With the 2014 Corolla just around the corner, Toyota is applying some equipment makeup to its 2013 model by launching two special editions, the luxury-oriented Corolla LE and the sportier Corolla S. Both bring extra standard features and are aimed at different categories of customers.
The 2013 Toyota Corolla LE Special Edition offers equipment targeted at consumers who want comfort and entertainment from their car. It comes with standard 16-inch alloy wheels, Display Audio with Navigation and Entune (three-year subscription), electrically adjustable and heated Beige leather seats, Special Edition floor mats and exterior badging. The LE is also easily recognizable due to its unique Black Currant Metallic exterior paint.
For customers who are more into sporty looks, Toyota offers the Corolla S Special Edition. The S offers a more dynamic styling, with 17-inch alloy wheels, unique Hot Lava exterior, a rear spoiler and exterior badging. On the inside, the 2013 Corolla S Special Edition comes with Sport fabric seats, Special Edition floor mats and Display Audio with Navigation and Entune.
Toyota will build a total of 2,250 LE and 5,250 S models during a two-month period beginning in April. Both will arrive at dealerships in late April for an MSRP price of $20,550 (€15,930), which excludes a delivery, processing and handling fee of $795.
Although Toyota didn't mention this in the press release, both versions should be on display at the 2013 New York International Auto Show.
