The 12th generation Toyota Corolla sedan is set to make its global debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show on 16th of November. Earlier this year, the all-new Corolla hatchback debuted at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March, while the estate version premiered at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in September.
Toyota has now released a teaser which shows silhouettes of the hatchback, estate, and sedan versions of the new model, delivering the message- ‘A new era for Corolla.’
The all-new Corolla is based on Toyota’s new TNGA platform and will pack a range of hybrid and gasoline powertrains under the hood. According to Toyota, the new Corolla will be the best model ever and will offer more style, better reliability, enhanced quality, better driving experience, refined interior, powerful powertrains and will come equipped the innovative and highly advanced Toyota Safety Sense package.
The 12th gen Corolla has been spotted testing on numerous occasions while there are plenty of speculative renderings based on the hatchback, to give us a pretty good idea of how it’s going to look like.
In China, Toyota operates two joint ventures FAW-Toyota and GAC-Toyota, both of which develops their own iterations of Corolla. And it’s quite likely for the 12th gen Corolla to have two different designs in China, available for sale in parallel.
Toyota has replaced the 11th gen Corolla in less than six years after it was introduced in 2013. In Pakistan the 11th gen Corolla reached in June 2014, so we might expect the new generation to reach our market by 2020, completing its 6-year lifespan.
The new Corolla will go on sale in global markets initially with the Altis grade, towards the first-half of 2019. Stay tuned to CarSpiritPK for a detailed coverage of the new Toyota Corolla from 2018 Guangzhou Auto Show.
