New models added to Corolla range

March 5, 2019

Toyota has revealed the first additions to its new Corolla range at the Geneva Motor Show – the new Corolla GR Sport and Corolla Trek.

The Corolla GR Sport is imbued with spirit of Toyota Gazoo Racing, further developing the model’s dynamic looks and driving capabilities. It will be the second model to join the European GR Sport line-up following the introduction of the Yaris GR Sport last year.

Both Hatchback and Touring Sports versions will be available, with a choice of 1.8 or 2.0-litre self-charging hybrid powertrains. The Toyota Gazoo Racing influence is witnessed in distinctive styling elements, including a new front grille with a dark chrome finish, lower skirts and sills and a rear diffuser. The GR Sport has dedicated 18-inch machined-finish alloy wheels, plus rear privacy glass, front fog lights, LED headlights and an exclusive Dynamic Grey bi-tone paint finish.

The cabin features sports seats in black cloth upholstery with leather-effect bolsters; full leather upholstery can be specified as an option. Black and red stitching adds a striking contrast on the instrument panel, steering wheel and shift lever.

The Corolla GR Sport will go on sale in Europe in January 2020. Details of UK availability and specifications will be announced later.

The Corolla Trek gives the Touring Sports model more rugged, crossover styling, designed to appeal to those who love outdoor pursuits. The Corolla Trek has also inspired a new collaboration between Toyota and Trek Bicycle, two brands that share similar environmental values and offer complementary mobility solutions.

Founded in 1976, Trek Bicycle is one of the world’s most popular cycle brands, selling around 1.5 million bikes a year. As well as manufacturing high-performance cycling equipment, Trek also uses the bicycle as a way of helping break down barriers that prevent people from living happier, healthier and more active lives.

Toyota has signed an agreement with Trek to provide Corolla Trek as support vehicles for the men’s and women’s teams competing in European events in the Trek-owned Trek-Segafredo World Tour.

The Corolla Trek will also be offered with the 1.8 or 2.0-litre self-charging hybrid powertrains. It benefits from a 20mm increase in ride height and features front and rear underruns, 17-inch machined alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, front fog lights and LED headlights.

Inside there is a seven-inch TFT infotainment screen, two-tone cloth upholstery and matching wood trim details.

Sales of the Corolla Trek will begin in August 2019 and, once again, details of UK availability will be announced nearer the on-sale date.
