With fresh styling, the introduction of fifth generation hybrid electric technology, a comprehensively upgraded digital user experience and an extended range of Toyota T-Mate safety and assistance features, the new Corolla is equipped to strengthen its role as a core volume model for Toyota.
Each Corolla body type has its own look and appeal. The new range gains a more refined and contemporary appearance with changes to the front grille mesh pattern, fog light bezels and alloy wheel designs. Higher grades of the hatchback and Touring Sports models gain new bi-LED headlights with an Adaptive High-beam System (AHS).
The exterior paint choices include new colours inspired by current trends in architecture, product design and fashion. Juniper Blue is the new key colour for the hatchback and Touring Sports, with a vibrant, flaring tone. When viewed close-up, it reveals red undertones which create a fresh effect with subtle changes in colour. Metallic Grey is a timeless shade with wide appeal, its appeal enhanced by dark silver flakes in the paint.
For the interior, the mood is more modern and premium with new graphics, trims and embossed patterns that add three-dimensional depth and tactile appeal to the upholsteries, surfaces and finishes. The trim and seat upholstery combinations follow new Dark and Light Harmony themes with co-ordinated colours and finishes to give the cabin a contemporary, elegant feel.
The new car gets a larger 10.5-inch central touchscreen that benefits from voice control functionality. The old semi-digital instrument cluster has also been ditched in favour of a more-contemporary 12.3-inch full-screen setup. This can be customised via four different preset ‘themes’: Casual, Smart, Sport and Tough.
