Sleek and Powerful Configuration:

Under its hood, the 2024 GR Corolla boasts a turbocharged 1.6L 3-cylinder engine, producing a whopping 300 horsepower and up to 273 lb-ft of torque.

Mastering Details and Dynamics:

The 2024 GR Corolla, meticulously crafted on the Toyota New Global Architecture-C platform (TNGA-C), promises superior rigidity and a low centre of gravity.

The design ethos for the GR Corolla is clear: maximum aerodynamics and minimum weight. The muscular grille and flaring rear wings underline its bold, planted silhouette, and inside, the cockpit design, refined with input from professional rally drivers, ensures high performance is always within the driver’s reach. A 12.3” multi-information display, heated sport seats, and an intuitive Toyota Multimedia system accentuate the driver-focused interior, bringing smart connectivity technologies and a bundle of safety features, including Toyota Safety Sense 3.0.
