Toyota has unveiled the 12th generation of its iconic and best-selling model, the Toyota Corolla, in a highly anticipated global launch event. The event took place at two exclusive venues: California, USA, and the Guangzhou International Auto Show in China. The Toyota Corolla 2023 is making a bold statement with its aggressive design, innovative features, and competitive pricing strategy.
The exterior of the Toyota Corolla 2023 sets a new standard for stylish design. It features trapezium-style side-swept headlights with bi-beam daytime running lights that give it a distinctive and modern look. The Toyota emblem is prominently placed in the center of a sleek grille, positioned between the headlights.
The side profile of the Corolla possesses gracefully curved lower edges, adding a sporty touch to its appearance. Notable exterior enhancements include the introduction of a new glass panel at the A-pillar, accommodating wedged side mirrors.
The expanded dimensions of the vehicle are apparent in the introduction of trapezoidal glass panes in the rear doors, enhancing visibility for rear passengers. The rear end of the Corolla boasts aesthetically designed tail lights with a black trim piece connecting them, resulting in an imposing and pleasing overall exterior design.
The interior of the 12th Generation Corolla offers a blend of black and ivory-colored plastic trim pieces. Standard features include power mirrors, power windows, a 7-inch infotainment system, digital climate control, a multi-information display, traction control, a tire pressure monitoring system, cruise control, electronic stability control, and keyless entry.
Toyota has made significant improvements to the interior, offering a more spacious cabin for passengers. The 2023 Corolla showcases a fresh seat design with fabric as the standard option, while leather seats will be available in higher trim levels.
Toyota has made minor yet impactful changes to the 1.8-liter 2ZR-FAE engine, resulting in increased power output from the previous generation. These improvements promise a more dynamic and efficient driving experience for Corolla enthusiasts. Additionally, there are speculations that Toyota might discontinue the XLi and GLi variants to make room for the introduction of the Toyota Vios in the Pakistan market.
The 12th generation Toyota Corolla 2023 is poised to face competition from formidable opponents in the market. Honda Civic and Toyota Prius are among their primary rivals, but the competition may intensify with the potential entry of Hyundai Elantra and Hyundai Accent in the Pakistani market.
Toyota is committed to maintaining a competitive edge with the pricing of the Corolla 2023 in Pakistan. This strategic move aims to position the Corolla as an attractive option for consumers, especially in the face of new entrants to the market.
