Toyota Corolla Axio and Toyota Corolla Fielder

Toyota is one of the top selling brands in the world and the company is committed to continuous improvement in everything it creates, along with breakthrough products for the future. Smart from every perspective, as the manufacturing company likes to call it, the Toyota Corolla is the world’s best selling passenger vehicle of the year 2012. Or at least, this is what the Japanese company claims. So why not expand the model? The Toyota Corolla Axio and the Toyota Corolla Fielder have just been revealed to the public in Japan.

Both the Toyota Corolla Axio and the Toyota Corolla Fielder are hybrid vehicles. Facing the eco- friendly trend, the two Corollas come covered in a Light Blue Metallic paint that matches perfectly to some Synergy Blue logos. A new grille is a unique element that offers the two hybrids some personality. When it comes to the inside of the cars, they both have special upholstery, a blue leather shift knob, a 4.2 inch display, a faux leather dashboard and a nanoe ionizer that has the job of reducing or even removing the pollen particles.

Both the Toyota Corolla Axio sedan and the Toyota Corolla Fielder wagon are powered by a 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine that generates 74 HP (54 kW) and 111 Nm (81 lb-ft) of torque. It is mated to an electric motor that produces 61 HP (45 kW) and 169 Nm (124 lb-ft) of torque. This allows the two versions to have a combined output of 100 HP (73 kW) and a fuel economy rating of 3.0 L/100km (77.6 mpg US / 93.2 mpg UK). The cars also have some other goodies that raise interest. A future owner can have it all by paying at least ¥1,925,000 per unit. Toyota plans to sell around 1,000 Axio versions and 1,500 Fielder ones in Japan each month. Up till when, nobody knows for sure.
