Car reviews - Toyota - Corolla - Ultima sedan
15 Feb 2001
By BRUCE NEWTON
THE Corolla's body has high-strength steel to increase rigidity, crashworthiness and dent resistance. Body reinforcements were made for increased front and side impact protection, and the B-pillar was also reinforced and pillar width increased to maximise side impact protection. The instrument panel is reinforced by high-strength steel to minimise the intrusion of steering column and pedals into the cabin. Energy absorbing material is incorporated into the doors, while soft upper interior sections on the roof side rails and inner A and B-pillars aim to protect the head. Dual front airbags and ABS brakes are standard on the Ultima. Front seatbelts are now adjustable for height too, while the rear seat features three lap-sash seatbelts. A high-mounted rear stop lamp and three child anchorage points are provided.
