Introduction



The first front wheel drive Corolla was introduced with the 5th generation of 1984. However, the SR5 Coupe, Liftback and Station Wagon retained the 4th generations rear-drive chassis.

The front-drive Corolla was as conventional as it had been in a rear-driver layout. The same 1.6-litre, SOHC engine used in the rear-drive Corolla was now positioned transversely, and was coupled to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.

Midway through the 1984 model year, the rear-drive Corolla Coupe and Liftback were offered with a new dual-overhead cam, 16-valve version of the 1.6-liter four rated at a robust 124 bhp.

The resulting Corolla GT-S is now a classic of sorts, a highly tossable, fun-to-drive vehicle that has attracted a cult following of "drifters" who slide their vehicles through corners as a motorsport form in Japan.

This DOHC engine, along with the front-drive Corolla's five-speed transaxle, also served as the drivetrain in the midengine MR2, which came to Australia in early 1985.
