Toyota has revealed a fresh teaser image of the new Corolla sedan ahead of its unveiling towards the middle of November 2018.
The image – which we’ve lightened a little for the sake of clarity – shows the headlamps we’ve already seen on the Corolla hatch (which at the time of its reveal in Europe was still badged as the Auris). But the treatment of the badge on the twelfth-generation sedan is a little different here, as is the shape of the grille and foglamps.
Since they will share the TNGA platform, sedan powertrain options are expected to mirror those of the hatchback, which in Europe is offered with just a single conventional engine (in the form of the 1,2-litre turbopetrol that debuted in the C-HR) plus a choice of 2,0-litre hybrid powertrains in various states of tune.
A naturally aspirated 2,0-litre without the hybrid gubbins is also expected to be offered in some markets.
The Corolla sedan is scheduled to be unveiled in China at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition on November 16. The hatchback (which has already been spotted locally), meanwhile, is expected to launch in South Africa in February 2019.
