All these configurations can be mated to different types of transmissions, either 5-speed manual gearbox or 4-speed automatic transmissions, for example. Also, a special 7-speed Super CVT-i set is offered as well.
Because Toyota made a clear distinction between Japan-spec versions and products for other markets, we at Naijauto team will brief quickly the differences of these two before giving the price of Toyota Corolla 2010 in Nigeria.
Japan-spec models differ slightly from others
E140 is divided into 2 categories: sedan Corolla Axio and station wagon Corolla Fielder. These models have smaller exterior dimensions than others due to Japanese government regulations. Only in these cars of Japan can you find G-BOOK – the subscription telematics service to link with cell phones, PC or other G-book equipped cars etc.
In other markets
A wide-body E140 is presented with most styling designs and interiors from Japan-spec Axio models but having wider and longer dimension. Each market welcomes the launch of all-new version or later face-lifted variants at different times. However, most countries enjoyed the introduction of Toyota Corolla 2010 model facelift in the same year, which features redesigned bumpers, air dams and front grille. It employs Toyota ZR engines with Dual VVT-i paired with both manual transmission and automatic CVT.

Besides, pricing also vary greatly due to the car condition, including foreign used (Tokunbo) and locally (Nigerian) used units as buying brand new is impossible now. Several other factors like currency exchange rate, custom clearance tariffs or fuel mileage do affect prices, too.

Ant, on Edmunds.com
I just purchased this car from dealer in GA for $16,300 [~N6 million] included tax/dealer fee. Great car, very reliable just have 100 miles on it.
Tony the test driver, on Edmunds.com
This is a nice car in the S trim. Body kit makes amazing job beautifying this fairly dull car. Only grill remains dull. It is so smooth for a small car, you don't feel if it moves. But this is not enthusiast's car. It has no soul. You may accelerate hard but there is no feel of it. Steering is questionable. Interior is great besides some hard plastic in "should be soft" places, cheap controls and questionable location of the clock. Big trunk. Nice seats. Decent legroom in the back and suitable middle spot with flat floor beneath.

Radio and CD display will show "pixel-like" squares instead of radio/CD information for a few minutes maybe once/twice a month.
Some may complain about the Toyota Corolla’s display screen
G. W, on Consumerreports.org
The display usually begins properly but then meaningless symbols appear. Stations cannot be changed. Turning off the radio may or may not help.

I bought my 2010 basic Corolla A/T 3 months back and I must say that I am loving it. I was initially considering a Yaris, but the Corolla was just priced well enough for me to switch. I am a city driver and am getting 30mpg average. But when on freeways, staying around 55-60mph gets me over 45mpg easily. The engine gives decent acceleration and the brakes are not touchy, the standard speakers (4) are decent and the dash-board layout is straight-forward, and overall the exterior is respectable.

I previously drove a Toyota Camry. I come from a Toyota family. My dad has a Camry, & my mom has a Venza. The Corolla is cuter, zippier, & gets more miles to the gallon than the Camry.
