TORONTO, ON – Nov 15, 2018 – With some-more than 45 million Toyota Corollas sole globally given a introduction in 1966, it would be formidable to find a motorist who did not commend a name. Everyone, it seems, has a Corolla story. Many, nonetheless are going to be doing double takes when they see a re-imagined and reconfigured 2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan. And that’s accurately a point.

The 12th-generation Toyota Corolla done a attainment in dual chapters: a all-new Corolla Hatchback arrived progressing this year, and now comes a best-selling Corolla physique style, a sedan. Both are formed on a Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), that is distant some-more than a new physique structure, also bringing together new approaches to engineering, design, assembly, and materials.

TNGA transforms both Corolla styles into drivers’ delights while also bolstering a model’s eminent value and reliability. Both pull from a same DNA and share powertrains. It’s no surprise, then, that a 2020 Corolla Sedan dramatically elevates this model’s concentration on comfort and excellence while also infusing it with a Corolla Hatchback’s feisty personality.

The Corolla sedan’s confidant new demeanour is a ideal thoughtfulness of a bumper-to-bumper, wheels-to-roof mutation that has taken place. The TNGA tallness means an accessible engine that produces some-more appetite than a prototype nonetheless delivers softened fuel efficiency. TNGA imbues a Corolla sedan with incomparable agility, nonetheless also with a smoothest, quietest ride. TNGA also means an towering feeling of peculiarity in each surface, switch and control a motorist sees and touches. And, critically, TNGA delivers on Toyota’s joining to motorist and newcomer reserve with a Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 apartment of active reserve systems – customary on each Corolla sedan model.

Design Transformation

Toyota shook adult a midsize sedan ranks with a new-generation Camry, and now a compress sedan shred is in for a jar with a 2020 Corolla sedan. From each angle, a new Corolla looks revoke and leaner, tauter and tighter. Powerful buffer flares and easily winding buffer tip surfaces accent a sculpted, jaunty core.

The settlement group called a operative judgment “Shooting Robust,” since they were sharpened for a robust, confidence-inspiring stance. Yet, they had to say plenty space for practical, real-world use. That’s because people buy sedans, after all.

The 2020 Corolla sedan rides on a 2,700 mm wheelbase, like a predecessor, nonetheless any commonality ends there. Corolla’s energetic opening and position advantage severely from wider front (+11 mm.) and back (+22 mm) line dimensions. The front overhang was condensed by 33 mm, and a back overhang extended by some-more than 15 mm. Height was reduced 20 mm, and a hood lowered 35 mm. for softened brazen visibility, done probable by ascent a engine lower. Those changes, and many others, revoke a centre of sobriety by 20 mm. – a poignant amount, as any racecar operative can attest. That’s usually one partial of a mutation that has incited a Corolla sedan into a rarely nimble, enchanting appurtenance to drive.

The confidant front fascia sum change by indication grade, with a SE and XSE putting on a sportiest face, including a body-color chin spoiler and aero stabilizing fins to stress a far-reaching stance. The slim, J-shaped Bi-Beam LED headlamps hang deeply into a front fenders and give a Corolla sedan a steely glance and a graphic night signature. The sporty SE and XSE grades use triple J-shaped clearway lamps with LED light guides along with LED spin signals, formulating a singular settlement signature.

The back leaves a graphic lighting clarity as well, with slight multiple lamps that hang deeply into a fenders. All 2020 Corolla sedan models use LEDs, a form and impression varying by indication grade. The sporty grades underline smoked outdoor light lenses.

What softened approach to showcase a Corolla’s thespian new sheetmetal than with a thespian new color? The new paint is a rarely shimmering Celestite Grey Metallic. The rest of a palette includes Blizzard Pearl, Super White, Classic Silver Metallic, Black Sand Pearl, Barcelona Red, Blue Crush Metallic and Dark Blue Metallic.

Big Wheels Keep on Turning

The Corolla sedan mutation continues where a rubber meets a road. For a initial time, 18-inch wheels are on a menu, accessible on a SE and XSE grades. These multi-spoke alloys get their good looks from a formidable machining technique interconnected with low surfacing and dim accents. The LE class rides on 16-inch steel wheels with covers. The XLE class gets new 16-inch amalgamate wheels with three-dimensional disfigured spokes.

Cabin Fever

Simple. Warm. Inviting. Sensuous. These descriptors, clearly from a oppulance automobile realm, desirous designers’ efforts when visualizing Corolla sedan’s cabin. The outcome is called “Sensuous Minimalism.” It’s equal tools sporty and elegant, and, as always, Corolla-comfortable and durable.

