Without a trick has not done. New Toyota Corolla

In fact, the answer to the question of why the Japanese made two versions of the Corolla lies on the surface – along with beautiful stories that since the appearance of the model in 1966, more than 46 million units have been sold. The fact is that it is the sedan version that is the best-selling one, which means it generates the most profits. And if for a hatchback and a station wagon, a bold move with a bright appearance was fully justified, then it was worth tinkering with a sedan – to determine the consumer audience by country and give customers what they expect.
So two variants of a sedan with the obvious names “Sporty” and “Prestige” were born.

LIQUID GLASS FOR MACHINE. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

A well-groomed, polished car looks prestigious and expensive, regardless of its real price. Usually, wax-based formulations are used as a polishing agent. But there is a better, easier to use tool – liquid glass. It is able to recreate a mirror effect on the surface of the body – everything around it will be reflected on it. The effect is more noticeable than wax. A car polished with such a composition will always be eye-catching. WHAT ARE THE VARIETIES? Liquid glass can be sold in different forms. There are special containers with liquid that need to be applied to the surface of the body and wait for drying – the composition crystallizes and forms a glossy surface. Continue reading
