Toyota considering a GRMN Corolla

There are some articles that I've come across which suggest that Toyota is currently exploring the idea of a high performance version of the new Corolla. I really like the design of the new hatchback style and I think a proper performance model would only help to elevate it higher. The last time we saw the Corolla get a sports variant was back in the early 2000's. https://www.carscoops.com/2018/10/to...-corolla-grmn/

I would be happy to see this on the redesigned hatchback model. It's already been criticized for being sporty on aesthetics alone. Toyota's profits have been so high in the last quarter that we might see some aggressive pricing cuts across their lineup.

Since they are slapping TRD badges on the Camry and Avalon, I'm sure they also have plans to expand their GRMN trim. The new Corolla hatchback looks the part, but early reviews seem to suggest its powertrain falls a bit short.

Hopefully this means we'll eventually get something more techy like what VW does but in a reliable package we can have confidence in, being a Japanese products and all.

Had a Golf once and wouldn't go back, sorry VW folks.

I think you guys might be right and TRD variant might be more likely on the new gen hatchback. I think they actually showcased a tuned up Corolla at this years SEMA. Certainly is a far cry from previous generations.

Safe to say almost anything sporty on the new TNGA platform could get a TRD and/or GRMN variant.

As sporty as the new hatchback Corolla is, I think it could use more than 170hp on tap. I'm sure its great as a commuter vehicle, but it might not appease real driving enthusiasts.

x-Tomi Design is known for creating renderings close to what car makers follow through with and this might be on the ball...

TRD models never get any revisions to the powertrain from what I can tell. The only real changes that we see aside from cosmetics are larger brakes, stiffer springs, anti roll bars and performance wheel sets.

Soft launches into the performance categories aside from models like the Supra is what i like to see.

Toyota moves slow but steady and rarely has to chop models. They're one of the best for a reason.
