New Toyota COROLLA Touring GR Sport 2020 Review Interior Exterior.
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 which 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 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.
Following the successful launch of the new Corolla earlier this year – praised for its dynamic look and engaging driving capabilities – Toyota presents the Corolla GR SPORT, a sportier variant that injects some of the passion of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing. After the introduction of the Yaris GR SPORT at last year’s Paris motor show, the Corolla GR SPORT is the second model to join Toyota’s European GR SPORT range.
Available on both Hatchback & Touring Sports models and with a choice of 1.8 or 2.0 litre self-charging hybrid powertrains, the new GR SPORT grade takes the GAZOO Racing spirit to the heart of the Corolla range; its unique, sporting design cues targeting younger and enthusiastic customer.
Building on the mid or high grades, the GR SPORT features unique style elements including a new front grille with dark chrome finish and unique lower skirts, side rockers and rear diffuser. The grade also adds bespoke 18″ machined alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, fog lamps, LED headlamps and a dedicated exterior colour Dynamic Grey with bi-tone execution.
On board, the GR SPORT is equipped with model-specific Sport seats in black fabric with leather-like bolsters, which may be optionally upgraded to full leather upholstery. Additionally it features black and red stitch on instrument panel, steering wheel and shifter.
The Corolla GR SPORT will be on sale from January 2020.
