Plus makes comeback on Toyota Corolla Quest

Charl Bosch

In addition to the moniker, Toyota has made keyless entry standard across the Corolla Quest range.

The Plus designation has returned as the new entry-level version of the Toyota Corolla Quest. Note: Exclusive model pictured.

 

Toyota has revived the Plus moniker for the locally-built Corolla Quest that disappeared when production of the previous generation ended a few years ago.

In a reversal though, the moniker now features on the previously unbadged entry-level model as opposed to representing the flagship the original denoted. The mid-spec Prestige and range-topping Exclusive remain unchanged though.

Aside from the renaming, Toyota has also incrementally updated the specification sheet with push-button start and keyless entry featuring across the range having been offered solely on the Exclusive until now. The only other change is the addition of a new colour, Oxide Bronze, to the colour chart.

Up front, the 1.8-litre petrol engine continues to produce 103kW/173Nm with delivery going to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional CVT. Claimed fuel consumption stands at seven-litres per 100 km for the former and 6.3 L/100 km for the latter.

As before, all models are covered by a three year/100 000 km warranty as well as a three service/45 000 km service plan.
