Toyota announced the Corolla GR Sport in the back of the sedan. The novelty will be the first model in the Toyota GR Sport range, presented in Eastern Europe.
The design of the sports version of the sedan is designed in the spirit of GAZOO Racing. Such a hatchback and station wagon Touring Sports debuted in February 2019. The company positions the sports family as cars for "young and enthusiastic customers".
Sports sedan differs from the basic model by the side mirror housings painted in black, grille, central poles, glass trim, roof spoiler and door sills. The sedan also received 17-inch ten-spoke wheels of special design, which will be replaced with similar 18-inch wheels for an additional fee. A spoiler, a "GR Sport" sticker and a black decorative stripe around the lights and above the plate number plate are installed aft on the edge of the trunk.
In the cabin there are sports seats with reinforced side support and built-in headrests, covered with black textiles and eco leather with decorative longitudinal white and red stitching. The steering wheel is finished with perforated leather, on door sills - aluminum pads with the "GR" logo, on the ceiling - black leather. The list of options includes LED optics, surrounding elephant lighting and a two-color body. There are eight shades to choose from, including the new Dynamic Grey corporate colour. Seven of these are available with black contrasting roofs.
Depending on the market, Corolla GR Sport sedans will be available with a 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 1.8-litre hybrid power unit.
I think we will get a great car for the younger generation, it will look stylish and sporty. Of course, the dynamic characteristics will not be at the level of sports cars, but for the city enough and a small expense due to the hybrid unit will be a nice bonus.
The beginning of serial production of the novelty is scheduled for November 2020.
