One more tiny reason; When you say corolla, an illiterate image pops in mind. As autophile mentioned, its the only car which suits the villagers because of a number of reasons - better ground clearance, better parts availability etc etc.
I've noticed 7 out of 10 corolla's driven either by illiterate drivers, or by (I hate to use the word), some paindu. (No offense to drivers, or illiterate people, or paindus, but come on, admit it....no one wants be taken as illiterate or paindu)
I've also noticed that 8 out of 10 cars with high beams are corollas.
I've also noticed that 8 out of 10 ''ve gujra ve'' and ''pak gayyiyan ambiyan'' DVDs being played in Corollas.
P.S. These are just my personal opinions. Please don't get offended.