A neat instrument row lends an open, agreeable feeling interjection to a slimmer top surface, with impression lines that interlock with a doorway trim to communicate an ethereal atmosphere. At a centre of a instrument panel, within easy perspective for a motorist and front passenger, sits a high-resolution 8-inch multimedia touchscreen for a customary Entune 3.0 multimedia complement on all grades solely a L grade, that gets a 7-inch multimedia touchscreen.

The centre smoke-stack shade provides entrance to car settings, audio controls, navigation, and Entune 3.0 apps. Climate controls, located next a multimedia portal, are fashioned in a bright, rarely manifest digitized configuration. The centre smoke-stack flows into a wider console, with an armrest that’s scarcely 20 mm longer than in a prior model, for incomparable comfort.

The cockpit provides an enchanting interior space that surrounds a motorist while charity a atmospheric sourroundings for all passengers. Compared to a prior Corolla, a instrument panel, cowl, hood and beltline tallness are all lowered to boost prominence and emanate a interior’s open feel.

High-gloss materials are interconnected with matte elements – china accents with piano black and accessible resisting stitching – to intensify a reward demeanour and feel. Minimized gaps between buttons and switches, along with a rejecting of nonessential lettering on switchgear, adds to a high-class ambience. Consistency in all materials’ and elements’ shape, color, grain, and shimmer maximize smoothness and cultured quality.

Available ambient lighting illuminates a front doorway trim, console tray and front cupholder. The tray can reason tiny equipment such as a smartphone or wallet, or, when so equipped, houses a discretionary Qi wireless device charging pad. Terraced crater holders adjust to various-sized libation containers.

Digital Tools

The Corolla comes customary with a 4.2-inch skinny film transistor (TFT) Multi-Information Display (MID), with an accessible 7-inch MID located between a high-grade tachometer and speedometer. With a incomparable display, a motorist can switch between analog and digital speedometer styles.

Featuring abounding graphics, a easy-to-read MID can be tradition configured by a motorist and offers discerning operation to entrance information for a audio and multimedia systems, navigation system, car information including fuel potency and tire pressure, a Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), and other critical parameters and complement settings.

Front Row Seating

From behind a wheel, a 2020 Corolla sedan feels utterly opposite than a predecessor. Positioning a driver’s hip prove 25 mm revoke and 40 mm serve rearward yields an optimized pushing position. The outcome not usually improves comfort, though also helps to revoke a vehicle’s centre of sobriety and improves front/rear weight distribution.

These changes, along with a reconfigured revoke beltline, slimmer instrument panel, slimmer A-pillars, and repositioned side perspective mirrors, outcome in some-more expanded external visibility.

The front seats of a XSE and SE grades entrance a new settlement featuring a singular figure with a headrest that nestles into a shoulder area, while a XLE and LE grades offer a seatback with a new U-shaped pattern. This vital depart from a required block seatback settlement creates a clarity of youthful, sporty interest while improving comfort. The SE and XSE grades’ front seats offer thin, nonetheless extended shoulder supports, evocative of a foe bucket seat, that overlie plain and thick side bolsters to grasp extended holding performance.

Seating materials embody customary cloth or, in aloft grades, SofTex™. New interior tone schemes embody several distinguished two-tone accents. Choices embody Blue/Black (black as a categorical tone with blue highlights), Moonstone (light gray as a categorical tone with dim gray highlights) and new Macadamia (a warm, mouth-watering cream color).

Lots of Room, Not Noise

The Corolla sedan competence mangle tradition in a styling department, though it keeps to Toyota tradition when it comes to newcomer room and comfort. The back chair area retains glorious headroom, notwithstanding a revoke roofline. Legroom is also plentiful, fulfilling a simple goal of sedans.

What we don’t get in a 2020 Corolla is noise. Powertrain and highway sound have been culled interjection to revised drivetrain efficiencies, and a widespread doing of sound-absorbing materials, including Thinsulate®, sealants, foams, and silencers. The TNGA structure utilizes additional seals in a physique row gaps to isolate sound invasion and raise air-sealing performance. As one example, a building silencer pad is now one vast piece, instead of many smaller elements. The middle and outdoor lurch silencers are thicker. Combine all that with Corolla’s quieter powertrain, and it’s one willing ride.

Cooler Where It Counts

Corolla sedan’s wholly redesigned atmosphere conditioning complement is some-more compact, some-more fit and some-more effective. One instance of a smarter meridian control is a innovative twin-layer recirculation/fresh atmosphere initiation unit: In cold climates, it will automatically send dehumidified uninformed atmosphere to a top cabin to revoke potion fogging while compelling recirculation of gentle cabin atmosphere in revoke areas.

