Toyota unveils new teaser image for the new Corolla sedan


Toyota has released a teaser image of the new Corolla sedan.

Toyota has unveiled a new teaser image of the new Corolla sedan ahead of its unveiling in mid-November 2018.

The image – which we’ve cleared up a bit for clarity – shows the headlights we’ve already seen on the Corolla’s hatch (which at the time of its reveal in Europe was still badged as the Auris). But the treatment of the badge on the twelfth-generation sedan is a little different here, as is the shape of the grille and fog lights.

As they will share the TNGA platform, the sedan’s powertrain options are expected to mirror those of the sedan, which in Europe is offered with a single conventional engine (in the form of the 1.2-liter turbo-gasoline that debuted in the C-HR) plus a choice of 2.0-liter hybrid powertrains in various tuning states.

A naturally aspirated 2.0-liter without the hybrid gubbins is also expected to be offered in some markets.

The Corolla sedan is expected to be unveiled in China at the Guangzhou International Auto Show on November 16. The hatchback (which has already been spotted locally), meanwhile, is expected to launch in South Africa in February 2019.
