Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.


Last week we covered the first five generations of the vaunted Toyota Corolla, the last of which was FWD but still offered RWD coupes. These next Corollas are all FWD and only offer AWD, with RWD being a thing of the past. They also tend to be more aerodynamic than their predecessors, becoming more and more rounded as safety and style moves into the 21st century. Also, we begin to see a separation present between the North American and International models later due to size restrictions and styling preferences of different markets. Which of these beigemobiles would you take despite an utter lack of Jalop status?
