Toyota Corolla revealed, hybrid powertrain coming

2020 Toyota Corolla | Toyota

After following in the steps of the 2019 Corolla Hatchback, the new 2020 sedan uses the underpinnings of the Toyota New Global Architecture making the long-surviving vehicle even more sturdy and aggressive.

The twelfth-generation C-segment model has made its global debut at the Guangzhou Motor Show alongside a China-only Levin version, with the U.S. version also being announced simultaneously. The forthcoming Corolla sedan could be supplied to Maruti Suzuki under their latest deal to spawn a rebadged version in the near future. This is the global debut of new Toyota Corolla, which will soon be launched globally. A version of the model tailored for the Japanese market is expected to launch sometime within 2019. Front headlights are of the bi-beam LED variety, and LED rear lamps are standard across the model range, the type and style again varying by model grade, with sporty grades featuring smoked outer light lenses.

Interiors are seen based on a Sensuous Minimalism concept with a sleek instrument panel and interior layout that spells comfort, elegance and spaciousness. Inside, the automaker says that the cabin materials and elements in the new Corolla have been carefully selected for consistency and their aesthetic quality, with high-gloss materials paired with matte elements to accentuate a premium look and feel. Toyota also promises improved visibility from the driver's seat.

The 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan's has a clean and minimalistic interior.

Inside, the Corolla's new dashboard falls in line with the larger Camry and features either 7.0- or 8.0-inch touchscreens for infotainment with Apple CarPlay compatibility. The front MacPherson strut layout has also been totally revised for this platform, and newly-developed shock absorbers also make their way on to the auto.

Toyota will indeed be expanding the 2019 Corolla's footprint next year subsequently as it will be retailed in well over 150 nations.

The new Corolla also packs in a load of tech, including a host of collision avoidance and mitigation systems, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure assists with active steering and road sign recognition system that read road signs and displays the same in the MID to warn the driver.

For 2020, Toyota said the Valvematic engine is rated at 139 horsepower and pairs exclusively to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). We are looking at the elegantly designed "Prestige" variant, and there's a "Sporty" variant too, which, in China, is sold as a separate model (all-new Toyota Levin). Wheel sizes offered for the auto will range from 16- to 18-inch units.

The Corolla hybrid should complement the automaker's Prius and may take the place of the discontinued Prius C. And could prove to be a more effective counterpoint to the new Honda Insight hybrid sedan. Japan will get the all-new sedan and estate based on the Sporty variant, within the same year.
