Toyota has pulled the cover off two new versions of Corolla, named the GR Sport and Trek, at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Building on the mid or high-end grades, the Corolla GR Sport is available in the Hatchback and Touring Sports body styles. It is available with the 1.8-liter and 2.0-liter hybrid powertrains and adds unique styling cues inside and out.
The bodywork of the car is defined by a dark chrome finished grille, special lower skirts, side rockers and rear diffuser. It also gets a dual-tone Dynamic Grey and black look, bespoke 18-inch machined alloy wheels, LED headlights, fog lamps and rear privacy glass.
Model-specific black fabric seats with leather-like bolsters, along with the black and red stitching on the steering wheel, gear shifter and instrument panel differentiate this special Corolla’s cabin, while clients can also spec a full leather upholstery.
Deliveries of the Corolla GR Sport will commence on January 2020, according to the official press release. Which does sound a bit too long for what is essentially a tarted up version of the two Corolla hybrids, so we’ve already contacted Toyota and are waiting for a reply.
The automaker will also launch a second special edition of the Corolla in August, although it sits at the opposite end of the spectrum compared to the GR Sport. Created in collaboration with Trek Bicycle, the Corolla Trek is available as an estate and comes with the same powertrain choices as the GR Sport.
Based on the mid-range grade, it features a 20 mm (0.8 in) increased ground clearance, crossover-like styling elements at the front and rear, 17-inch machined alloy wheels, LED headlights, fog lamps and rear privacy windows. Inside, it features two-tone fabric seats, matching wood deco elements and 7-inch TFT infotainment screen.
