Toyota Corolla sedan: a comparison of old vs new
Toyota Corolla sedan new generation and old generation: comparison
After Toyota showed at the motor show in Guangzhou, China a new version of the Corolla in the closing line of the body styles – sedan, can accurately say that the entire mosaic together, all three variants: the hatchback, wagon and sedan now in the cage of the Japanese automaker and is only a matter of time before the three and docobject (sedan and wagon) will go into production and will arrive to dealers.
Buyers in Russia have traditionally been more interested in the version with a small trunk at the stern, so historically in our country, the Toyota Corolla sells like hotcakes in this type of body, so special attention we pay him initially:

Well, let’s see what we can do more interesting things to talk about Toyota Corolla. May be it makes sense to compare the new debut of the sedan model with the current Corolla, the eleventh generation facelifted? I think in this sense definitely is!
Toyota Corolla XI and XII generation front
As became clear from the first moment, the new version of one of the most hardy in the world of sedans will be significantly different from its original model. Especially good is the transformation seen at the front. Compare for yourself the two pictures of the two cars. The top photo shows a new model on the lower version of the model of the previous generation:
Note that shown in the photo above, the car belongs to the European and Chinese markets, the design had changed, though but slightly, if to take a sedan for North America, changes are made much more and they are much more striking:
But since the North American version will not come to us, take a closer look at the European counterpart. Yes, as you can see, the new generation sedan Toyota made clearly simpler, but even there the differences are apparent to the naked eye. Huge radiator filesresearch in the middle of the bumper (on the 11th generation of these slots though, but they were much more modest), changed accents chrome inserts at the level of the corporate icon, Toyota fully redesigned, now chrome strip in one piece and a little less comes to lights. As for the headlights, the internal led elements, the so-called DRL (daytime running lights), now create a totally different stylistic perception models as more modern and safe car. Stylistic and technological differences increase as soon as it comes to versions of the Corolla for the US market. It carved through the lights of unusual shape, the difference between the two generations is visible even more.
Location of air intakes and fog lights on the front bumper though has remained the identical, call their scale is impossible, because of making about a dozen of different changes in their appearance. The hood and plastic lining on the outer rear view mirrors have also been modified.
P. S. For the Chinese market, the model is identical as in the States the headlights will be called Levin. If she’ll come to Europe – is unknown, but one thing’s for sure – in Russia it is not worth waiting.
Profile Toyota Corolla
And here is the profile version of the sedan has changed very little. The main differences here are seen in the line of the side Windows, the presence of the “vents” on the front blogowogo area window and move the “mugs” mirrors with a window frame on the door. In the back, the window is now divided into three parts, and the end of the plastic cap on the XI series models, this was not.
Visible changes in the punch on the door, at the top, now the rib passes obliquely, and at the bottom. Changed the profile back door, becoming more smooth, naturally became the other end of the front headlights and rear lights.
Ah, Yes, the roof profile was a little flatter.
In General, for cosmetic changes, even if they are of a substantial character, hiding all the same sedan under the number 11.
The rear part of the two sedans
The second important change in the style of the two models. Revised external data trunk, taillights, rear bumper.
In the first case, there is a more clear and sharp lines, the presence at the top of the trunk integrated spoiler and a more recessed inside the Central part. The lights changed the style, moving back under the stop signals on the current model the white bar is at the top. Well, the bumper was more similar to the protective element Toyota Camry of last generation – more angles, more sharp lines and features. Especially notable is the lower gain, like it’s an additional covering, although in practice, the element is not more than the usual vyshtampovkoy.
Comparison of the interior of the Corolla (at the top of the new version of the model)
In the cabin you will find exactly those changes which have been applied in the five-door hatchback shows the company informed. Dashboard entertainment system went up, now she stands out in the interior, drawing attention to themselves. Right below it change the cluster configuration operation of the air conditioner and blowing, he now has got a separate LCD screen for easy settings. Of course, have been moved elements blowing across the top, they moved to the centre, and all were rectangular in shape (before the side nozzle was round).
In addition, we changed the Central tunnel, steering wheel, dashboard, seat… In General, it is easier to say that has not been altered, because Toyotomi job on the interior very thoroughly.
However, serious differences with the previously shown five-door version of the hatchback model no. The sedan has the same design and technological features including infotainment system “Entune 3.0” working with compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Amazon’s Alexa. The base model will get a 7-inch touchscreen, while the higher version will have 8-inch display.
