New for 2022, two Apex Edition models feature performance tuning and distinctive styling – including an exclusive body kit.

2022 also sees the return of the limited production Nightshade Edition, which sports unique detailing to make a bolder statement.

The instrument panel is cleverly shaped to widen the driver’s field of view while all gauges and controls are thoughtfully arranged for the driver’s convenience.

Soft-touch controls and attention to fit and finish add extra expressions of style.

Other interior features of note include power windows with auto up/down feature for all windows, satin plated door handles and accents, piano black instrument panel accents, and the convenience of a front console box with lid.

Connectivity and other technologies

Regardless of the powertrain, all models enjoy a low centre of gravity, a highly rigid body structure and a finely tuned multi-link rear suspension that make the Corolla agile and responsive – in short, super fun to drive.

All Corolla models are well-equipped with in-vehicle connectivity and other technologies.

Toyota Connected Services includes features such as Scout GPS Link and App Suite Connect, while the display audio system includes voice recognition, SIRI Eyes-Free, Bluetooth Connectivity, a USB Audio Input, steering wheel-mounted controls, and six speakers.

All 2022 models support both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it even easier to integrate a smartphone with the in-vehicle multimedia system.

A long list of standard safety systems includes Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 – a bundle of active safety technologies that help extend the driver’s awareness and ability to avoid collisions or mitigate their effect.

TSS 2.0 includes Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection, Automatic High Beams, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian and Bicycle Detection, Lane Tracing Assist, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Other standard safety features include the Toyota Star Safety System, a backup camera and eight airbags.

New this year, all Corolla models are fitted with an added safety feature that ensures the rear lights are on when the vehicle is moving.
