The new generation of the world’s best-selling car is on its way and it should come next year, as 2020 Toyota Corolla. News about this model is always interesting. Simply, the company always put a great effort on its most popular models. Since this is the most important model for the Japanese giant, it is not wondering that all reporters are doing their best to gain as more as possible new details about the upcoming redesign. So far, we know several things about the new model.
The test mule has been spotted on the roads in Europe. However, it is still completely camouflaged. So, we can’t say something more about its visual appearance. On the other side, we can find many reports that suggest new 2020 Corolla will ride on the company’s new TNGA platform, which is already in use for several models of the world’s No.1 car brand.
2020 Toyota Corolla redesign
This is the world’s best-selling car in the world. Also, it is the most important model for the company. So, it is not strange that Toyota’s engineers are giving their best to keep the current state. For that goal, the company will introduce many novelties. The 12th generation of this compact car will adopt the new TNGA platform.
This highly-modular architecture is already in use for several models in Toyota’s lineup. Those are cars like new Camry, Prius, C-HR etc. Compared to the current generation’s architecture, it will bring many benefits. Besides expected weight savings, we are also about to see a little bit longer wheelbase. Together with a more efficient use of space, it will provide more room and better overall comfort for the passengers. Also, the new 2020 Toyota Corolla is about to get a completely new styling.
2020 Toyota Corolla styling
There are big expectations from the upcoming 12th generation of the iconic car. It should come better in all aspects. Naturally, this includes exterior look as well. The testing model is on the road already. However, it still wears a camouflage, so it is hard to say something more precise. However, we are pretty sure that the company will not change the winning formula. So, don’t expect some radical turnaround. We are about to see the model’s familiar design philosophy, but adapted to the brand’s latest design language. This means that the 2020 Toyota Corolla will adopt the Camry’s “Keen Look” design language at the front. The rear end should feature taillights unified by a single LED strip running across the boot.
Details about the interior are yet to come. Though, we presume that the new model will adopt many design solutions from the Camry as well.
2020 Toyota Corolla engines
When it comes to powertrain, we expect to see some novelties too. Most likely, the base model will continue with a familiar 132-hp 1.8-liter engine. However, we should see some increase in terms of power. Also, we are expecting to see new 1.2- and 1.5-liter turbo engines in the offer, as well as hybrid model.
Finally, various reports claim the new 2020 Toyota Corolla will also come with some of BMW’s engines. This powertrain will be in use for some of the top-range models, or we could even see a hi-performance version.
2020 Toyota Corolla release date and price
The 2020 Toyota Corolla will come somewhere in the next year. When it comes to price, we don’t expect bigger changes compared to the current-generation model, which starts under 20.000 dollars.
Although this sedan is the segment’s leader, there are many serious competitors, such as Honda Civic, Mazda 3, VW Golf and others.
