Toyota Corolla

AE90/2 Series II Corolla

1 Jul 1991

Along with a new grille and minor trim changes, the ’91 Corolla range was rationalised.

Only the SE hatch manual retained the 60kW 1.4, the SE sedan gained the 67kW 1.6-litre 4A-FC engine, and the CS and CS-X made way for the new CSi sedan and hatch and Ultima sedan and Seca.

The latter two were powered by a new 77kW version of the 4A-FE 1.6 engine first seen in the Corolla 4WD wagon.

The 100kW 4A-GE-engined GTi hatch replaced the SX hatch.

A further round of changes in late ’92 saw the SE 1.4, Ultima 1.6 and GTi models die and the CSi became the CSi Limited. A new 85kW 1.8-litre 7A-FE four-cylinder engine provided better driveability in the new Seca RV and Seca Ultima.

Keen pricing, extra standard features and aggressive marketing kept sales of the rapidly ageing AE90 series buoyant.

In fact, around 4.5 million AE90 Corollas were manufactured worldwide.
