The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Toyota Sprinter page on 29 September 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Toyota Sprinter was a compact car manufactured by Toyota as a variant of the Toyota Corolla. Exclusively sold in the Japanese domestic market, the Sprinter was aimed to be sportier than its Corolla sibling, with the Sprinter being sold at the Toyota Vista Store (formerly known as Toyota Auto Store before 1980) while the Corolla was sold at the eponymous Toyota Corolla Store, which focused on economical cars compared to the more upmarket Vista store.

The Sprinter is notable for being used as the base vehicle for two joint projects between Toyota and General Motors in the United States and Australia. From 1984 to 2002, variants of the Sprinter were manufactured by NUMMI in Fremont, California, known as the Chevrolet Nova (1984–1988), Geo Prizm (1988–1997), and Chevrolet Prizm (1997–2002). The Holden Nova was manufactured by United Australian Automobile Industries from 1989 to 1996.

Each generation of the Corolla had a corresponding Sprinter sibling, until the introduction of the Corolla E140 in 2000. The Sprinter was directly replaced by the Toyota Allex and NUMMI would also commence export of the Corolla-derived Pontiac Vibe hatchback from the United States to the Japanese domestic market badged as the Toyota Voltz. Both were sold at the Toyota NETZ Store, which succeeded the Toyota Vista dealer network.
