Corolla Fielder was renamed from its former model Corolla Wagon, after its model change in August 2000. Under the theme of “Value of new century car”, its main components such as engine, platform and suspensions were renewed.
The body is made slightly larger by using the Vista’s platform, and it has achieved the space of the room by making the wheelbase and overall height higher. The instrument panel is in two-tone color, and it gently curves to the door trim to show the spaciousness. Also, depending on the grade, the instrument panel adopted the wood grain and metal design. Both the seat back and the seat cushion of the rear seats can be folded and be split, with a reclining mechanism.
