Toyota Corolla sedan revealed

2020 Toyota Corolla | Toyota

Like the hatchback version released locally in August, the Corolla sedan is built on Toyota's new TNGA platform, which has resulted in a 60 per cent increase in torsional rigidity and lower centre of gravity, thanks to the use of ultra high-strength steel and new structural adhesive technology.

Following the reveal of a redesigned Corolla Hatchback at the start of the year, Toyota has now followed up with the reveal of a redesigned Corolla sedan.

Toyota Corolla sedan, U.S. version.

Toyota is serious about shedding its ho-hum image, and the latest proof of this comes in the form of the 2020 Corolla sedan.

The interior was designed, "based on a Sensuous Minimalism concept" which Toyota simplifies as a simple yet sensual vision.

On the U.S. version, the front end details vary by model grade, with the sportiest faces incorporating a body-coloured chin spoiler and aero stabilizing fins. Toyota also promises improved visibility from the driver's seat. The clean, tidy dashboard design features centrally mounted climate controls, and a 7- or 8-inch (depending on trim level) touchscreen infotainment system mounted front-and-center. 2019 Toyota Corolla sedan gets a new architecture with multi link rear suspension as against the torsion beam set up seen on its earlier counterpart. The front MacPherson strut layout has also been totally revised for this platform, and newly-developed shock absorbers also make their way on to the vehicle. Items on the list include Apple CarPlay compatibility, Amazon Alexa cloud-based voice service and Wi-Fi Connect, and Qi wireless device charging is available as an option.

The hidden message behind Deepikas wedding dress
The newlyweds are expected to be back in India by the end of the week and will reportedly host two reception parties. Well, your guess is as good as ours! - Harshdeep Kaur performing live as Deepika - Ranveer got married.

Toyota will indeed be expanding the 2019 Corolla's footprint next year subsequently as it will be retailed in well over 150 nations. A naturally aspirated 2,0-litre without the hybrid gubbins is also expected to be offered in some markets.

A six-speed manual is standard in lower-grade cars, but the engine can also be paired with a continuously-variable transmission complete with 10 artificial "gears" and a mechanical launch ratio for a smoother take-off.

In terms of safety, the new Corolla sedan will get fitted with the Toyota Safety Sense package that not only alerts in the event of potential dangers but actually aids and supports in making the drive safer. TSS for this sedan comprises Pre-Collision System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Tracing Assist and Automatic High Beams.

The initial line up will present the auto in Sporty and Prestige forms. For the U.S. market, the new Corolla carries forward the 1.8-litre petrol engine offered in its predecessor, though with a change in tuning. Wheel sizes offered for the vehicle will range from 16- to 18-inch units.

There's no mention of a hybrid powertrain in the official launch materials for the Corolla sedan but, given they're very similar under the skin, it'll likely be offered with the hatchback's electrified powertrain down the track.
