the sporty compact on the way

According to rumors, the range of the compact Toyota Corolla will soon be supplemented by a sports version GR supercharged.

Toyota has in its range a sports model family adorned with the “GR” badge (the initials of Gazoo Racing): we find the GR Supra coupe and the sporty city car GR Yaris, which will soon be joined by the new Toyota GR 86, replacing the GT86. According to rumors relayed by the Japanese site Carsensor, the compact Toyota Corolla could also benefit froma sportier version, called GR Corolla.

Toyota GR Corolla (2021): 300 horsepower under the hood

If the Japanese manufacturer has already done hard with its GR Yaris and its turbocharged three-cylinder developing 261 horsepower, the future Toyota GR Corolla would go even further and would push this mechanism to the power of 300 horsepower, transmitted to four-wheel drive via a six-speed manual transmission.

Although this GR-badged Corolla is more powerful than its little sister, its performance will be lower, with the model being lighter and less extreme than the GR Yaris. Exit the aluminum and PRFC (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) elements therefore, but this would make the GR Corolla more affordable from a budget standpoint. Indeed, Carsensor estimates that it should sell for between 3.5 and 4 million yen, or theequivalent of 26,700 to 30,500 euros.

If a silhouette five-door sedan should be preferred, the Japanese website also specifies thata station wagon version should also be there. In addition to its three-cylinder petrol, a powerful hybrid engine should appear later under the hood of the GR Corolla.

Toyota has not officially confirmed all this information, which therefore remains to be taken with a grain of salt …
