The New Toyota Corolla Sedan Is Surprisingly Cool

16 November, 2018, 20:12 | Author: Regina Silva
  • The Hybrid models will be introduced in more than 90 countries

Toyota says it will be offered with "many of the features" of the hatch launched in August. The model's design concept is called 'Shooting Robust, ' which Toyota says emphasizes a lower stance and center of gravity.

As with other newer Toyotas, the new Corolla switches to the automaker's TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform along with featuring a more aggressive design language as seen with the new Prius and Camry.

On the TNGA platform, the new Corolla sedan sits 5mm wider and 10mm longer than the previous version, while being 20mm lower to the ground.

The new Toyota Corolla Sedan offers a combined 90kW of power from a four-cylinder petrol engine and two electric motor-generators, for claimed fuel use figures of just 4.2L/100km.

The two Corollas look different outside thanks to unique front and rear bumper designs.

'Move more, sit less,' government says in new exercise guidelines
With a few exceptions, the advice in the new guidelines is not so different from what we were told in the 2008 guidelines. The previous guidelines stated that only 10-minute bouts of physical activity counted toward meeting the guidelines.


As standard, the Corolla sedan comes equipped with a 4.2-inch thin film transistor (TFT) multi-info display (MID) in the instrument cluster, though there's a larger seven-inch MID available as an option.

The cabin has also been thoroughly reworked, with the US-spec model offering either a seven- or an eight-inch touchscreen. Fuel economy has yet to be announced, though Toyota does promise the 1.8-liter engine offers "better fuel efficiency" than before. Whether the auto we get in Australia will have the same snout, or whether we'll get a version with a nose adapted from the hatchback, remains to be seen. It also receives new MacPherson struts in the front, enhancing driving dynamics. In the US -spec version, for instance, customers will have the option to go for an upgraded version of the old model's 1.8-litre petrol engine and an all-new 2.0-litre Dynamic Force petrol engine, also based on TNGA.

In addition to the hybrid version, the Corolla Sedan will carry on with the 1.6-liter gasoline engine of its predecessor. The vehicle has features like Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, wireless charging and rear AC vents.

In terms of safety, the new Corolla sedan will get fitted with the Toyota Safety Sense package that not only alerts in the event of potential dangers but actually aids and supports in making the drive safer. 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). Apart from airbags and ABS, safety features include automatic high beam, road sign assist, pre-collision system, night time pedestrian detection, full range adaptive cruise control and lane trace assist. Impressively, buyers will be able to add wheels measuring up to 18 inches in diameter.

There's no mention of a hybrid powertrain in the official launch materials for the Corolla sedan but, given they're very similar under the skin, it'll likely be offered with the hatchback's electrified powertrain down the track. In Japan, sales of the new sedan and wagon models has also been slated for sometime within 2019.
