  4. Toyota has revealed the first additions to its new Corolla range at the Geneva Motor Show – the new Corolla GR Sport and Corolla Trek Corolla GR Sport The Corolla GR Sport is imbued with spirit of Toyota Gazoo Racing, further developing the model’s dynamic looks and driving capabilities. It will be the second model to join the European GR Sport line-up following the introduction of the Yaris GR Sport last year. Both Hatchback and Touring Sports versions will be available, with a choice of 1.8 or 2.0-litre self-charging hybrid powertrains. The Toyota Gazoo Racing influence is witnessed in distinctive styling elements, including a new front grille with a dark chrome finish, lower skirts and sills and a rear diffuser. The GR Sport has dedicated 18-inch machined-finish alloy wheels, plus rear privacy glass, front fog lights, LED headlights and an exclusive Dynamic Grey bi-tone paint finish. The cabin features sports seats in black cloth upholstery with leather-effect bolsters; full leather upholstery can be specified as an option. Black and red stitching adds a striking contrast on the instrument panel, steering wheel and shift lever. The Corolla GR Sport will go on sale in Europe in January 2020. Details of UK availability and specifications will be announced later. Corolla Trek The Corolla Trek gives the Touring Sports model more rugged, crossover styling, designed to appeal to those who love outdoor pursuits. The Corolla Trek has also inspired a new collaboration between Toyota and Trek Bicycle, two brands which share similar environmental values and offer complementary mobility solutions. Founded in 1976, Trek Bicycle is one of the world’s most popular cycle brands, selling around 1.5 million bikes a year. As well as manufacturing high-performance cycling equipment, Trek also uses the bicycle as a way of helping break down barriers that prevent people from living happier, healthier and more active lives. Toyota has signed an agreement with Trek to provide Corolla Trek as support vehicles for the men’s and women’s teams competing in European events in the Trek-owned Trek-Segafredo World Tour. The Corolla Trek will be offered with the 1.8 or 2.0-litre self-charging hybrid powertrains. It benefits from a 20mm increase in ride height and features front and rear underruns, 17-inch machined alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, front fog lights and LED headlights. Inside there is a seven-inch TFT infotainment screen, two-tone cloth upholstery and matching wood trim details. Sales of the Corolla Trek will begin in August 2019. Details of UK availability will be announced nearer the on-sale date.
  5. The new Team Toyota GB with Speedworks Motorsport Corolla made a successful on-track debut on Friday in preparation for its first racing season in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship Driven by Tom Ingram, the reigning BTCC Independent Champion, the Corolla put in a problem-free performance in an official shakedown test at Oulton Park, home circuit for the Cheshire-based team. The racing Corolla’s first outing coincided with the start of sales of the road-going version of the car, built in the UK at Toyota’s Burnaston factory in Derbyshire. Ingram was delighted with the car’s first track laps: “This was a really positive day and it was nice to put everyone’s mind at ease that the Corolla is a good car. Having completed the shake-down we have a really good platform to start chasing the performance and fast lap times. If we had to head to Brands Hatch for the first race now, I wouldn’t feel nervous about it, we’re in a really good place.” The 25-year-old Buckinghamshire driver has appreciated the public’s support in the build-up to the new season: “The response from fans has been remarkable and we’re delighted that people are really getting involved with it. At the same time, there’s tremendous anticipation from me and the team as well for what’s in store,” he said. Team Principal Christian Dick was equally pleased with the car’s performance: “It was a very productive day. We have plenty of testing planned and the Corolla looks good straight out of the box, so fingers crossed we’ll be right on the pace at the first round.” The team were gradually able to increase the number of laps in each stint until the car was completing a full race distance, with the objective of testing the car’s strength and reliability. “We are well aware that the sooner we could get on track with a complete car, the better the package would be for round one of the series,” Dick added. “The early signs are that we are going to be in very good shape, but we’ve still a lot of work to do.” The car was presented at Oulton in a camouflage livery, with a design nod to the appearance of the Toyota GR Supra sports car when it made its world debut at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. Straight after completing the Oulton Park test, the team moved to the Calafat circuit in Spain for further pre-season testing this week. The Corolla’s racing debut is just one month away, with the first round of the 2019 BTCC taking place at Brands Hatch on 6/7 April.
