Toyota has announced the debut date for the new, twelfth generation Corolla sedan. The model will be presented on November 16 at the Guangzhou Auto Show. The appearance of the car will overlap with the design of the hatchback of the same name, and the range of power plants will include “aspirated” and hybrids.
The Corolla Sedan will be built on the basis of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), as the latest generation Prius and Camry. According to rumors, depending on the market, the model will be equipped with hybrid power units based on 1.8 and 2.0 engines, their non-hybrid versions, as well as a two-liter “four” from the Dynamic Force Engine family, combined with a direct shift transmission Direct Shift-CVT.
According to preliminary information, the sedan will not get a 116-horsepower turbo engine of 1.2 liters. Such a unit is offered for Auris, which will be renamed Corolla after entering the market.
The Toyota Corolla hatchback, introduced in March, received a variable-speed drive that can imitate the workings of a 10-speed sequential gearbox. It is equipped with a sport mode and the world’s first “starting gear” – the classic gear-driven stage is used at the initial stage of acceleration from a standstill. The engine for the American market is one – with a volume of two liters with a combined injection, as well as a system of variable valve timing at the inlet and outlet.
