The Thai-made (Gateway plant) car is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine with outputs of 69 kW and 110 Nm. The Yaris ATIV was launched there in August. A hatchback body should follow. And as for the production cycle, that should be until 2027/2028 with a facelift in 2025.
Unusually, TMC took four years to facelift the current Corolla. Announced in June, the restyle is the main news for North America’s 2023 model year.
This C segment/Compact sedan, hatchback and estate series has proved to be a huge hit in both its main markets: China and the USA. Perhaps more surprisingly, it has also done very well in Europe, a hybrid powertrain being one of the reasons for that.
Toyota offers this model with gasoline, petrol-electric HEV and PHEV power and this should continue when the thirteenth generation is launched in 2026. China’s GAC and FAW joint ventures will again have their own models, replacements for the Corolla and Levin.
