“The 2011 Corolla and Matrix exemplify the new direction of Toyota by bringing together design, technology, performance and active safety features such as the Star Safety System,” said Warren Orton, Director at Toyota Canada Inc. “Every Corolla and Matrix sold in Canada is built here, and for 2011, Canadian drivers will enjoy even more features yet still benefit from the same incredible value customers seek in these models.”
