The first-generation Toyota Corolla was launched since the 5th of November, 1966 as a two-door saloon. The year 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the longest-running compact car that became a household name in the automotive industry worldwide. To commemorate the Toyota Corolla's 50th anniversary, a special anniversary model was launched.

Toyota Corolla Axio Hybrid "50 Limited"

Called the "50 Limited", it was based on the 4-door Axio Hybrid saloon and this special model features an emblem at the back as seen on the first-generation Corolla as well as special cosmetic upgrades and a red-and-black themed interior, an ode to the first-generation Toyota Corolla KE10 when it was first launched in Japan five decades ago. Two exterior colors are available such as White Pearl Crystal Shine and Black Mica and it's priced at 2.4 million Japanese Yen (around 1,111,000 Philippine Pesos). This model is available to order exclusively for the Japanese market up until September 1st, 2016, with up to 500 units made.
