Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros Co (AAB), sole agents for Toyota vehicles in Qatar, has said it is reaching out to car enthusiasts through a roadshow at  Doha Festival City by displaying the all-new Toyota Corolla 2020 year model, which was launched in June.
The roadshow continues until tomorrow, and is aimed at taking the Toyota Corolla “closer to car lovers who did not get an opportunity to look at the latest model”, according to a press statement from the company. AAB displayed the Corolla petrol model from September 12-17 and is showcasing the Hybrid model from Wednesday until tomorrow. This has been done to enable visitors to the booth to understand the difference in technology in the Hybrid model and how the Hybrid Electric Vehicle operates, the statement explains.
Through the roadshow, ‘lifestyle guide’ All & About Qatar has partnered with AAB Toyota to give people the chance to experience the all-new Corolla 2020.
This partnership has also led to an online social media competition where one can win a test drive for a whole week with the all-new Corolla.
The Corolla is Toyota’s “all-time best-selling car and a symbolic name for everyone since the first generation was launched in 1966”. Today, the Corolla is built in 13 countries and more than 47mn vehicles have been manufactured since the first generation.
“With each new generation, the Corolla has evolved; new advanced features and functions have been introduced to suit the needs of the time, all while inheriting the original model’s core DNA — reliability and usability — from the very first generation,” the statement notes. Exemplifying Toyota’s continuous commitment to providing environment-friendly vehicles is the addition of a hybrid electric model, which combines two power sources consisting of a petrol engine and two electric motors.
The “class-leading” model offers the “lowest fuel consumption” value in its category at 27.6km/L, enabling customers to contribute to a greener future while enjoying the increased driving satisfaction provided by its advanced technologies.
The new model offers “exceptional cabin quietness and smooth acceleration”, especially when accelerating from a standstill.
