In Japan, the Toyota Corolla claimed the top-selling spot just about three years after it was launched. Back then the Corolla came with a four-speed manual transmission on the floor which was mated to a 1.1-litre engine unlike the regular cars of that time which had typical 3-speed column shifter. The automaker is now selling the 11th generation model which is made in 13 countries and sold in more than 150 countries across the globe.
