Cape Town - The Corolla Quest remains one of the most popular vehicles in South Africa, with the Quest nameplate accounting for 1 out of every 5 units in South Africa's C-segment (22%).

The Corolla Quest is available in two grades, standard and Plus. The ‘Plus’ model adds a 4-speaker audio system with CD and USB interface. As part of the 2016 specification enhancement, Plus models receive Bluetooth functionality for hands-free call operation with the added benefit of Bluetooth audio playback. 

Standard features: 

Illuminated entry
Multi-information display

Powering the Quest is a 1.6 litre petrol capable of 90kW/154Nm and can be mated to either a six-speed manual or four-speed auto. Plus models are exclusively equipped with the 6-speed manual “cog-swapper”.

Pricing for the new models remains ultra-competitive and continues the legacy of great value.