System controls, located next a multimedia portal, are fashioned in a bright, highly-visible digitized configuration. The meridian control interface comforts a piano black credentials with satin and china accents for a premium, high-quality demeanour and feel.

Multi-choice Multimedia

The 2020 Corolla sedan comes prepared to span with a driver’s digital life. The customary Entune 3.0 Audio includes an accessible 8-in. touchscreen display; 6 speakers; Apple CarPlay compatibility; Entune 3.0 App Suite Connect; Safety Connect; Scout GPS Link Compatible; Siri Eyes Free; auxiliary audio jack and USB 2.0 pier with iPod connectivity and control; AM/FM; MP3/WMA playback capability; hands-free phone capability; voice approval and song streaming around Bluetooth; customizable home screen; and weather/traffic info around Entune 3.0 App Suite.

The LE and SE grades get Entune 3.0 Audio with an 8-inch hold shade and 2 USB ports.

Entune 3.0 Audio Plus, customary on XSE, XLE and discretionary on SE CVT, adds an HD Radio and Weather/Traffic info; SiriusXM with Cache Radio; Entune 3.0 Connected Services; Service Connect, and Remote Connect.

Also accessible on a SE CVT is Entune 3.0 Audio Plus with JBL.

Topping a operation is Entune 3.0 Audio Premium that’s discretionary on XSE and XLE. The package includes a JBL nine-speaker, 800-watt complement with Clari-Fi; Dynamic Voice Recognition; Dynamic Navigation; Dynamic Points of Interest Search; and Destination Assist Connect.

JBL Audio complement highlights include:

  • Next-Generation HID8 amplifier creates 800-watts of sum power

Dynamic Force is with You

The 2020 Corolla sedan L, LE, and XLE grades will use a 1.8-litre engine (2ZR-FAE) found in a prior generation, nonetheless with some-more horsepower and softened fuel efficiency. The XSE and SE grades are powered by a completely-new 2.0-litre Dynamic-Force direct-injection inline four-cylinder engine (M20A-FKS). This new engine delivers some-more opening and regulating reduction fuel. Remarkably, a new Corolla engine is physically smaller and lighter, assisting to revoke a car’s centre of sobriety and urge a altogether balance.

Here are some of a tech pieces on Corolla sedan’s new accessible engine:

The new Dynamic Force engine gets it high appetite and potency from a multiple of high focus ratio (13:1), Toyota D4-S fuel injection mixing approach and delegate pier injectors, high-speed combustion, VVT-iE intelligent non-static valve-timing on a intake side and VVT-i on a exhaust. VVT-iE uses an electric engine instead of oil vigour to control a non-static valve timing.

A two-discharge pier oil siphon and a non-static cooling complement with electric H2O siphon assistance maximize engine opening and efficiency. The some-more fit cooling complement also ensures quicker cabin heating on cold days and quicker cool-down when a atmosphere conditioner is used.

All of those technologies, along with ultra-low inner friction, produce a limit thermal potency of 40 percent, among a top in a universe for a newcomer car engine. You can’t feel thermal efficiency, though we can feel a effects of 169 rise horsepower during 6,600 rpm and 151 lb-ft rise torque during 4,800 rpm.

Shifting Smarter

Sedan customer trends are shifting, and a 2020 Corolla sedan is right there with them. The new Direct-Shift CVT (continuously non-static transmission) combines a smooth, fuel-efficient opening of a CVT with a some-more approach pushing feel of a normal geared automatic. The pivotal to a graphic opening feel is a earthy initial rigging used for start-off acceleration, before handing off to a CVT’s pulley system. Because a launch rigging is doing a aloft submit bucket during launch, a stretch of a CVT’s belt and pulley components could be reduced, agreeable changeable speeds that are 20 percent faster than in a required CVT.

High-speed, high-response gear-shifting technology, regulating a multiplate soppy clutch, switches appetite from a gearset to a CVT’s belt and pulleys. The Direct Shift CVT has unnatural 10-speed Sequential Shiftmatic stairs along with Sport Mode. Synchronization of a augmenting engine revs and car speed gives a linear acceleration feel.

For those who wish to change for themselves, a 2020 Corolla sedan offers an intriguing choice with a all-new 6-speed iMT (intelligent primer transmission). Like some reward sports cars, it comforts downshift rev-matching control, automatically detecting when a motorist is changeable and fast rev-matching to make any motorist a stick-shift pro.

