Toyota could teach Subaru a thing or two with the GR Corolla
The 2023 Toyota GR Corolla is exactly what the automotive industry needs these days. Two versions of the GR Corolla will be offered – The Core and the more track focused, super cool looking Circuit Edition.
It’s powered by a lightweight and very compact turbo-charged, direct injected three-cylinder engine that delivers an impressive 300 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque in this little car. It’s been engineered to optimize acceleration out of the corners with peak torque coming in at 3000-5500 rpm and max horsepower at 6500 rpm.
The power is then piped through a one of a kind triple exhaust that’s designed to reduce back pressure for maximum power delivery.
The engine is paired with Toyota’s rally developed GR-Four All-Wheel-Drive that gives the drivers a choice of 60-40, 50-50 or 30-70 power distribution to the front and rear wheels.
The GR Corolla will only be offered in a manual transmission, which to me shows Toyota’s did not compromise with what they wanted to achieve with this model – to create a true drivers machine.
The GR Corolla will go on sale later in 2022 but there’s no pricing information yet. Hopefully it will land in the $30,000 range.
