The Third Generation Corolla's were released in 1975, and featured a raised center section in the grille that carried back to more angular bodies.

Now there were a total of five Corolla models available, including two and four door sedans, a 2 door coupe, SR5 sports model and 5 door station wagon.

A new three-door "Liftback" hatchback was added to the Corolla line for 1976, featuring a split fold-down rear seat to assist in load carrying capacity - a development we today take as a given. Toyota held high expectations for the Liftback model, anticipating that it would account for some 30% of all Corolla sales.

Also introduced in 1976 (and sharing its front-end styling with the Liftback) was the new Corolla Sport Coupe, that was available in both standard and sporty SR5 versions.

While the 1st and 2nd generation Corolla models are rarely seen on Australian roads these days, the same cannot be said of the 3rd generation - such was the build quality and rugged reliability.
