The entire line has also gained curtain airbags and 17-inch alloy wheels. Another novelty is the return of the XRS version, which made up the Corolla line in 2012. It sports looks sporty with spoilers and airfoil but no changes Mechanical properties.
Also new are the 17 “wheels, which together with the new suspension calibration, offers a new ground height, 5 mm higher. The electric direction was also recalibrated. The engines remain the same, 1.8 (139/144 hp) and 2.0 (143/154 hp) flex, linked to the CVT gearbox with seven-speed simulation.
And in addition to the changes it has just received, the Japanese brand sedan will also have new engines produced in Porto Feliz, inland, starting in 2019. According to the manufacturer, the project will receive an investment of R $ 600 million and will generate around 200 Job opportunities.
It is more expensive, as you would imagine. The previous table went from R $ 68,740 to R $ 110,990. But, at least now, the model now comes equipped with traction and stability controls, plus ramp assistant and seven airbags (two front, two side, two curtain and one knee for the driver). These features are present on all versions. Fortunately, we will no longer use the little piggy’s GIF when we talk about that car.
