Toyota Has Made the New Corolla Much Cooler

The new model with ‘Apex Edition’ in its name is intended for fans of track days, which is quite unusual for Toyota Corolla owners.

Toyota Corolla is represented in many world markets and sells quite well. However, the manufacturer has decided to attribute racing features to the sedan, releasing the new version for the American market.

It is worth noting that this modification is already available in Taiwan, Thailand and China. According to the manufacturer, the Toyota Corolla Apex Edition will be available for track days.

The new Toyota Corolla has received a number of external differences that make it recognizable. For example, there is an aerodynamic body kit, door sills and a spoiler on the trunk lid. However, the main change is a new suspension. The Apex Edition has new springs, shock absorbers and stabilizers.

Its ground clearance is reduced by 15 mm. The sedan has got special 18-inch wheels, while the weight of each rim is reduced by a kilogram. The car itself was fine-tuned on the track, so it has become more responsive, and its roll rate has been decreased.

There is still the same engine — a 2.0-liter 171-hp naturally aspirated unit. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission or IVT.

The manufacturer did not show any photos of the interior. However, the new Toyota Corolla is promised to have a unique decor and new seat upholstery.

The Toyota Corolla Apex Edition will be released in a limited edition. The manufacturer will produce only 6,000 of these sedans, while only 120 of them will receive a manual gearbox. Prices are not announced.
