Toyota Corolla IV KE70 Sedan. White version

This generation got a new rear coil spring five-link rear end with a panhard rod, and the wheelbase was longer at 94.5 in (2,400 mm). A new 1.8 L 3T engine was optional to some markets, while parts of the world retained the old 4K.

The most notable inline-four engine advancement came in 1979 and 1983, however, as Toyota began offering the 1.5 L (1,452 cc) 3A-U and 1.6 L 4A-C engines respectively. The aluminum head, SOHC engines, although bulkier in size and weight than the K and T engines it was offered alongside, was a grand step up in performance.