  6. Toyota’s hugely popular Aygo city car makes a big style statement with a new x-trend version to launch its 2019 line-up Positioned at the heart of the range and expected to be the most popular model in the range, the x-trend majors on colourful styling accents and useful tech. The standard spec’ includes 15-inch alloy wheels with a machined finish, rear privacy glass, front fog lights and a red decal pack, adding eye-catching detailing to the door mirrors, side sills and the lower section of the front and rear bumpers. Opt for Red Pop, Cyan Splash or Silver Splash for the paint finish and the red decals are changed to black. The equipment specification includes easy smartphone integration with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, plus automatic air conditioning and automatic headlights. Customers can also opt to have an electric, full-length retractable Funroof and the added protection of Toyota Safety Sense, with Pre-collision System with autonomous emergency braking and Lane Departure Alert. The new x-trend is powered by Aygo’s proven 71bhp three-cylinder, 1.0-litre petrol engine with a choice of five-speed manual or x-shift automated manual transmission. True to Aygo’s tradition, ownership costs are modest, supported by combined cycle fuel consumption from 53.30 to 57.29mpg, 93g/km CO2 emissions (with manual transmission) and insurance group ratings in the single figures. Peace of mind comes as standard, too, with Toyota’s five-year/100,000-mile new car warranty. The x-trend is on sale now. On-the-road prices are £12,710 for the version with manual transmission and £13,410 with x-shift; specifying Toyota Safety Sense adds £375 to the price. The 2019 Toyota Aygo range opens with the x model (three or five doors, LED rear lights and daytime running lights, power front windows, audio system with USB/Aux-in). Next up is the x-play (five-door only, larger (15-inch) wheels, air conditioning, Bluetooth, DAB, x-touch multimedia system, reversing camera and optional navigation and Toyota Safety Sense). The new x-trend is positioned between x-play and the x-cite model. The x-cite specification includes 15-inch black alloys, Magenta Fizz bi-tone paint finish with toning interior details, smartphone integration, front fog lights, automatic air conditioning, automatic headlights and rear privacy glass, with Toyota Safety Sense optional. The Aygo x-clusiv remains at the top of the range (adding part-leather upholstery, smart entry, bi-tone paint finish and Toyota Safety Sense).

  8. Toyota’s worldwide motorsport programme for 2019 encompasses a wealth of different competitions, from Le Mans and the World Rally Championship to grass-roots competitions for enthusiasts. At every level, the focus is on celebrating the enjoyment of motor racing, creating new fans and using the experience gained on the race track to help design and engineer ever-better cars for the road. Toyota Gazoo Racing, the umbrella organisation for Toyota’s principal motorsport activities, continue to compete in top-level series including the FIA World Endurance Championship (including the Le Mans 24 Hours) and the FIA World Rally Championship. They are currently contesting the 2018-2019 WEC series and have confirmed they will continue in the competition for the 2019-2020 season. In 2018 the team succeeded in winning the Le Mans 24 Hours for Toyota for the first time. Toyota Gazoo World Rally Team are again fielding three Yaris WRC cars and are seeking to defend the manufacturers’ title they won last year. This year has already started well for Toyota with overall victory in the Dakar rally for Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa with a Hilux driven by Nasser Al Attiyah and Mathieu Baumel, plus class victories for Team Land Cruiser Toyota Auto Body (production vehicle) and Hino Team Sugawara (trucks less than 10-litre engine capacity). Toyota remains a front-running competitor in North America’s NASCAR series, fielding the Camry saloon in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and giving the new Toyota GR Supra its debut in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The Tundra pick-up will be in action in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series. Supra will also feature at the Nürburgring 24 Hours in June, bringing the famous sports car name back to the race for the first time in 17 years. Many other race and rally series will feature official Toyota entries, including Japan’s Super GT championship, the Japan Super Formula, the Japanese Rally Championship and popular one-make series for Yaris and GT86 drivers. Full details of all Toyota Gazoo Racing activities, teams and drivers can be found at .
