“This Toyota is my first car and my first love, a great...”

★★★★☆

written by phillyctr on 09/09/2008

This Toyota is my first car and my first love, a great intro to fast cars, high revving 16 valve engine gave plenty performance and ultra reliable, reasonable running costs, and standard suspension the car would not go round bends very well at all, had a quite a few scary moments due to body roll which in turned to fishtailing. A decent setup would cure this though. A future classic and will always hold a place in my heart, if you come across a good one, snap it up.

★★★★☆

written by andymike1 on 25/08/2008

The Toyota Corolla still looks well cool, considering its age. Never dissapoints and always puts a smile on your face. Come on 8000 rpm fun for under a grand, and the interiors are just top notch and easy to work on yourself, even someone with the most bassic knowlege.

★★★★☆

written by on 09/07/2008

Overall its not a bad car but i would rather have golf gti mk2 or mk1 over the corolla gti as they are much more solid and engines are bullet proof unlike the corolla gti. Were the best back in the days but not now - too many rust boxes around.

★★★★★

written by corolla 4age on 21/02/2008

Very fast (wheel spins in third), surprisingly practical, legendary engine and also high revving and is solid and reliable, surprisingly comfortable, packed full of gadgets for its age (electric mirrors, windows, sunroof etc) and I just love the sharp clutch and fast shifting gearbox. I recommend one now to anyone except for a first time driver as they would be flying through hedges and fields and also boy racers ruin them with Lexus lights and rubbish like that. I recommend this car to enthusiasts or people who look after them. wax oil the chassis as soon as you get one or even better galvanise it. then it should last you for life.

White Toyota Corolla Gti-16's for some reason look better as the spoiler and shape of the car looks sharper.

“Wot a fast car. The Toyota Corolla Gti is still the...”

★★★★★

written by FAST CAR. on 28/12/2002

Wot a fast car. The Toyota Corolla Gti is still the best selling Hot hatch after Golf Gti but it will kill the Golf in every way. The Gti-16V is a hot hatch to be remembered and they hold their value, unlike NOVA's they NASTY. My Corolla is black has got 19" RSS Kahns on it, a full subaru impreza front (bonnet, bumber vents etc), flush tailgate, chipped, then superchipped, induction kit, full twin DTM exhaust, rear Escort cosworth bumper, cream leather interior,....etc

Overall 0-100 = 14.2 seconds (approx)
with a top speed of 135MPH (approx)

Speeddemon's Response to 61016_FAST CAR.'s Review

Written on: 26/11/2005

The GTi is a great car but to my mind not as good as its predecessor the GT Coupe (also called the Levin and the Sprinter in other countries). Same engine and probably slightly better performance due to it being a bit lighter plus all the joys of RWD. Sadly I sold mine rather than leave her in mothballs (she'd have been the perfect track day car or drift car) and not only would she have held her value (like the newer FWD GTi's) but she's now worth between 6 and 8 times what I sold her for!!!

“what a car the Toyota Corolla Gti-16 is! I had one of...”

★★★★★

written by arry. on 05/06/2002

what a car the Toyota Corolla Gti-16 is! I had one of these after a peugeot 205 gti and it killed it in every way. Comfortable, smooth drive, fast as you could wish from a hot hatch (would ease past golfs, 205's, astra gte's etc). handling was great once it had been lowered 40mm and 15's fitted. Inside the seats are superb and the dash layout puts other cars to shame. Outside the car is not the prettiest, but by removing all stickers and lowering it, plus tinting the windows, the car looks the part. I would recommend a full s/s system and JR induction kit, coupled with a fensport chip - then you've got a car with a 16 sec quarter time - not bad for a 1600cc N/A!

Skell's Response to 26500_arry.'s Review

Written on: 17/11/2005

I loved my Corolla GTi the drive is second to none at it handled so well I could get it sideways on any corner(front wheel drive) I didn't notice a flat spot and wouldnt change into third until id hit 60 in second. It had no mods no induction kit and often done 130mph standard, beat other corolla GTi's with plenty of mods. Sometimes if your real luck you just get a fast one. Still the best fun car I've ever had so under rated its untrue. If you've ever had one you already know!!

I got my corolla for £120 quid - it had 15in alloys and a full janspeed ex. It's an evil car which hates going slow.

hard to get a good one now (people keep tinkering and messing them up)i used to have dolphin grey 1990 model these cars are beutifully made and engineered the later speck with the chequered seats and engine uprate is adequitely fast even by todays standards, mine was vandelised and repair was beyond economical sense , ive sold and drove a lot of cars and ive got to say its by far the best in its class for that era when you consider everything spec performance drive cost of ownership depreciation, only one gripe the bodies they rust like mad, this means i cant get a decent one for love nor money that hasnt been "BWAD BWOYED" up i wish i wish that toyota had followed the Audi route and galvanised the stupid things id still own one "I MISS IT SO MUCH" boo hoo sniff sniff, But i know, i know that in my heart of hearts theres some old geezer who bought one with his retirement and its done 12 miles and it lives in a heated damp free garage with carpets and some ferrari porn on the walls it never goes out in the rain and gets started and ran for 10 minutes in the morning and ten at night but before this he pours a nice warm cup of mobil 1 in the cam to prevent cam wear fom that silly overrevving choke

The corolla GTI (4age) is a mighty fine and very underestimated hot hatch from the land of the rising sun. I now own 'arry's' GTI from which this review stems and have done for 2yrs. One of only 2 in UK in special factory black/switch paint, 0-60 7secs, 140mph 160bhp+loads more mods, former Alpine sponsored SPL car. Now on 140k miles and only problem was a crank pulley/driveshaft. Trim level, mpg, performance, image/reliability all excellent. Rare car, sunroof/tailgate/arches are weak spots, but the 4AGE 7.2k redline makes it a very capable motor. Puts modern GTI's to shame. My reason for selling it shorlty..Nissan Pulsar beckons. Buy a 4AGE and you wont be disappointed.

I've had my Corolla GTi-16 for 6 months and not had one problem with it and I drive it hard! I've beaten BRM Rovers, Golf GTi's,Renault 19 16v, Fords etc. I even had a go at an Audi S2, I didn't win but I put up a very good fight up to 110 mph! I have put Nissan GTi-R 15" wheels on (black) and tinted the top of the rear lights. I love it. The only problem, like you said is the rotten sunroof, which doesn't leek. Well done!
