We know you’re most concerned with power and performance with the GR Corolla, so that’s where we’re kicking things off with. Look under the hood and be met with a G16E-GTS turbochar-ed, direct/port-injected 3-cylinder engine. All of this power reaches 300 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque for a true racing experience.

All-Wheel Drive & Suspension

Stay in control thanks to the GR-FOUR all-wheel drive system and the sport-tuned suspension. The GR-FOUR AWD provides traction you can count on and control that keeps you in charge, allowing you to prioritize power to the wheels with a simple turn of the dial. On the suspension side of things, the front Macphersion type-strut and rear suspension in a double wishbone multilink style work to keep your ride stable yet agile to power through corners.

Exterior Design & Features

Made for Drivers

The GR Corolla was made by the best for the best. Made by both the Toyota GAZOO Racing World Rally Team and tested by WRC drivers, they decided to focus on a lightweight, aerodynamic look that puts performance as the key goal.

Hot Hatch Look

Not only is the GR Corolla fun to drive, but you might also find yourself enraptured by its sport-turned style. Built to steal attention from others, stand out with a black GR badged matrix grille that leads into a seamless hood, connecting to the tapered roof. The rear is highlighted by a wide track and a focus on its low stance that’s ready to perform at a moment’s notice.

Interior Design & Features

Racing Interior

The design team endeavoured to make the interior feel like a rally car as well, designed the cockpit to put power within reach of the driver at every turn. You’ll be met with a shift lever that has short shift trokes, as well as a convenient pull-type mechanical parking brake. The modern look is highlighted by bright displays and crisp trims.

Sport Seats

Few things will make you feel like you’re out on the track than controlling the vehicle from its standard heating sport seats. The driver seat is 6-way adjustable, with a 4-way adjustable seat for the front passenger. Experience GR Sport Fabric material on the Core Edition model, while the Circuit Edition provides a worthy upgrade with a GR Sport Suede material.
