    欧洲车另算一档,BMW,BENZ自己也分高中低档车,但价钱,配置,性能,跟一般的日本车,美国车,没什么么可比性,也就LEXUS,ACURA有几款车,价位档次跟他们差不多。
    我说的,只是大众标准而已。

    1998-2002 Toyota Corolla
    by Jeremy Cato


    1998 Toyota Corolla CE, Click image to enlarge

    You probably won't be surprised to learn the Toyota Corolla is a good used car. How good is another matter.

    Consider recent history. There hasn't been a safety recall of the Corolla since 1997. That's important because for the 1998 model year Toyota introduced an all-new Corolla.

    In fact, it's really quite amazing. Not one recall for the completely restyled and re-engineered Corolla launched in the fall of '97. What's more, used car buyers looking at a 1998-02 Corolla need be specifically alert to only a small handful of issues related to the cruise control system, water leaks and long engine crank times.

    No wonder Toyota has sold nearly 30 million Corollas worldwide in this car's nine generations of history. Toyota engineers like to say the Corolla contains the DNA for all the company's other products. Maybe that's more than mere marketing spin.

    Another thing. The '98 Corolla signaled that Toyota, long known for well-built, reliable cars with higher than average price tags, had set out to gain a small reputation for introducing new models with lower sticker prices.

    Indeed, in the fall of '97, a confidential memo sent to all Toyota Canada dealers and their sales managers noted the price of the 1998 Toyota Corolla would be going down 8.1 per cent on average versus 1997 versions of comparably equipped cars. Speaking of prices going down, Corolla used car prices don't go down as dramatically and as quickly as they do on many small cars (check out the pricing box).

    Okay, what are you looking at in a '98 and newer Corolla. For one thing, even the base VE Corolla comes with dual airbags, AM/FM cassette, power steering and a 1.8-litre 120-horsepower engine. Of course the only engine available with the Corolla from '98 onwards was the 1.8-litre four-banger, though horsepower went up to 125 in 2000. That engine, by the way, boasts 10 per cent better fuel economy than the '97 version, not to mention 20 more horsepower than the '97 car.

    How'd Toyota do it? Among other things, aluminum alloy for the engine's block and a cylinder head made lighter by 29 kilograms (64 pounds). Less weight, better mileage. In the long term, this engine has proven to cost less to own, too. Why? It has a maintenance-free timing chain, rather than a belt-driving the camshafts. (Typically, timing belts must be replaced at 80,000-100,000 km, at a cost of about $500 or more.)

    Fuel savings were also gained by equipping the Corolla with a direct ignition system similar to the one on the Camry. Bottom line: clean, efficient burns that deliver enough power to get the Corolla from 0-100 km/h in under 10 seconds, comfortably.

    This '98 Corolla is also quieter than the car it replaced. Credit there goes to added insulation, vibration-damping panels, asphalt and PVC sheeting and foam sealing material. The critical changes to cut down on wind noise included different weatherstripping and re-shaped side mirrors and front A-pillars that bracket the windscreen and help hold up the roof.

    Squeaks and rattles - not that the '97 Corolla had many, if any - were dealt with by making the chassis stiffer and better isolated. This small car feels tight and well-built.

    Inside, the '98 car boasted bigger, better seats, a glove box three times larger than its predecessor and larger, more accessible controls for both the heating/cooling/ventilation and sound systems.

    On the safety ledger, de-powered airbags were standard for driver and front passenger, along with three-point seatbelts at all three rear seating positions. No standard anti-lock braking, though.

    In the looks department, the 1998-2002 Corolla is an unremarkable sedan. If you want high style, go somewhere else. But this made-in-Canada commuter is a brilliantly conceived and executed grocery getter. You can't do much better in the nearly-new marketplace.

    2002 corrola LE,我不是车主,但经常开,主要是高速,经常保持在120,不觉的吃力,超车也不费劲。发飘吗,我觉得还好,不象别人说得那么差。这也不能怪它,谁让他车轻呢,还省油呢,想不发飘就召集几个壮汉坐在后面。
    是一款比较中庸的车,性能也可靠,还有,它还很保值。

    Re: 求救 four banger 怎么翻译?谢谢

    four-banger = 4 Cylinder
    six-banger = 6 Cylinder

    banger is an express term of cylinder which means something is making noise
