New Corolla introduces more prestigious styling and high levels of safety equipment

• Update of the single most popular vehicle in Toyota’s line-up

• More prestigious exterior styling

• Toyota Safety Sense fitted as standard1 across the range

Currently sold in approximately 150 countries and regions around the world and accounting for around 20% of Toyota’s global sales, the Corolla remains the most popular vehicle in the company’s line-up. 

The updated Corolla model range now introduces a new and advanced exterior styling. The front has been completely restyled to highlight a wider vehicle stance and a more prestigious design. It incorporates Toyota's Under Priority and Keen Look design language featuring a small upper grille flanked by new LED headlamp clusters, including new LED light guides, and a revised front bumper incorporating a large lower grille. 

To the side, the door handles receive a new chrome trim finish, enhancing the character line running from the front to the rear of the vehicle. A choice of new 16" and 17" alloy wheel designs is available. 

Greater style is added to the rear through the adoption of new LED tail lamp clusters and a new chrome garnish which further emphasizes the vehicle width. 

The new Corolla is available in a choice of 9 body colours, of which 3 are new: Platinum Bronze, Tokyo Red and Earth Bronze. 

Fitted as standard1 across the entire model range, Toyota Safety Sense helps to prevent or mitigate collisions across a wide range of traffic situations by processing information provided by a compact, windscreen head-mounted unit housing both a laser and a camera. 

Toyota Safety Sense incorporates a Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Road Sign Assist (RSA) and Automatic High Beam (AHB). Thanks to the system reducing the risk of being involved in traffic accidents, drivers of the new Corolla may benefit from lower insurance costs[1] or more advantageous insurance reclassification1. The new Corolla goes on sale throughout Europe this summer.
