The world’s best-selling car (a title highly debated with Ford’s Focus) has been subtly revised for the European market and the 2016 Corolla now has a refreshed look.
The slight nip and tuck includes a refreshed front end with a smaller upper grille, modified headlights with a narrower appearance and the bumper now is host to a bigger lower grille. The side has also been touched with new chrome trim for the door handles and new alloy designs for the 16 and 17 inch sizes. The refresh is completed out back with the new look for the LED taillights and a chrome garnish design to accentuates the car’s width. There are nine available exterior hues – including the all new Earth Bronze, Tokyo Red, and Platinum Bronze shades.
Among the standard features the 2016 Toyota Corolla in European guise brings the newest generation of the Toyota Safety Sense that has been designed to prevent or at least mitigate collisions. The suite also includes safety systems such as the Road Sign Assist, Lane Departure Alert, and a Pre-Collision System. The Japanese automaker – the largest in the world but also the biggest company back home – has announced the reworked Corolla sedan will be delivering a “more prestigious exterior styling” in Europe starting this summer. The manufacturer sells the Corolla in different versions and variants across no less than 150 markets all over the world and its sales alone make up about 20 percent of the total deliveries each given year.
