BigBody Auto Club

In the Philippines, the Corolla is nicknamed as the "Big Body".Three variants of the "Big Body" were sold, XL and XE with 1.3 liter carbureted (2E) engines, with the latter enjoying extra features like power steering, alloy wheels, digital clock and tachometer, and the GLi, with a 1.6 liter fuel-injected motor (4A-FE). The top model was offered in both manual and automatic transmissions. The Corolla "Big Body" was also the first 1.6 liter car to introduce 14-inch (360 mm) alloy wheels to the country in 1992. Other pioneer features that followed were rear seatbelts, front cup holders (late 1994) and a driver's airbag (late 1995). ABS followed during its later years.
