Special Edition Toyota Corolla Celebrates 50 Million Sales

Special Editions / Comments

That's a lot of Corollas.

In the automotive world, there are a few cars that have stood the test of time and built up a cult following. One such vehicle is the tried, trusted, and tried again Toyota Corolla. This humble range of family sedans and hatchbacks has proven time and again to be among the most reliable cars ever built, and Toyota recently celebrated 50 million sales of these little die-hards. Over the years the Corolla has come in countless configurations and special editions, but it's not often that you get to celebrate 50 million sales, so Toyota in all its wisdom decided to celebrate this historic milestone with, you guessed it, a special edition.

Named the Toyota Corolla 50 Million Edition, this special version of the Corolla is available in four-door sedan, five-door hatchback, and estate configurations in Japan. The exterior of the sedan or estate features 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 215/45R17 tires. The hatchback gets smaller 16-inch wheels. The wheels are finished in matte black for a sporty look and match the blacked-out lower front grille and rear spoiler. These cars are adorned with 50 million Edition badges. The color options for the new special edition include Platinum White Pearl Mica, Black ica, Army Rock Metallic, Precious Metal, and Slate Gray Metallic.

The interior features a ton of 50 Million Edition badges to remind you of Toyota's global domination, as well as some snazzy synthetic leather seats with gold, red, or orange stitching. In terms of tech, these special Corollas get a nine-inch infotainment display with a six-speaker sound setup and an air purification system. Under the hood, Toyota offers a hybrid electric powertrain that makes use of a naturally-aspirated 1.8-liter engine and electric motor combo producing 121 horsepower. Power is sent to the front wheels (or all four wheels in the sedan and estate) via a CVT transmission. Prices start at ¥2,830,000 ($24,771) for the Corolla Sport, ¥2,835,000 ($24,814) for the Corolla Sedan, and ¥2,884,500 ($25,248) for the Corolla estate. We doubt that this car will ever become a collectible, but stranger things have happened.
