Toyota Corona is the 90s car for you. Once popular between 1957-60, it passed through eleven generations, only to have been discontinued in 2002. Corona was built from the parts of two separate cars, Toyota Crown and Toyota Master. Moreover, it is the second Sedan after the Crown from Toyota. The first major facelift happened in April 1958, and in 1978, subtle changes were made. After 2002, Toyota Corona was replaced by Premio, Avensis and Camry in Japan, Europe and Asia/Pacific/America, respectively.

After 1968, Toyota Corona was marketed by the name of Toyota Corona Mark II. While staying truthful to the efficient performance, Corona Mark II gave the buyers more space at the same price. It was touching new heights in the export markets and was sold under different names, including- Carina, which is what Europeans call it in the market. Consequently, Toyota became a household name as they were selling everything from Sedans, liftbacks, taxis to station wagon bodies.

Today, Toyota Corona can be counted amongst the old-school vehicles known for being cost-effective and the best average comfort car. It is available in India in two variants, namely- Petrol and Diesel. Spotting a Toyota Corona is very rare nowadays, and it is the very reason we do not get so much variety in colours. The price of Corona ranges between INR 5.25 to 5.35 Lakhs. Finally, Corona is a minimalistic car with good ride quality.

Toyota Corona IMAGES


Toyota Corona is not cut out for the modern mindset. It derives its strength from the 90s and has the ability to smoke some of the best modern cars today. Apart from the looks, it has everything required for a decent ride. The Fuel economy also gets better with interceding generations of Corona. So, it's still very much in demand in today’s economy.

Corona is cost-effective and very reliable in the city or on highways. It can be considered a family ride but only suitable for smaller journeys. As we all know that Toyota always stands up to the expectation, and by introducing Corona, it added another star in its exemplary service.

Generations after generations, Toyota came up with Camry and Carina, which were facelift versions of Corona, but Corona still is the best in all its aspects. Talking about its features, car handling is one of the key assets and extraordinary. The suspension is very good and soft in this car, the interior is very spacious with good boot space, and it can take challenging curves head on.

The only visible drawback is its weight. Being 1090 Kgs, you should consider putting a strut bar, but if you are driving at normal speed, then it is not necessary. The power steering is a bit of a drag compared to Honda Accord. However, all these drawbacks are nothing if you love the car. Most people have been using this car for 10 years, and they still find it a good quality ride.
