Toyota right on Trek with new Corolla

May 1, 2020

The new Toyota Corolla Trek brings the efficiency and green credentials of hybrid motoring to families who want a tougher vehicle to match their active lifestyle.

Aimed at those who enjoy the great outdoors, the new Corolla Trek adds a more rugged appearance and greater functionality to the spacious and efficient Touring Sports range.

The new model is the result of a collaboration between Toyota and Trek Bikes – a partnership that brings together two brands that share environmental values.

Externally, the new Corolla Trek is distinguished by a 20mm increase in ride height for improved ground clearance, as well as protective wheel arch cladding and under-runs front and rear. Additional features include a honeycomb grille, bespoke 17-inch machined alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, fog lamps, LED headlamps and Trek logos in the door steps and tailgate.

On board, the new Corolla Trek features two-tone textile upholstery coordinated with decorative wood-finish elements of the dashboard.

This supplements an impressive standard equipment list, which includes a seven-inch colour TFT display in the instrument cluster, the latest version of the Toyota Safety Sense suite of safety and protection systems, and an eight-inch TFT infotainment screen which supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The package is designed to add to the Corolla Touring Sports’ already enviable load space, comfort and equipment by giving the new editions the ability to take customers wherever their outdoor hobby, sport or pass-time requires.

Customers can also choose from two engines, as Corolla Trek joins the list of hybrids Toyota offers with the choice of a higher-powered engine and different tuning for a sportier driving experience.

The car is available with the efficient 1.8 VVTi petrol-hybrid motor which gives 122 DIN hp, or the new 2.0 version, delivering 184 DIN hp. The two engines produce 113g/km and 121g/km CO2 (WLTP) respectively, and 25 per cent and 27 per cent BIK taxation. Both are rated for VED at £165 pa.

In 1.8 guise the Corolla Trek starts at £29,225 on the road, with the 2.0 option priced from £30,950.

In keeping with Trek’s heritage as a cycle racing team, as well as manufacturing brand, a fleet of 16 Corolla Trek models was already being used to support the Trek-Segafredo World Tour teams during their European events this season prior to racing being postponed.

The new Corolla Trek will continue to be built at Toyota’s plant at Burnaston, Derbyshire, UK, when manufacturing resumes.
