    Default Corolla The Most Successful Car Ever

    The Toyota Corolla is a compact car produced by the Japanese automaker Toyota, which has become very popular throughout the world since the nameplate was first introduced in 1966. In 1997, the Corolla became the bestselling car in the world, with over 30 million sold as of 2007. Over the past 40 years, one Toyota Corolla car has been sold on average every 40 seconds.

    Corollas are currently manufactured in Japan, the United States (Fremont, California), the United Kingdom (Derbyshire), Canada (Cambridge, Ontario), Malaysia, China (Tianjin), Taiwan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa, Brazil, Turkey, Philippines, Thailand, Venezuela, and India.

    (this is enough for those who think corolla is a junk, infact its the most popular car throughout the world and has got the most number of "satisfied" customers than any other brand)
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    yet another award for corolla: The cheapest car to repair in minor accidents

    With so many first-time car-buyers picking a new car on cost alone, not many consider the repair costs involved with minor accidents. The most common type of accident is a 10km/h collision - usually with another car or object. In light of the statistics, the NRMA has conducted a study to find which cars are the cheapest to repair.

    The test put the top nine small-vehicles in Australia through a basic stimulated 10km/h crash, as expected, repair costs ranged from around $1,000 to more than $7,000.


    To get the good news out of the way, Toyota has won yet another title, with the Corolla small car (2nd best-selling car in Australia) crowned the cheapest small-car to repair, costing only $1019 or 4.4 per cent of its purchase price.

    The most expensive was the Honda Civic, costing an estimated $7,386 or 31.4 per cent of its purchase price. So how can one car cost $7000 while the other only costs $1000? Both are Japanese designed, both are mass produced and both are priced in the same range?

    According to NRMA Insurance Head of Research Robert McDonald, it’s all about bumper designs.

    “The test results show a vast difference in repair prices across the range of vehicles tested, as a poorly designed bumper can slide under other bumpers on impact, causing more damage to both vehicles,” Mr McDonald said.

    Despite Civic owners having to cough up the most, Suzuki Swift owners are also in for a shock with damage after a low speed crash costing $5547.15 or 34.7 per cent of the car’s purchase price.

    The NRMA is quick to point out that pedestrian-friendly bumpers are not the reason for the high repair costs as both the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic scored similar leg protection results in the EURO NCAP pedestrian safety program.

    “This proves that manufacturers can design vehicles that can perform well in both pedestrian safety and vehicle protection.”

    The table below shows the cars tested:
    Vehicle-----Repair Cost----Repair Cost as a % of the RRP price
    Toyota Corolla----$1019----4.4%
    Ford Focus----$2358----10.7%
    Holden Astra----$2627----10.9%
    Mazda 3----$2886----12.6%
    Toyota Yaris----$4016----22.1%
    Hyundai Getz----$3363----22.4%
    Mitsubishi Lancer ----$5467----23.5%
    Honda Civic ----$7386----31.0%
    Suzuki Swift ----$5547----34.7%

    ^ Toyota Yaris----$4016----22.1% ??

    I think these figures are purely because of premium on parts and labor.

    A Civic with a frontal collision doesn't cost 7,000$ to repair. I know I smashed mine quite some while back and the total cost was just about $1,000 with labor and parts.

    i want to share part of my knowledge on the topic with respectfull members of pakwheels , its not a war at all, i hope u people too will share ur valuable informations with me and all pakwheels members.thank :-)

    Introduction of HONDA: Honda is fifth largest automobile manufacturer in the world as well as the largest engine maker in the world producing more than 14 million internal combustion engines per year. Currently, Honda is the second largest manufacturer in Japan behind Toyota and ahead of Nissan. Taking Honda’s story as an archetype of the smaller manufacturer entering a new market already occupied by highly dominant competitors, the story of their market entry, and their subsequent huge success in the US and around the world, has been the subject of some academic controversy. Competing explanations have been advanced to explain Honda’s strategy and the reasons for their success.
    The most recent school of thought on Honda’s strategy was put forward by Gary Hamel and C. K. Prahalad in 1989. Creating the concept of core competencies with Honda as an example, they argued that Honda’s success was due to its focus on leadership in the technology of internal combustion engines. For example, the high power-to-weight ratio engines.

