Based on 12 reviews
The 1981 Toyota Corolla was virtually unchanged from the previous year.
The 1981 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 1981 Toyota Corolla had a 75-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine.
1981 Toyota Corollas are known for being reliable and well-built. Drivers seem to prefer their used Corollas to the ones being manufactured today. Because parts are so cheap and they are so easy to fix, 1981 Corollas are popular with tinkerists who enjoy performing maintenence and small repairs. Rust seems to be an issue in these cars, and the seats tends to wear out.
