What is an SR 5 and is the 1989 corolla always a 4 x 4? thanks
I'd like to buy a 1989 Toyota corolla SR5 and i was wondering if these cars are 4 x 4 and thus good in the snow? thanks. susan also, just what IS an SR 5???
Hi Sue, Toyota did produce AWD Corollas for the 88-92 model years. The system was called four wheel drive all-trac. The Corolla sedan AWD was produced in very VERY small numbers. The Corolla all-trac wagon, which was sold in base and SR5 models, was produced in much larger numbers but looked nothing like the Corolla sedan. SR5 is a trim level used by Toyota usually given to SUV's and used to be given to the higher end SUV's. The higher end SUV's now have the "limited" trim level. As far as the cars performance in the snow AWD's systems generally give you better grip in the snow than the 2WDs.
this was an extremely helpful answer. i'm totally impressed that colin was in touch with me within six hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks. susan