    HONDA in Aircrafts: Honda has also pioneered new technology in its HA-420 HondaJet that allows new levels of reduced drag, increased aerodynamics and fuel efficiency thus reducing operating costs.

    HONDA in Robotics: Honda's robot ASIMO (see below) as an R&D project brings together expertise to create a robot that walks, dances and navigates steps. ASIMO is the part of Honda's Research & Development robotics program. It is the eleventh in a line of successive builds starting in 1986 with Honda E0. It is the world's only humanoid robot able to ascend and descend stairs independently.[10]

    HONDA in Engines:
    Honda is fifth largest automobile manufacturer in the world as well as the largest engine maker in the world producing more than 14 million internal combustion engines per year. Currently, Honda is the second largest manufacturer in Japan behind Toyota and ahead of Nissan

    Awards taken by HONDA

    "Car of the year Japan"
    Total No. of Awards taken by HONDA Vehicles is 10
    Total No. of Awards taken by TOYOTA Vehicles is 7
    Although a relatively small manufacturer compared to the other Japanese automakers, Honda is the largest engine maker in the world. Honda has a number of firsts in many categories, including the first engine to meet the 1970 US Clean Air Act (1975 CVCC), the first luxury Japanese car (1987 Legend) and motorcycle (2006 Gold Wing bikes) equipped with an airbag, as well as the first mid-size pickup truck with independent rear suspension (2006 Ridgeline).
    Its first entrance into the pickup segment, the lightduty Ridgeline, won Truck of the Year from Motor Trend magazine in 2006 (also in 2006, the redesigned Civic won Car of the Year from the magazine, giving Honda a rare double win of Motor Trend honors).

    Awards taken by HONDA CIVIC
    "CAR OF THE YEAR JAPAN"
    1971-1972 HONDA Civic
    1983-1984 HONDA Civic
    1991-1992 HONDA Civic
    1995-1996 HONDA Civic
    2000-2001 HONDA Civic

    ENGINES:
    SOME RENOWNED FACTS:
    • Honda Civic 's engine is more smother and noise less (even the older version) as compared with Toyota corolla's engine.
    • Honda civics engine do have more HP (horse power) with same engine capacity (CC) in comparative with Toyota corolla's engine.
    For example : 1800 cc engine of Toyota Corolla 2008produces 126HP
    1800 cc engine of Honda Civic 2008 produces 140 HP
    1600 cc engines of Toyota Corolla 95 produces 105 HP
    1600 cc engines of Honda Civic 95 produces 125 HP.

    Therefore gives more top speed in comparative with Toyota corolla.
    Honda's engines have higher compression ratios than of Toyota's engines Hence having more HP.


    Why Corolla is known as ROLLA and Civic as Sporty/Domestic car

    About Engines: Honda's engines are renowned for their low emission, high performance with long lasting life cycle due to their wide sweeping experience in engine making. On the other hand Toyota avoids complications in their cars (and gives reason that Toyota uses thoroughly tested technologies) that provides ease to the technicians (hence neglecting performance issues), therefore technicians always prefer Toyota on Honda .Now a days Toyota is using worst quality of engine parts (Specially in their diesel engines i.e. Thailand made) being a bench mark in automobile industry therefore every 2nd corolla 2.0D (the latest model) ends up at 50,000 Km only. There is no doubt that Toyota corolla is the "best selling car in the world", not "best car of the world", Toyota Corolla never got CAR OF THE YEAR JAPAN " its home land award and don't forget it that two or three years ago Toyota has experienced quality problems and was reprimanded by the government in Japan for its recall practices. As Toyota wants to remain largest Automobile manufacturer in the world therefore Toyota want to improve "no. of vehicles produced per year" not "quality".