  9. The style choice is street-smart or sporting for two new additions to the Toyota Yaris line-up for 2019. The new Y20 celebrates the supermini’s 20th anniversary, while the hot-looking GR Sport is inspired by the exclusive Yaris GRMN performance hatch Both versions take their place in a revised Yaris range, which continues to offer the established Active, Icon, Icon Tech and Excel grades – the latter with enhanced equipment specifications. Yaris remains unique in the supermini market in offering customers the fuel-efficient, low emissions and refined performance of a self-charging full hybrid powertrain. Yaris Y20 The introduction of the new Yaris Y20 is led by a limited edition version distinguished by a bi-tone paint design featuring the original gold metallic colour Toyota used to launch the original Yaris model in 1998. This is combined with a contemporary dark grey finish for the roof, pillars and door mirror housings. Just 100 cars are available for UK customers. Beyond this special version, the Y20 grade will be central to the Yaris range, offering customers a strong combination of style and equipment features, including a bi-tone finish as standard, with a choice of gold, black, silver or white bodywork. The impact of the car’s styling is heightened by rear privacy glass, 16-inch alloy wheels with a machined/dark grey contrast finish and dark grey fog light surrounds, side sills and front grille, plus Y20 badging. The smart dark grey theme is picked up in the cabin with trim detailing on the steering wheel and centre console. This contrasts with a satin finish for the shift lever surround, air vents and audio speaker trims. The front sport seats have a dark and light grey upholstery with silver grey edging to the head restraints, seatbacks and cushions. The front seats are decorated with the Y20 logo; there is also a Y20 badge on the left side of the dashboard. The general specification matches that of the Icon grade (details below). Yaris GR Sport Inspired by the exclusive Yaris GRMN performance hatchback, the new Yaris GR Sport brings more sporting style and handling to Toyota’s supermini range and is another example of the motorsports success of Toyota Gazoo Racing – winners of both the Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Rally Championship’s manufacturers’ crown in 2018 – is feeding into a new generation of exciting road-going cars. The modifications are focused on the suspension, giving the car engaging handling and responsiveness. It uses Sachs Performance shock absorbers similar to those fitted to the GRMN and a solid (rather than hollow) anti-roll bar to gain extra rigidity. The car has a sporting stance, too, with suspension lowered by 15mm and the body sitting 9mm closer to the ground. The black 17-inch cast alloy wheels are exclusive to the GR Sport, but are fitted with the same Bridgestone Potenza RE50 205/45R17 tyres as the GRMN model. The exterior styling follows that of the Yaris GRMN, including a black bi-tone roof with rear spoiler. There are piano black door mouldings, a black honeycomb grille, black door mirror housings and black front fog light surrounds. The headlights are unique to the GR Sport, with black interior detailing. Dark-tinted rear privacy glass is also fitted as standard, together with GR badging. Optional red decals can be added to the front lip and the top line of the lower rear bumper to generate extra sporty visual appeal. In the cabin the sporting character is clear to see in the supportive GR-branded sports seats, with Ultrasuede seatbacks and cushions. The small-diameter three-spoke steering wheel is shared with the Toyota GT86 coupe and there is a black headlining. Every journey begins with a GR animation on the TFT multi-information display when the engine is started. The black floor mats carry the GR logo as well, and feature contrast silver edging. The GR Sport is exclusively a five-door model, powered by Yaris’s standard 1.5-litre self-charging hybrid powertrain. Yaris Icon Tech and Excel For 2019, the Yaris Icon Tech has a revised equipment specification that includes rear parking sensors in place of the previous front sensor system. Toyota Touch 2 with Go, including navigation, remains a key feature of the Icon Tech. This model is available with all powertrain options: 1.0 and 1.5-litre petrol manual, 1.5-litre petrol CVT automatic and 1.5-litre self-charging hybrid. Where the Yaris Excel is concerned, the model becomes exclusively a self-charging hybrid version. New features include smart entry and door mirrors with an auto-folding function. This increases the car’s already impressive equipment portfolio, which boasts 16-inch black/machined alloys, automatic air conditioning, LED rear lights and daytime running lights, power windows front and rear, black side sills and part-leather seat upholstery. A panoramic roof option is also available. Yaris Active and Icon The entry-level Yaris Active is unchanged from 2018. Available with either a 1.0-litre petrol or 1.5-litre self-charging hybrid powertrain, it comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense (Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert and Road Sign Assist), rain-sensing wipers, power-adjustable heated door mirrors and front power windows. The Icon grade models (1.0 and 1.5-litre manual, 1.5-litre petrol automatic and 1.5-litre hybrid) add 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control with automatic speed limiter, front fog lights, Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system with DAB, reversing camera, leather steering wheel and 4.2-inch colour TFT multi-information display. The Toyota Safety Sense package further includes Automatic High Beam, while the hybrid version also comes with automatic air conditioning, push-button start and leather parking brake trim. These equipment features are also included in the new Yaris Y20 specification.
