Toyota South Africa Motors has upgraded its Corolla Quest range, rolling out extra standard equipment across the line-up.
So, what’s new? Well, the entry-level trim level has been handed the “Plus” moniker, while the Prestige and Exclusive grade names carry over.
For the record, Plus models feature daytime running lights, colour-coded (electrically adjustable) side mirrors, air conditioning and electric windows, along with a matte-black treatment for the grille and 15-inch steel wheels.
The mid-tier Prestige models, meanwhile, upgrade to a touchscreen DVD audio system with six speakers, along with a reversing camera, cruise control, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, fabric/leather upholstery and 16-inch alloy wheels.
Finally, the flagship Exclusive trim level adds automatic air-conditioning, a TFT colour instrument cluster, full-leather seats, rain-sensing wipers and LED headlamps.
In addition, keyless entry and push-button start are now standard across the range, having previously been offered only on the top-spec model. The colour palette has also been broadened, with the inclusion of “Oxide Bronze” taking the tally to six hues.
As before, only one engine option is available: a naturally aspirated 1,8-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine delivering 103 kW and 173 N.m to the front axle via either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission.
All models come standard with a three-service/45 000 km service plan (with intervals of 15 000 km) and a three-year/100 000 km warranty.
