Toyota Corolla: Hi there, My brother has left me a car before

This answer was rated:

Hi there, My brother has left me a car before moving back to Ireland. It is a Toyota Corolla 5 door hatchback VVT-I Linea Terra, it's petrol and the date of first registration is 27/03/2002.
It was originally an Irish vehicle. I am now trying to get the car insured but each insurer is asking the model make and type. They do not recognise the linea terra bit and keep asking if it is a GLS, T2, T3 etc. The log book doesnt give any info and the DVLA say to call the manufacturer to find out what the UK equivalent to the linea terra is. I cant seem to get insurance unless I get this info. During the time here my brother just picked the type randomly but I dont want to insure this way in case I have an accident and the insurance wont pay as I have the wrong type. PLease help


If you get me your VIN (Chassis) number ill see what I can do for you.

Hi there the VIN number is XXXXX
I have looked through a lot of Toyota forums and it seems to be the T2. It seems a choice between T2, T3 and T spirit


Im still working on your vehicle type but have put a list together of what is on each spec of vehicle in the range. It might help whilst I continue searching. Ill be in touch soon. Steve

T2 on a Corolla is UK base spec.

Electric front windows with one touch operation
and anti-trap
4 speaker radio and CD player
Manual exterior mirrors
3-spoke design steering wheel
Fog lamps - Rear with auto cancelling
Manual Air conditioning
15-inch steel wheels with new design wheelcaps

T3 adds:

Carbon style fascia (hatchback models only)
Leather steering wheel and gear knob(hatchback
models only)
Unique interior trim with blue accent
Steering wheel mounted audio
controls(hatchback models only)
Front and rear power windows with anti
trap(front only on hatchbacks)
Colour keyed and electrically adjustable exterior
Rear bumper extensions(hatchback models only)
Side skirts(hatchback models only)
Front and rear foglamps
15-inch alloy wheels with locking wheel nuts

T Spirit adds:
Front grille with chrome surround
Rain sensing wipers
Electrically adjustable and heated colour keyed
exterior mirrors
Electrochromic rear view mirror
Metallic effect fascia
6 speaker radio and CD player
Electric tilt and slide sunroof
Automatic air conditioning system with digital
climate control
15-inch alloy wheels with locking wheel
nuts(different design to T3)

T2 is different to the Irish base Terra spec in that it doesn't get colour coded handles or mirrors, has a more basic radio, doesn't have electric mirrors, but gets air conditioning instad.


An explanation from Toyota below.

Your car would appear to be the equivalent of an 'S' or 'GS' model.
