1980 Toyota Corolla

The 1980 Toyota Corolla was unchanged from 1979, when it received a new chassis, body, and engine.

The 1980 Toyota Corolla came in many body styles with several trim levels. The two- and four-door sedan came as a standard, DX or E5. The hardtop coupe came as a standard or SR5, and the sports coupe came as a SR5. The wagon came as a standard or DX. The liftback came as a standard and SR5. The 1980 Toyota Corolla had a 75-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine.

Owners of the 1980 Toyota Corolla speak very highly of it, and many are still being driven today. Parts are very inexpensive and because of the car's simple construction, just about anyone can perform routine maintenance and small repairs. Body rust is a problem, as are uncomfortable seats that are not suited for long drives.
