In Santa Monica (California, USA), the world premiere of the new, 11-th in a row generation 2018-2019 Toyota Corolla in the version for the US market.
Outside the compact sedan is largely inspired by the concept Furia, which we saw in Detroit, as well as the new 2018-2019 Toyota Avalon.
Other than “youth”, this design can not be called.
The combination of black air intake grilles and abundant chrome decor creates a bright, catchy impression that supports two-tone color scheme wheels.
This “Corolla” will not be lost in traffic, day or night, so that many will contribute LED -fary now included as standard.
Sturdily built, “muscular” body with short overhangs became 9.9 cm longer, and they are all within the wheelbase – good news for the passengers!
The interior of the new Corolla also largely borrowed from the Avalon, which means greater reliability and luxury.
The basic configuration is now present Bluetooth, electric mirrors and all windows and a special pollen filter in the air conditioner for passengers with allergies.
In addition, the 2018-2019 Toyota promises that the sound insulation of interior has become much better.
There are news in the engine division: a new 1.8-liter all-aluminum four-cylinder engine produces 132 hp
or 140 hp
a timing adjustment system Valvematic, also reduces fuel consumption by 5%.
In the US, customers will be offered for three transmissions: 6 -speed mechanical, 4 -speed automatic transmission (rather archaic, in our opinion) and CVT with seven conventional “speed” to sort that can be using the shift paddles.
Start worldwide sales of 2018-2019 Toyota Corolla 2014 model year will be held in the next 1-2 months.
And we still remember that the most popular modern car in the world (over 39 million copies sold from 1966 to 2012) were collected at 16 factories and sold in 154 countries around the world.
In Russia, the current generation of the sedan with a completely different European appearance costs of 607 000 rubles.
