I came away from the European media launch of Toyota's latest generation Corolla on the Balearic (Spanish) island of Majorca with the distinct impression that the late decision to revert the nameplate back to Corolla - used worldwide since the model first appeared in 1966 - from Auris, used in Europe for two generations plus mid-life facelifts between 2007 and 2018, had rather caught country distributors on the hop. Why the change?
