The 11th generation of Corolla, the world’s best-selling car was launched back in 2013 and it was about time for the facelift to carry on the success of this generation for another 2/3 years before the 12th generation replaces it. Toyota has already started testing the 12th generation Corolla which will be based on TNGA platform and will likely make its debut in 2019.
The new Corolla facelift adopts a slightly more contemporary design with sharper elements and aggressive touches.
