Editor's Pick

Usually considered an economy ride, the Toyota Corolla is getting the royal treatment as part of a promotion for its 2009 line.

Saatchi & Saatchi, LA's site for the brand gives visitors an extensive taste of the blue-blood lifestyle by placing them directly in the middle of a vast estate and giving them a chance to roam the surroundings. Just by moving the mouse, the diorama revolves from the pool to the mansion to the well-trimmed gardens all the way to the lovely ocean view.

Of course, there are many items to click on, including the mansion itself, which offers viewers a video of Corolla 'styling' tips as well as a mini-game called 'Whack a Bust.' In fact, each clickable area features its own video reel and game to humorously tout Corolla features including navigation and audio. As an added bonus, a PDF guide makes visitors feel like royalty by aligning the Corolla driving experience with blue-blood tips such as proper grooming, eating the best caviar and hosting a dignitary all within the confines of your automobile.
