There shouldn’t much changes or updates happening for the 2018 Toyota Corolla considering that the 2017 model has undergone a cosmetic change and updated work. The changes are pretty nice and impressive that it is possible that the 2018 doesn’t need to go any other changes anymore. The 20018 model is expected to be the carryover that retains the good appearance and style of the classic Corolla.
The new 2018 Toyota Corolla will still retain the good look from the 2017 model, with the reworked nose (just a bit), new headlights with the LED technology, the rearview camera as the standard, cloth premium seats, and other safety features. You can say that the new Corolla will still hold the same good looking design and performance.
Since changes happening on the exterior side, expect the same thing to happen for the interior cabin. The new 2018 Toyota Corolla will retain the similar roomy space arrangement, complete with the technologies and features. Rear seat, especially, will stay spacious and comfortable – and you can expect more improvement with the accompaniment of new technologies. There will be power window and locks, power mirror, AC, tilt and telescope steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, audio system with six speakers, Bluetooth connection, 6.1 inch display with the touchscreen feature, and also adjustable driver seat.
It is not only the exterior appearance that doesn’t get any changes, the powertrain may not get any updates at all. If such a plan is true, you can expect the same four cylinder engine with 1.8 liter capacity producing 132 hp of power with 128 Nm of torque. This is the arrangement for the basic trim so expect a bigger outcome from the LE Eco trim. It uses the same engine arrangement but with 140 hp as the outcome. For the transmission, you can stick to the CVT but you can get the optional manual six speed transmission if you choose the SE trim.
Expect the safety features to be the major focus for this line, considering that it will come with the newest Safety Sense technology. Expect better technology with pedestrian technology, etc, with this one.
For the price and release date, there hasn’t been any official announcement about it. But if production starts from July, biggest chance that the company will release it around August. For the price range, it is predicted that the 2018 Toyota Corolla price should start from around $19,400 to $23,500.
