The Corona is a sister car to the Celica, except that it is a 4 door sedan. Well, maybe not all of there were 4 door.

Coronas started being built in 1979 and are still going 2day. They are bigger than corollas with a 1.6 - 2.0L engine. Similar to a Carina and Exiv. The 92-96 model comes with 4A-FE, 4S-FE, 3S-FE, or 3S-GE. Theres also 2 deisel models. Very boring and bland cars but last a long time. Hard for mechanics due to engine positioning. Just a basic proven sedan with good reliability.

i think that the corona line is the high end toyota. a lot of the time they came with 6-banger's and auto with a/c and are the largest of the toyota cars it also came in a wagon. but dont overlook them in the junk yard cuz alot of them came with a r series eng (18-r , 20r,22r) and they have lots of parts interchangeable with a celica

I had a two door Corona Mark II back in last 70's during high school. I think it had a 8 RC motor and it was made in 1969.

The Corona was sold in the USA from mid/late 60's until the early 80's. The Corona is a step above the Corolla and a step below the Crown. The Corona was replaced by the Camry. (The Crown was replaced by the Cressida/Avalon). Nothing replaced the Corolla (I've had several)!
If you can find a Corona in decent shape, then you found a gem. I believe they were always four cylinder engines w/ 3 or 4 speed manual trannys (an occasional 2 speed auto).

they actually started making them in the late 50's early 60's IIRC. and made them up untill 200. they were offered in a two door coupe, a 4 door sedan, and a 5 door liftback, and a 5 door sedan. I have a 1979 corona. which is the first year, of the last generation ever to be brought into the states.

I have an '81 Corona wagon, and the reason I wanted it is because it has a 22R and A40D trans, just like the Celicas of the time. It does have a leaf sprung rear, but does use the T code. 6.7" diff. It is as close to 100% compatible with our Celicas as possible, yet gives us a 4 door wagon (handling isn't as good though).

you would probably know the Corona as a Camry, could also be badged as a Lumiere or in the larger wheel base models as a Prominent (these came with 2.0 or 2.5 V6 with or without 4 wheel steering, ..hope this helps!

A vehicle that is both classy and safe for me. But it is exceeded by the biggest manufacturers.
