The new generation of the Toyota Corolla has been officially unveiled, in its U.S. specification, after being teased and leaked quite a few times.
The 2014 Toyota Corolla is now coming with new standard LED low-beam headlights and it’s getting a five-point lower grille. The cabin size has increased and it’s now more spacious thanks to the longer wheelbase, which stands at 2,700 mm (106.3 inches), 100 mm longer (3.93 inches). This is translated into extra rear seat room. Standard equipment found on the model includes the back-up monitor, Bluetooth, eight airbags, touch screen radio, power moonroof, keyless entry, push-start button, SofTex seats and much more.
The brand new Toyota Corolla will hit the market in three trim levels, the L, the LE and the S, and the standard engine will be the 1.8 liter four-cylinder unit, producing 132 BHP (98 kW), while on the LE Eco, power is being provided by a 140 BHP (104 kW) 1.8 liter unit. Depending on the trim levels, future customers of the new Corolla will be able to get the six-speed manual transmission, for the L and the S, along with a seven-speed CVTi-S for the LE, LE Eco and S, while the entry-level L will get an automatic four-speed.
The new generation of the Toyota Corolla is 4,639 mm long (182.6 inches), 1,776 mm wide (69.9 inches) and 1,455 mm tall (57.3 inches), being actually 99 mm (3.90 inches) longer than before, 16 mm wider (0.63 inches) and 10 mm lower (0.39 inches).
