Guangzhou 2018: Toyota Debuts All-New Corolla Sedan

2020 Toyota Corolla | Toyota

Corolla will be available with two types of engines, 1.8 liter self-charging hybrid and 1.6 liter petrol. Hybrid models will be newly introduced in more than 90 countries and regions, playing a key role in the widespread adoption of electrified vehicles.

The sedan's exterior design is based along "shooting robust" lines, which the automaker says presents a sporty silhouette, complemented by a lower stance and wider tread than its predecessor. "The US spec models will get a 7" touchscreen with higher variants will be seen with an 8" display.

At China's Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition, Toyota unveiled a redesigned Corolla sedan, making the world's best-selling vehicle more connected and efficient than ever before.

The last vestiges of the Scion brand are leaving us: Toyota has replaced the 2018 Corolla iM with the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback, and the Yaris iA can not be far behind.

Toyota is still selling the outgoing Corolla sedan in Australia alongside the new-gen hatchback.

China says high-level trade talks with US have resumed
The Trump administration hiked tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese goods over complaints Beijing steals or pressures foreign companies to hand over technology as the price of market access.

The 2019 Corolla Sedan shares its 2,700mm (106.3in) wheelbase with the wagon version, resulting in a spacious cabin with "ample legroom and high comfort levels for rear seat passengers".

More specifically, the engine lineup includes a hybrid, a first for the Corolla Sedan in Europe.

Toyota says that compared with the previous version, the instrument panel, cowl, hood and beltline height are lower to increase visibility and create the interior's open feel. The cabin is also said to be quieter, owing to extensive use of sound-deadening materials. For the USA market, the new Corolla carries forward the 1.8-litre petrol engine offered in its predecessor, though with a change in tuning. 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. Track width, however, is up by 0.5 and 0.9 inches at the front and rear, respectively, while a multi-link rear suspension replaces the torsion beam of today's Corolla.

There's also a host of electronic driver aids including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control. The American Corolla sedan will also come with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 fitted as standard. 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).

The 2019 Corolla Sedan will expand Toyota's Corolla lineup in Europe to three body styles, adding to the existing Hatchback and Touring Sports. A version of the model tailored for the Japanese market is expected to launch sometime within 2019.
