The Corolla has undergone numerous redesigns across its multiple generations. While it started as a subcompact car, it has since grown into the compact segment.

The Corolla’s global reach is vast, with sales spanning across North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America. Depending on the region, the Corolla can have specific variations in terms of specifications, design elements, and features. For instance, in some markets, the Corolla is also available as a station wagon or a hatchback.
