LAS VEGAS — Toyota pulled the covers off the 2009 Corolla sedan and Matrix sport wagon today at the Specialty Equipment Market Association show here.

The new Corolla, the 10th generation of the world’s best-selling compact sedan, stays about the same size, but its appeal could be greater because of an expanded lineup.

Sales are expected to start February 11, said Ed La Rocque, Toyota’s national car marketing manager. He said prices won’t be announced until close to launch.

The 2009 Corolla will be available in five versions: standard, LE, XLE, S and XRS. A 1.8-liter, 132-hp engine powers all but the top-of-the-line XRS, which gets a 2.4-liter, 158-hp engine, 17-inch wheels and other performance-oriented spiffs.

    I am now driving a 2009 Toyota Corolla as a rental and I love I really wish I could keep it. I like how at night time when it you start the car the lights automatically turn on and this car rides much smoother than the first rental they had me in which was a 2007 Nissan Sentra. I highly recommend people the Toyota Corolla to everyone.

    Both are now overpriced, and it’s a shame.

    Corolla looks great, and the Matrix roof line looks lower to the ground – looks better!
