Exterior Design

Stylish & Athletic Design

The Corolla in 2021 delivers a stylish and sporty exterior, bred from its low centre of gravity and solidly planted stance. It’s led ahead by its honeycomb grille and flanked by bi-beam J-shaped headlights that further accentuate its bold status. Framing the entire athletic sedan are the wheels that cut a wide and powerful stance, ready to unleash power at any given moment.

Performance S Line

Want the ultimate in sport style out of your Corolla? The base L and LE trims of the Corolla may still be sporty and peppy all by themselves, but for those who want even more of a performance focus, the SE and XSE trims exist to satiate those with a racetrack hunger. These trims are further defined by their 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and broader honeycomb grille that further highlights the Corolla’s sport features and stance. Triple J-shaped headlights at the front and a rear lip spoiler and dual lip exhaust at the rear provide even more high-level sporty design elements.

Apex & Nightshade Edition

Bring your Corolla to its own unique level through either of these special editions. The 2021 Apex Edition upgrades the SE with a body kit, 18-inch black flow-formed aluminum wheels, black rear spoiler and badging. Another edition that highlights the dark side of the Corolla is the Nightshade Edition, with black features including 18-inch alloy wheels, mirror caps, front/rear spoilers, badging and much more.

Performance & Engines

Toyota New Global Architecture Platform

Looking agile and sporty is only half the battle, being built on the Toyota New Global Architecture platform means this new Corolla backs up its look with terrific performance. With a low centre of gravity, wide track and a durable structure that works in concert with the multi-link rear suspension and active cornering assist, the 2021 Corolla delivers an incredibly agile ride.


A 2.0L Dynamic Force engine is found on the SE and XSE, bumping the horsepower up to 169, while still being gracious on fuel economy. The base engine is a 1.8L 4-cylinder on the L, LE and XLE, with a CVT that provides for a smooth drive throughout its 139 horsepower.

Sport-Tuned Suspension

A sport-tuned suspension is found on the SE and XSE trims, a MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear, connecting beautifully for a comfortable ride. Power inspired by F1 racers, these sport performance Corolla trims brings their ability to a commanding level.

  • Automatic High Beams reacts to the darkness around you

Be alert to any vehicle that slips into your blind spot with the presence of a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. As soon as a vehicle escapes view from your side-view mirror, you’ll be alerted to where it is.

What’s Changed From the 2020 Toyota Corolla?

Advancing from the 2019 model to the 2020 model last year saw a big redesign, so this year things are a bit more subtle on this still freshly new Corolla. It saw a whole new styled look, but still maintained all of the comfort, tech and safety you expect in a Toyota. 2021 sees the introduction of the limited Apex Edition, for one-of-a-kind unique Corolla styling and with an upgraded suspension. Inside, Android Auto is standard, while the airbag system has improved from 8 to 10. Still advancing after all these years, the Corolla continues to reinvent itself and double-down on its decades-long feature highlights.
