Toyota Freshens Up Euro-Spec Corolla, Sales Begin This Summer

The most popular vehicle in Toyota’s lineup has received some upgrades for the 2017 MY three years after its launch.

The 11th generation of the Corolla is offered in approximately 150 countries worldwide and accounts for 20 percent of Toyota’s global sales.

The model that’s sold in European markets adopts a new design language, highlighted by the new front fascia with different LED headlights flanking the small upper grille and revised bumper incorporating a large lower grille. The door handles now have a new chrome finish, while at the rear there are fresh LED taillights and chrome trim. It’s also available with 16- and 17-inch alloys and a choice of 9 body colors, three of which (Platinum Bronze, Tokyo Red and Earth Bronzeare) are new.

It looks like the refreshed Corolla doesn’t have any changes under the skin. However, as with all new Toyotas, the Safety Sense system, with Lane Departure Alert, Pre-Collision System, Road Sign Assist and Automatic High Beam, helping prevent or mitigate collisions across a wide range of traffic situations by processing info coming from a laser and a camera, is standard equipment.

The 2017 Corolla is scheduled to go on sale across Europe this summer.
