Default Toyota Corolla Fielder GT TRD Turbo Set For April Release

Quote:
Toyota Technocraft (TRD) have added the Corolla Fielder to its line up of complete cars alongside the Corolla Axio GT and the Vitz TRD Turbo M.


Ignoring the wagon body, the Corolla Fielder GT is essentially the same as the Corolla Axio GT outside and underneath with the same 1NZ-FE 1.5L engine and IHI turbocharger, intercooler and ECU to produce 150PS @ 6,000rpm and 20.0kg/m @ 4,800rpm (40PS and 5.7kg/m over standard). A stronger clutch cover is also added to cope with the higher output and the suspension benefits from a full TRD Sportivo kit which includes lowered springs with matched shock absorbers and front and rear stabilizers. TRD TF4 16 inch alloy wheels with 195/55 R16 tires finish off the performance enhancements for the Corolla Fielder GTs standard equipment. Optional parts include larger 17 inch TF4 or TF1 alloys with Michelin Pilot Preceda tires, a Bilstein suspension kit and TRD sports brake pads and shoes.

The Corolla Fielder GT also gets a smiliar front lip spoiler, side skirts and rear bumper spoiler as the Corolla Axio GT, as well as GT badges, a 3-spoke sports steering wheel and a TRD logo leather shift knob. Other optional parts include 18mm wide fender protectors, RECARO SR-7 seats (black only) and TRD GT body stripes. As a dealer option its also possible to order a dashboard panel set, TRD Sportivo door scuff plates and a TRD sports air cleaner.
The Toyota Corolla Fielder GT complete car will go on sale April 5th for 2,670,000 JPY (US$30,140).

I can use some of those high performance drum brakes for my all so special 08 2.5i with rear drums.

Why Subaru went backwards to rear drums for only one year on the base 2.5i model only, I don't know. I guess they had a surplus on drums in the parts bin.

Why I got a 2.5i with rear drums, I don't know either.

Don't worry, you'll never get the chance unless you move to Japan.

Am I the only one who thinks this is teh hawtness? Yeah, $30k seems a bit much but look at all the TRD upgraded hardware, wheels, brakes, body kit, AND Recaros. This seems like a FAR better package than the 2008 Mugen Civic failboat.

I like it. My ex has an '08 Yaris S and I would have loved that IHI based turbo kit on that lol. Always been a fan of TRD parts (except some of the cheap plastic stick on fuel door covers and "racing pedals")

Ultra vanilla or not, IMHO the S and XRS Corollas are more agressive looking and more attractive than the Impreza:

My god they're still selling the same TRD Shift knob and using the same awful POS intercooler design from the late 1980's!

Am I the only one that has a bad feeling that all of the TRD engineers have been long since replaced by monkies who know how to apply TRD stickers to 20+ y/o designs?

1NZ-FE (Yaris, xA, 1st gen xB, Echo) w/ a turbo 150BHP motor wouldnt be bad.... but if this JDM Corolla weighs around the same as the USDM Corolla.... not so sure.

Heh, I find it funny that they haven't changed their intercooler design since 1989. That is the exact I/C on my Celica minus a little piping change. Guess they had a few extras laying around the warehouse? Car doesn't look too bad though.
