Toyota Levin 2018-2019 – Corral from GAC-Toyota for China


The new models of Toyota 2018-2019 replenished with the updated sedan Toyota Levin presented in the April Shanghai Auto Show. In our review, the restyling version of the Toyota Corolla Levin with photo, price, specifications and specifications of the four-door sedan from the Chinese manufacturer Guangzhou Auto Corporation (GAC-Toyota). The novelty is intended for sale exclusively in the automobile market of China and is equipped with gasoline engines – 1.2 Turbo (116 hp) and atmospheric 1.8-liter (140 hp). Price Toyota Levin 2017 in China is 120,000-160000 yuan (1005-1340 thousand).

I would like to note right away that Toyota Levin is one of two versions of the Toyota Corolla 11 generation for the Chinese market. The Toyota Levin sedan is manufactured at the joint venture GAC-Toyota in Guangzhou (based on the Toyota Corolla sedan for the US market). But produced by the efforts of the company FAW-Toyota sedan Toyota Corrol comes from the European version of the Toyota Corolla .

Toyota Levin, by the way, is offered in the Middle Kingdom from the summer of 2014. And now, almost three years later, the sedan went through a planned restyling, the main asset of which can safely be considered the appearance of a turbocharged petrol 1,2-liter D-4T engine (model 9NR-FTS). In China, the novelty is called the Toyota Levin 185T (the figures speak for the maximum torque of the turbocharged engine). This engine is also installed under the hood of the Toyota Auris hatchback and the Toyota Auris Touring Sports wagon . To the motor we will return in the section of technical characteristics, and to begin with we will estimate the body design and the design of the Salon sedan Levin.


The body of the car looks dynamic, sporty and venturesome. In the presence of narrowed headlights with graceful bends of LED daytime running lights, a narrow slot of the falshradiator grille, a huge mouth of the air intake located on a powerful bumper, supplemented with round fog lights and a lot of chrome parts.

Side of the body of the Toyota Levin does not look as harmonious as a five-door hatchback Auris. Especially spoil the picture of a small 15-inch wheels with a fresh design of light alloy wheels.



The Japanese sedan for the Chinese consumer was good for the fame of the Japanese sedan: large and solid lights in the side lights with LED filling, a neat trunk lid decorated with a wide chrome insert, a solid bumper with magnificent shapes.

  • The exterior dimensions of the body of the Toyota Levin 2018-2019 are 4630 mm in length, 1775 mm in width, 1485 mm in height, with 2700 mm of wheelbase.
  • Standard sedan is equipped with 15-inch wheels with 195/65 R15 tires, as an option, larger 16-inch wheels with 205/55 R16 rubber are offered (they are standardly installed on a sedan with a 1.8-liter engine).

Salon Toyota Levin got from the American version of the Toyota Corolla 11 generation. And its most budgetary version with an old-fashioned instrument panel (three radii, a miniature screen of the on-board computer) and an archaic control unit for air conditioning. However, the central console displays the latest multimedia system Toyota Touch 2 with 8-inch color touch screen (Bluetooth, navigation, Baidu CarLife).

A cozy cabin comfortably accommodates the driver and four passengers. Front seats despite the apparent simplicity are very convenient (anatomical profile of the back, solid side support). The luggage compartment can accept about 450 liters of luggage. If desired, it is possible to significantly increase the useful volume of the luggage compartment by adding a separate back of the rear row of seats.

Already in the basic configuration, the Toyota Levin sedan is equipped with front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger, ABS with BA and EBD, VSC and TRC, the NAS system (helper at the start of the hill), the keyless entry system and the engine activation button, air conditioning , A regular audio system (radio, CD, MP3, WMA, AUX and USB ports) with 4 speakers, two 12 V sockets, electric windows and mirrors with electric drive.

With the increase in the level of equipment, leather trim of seats, climate control, a modern multimedia complex with an 8-inch display, side curtains of safety in the first and second rows, rear parking sensors, an electric hatch, a multifunction steering wheel, electric front seats will be added.
