Local dealers started placing orders for the new Corolla Touring the day before, April 2. This Corolla will appeal to those who prefer outdoor recreation to city entertainment.

Toyota has prepared the Corolla Touring station wagon in a special Active Ride version for the home market. The basis for the novelty was a station wagon equipped with a 170-horsepower atmospheric two-liter engine, working in conjunction with a variator. It simulates ten gears at once and allows you to switch to manual shift mode.

For every hundred kilometers a new station wagon spends about six liters of fuel. The body of the Corolla Touring Active Ride can be painted in a light green metallic paint called ‘Urban Khaki’. Before that, only the Toyota RAV4 crossover could try on such a shade. Black and white shades complement the palette. “Shoe” the station wagon in 17-inch alloy wheels, for which the manufacturer has chosen a dark shade.

There was a place on the roof for the roof rails, and sports chairs appeared in the Corolla’s cabin, whose upholstery has water-repellent properties. A bright orange space will cheer up travelers: it is on the armrest, steering wheel, door cards and seats.

And the station wagon is also equipped with a special system that disinfects the air in the cabin.

Additional equipment: bike mounts and brand nameplates with the name of the special series. The station wagon will be released in a limited edition of only 500 cars. All of them will not get out of Japan. One such Active Ride costs about 1.83 million rubles in our money. Recall that in our country you can only buy a Corolla sedan at a price of 1,467,000 rubles.

Earlier, AutoTimesNews said that the electric crossover BMW iX will receive a “charged” version. The novelty will get a 560-horsepower engine and a sports suspension.
