc 3A).

The Corolla and Sprinter names were carried over from the previous model. The Levin name was now reserved for the coupe with 2T-G engine but the 2T-G engine was also available in the GT version of the sedan, hardtop and liftback.

Design work was started in 1974 by Fumio Agetsuma. The goals he told his team were:

  • Quiet cars will have a definite edge. Conservation of both resources and fuel will be very important. Economy and value will also carry considerable weight.
  • Our new Corolla must be as aerodynamically perfect as the parameters allow. It must be comfortable, with enough interior room to move about in. It will need all the modern features that future customers will want as well.
  • Corolla must change. But we should never destroy the popular base upon which Corolla sales are built. Our new car must reflect the wishes of the consumer, the ordinary people who drive Corollas.
  • There should be no generation gap with Corolla. It should appeal to young and old alike. Corolla must also transcend national boundaries. It muts perform as well in sub-zero temperatures as it does in the tropics or in the heat of the deserts of the world. Above all, Corolla must be a car that pleases.
  • Corolla has an illustrious tradition. Now, let us build our new Corolla on that tradition, the kind of new Corolla we know the drivers of the world will expect.
