New 2024 Toyota Corolla Redesign – A Significant Update

Posted on

2024 Toyota Corolla Redesign – A Significant Update – Expect minor updates to the 2024 Toyota Corolla ahead of a possible 2024 refresh. For 2018, the Corolla Hatchback was released, and the sedan was added for 2019. The changes to the entire lineup are minor. Still, there have been some unique edition models and different driver assistance systems.

According to a new report from overseas, the Toyota Corolla sedan and hatch ranges may get a facelift by the end of 2024.

According to the Japanese website Creative Trend, Corolla dealers will receive their first significant update since its 2018 debut. The refreshed range is expected to be available in Japanese showrooms by October 2024. 2024 Toyota Corolla Redesign

2024 Toyota Corolla Exterior

The exterior changes include a revised color scheme, tail-light, headlight designs, and a new front grille design. However, it is unclear if these will alter the shape or change the internals (lighting signature, grille pattern).

2024 Toyota Corolla Interior

A larger display is rumored to be inside the instrument cluster. However, the report does not clarify whether it will apply to the 4.2-inch screen that Australia’s Ascent Sport and SX variants have or the 7.0-inch display in the ZR.

The 2024 Corolla lineup will continue, with the sedan available in L, SE, SE Nightshade, and XLE trims. The Corolla Hatchback will continue to be available in SE, SE Nightshade, and XSE trims.

The Corolla will remain the same for 2024, with minor trim adjustments. For 2022, the limited-edition Apex sedan, SE Nightshade sedan, and hatchback were both new. However, only the Nightshade is expected to remain. L, LE, and XLE models have a more conservative design, while SE and XSE have larger wheels, more aggressive trim, and a firmer suspension.

Although the exterior styling should not change, Corolla has the latest infotainment system. However, that will likely wait for a complete redesign. 2024 Toyota Corolla Redesign

Toyota currently does not offer any vehicle in Japan or Australia with an eight-inch display for the instrument cluster. However, this will change with the Harrier SUV, which Creative Trend claims will have a 12.3-inch digital cluster.

2024 Toyota Corolla Engine

The Corolla sedan or hatchback comes standard with a 139-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine of the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is available on SE and XSE models. It produces 169 horsepower. Only the L, LE, and XLE models can be ordered with continuously variable auto transmission (CVT). The SE and XSE hatchback models are available with the CVT (or a 6-speed manual).

The Corolla update will also include changes to the active Toyota Safety Sense driver-assist suite. There will be a deletion of the 1.8-liter, non-turbo four-cylinder engine option in Japan and a 1.5-liter, non-turbo, three-cylinder used in the smaller Yaris.

The engine is not available in Australia as a non-hybrid version. There is no mention of Australia’s current options of 1.8-liter hybrid or 2.0-liter nonturbo four-cylinder engines. This suggests that these options will continue unchanged.

2024 Toyota Corolla Safety

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Corolla sedan/hatchback its 2021 Top Safety Pick rating, the second-highest. Only the standard headlights of the Corolla sedan and hatchback were below-par. The 2022 Corollas received a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, its highest rating. These ratings will not change as structural changes are unlikely in 2023. 2024 Toyota Corolla Redesign

In 2021, the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite was added to the Corolla lineup. This includes adaptive cruise-control, automatic emergency braking with a pedestrian detection, and automated high beam assistance. Blind-spot monitoring is an option.

2024 Toyota Corolla Price and release date

To reflect the updated styling and new features, prices may be slightly higher. The current Corolla starts at $25,395, including on-road costs for Ascent Sport hatch or sedan forms, and the flagship ZR Hybrid hatch is $34,695.

All indications point to introducing a high-performance GR Corolla hot-hat variant later in 2022 – although, oddly enough it is not mentioned in these Creative Trend dealer information.

According to the website, the facelifted 2024 Toyota Corolla range will be available in Japanese showrooms by October 2022. This would correspond to an Australian launch at the end of 2019.

An updated model will keep the nameplate of the small-car brand fresh until a new model is available. This could be in late 2023 or early 2024, depending on the life cycles of previous Corolla generations. 2024 Toyota Corolla Redesign