New control proof improves acceleration feel when starting off, and softened change feel creates this a hang change we wish to use. Increased use of micro polishing on rigging teeth reduces cabin noise. Standard Hill-start Assist Control (also on a CVT models), helps forestall a dreaded roll-back when starting off on an incline.

Platform: The Strong, Silent Type

A super-rigid structure, revoke centre of sobriety and rarely polished cessation tuning award a Corolla sedan with indication doing lively and float comfort, along with a particular pushing personality. This high-strength tallness is fortified by a increasing use of ultra-high-tensile steel as good as a focus of new constructional glue record for extended physique acerbity and passenger safety. Specifically, torsional acerbity is softened by 60 percent compared to a predecessor.

The new physique uses a totally new multi-load trail front structure to catch frontal collision impact army and disperses collision appetite to assistance forestall deformation of a passenger compartment. High-tensile steel in a rocker row reinforcements and a top flog panel; wider underbody side members; strengthened back fender reinforcements, and thicker dashboard panel, building panels, and underbody hovel all urge appetite apportionment in a eventuality of a collision.

A squared figure-of-eight reinforced spherical structure around a doorway openings, along with larger-diameter impact beams for a front and back doors, are designed to assistance in a eventuality of a side collision.

Sport Sedan Handling, Sedan Comfort

The 2020 Corolla sedan looks a partial of a fun-to-drive competition sedan, and a framework delivers on a promise. The multi-link eccentric back cessation is a vital allege over a torsion lamp setup used in a prior model, some-more skilful during absolutely interesting bumps while also ratcheting adult agility.

The MacPherson strut front suspension, totally revised for this platform, uses worldly techniques, including a strut temperament mounted coaxially with a kingpin axis. This underline allows smoother ceiling cessation travel, generally while traversing bumps, ensuing in some-more gentle steering feel.

Overall, front and back cessation attrition has been reduced by 40 percent. Newly grown startle absorbers have been tuned to produce optimal damping force for energetic doing and fortitude with indication float comfort.

Foundation for Safety

The 2020 Corolla sedan comforts 8 customary airbags and Toyota’s Star Safety System, that includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, Anti-lock Braking System, and Smart Stop Technology. All Corolla models come versed with a customary backup camera.

Toyota Safety Sense 2.0

Significantly, all 2020 Toyota Corolla models are versed as customary with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0, an modernized apartment of integrated active and pre-collision reserve features.

PCS (Pre-Collision System): Uses both a millimeter call radar sensor and a forward-facing camera sensor for rarely accurate showing of objects such as a vehicle, a walking or a cyclist in front of a vehicle. If a PCS determines there is a high luck of a collision, or if it deems a collision is unavoidable, a complement is designed to automatically activate a brakes to assistance equivocate a collision wholly or lessen a impact force.

DRCC (Dynamic Radar Cruise Control): Designed for highway use, has a vehicle-to-vehicle stretch control mode that utilizes a millimeter call radar sensor and camera sensor to say a pre-set follow stretch from a preceding vehicle. The Full-speed DRCC version, customary on CVT models, is also able of low-speed following, including stop-and-go traffic. The Corolla is designed to stop when a car forward comes to a stop, progressing an suitable stretch to it. The motorist enjoys some-more loose pushing in situations that can be irritating and fatiguing, while also gaining a magnitude of safety.

LDA (Lane Departure Alert) with Steer Assist: Provides a motorist with heard and visible warnings (vehicle positioning warning picture shown in a Multi-Information Display) and, if necessary, is designed to produce steering assistance if it determines a probability of flaw from a pushing lane. It is also designed to detects car lean (excess weaving within a pushing lane) that competence prove motorist distraction, oversight or drowsiness.

LTA (Lane Tracing Assist): LTA, customary on CVT models, is enabled when LDA and DRCC are both on and active. LTA employs a line centering duty that is designed to make consistent steering inputs to assistance a motorist keep a car in a centre of a lane. LTA is designed for uses on comparatively true highways to preemptively equivocate neglected line departures and revoke motorist fatigue.

AHB (Automatic High Beam): When enabled, a AHB complement uses an in-vehicle camera to assistance detect a headlights of coming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, afterwards automatically switches between high and low beams as appropriate.

Blind Spot Monitor is a customary or discretionary feature, depending on indication grade. When an coming car is detected, a complement is designed to warning a motorist regulating indicators on a outward mirrors.

Brake Hold, when engaged, is a available record that helps revoke motorist effort while watchful during a trade light or while pushing in traffic. When a motorist depresses a accelerator pedal, Brake Hold releases.