    General: Honda Civic is for citizens (as Civic means "of civil or related to civil") not for off-road riding like that of Toyota Corolla it’s the only reason why Pakistan Armed Forces uses Corolla not Civic. Honda always introduces most sporty and stunning design (in comparative to Toyota) that gives a touch of Class, rather than just copying the convention & making models with less complication as Toyota do.

    Honda vehicles usually appeal to the younger crowd since they can be easily customized. Also, after-market parts are readily available for Honda vehicles. Honda is known for producing sporty vehicles such as the
    Honda Integra Type R or the Honda S2000 (one of the worlds best handling sports car) hence the reason it appeals to the younger crowd. These vehicles have a tendency to put out a lot more horsepower compared to similar classed Toyota vehicles. For example, the 2002 Honda Integra Type R puts out 220HP (stock) whereas the 2002 Toyota Celica GTS puts out 190 HP.

    Other than that Toyota use to change its model after 7-8 years to reduce the research & designing cost (it clearly shows that Toyota is using "Sell as along as possible" strategy).

    Honda has a tremendous record of reliability with cars that have engines seemingly able to run forever. Many car drivers and car dealers see Honda as a car synonymous with reliability, both in city and highway driving.

    Honda Civic is recognized in the World and in Pakistan too among cars of its class for its enormous road grip, on the other hand every 2nd Toyota Corolla owner complains that "IT FLIPS" when ever they applied break at high speed.


    I think the Honda is a drivers car and the Toyota is a riders car

    @ Toyota VS Honda VS Suzuki VS any Car Manufacturer:

    1. As long as the owner likes it, chill! Next the resale issue is just the market here. If the people liked Brand X the resale of that will increase and in that way corolla has a resale. Imagine this and all your resales will go away

    2. Next for the nice peeps here:

    VVTi/VVTLi=Fuel Economy and Adequate Power (Torquey and Power is distributed over a wide band of RPM)

    VTEC/iVTEC=Raw Power and Performance (Power on a specific lift or RPM range which gives a racing type feeling on the higher rpm or VTEC range)

    VVTi=Economy
    VS
    VTEC=Power

    3. Leave the poor Toyota and Honda people, let the brands fight! All cars have their advantages and disadvantages. Lets just assume all cars are equal and let the owners think for themselves, OK ?

    4. Corolla outside Pakistan is successful for a few reasons like in the US they go by Lexus and Toyota and have a better MPG (mileage) and save costs on parts,labor,etc. Same for Honda as they go by Acura and Honda but have a slight edge on the power to economy (mileage) trade off. Next as there are better models and equipment outside for both the civic and corolla the sales are high as the competition is high. Here (in Pakistan) we are given what i refer to as the Testing Cars and are made a subject of the worse models possible. The recent (no offense to any brand/company) civic,city and corolla are the best examples. Check the international specs and features and you will be amazed at our results. We barely get 45% of the features and accessories here and i am not talking about GPS,etc. Basics like ABS,EBD,Steering Controls,Rims,etc all included with the other neccessities are now nearly availible in every car. Here we do not even get the latest engines. For the Corolla and City here we are getting old engines. Corolla now has Dual VVTi but not availible here and as for the City we are to wait and see but for now it should have a 1.3iVtec and 1.5iVtec variant on both the Auto(CVT or Normal Auto) or Manual Tranny. Cannot argue but the costs here for all cars are totally preposterous! I wish we could do something here and improve the service and quality levels here.

    5. Nissan and Mitsubishi and Suzuki follow the same trend as above but have their own advantages and disadvantages here in Pakistan.

    6. I wish we had a rule like Continental Models per Car. You can get Japanese,European or American Models. Or simply you can get 1 global model with any changes or accessory choices like you have in Sport cars like an RX8,RX7,Supra,Impreza,Evo Series (any model, not counting the FQ extensions or model variances like 6,7,8 and so on) or so. 1 model for the same purpose.

    7. So grow up people and leave this petty Toyota Corolla (VVTi) and Honda Civic (iVtec)...and see the broader and wider picture, there is more than these lil petty issues. A car is nothing without a skilled driver so if you wanna race and compare do it for fun and not as a fanatical fan!
