NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2022
Toyota is freshening the Corolla lineup, adding a more powerful 2.0-liter hybridized engine and an awd option delivering added power and enhanced fuel economy to the subcompact. The brand will make its Toyota Multimedia System standard on all models and update safety and driver-assistance technology as part of the refresh, Toyota said, which includes styling and lighting changes to the Corolla's front fascia and rear deck.
NEXT STAGE: Addition in 2023
The GR Corolla Morizo Edition takes its name from Toyota boss Akio Toyoda's racetrack alias and packs dialed up torque, a slimmed down curb weight and an optimized gear ratio for souped-up performance.
Toyota bumped up torque to 295 pound-feet, from 273 pound-feet and took out nearly 100 pounds of weight — partly by removing the rear seats and rear wiper blade for a bit of extra racing cred. It also gets increased rigidity with two additional strut braces and two braces spanning the rear cabin.
The Morizo edition will be limited to a 200-unit production run in the first year. It will be made at the so-called GR Factory in Toyota's Motomachi assembly plant, a boutique small-batch operation where select workers essentially hand-build performance cars. It will be available in the U.S. in 2023.
