Recent ChangesThe Rear Wheel Drive versions of the Toyota Corolla ended with this model in 1987, and was replaced by the AE92 FWD Corolla in 1988. Both the SR5 and the 4A-GE GT-S model were continued with the new model / body style, but were FWD cars. The Corolla Coupe was dropped from Toyota's model lineup beginning with the AE101 version.
Styles and Major OptionsThe Toyota Corolla AE86 came in two different body styles; the SR5 model that was served with the 1.6L carbeurated 4A-C engine and the GT-S (or Apex) model supplied with a 4A-GE 1.6L double overhead cam engine. Both cars were available as a two-door notchback coupe similar to the one pictured in this article, or as a three-door hatchback coupe. The SR5 was available with an electronically controlled 4 speed automatic or 5 speed manual transmission, while the 4A-GE GT-S was only available with a 5 speed manual transmission. An interesting design aspect of this car was that the weight distribution was 50/50 F/R which made it an extremely well-handling and capable car, the GT-S model balanced so as not to induce Lift-off throttle oversteer.
The SR5 was a standard model Toyota with a mostly vinyl interior and standard cloth seats, while the GT-S had a six-way adjustable driver's seat similar in design to the seat in the Supra, and both front seats were trimmed in leather with cloth inserts in the center. The GT-S also came with Carbon-fiber look trim in the front door rear seating area panels.
Main differences between the body construction was added bracing in the GT-S, with tubular steel mounted behind the dashboard to further stiffen the car. While suspension design was similar, the GT-S model was equipped with a more aggressive linear spring in the front, a linear spring design in the rear, and more substantial gas pressure shock absorbers at all four corners. The GT-S could also be ordered with a Limited Slip differential.
