The ninth generation model, which was introduced in August 2000, saw a change to a new design that conveyed thickness and therefore differed from the old. The “New Century Value” concept was adopted, and as the chassis was renewed, the car body measured in length, width, and height at 4,365mm, 1,695mm, and 1,470mm respectively, thereby enlarging it to a 5 number body category. For the exterior design, the flowing design was developed to take attention away from the vehicle height through the sharpening of the incline of the front and rear pillars.

For the interior, the aim was to enhance quality; a luxurious and sporty feel was achieved through the use of wooden panels and aluminum panels.

Moreover, vertical two-tone colors were used on the instrument panel, and because it was designed to emphasize horizontal space, the interior space achieved great space and openness. Self-luminous meters were used as well; such changes in the equipment led to an even greater boost to the luxuriousness of the vehicle.

Furthermore, another distinctive feature of this model is that this COROLLA was the first to equip VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) and TRC (Traction Control).

For the exterior, the designs for the front grille, bumper, and headlights were changed.

In February 2004, with the aim to improve environmental performance, all gasoline engine vehicles achieved the 2005 Gas Emission Standards 50% Reduction “New ☆☆☆.”

In April 2004, a second round of minor changes was implemented. For the exterior, the designs for the bonnet and fender were changed, leading to a greater air of novelty. Moreover, for the interior, the designs for the seat covers and instrument panel were changed for improved quality. As for the engine, because it did not adhere to environmental standards, the diesel engine was removed from the lineup.

In December of the same year, the 1.5L FF grade, which was the main car model, achieved a certification for the “2005 Gas Emission Standards 75% Reduction (SU-LEV (☆☆☆☆))” through cleaner gas emission, thus becoming subject to even greater special tax measures.

Tenth Generation E14#/15# Model(2006-2014)

In October 2006, the tenth generation model was introduced, carrying over the design of the previous generation model. Moreover, from this point on, “Axio” is added as a subname.
