All-New 2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan To Debut On November 16

Toyota has officially announced that the all-new Corolla Sedan will bow next week at the Guangzhou Auto Show, November 17-25.

The compact sedan will make its debut alongside the China-exclusive Toyota Levin on November 16, the event’s press day. While the 2020 Corolla Sedan will probably be shown in Chinese specification, it should also accurately preview the U.S.-spec car. As for the Levin, it is a more upscale version of the four-door Corolla.

Unfortunately, the Japanese automaker offers no information whatsoever on the closely-related Corolla Sedan and Levin. However, we do know the all-new Corolla Sedan shares the TNGA modular platform with the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. That means the four-door model should offer the same powertrains as the five-door version.

In the United States, the hatch uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that makes 168 hp (170 ps) at 6,600 rpm and 155 lb-ft (210 Nm) of torque at 4,800 rpm. It comes with two transmission options: a six-speed manual with rev-matching and an all-new Dynamic-Shift CVT with Sport Mode and paddle shifters.

The shift to the TNGA platform will also result in a roomier interior and less overall weight. Therefore, the 2020 Corolla Sedan should offer better fuel efficiency and sharper handling characteristics than its predecessor. Equipment-wise, the new model will pack more safety features, as well as Toyota’s latest infotainment system.

Expect the 2020 Corolla Sedan to borrow a lot from its hatchback counterpart when it comes to the design as well. These two renderings created by Kleber Silva offer a pretty good idea of what the all-new model will look like. Three quarters of the sedan should look identical to the five-door version, with only the rear quarter altered to accommodate the longer trunk.

    Looks ok.
    Until you remember all the rivals.

      They didn’t make this clear, but those are not official images of the new Corolla Sedan, they are photoshopped unofficial images.

      • Bash

        That makes sense.

  • Toronado_II

    You really want something reliable when you buy this car because this is the only thing you got.

  • Dennis Scipio

    It looks good in my opinion, but
    the Hatchback looks more sportier.

  • TheBelltower

    Looks 1000X than any previous Corolla. Though still pretty unappealing.

  • Paul

    It looks pretty good other than that sucker fish nose on it. Jeez Toyota get over this stupid design trend you’ve been on lately.

  • this rendering is convincing but the video silhouette seems a bit different.

  • Craig

    I’ve always appreciated the Corolla. If you can get the sedan with a manual transmission – it would make ‘take a good look’ list.

  • ksegg

    It’s like a bologna sandwich. Except it’s a car.

    It’s food. You can eat it. But you’re not really going to enjoy it.

  • Galaxium

    Looks nice but the Civic is still going to be better.

  • no25

    What other models are being teased in the video?

    • SpongeBob99Swell

      The wagon and the hatchback.


  • Joe E

    When the Corolla adopts a styling queue, it’s a signal that that specific queue has officially jumped the shark. In this case, it’s lobster claw tail-lights. Played out and DONE.

  • EM1

    Job well done, but when the new Mazda 3 get’s revealed this model will greatly be ignored.

    • getoffme

      The Corolla itself outsells what Mazda sells as a company. Ignored?

  • Six_Tymes

    I wonder if it’ll use a new platform? the current has been in use for a generation.

  • Enter Ranting

    You have to be kidding me. A Carolla with fangs? It’s a self parody.

  • SteersUright

    They have got to fire their designers. Toyotas and most Lexus cars are just downright ugly these days. That said, Lexus still has some amazing interiors though.
