The popularity of the Toyota Corolla range cannot be overstated. It is one of the most successful vehicle models ever assembled, and it is peerless when compared to its competitors. Other manufacturers can wax lyrical about their models' specifications and features, but Toyota has carved an automotive path with this range that has left it miles ahead.

The legacy of this model continues, as Toyota has added 3 new variants to the Corolla ranks. Each has been uniquely positioned to appeal to certain demographics. One of those is the Toyota Corolla Quest. It can be easy to regard the Quest as the entry-level model, due to its price modelling, but it is so much more than that.

The current range of Toyota Corolla Quest is available in 6 different models:

  • Toyota Corolla Quest 1.8 Plus
  • Toyota Corolla Quest 1.8 CVT Plus
  • Toyota Corolla Quest 1.8 Prestige
  • Toyota Corolla Quest 1.8 Prestige CVT
  • Toyota Corolla Quest 1.8 Exclusive MT
  • Toyota Corolla Quest 1.8 Exclusive CVT

Most notable, especially amongst Corolla enthusiasts, would be the exterior of the vehicle. Toyota continues to make improvements to modernize the traditional Corolla aesthetic. The headlights especially are bold and designed to heighten the driver's visibility at night. There are also plush additions when we observe the interior of the model, most apparent with the partial leather trims on the seats and steering wheel.

The overall on-road performance of the Toyota Corolla Quest has also enjoyed a boost. The range comes equipped with a 1.8l engine and keeps the Quest humming along as reliably as ever. Regardless of the tweaks that Toyota makes, it will always remain close to its values of reliability and safety.

Of course, another standout is the affordability. The Toyota Corolla Quest is the most inexpensive of the current range. The entry-model Toyota Corolla Quest 1.8 Plus retails for R298 400, whilst the model at the top of the range retails for R368 500. In the same vein, all the after-sales elements of the model are similarly inexpensive. Let’s have a look at the model’s accessories.
