New Toyota Corolla
The new Toyota Corolla was revealed in its Touring Sport and hatchback guise; the sedan form should be unveiled soon and make its way to India eventually.
The Toyota Corolla Touring Sport was created in Europe and will cater to the growing European and American markets. Toyota claim the new body-type is aimed at people looking for practicality and style without compromise. The new Corolla is based on the brand’s new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-C platform. The new model is not an adaptation of the hatchback but rather an all-new creation and we expect the same for the sedan variant that will follow.
Engine options in Europe currently include a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol motor developing either 116 PS or 122 PS, or the 1.8-litre 180PS motor. There is also the 2.0-litre hybrid powertrain on offer for the more environment-conscious buyer.
The Corolla is the brand’s most popular name. The sedan version of Toyota’s most popular car is what we have to keep an eye out for as we expect that to arrive here in India.
