New emissions laws force Toyota to drop Corolla's performance outputs for 2006

9 March 2006

THE 1.8-litre engine powering Toyota’s top-selling Corolla has been detuned, dropping from 100kW of power and 171Nm of torque to 93kW and 161Nm.

A Toyota Australia spokesperson said this week that the changes were necessary in order to comply with tougher emissions regulations in force from January 1.

They affect models built from October 2005. No other changes have been made to the car, other than prices rising – the range now starts from $19,850.

Despite the changes, and the fact that a key selling point has gone, Toyota is having no trouble selling the Corolla – 3395 rolled out of showrooms last month alone.

An all-new Corolla is due for release in 2007.

Did the corolla really output that much emissions to begin with? Or is just Toyota being anal?

I always thought the corolla to be a environmentally friendly car. (What they should do is ban those 15 year old car that emit a hugh black cloud when the accelerate!)

Bill, the model you are after is: 21-469. Cannot remember if it is for XR or XRS :huh: I think maybe they were the same...i cannot recall, but that is what has worked for me :)

Advice on the install...ignore the seppo instructions and perhaps get a different nut as opposed to the locknut supplied for the securing bracket near the fuse box, incase you intend on taking the intake on and off. Oh, also...the allen screws they provide you for the air flow sensor, maybe the range of tools in my local area sucks, but i could not get a key to fit those little screws, so i had to get handy with needle nose plyers :P

Thanks MINTOS :P

Yeah i spoek to a guy over there and the 21-469 is for the 1ZZ and the 21-466 is for the Stivo. SO all is good.

Just got the stivo Zorst on. THey flanged it and added a little bit of 2 1/4 inche piping to make sure it was 2 1/4 all the way from the cat!

One thing i notice after a bit of a thrashing, (as Xoom had the zorst in his garage for years) is alot more responsiveness down low. ALso revs quicker :) so im happy with the Sportivo zorst upgrade!!!!

Yeah, I can't believe how long it took for this info to appear in the media ... we actually saw official word from Toyota back in December 05 ...

Previous topic ...

What this new story failed to mention, or Toyota failed to advise them, is an electronic fly-by-wire throttle has been fitted instead of the old cable one, all part of the "downgrade" :P
