Two new Toy­ota Corol­la vari­ants make their world debuts at the 2019 Gene­va motor show -the Corol­la GR SPORT and the Corol­la TREK.

NEW COROLLA GR SPORT - The sec­ond mod­el to join Toyota’s Euro­pean GR SPORT range

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess­ful launch of the new Corol­la ear­li­er this year – praised for its dynam­ic look and engag­ing dri­ving capa­bil­i­ties – Toy­ota presents the Corol­la GR SPORT, a sporti­er vari­ant that injects some of the pas­sion of TOYOTA GAZOO Rac­ing. After the intro­duc­tion of the Yaris GR SPORT at last year’s Paris motor show, the Corol­la GR SPORT is the sec­ond mod­el to join Toyota’s Euro­pean GR SPORT range.

Avail­able on both Hatch­back & Tour­ing Sports mod­els and with a choice of 1.8 or 2.0 litre self-charg­ing hybrid pow­er­trains, the new GR SPORT grade takes the GAZOO Rac­ing spir­it to the heart of the Corol­la range; its unique, sport­ing design cues tar­get­ing younger and enthu­si­as­tic cus­tomer.

Build­ing on the mid or high grades, the GR SPORT fea­tures unique style ele­ments includ­ing a new front grille with dark chrome fin­ish and unique low­er skirts, side rock­ers and rear dif­fuser. The grade also adds bespoke 18″ machined alloy wheels, rear pri­va­cy glass, fog lamps, LED head­lamps and a ded­i­cat­ed exte­ri­or colour Dynam­ic Grey with bi-tone exe­cu­tion.

On board, the GR SPORT is equipped with mod­el-spe­cif­ic Sport seats in black fab­ric with leather-like bol­sters, which may be option­al­ly upgrad­ed to full leather uphol­stery. Addi­tion­al­ly it fea­tures black and red stitch on instru­ment pan­el, steer­ing wheel and shifter.

The Corol­la GR SPORT will be on sale from Jan­u­ary 2020.

NEW COROLLA TREK — Designed for active lifestyles and out­door pur­suits

Corol­la TREK, avail­able only on Tour­ing Sports mod­els with a choice of 1.8 or 2.0 litre self-charg­ing hybrid pow­er­trains, reflects the grow­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty of crossover-type, rugged look­ing vehi­cles with­in the Euro­pean C-seg­ment.

Designed to appeal to peo­ple who enjoy active lifestyles and out­door pur­suits, Corol­la TREK has sparked a col­lab­o­ra­tion between Toy­ota and Trek Bicy­cle. This part­ner­ship brings togeth­er two brands that have sim­i­lar envi­ron­men­tal val­ues to offer com­ple­men­tary mobil­i­ty solu­tions.

Found­ed in 1976, Trek Bicy­cle is one of the world’s most pop­u­lar bike brands cur­rent­ly sell­ing about 1.5 mil­lion bikes per annum glob­al­ly. In addi­tion to man­u­fac­tur­ing high per­for­mance cycling equip­ment, Trek uses the bicy­cle to break down the bar­ri­ers that pre­vent peo­ple from liv­ing hap­pi­er, health­i­er, more active lives.

Cement­ing their part­ner­ship, Toy­ota has signed an agree­ment with Trek, pro­vid­ing Corol­la TREK as sup­port vehi­cles for Trek-owned Trek-Segafre­do World Tour Men’s and Women’s’ Teams, dur­ing Euro­pean bike rac­ing events.

Tar­get­ing active lifestyle fam­i­lies with out­door hob­bies, the Corol­la TREK fea­tures a 20 mm rise in ride height for greater ground clear­ance. It builds on the Corol­la Tour­ing Sports mid grade with unique crossover style ele­ments includ­ing front and rear under­run, bespoke 17″ machined alloy wheels, rear pri­va­cy glass, fog lamps and LED head­lamps.

On board, the Corol­la TREK is equipped with a 7-inch TFT info­tain­ment screen, mod­el-spe­cif­ic, two-tone fab­ric seats and match­ing wood deco ele­ments.

The Corol­la TREK will be on sale from August 2019.
