The all-new Corolla showcases a more dynamic design, which differentiates between the sporting, compact Hatchback and the sleek, versatile Touring Sports more strongly than ever before. With a brand new 2.0-litre self-charging hybrid powertrain joining the engine line-up, the new 2018 Corolla model range also marks the debut of Toyota’s dual hybrid strategy.
In fact, all core models will now be available with a choice of two hybrid powertrains. On the one hand, a 122hp, 1.8-litre engine offering all the fourth generation hybrid system’s strengths, including improved response and linearity, and the traditional benefits of fuel efficiency and a relaxing drive. On the other hand, a 180hp, 2.0-litre engine, matching these strengths with greater power on demand, effortless acceleration and more dynamic, ‘fun to drive’ characteristics.
The new Corolla range’s TNGA GA-C platform guarantees a more rewarding driving experience thanks to a centre of gravity that is lowered by 10mm, multi-link rear suspension fitted as a standard across the model range, and a 60% more rigid body shell through the use of high-strength steel as reinforcement in key areas.
