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. Much like Mal­colm, the Corolla Sprinter (de­spite be­ing a mid-spec model) man­ages to punch well above its weight in terms of stan­dard fea­tures and, with the ad­di­tion of ex­tra stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion for 2015, may well be­come the pick of the Corolla bunch. 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

ter of which is a seg­ment-lead­ing fea­ture. The Sprinter comes stan­dard with the com­pany’s 90 kw/154 N.m 1,6-litre petrol en­gine, mated with a six-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion.
