Following the Hatchback and the Touring Sports, the Sedan is the third body type to join the 12th generation Corolla model line-up. Globally renowned, the Corolla has sold more than 46 million units in over 150 countries since its introduction in 1966. The new Sedan features the same wide and low stance inherent in the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-C platform.
The Sedan shares the same spacious, ergonomically excellent cabin as that of the Hatchback and Touring Sports, hallmarked by its high sensory quality and advanced technology. The Sedan also benefits from the same extended 2,700 mm wheelbase as the Touring Sports, ensuring ample legroom and high comfort levels for rear seat passengers.
The new premium quality interior include numerous comfort and convenience features such as wireless phone charging, and the intuitive, easy to use combination of an 8-inch multimedia touch screen, a 7-inch multi-information display and a 10-inch head-up display.
The new Corolla Sedan will be available with a choice of two powertrains. The 1.8 litre self-charging hybrid system develops 90 kW/122 DIN hp, responsive and self-sufficient EV technology with no need for plug-in recharging.
The improved 1.6 litre petrol engine combines responsiveness with efficiency. Available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT gearbox, it delivers a total output of 97 kW/132 DIN hp.
The new Toyota Safety Sense active safety package includes a Pre-Collision System (PCS) with pedestrian detection during both day and night time, and cyclists detection in daylight hours, a full range Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with steering assist, Road Sign Assist (RSA) and Automatic High Beam (AHB).
In addition, it introduces a new Lane Trace Assist (LTA) system for advanced driving support. When the full range ACC and LTA are active, the latter assists the driver in steering control with subtle inputs to keep the vehicle in the lane, even on gentle highway bends.
