the comprehensive History of the toyota fielder
The existence of the Toyota fielder dates back to the year 2000 when it was first announced, its original name being the Toyota corolla fielder. Much of its features were based on the Toyota corolla van and the sedan. The Toyota corolla fielder inherited its chassis and its front view from the A post/pillar from the sedan of the time
The rear of the fielder was completely redesigned to give a station wagon shape. Giving the corolla fielder a sedan chassis had ripped the benefit of a comfortable driving experience with a reduction in noise.
The body dimensions were 1435 in terms of length 1695mm as the width and a height of 1520 mm.
All Toyota corolla grades produced incorporated a petrol engine except for one grade which used a diesel engine. The transmission by that time was either manual or automatic.
The 190 hp 1800cc grade had an added advantage as it is the only grade that incorporated a six speed manual transmission, the rest were 5speed for the manual and 4speed for the automatic.
Not much changes came in 2000 as only the driver’s seat were widened giving the driver a more comfortable feel and. They also introduced the wide view mirrors which was an added advantage.

However in 2002, more physical changes were done. The designers had a goal of giving the model a stronger presence. This led to a complete redesign of the lower grille, the upper grille and the front bumper, the suspension system was also changed. A better performance lower emission engine was employed; this was an added advantage by then since its fuel economy was very enticing
2004 and above toyota fielder
In 2004, the 1500 cc 110hp was leading in terms of fuel consumption standards as compared to others. The diesel engine was completely removed from the fielder. A redesign of the exterior was redone in that the grille and the bumper were made wide. The headlights were made to much with the grilles. Light emitting diodes were also incorporated in the rear combination lamps.
2006 and above toyota fielder
In the year 2006, the Toyota corolla fielder had already come in to age. It was released together with the sedan. In the fielder, the sedan’s chassis still remained but with more enhancement hence more driving comfort and running performance.
The length was made wider and the seats more comfortable. Better fuel emission standards were achieved and so was the fuel consumption. For all the grades a continuously variable transmission CVT was introduced except for the FWD 1500 110 hp which had already achieved a fuel consumption of up to 17.2 km/l.
2008 and above toyota fielder
2008 saw a further change in bumper grille and headlight design the rear combination lap design also changed. In 2009 the 1500hp had increased fuel consumption to 18.6 km/l. this was as a result more evaluation in the transmission and the engine.
In 2010 it had already reached whooping 20km/l fuel consumption. The CVT-I transmission was adopted and with it an addition of the valvemetric to the other grades. This would lead to even much less fuel consumption to 18.6 km/l for FWDs and 15.6km/l for the 4WDs.
2012 and above toyota fielder
In 2012 the third generation Toyota corolla fielders were born. This was an entire engineering redesign of the model. The upper grille and the headlights were fully integrated providing a keen and wide look.
The vitz chassis was adopted and there was a complete size reduction. The rear foot space was increased to 40mm and the length of the trunk to 90 mm. a more spacious interior was then achieved. When the rear collapsible passenger’s seat was collapsed it is able to achieve 872 liters. Flatter headlights were used and the lower grille was enlarged.
Safety features of the fielder were also improved. A pre-collision system sensor PCS was incorporated which helps in preventing and mitigating collision. A lane departure alert sensor too was incorporated which helps prevent vehicles from departing from their lane. Also, an aromatic high beam sensor was also put in place ensuring optimal visibility during night time driving.check the latest on the toyota website about the toyota fielder
