The Toyota Corolla is celebrating 50 years of affordability and reliability. And to celebrate this feat, Toyota has created the Corolla 50th anniversary edition! Let’s see why the Corolla solidified its place in the car market in Charlotte and the world. Then we’ll break down the awesome features that the 50th anniversary edition Corolla offers and if you can get your hands on a Corolla right here in Charlotte.
”The Toyota Corolla is a five-passenger vehicle from Japan that is positioned as the “most accessible car” in the market. In the development of the Corolla, Toyota’s engineers have spent years bringing together the best of the company’s technologies to offer to the public.” This was part of the press release that Toyota sent out over 50 years ago on Oct. 20, 1966.
Who would have thought that the “most accessible car” back in 1966 would still be one of the most affordable cars today? And with its great price aside, the Toyota Corolla has proven itself to be one of the most reliable and tough cars on the market. Its reputation of having low maintenance, few breakdowns and being a great family car could be some of the reasons why the Toyota Corolla has become the best-selling car in history! And that’s saying something since many Corollas are passed down through families and are still on the road with over 200,000 miles on them throughout Charlotte and the world.
What the Toyota Corolla 50th anniversary offers
The 50th anniversary special edition is based on the new and exciting 2017 Corolla. But the special 50th edition Corolla has the Black Cherry Pearl color option which is exclusive to this edition! Other than the exclusive Black Cherry Pearl color option, the 2017 Corolla Special Edition offers:
- All-new 17″ alloy wheels with machined spokes and dark-grey inserts for a one-of-a-kind look
- Three bombastic paint colors – Black Cherry Pearl, Blizzard Pearl, and Classic Silver Metallic
- Specially tailored 50th anniversary floor mats with special edition badging
- Black cherry accents throughout the entire black SofTex interior, lending a bright and eye-catching contrast – you’ll find it on the seats, the dash, the doors, the steering wheel, and the gear shifter
- Special badging for the exterior – let everyone know you’ve got a unique ride on your hands with these 50th anniversary edition emblems
Now only 8,000 of these models were made available for the U.S. so these cars are quite the gem for families and auto collectors alike. But don’t fret if you’re not able to get your hands on one of these exclusive cars. The newly redesigned 2017 Toyota still gives you that new sporty look with the reliability and reputation that Corollas are known for. And that best of both worlds type of car is perfect for living in Charlotte. You will be able to get around Charlotte with great gas mileage while fitting into that upscale Charlotte image.
