Toyota GAZOO Racing (hereinafter referred to as TGR) made its world premiere on April 1, 2022 and released the brand's latest model "GR Corolla". The current GR model is the fourth model after the "GR Supra", "GR Yaris" and "GR86". It's currently the only five-door GR model (other than the GR Sport, etc.).
Based on the GR Corolla and Corolla Sport, a wide tread design of 60mm in the front and 85mm in the rear improves high-speed rotation performance.
The design features are eye-catching designs such as an angular front grille, a hood with two air intakes, a forged carbon fiber roof, and front fenders. The LED shape of the headlights is not inherited from the Corolla Sport, but instead adopts a special design.
From the side, you can see the 18-inch Multi Spoke wheel frame with black paint, the red brake calipers with GR Logo, and the side sill assist pedals with "GR-FOUR" embossing. It was originally predicted to be a 2-door model, but it turned out to be a 4-door model.
I thought that the rear of the car would not change as much as the front, but in addition to the three mufflers in the center and left and right, a car spoiler was also installed, giving a very aggressive impression.
The mention of three mufflers brings to mind Honda's new Civic Type R coming this fall. Also looking forward to the competition between these two cars in the future.
Toyota says the GR Corolla is a sporty and practical model with seating for five people and a large display screen in the center of the instrument panel.
The seat leather is made of ultrasuede and synthetic leather, and the headrests are equipped with the GR logo. The latest preventive safety package "Toyota Safety Sense" is also standard. Take into account the safety and security of daily driving and the pleasure of running as a sports car.
The powertrain of the GR Corolla is the same as that of the GR Yaris, equipped with a 1.6L inline 3-cylinder turbo engine "G16E-GTS" and a 6-speed manual transmission. The maximum output power is about 304PS, and the maximum torque is about 370N m. In addition to the "GR-FOUR" four-wheel drive system, a torque sensor (torque-sensing limited-slip differential) is also installed at the front and rear.
The GR Corolla is rumored to be available in the second half of 2022 in September. The Corolla series will undergo some facelifts in September, so it may be put on the market at the same time. But there is no definite information yet.
