DO you know anyone who wasn’t a fan of the popular television sitcom Malcolm in the Middle? The exploits of Malcolm, despite being the middle child of his zany family, always managed to surprise and entertain.

In addition to the features found on all other Corollas, the Sprinter features a sporty styling twist courtesy of anthracite alloy rims, a boot-lid spoiler and unique body colour and trim options. Upgrades to the Sprinter for 2015 include the standard fitment of Toyota’s award-winning multimedia touchscreen infotainment system and a reverse monitor with guidelines – the lat
