The Japanese automaker has released an off-road version of Corolla Touring Sports Estate in partnership with a bicycle manufacturer, TREK.

The new Toyota Corolla, which received the TREK prefix in the name, is an off-road version of the sports Corolla Touring, created in partnership with the American bicycle manufacturer TREK. Toyota has already provided 16 copies of the car to the TREK-Segafredo World Tour cycling teams as auxiliary vehicles.

As we already wrote, the novelty was based on the version of Toyota Corolla Touring Sports, which received a unique set of 17-inch alloy wheels, durable black plastic lining, a radiator grille with a honeycomb structure, rear protective glass, new front fog lights and LED headlights. The Corolla TREK suspension has also been increased by 20 mm. Despite the increased suspension travel, all models have exclusively front-wheel drive.

The interior of the Corolla TREK has acquired a new two-tone fabric upholstery, an updated dashboard with decorative wooden inserts and TREK nameplates on the thresholds and the tailgate. Customers also get a 7-inch digital dashboard display, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, adaptive cruise control, a cyclist detection system and an automatic electric rear door.

Like other Corolla models, the TREK modification will be offered with a 1.8-liter or 2.0-liter four-cylinder hybrid powerplant. The first option has a power of 120 hp, and the second – 178 hp Both devices send their power to the front wheels via a robotic CVT transmission.

Toyota has not yet officially announced pricing information for the new Corolla TREK, but we expect prices to start at £ 29,000. The car is already available for order, and deliveries of cars to customers will begin before the end of the year.
