Since 1994, the Corolla and the Honda Civic occupied the marketing slots that the original Camry and Accord did. Once very much entry-level cars, Corolla and Civic offered a range of amenities and performance that raises them far above the entry level. This is not completely true of some of their supposed competitors like the Mitsubishi Mirage and Nissan Sentra. The car's real major competitor was the sister-under-the-skin Geo Prizm, built with the same mechanicals and on the same production line in Fremont, California.


Year-to-year changes[edit | edit source]

1999[edit | edit source]

After the Toyota Tercel was discontinued, the Corolla temporarily became the company's entry-level car only for this model year.
