2024 Toyota GR Corolla Changes, Review, Specs

2024 Toyota GR Corolla Changes, Review, Specs – Behind our preferably lap of the Utah Motorsports Campus in the 2024 Toyota GR Corolla, we stood beaming from ear to ear. That smile grew as we drove the Circuit Edition, a sportier, better-equipped version. Then we hopped into the Morizo Edition, a limited-edition lightweight special. By the third stint, our hands were shaking. Yeah, it’s that good.

If you’re wondering why a Toyota Corolla and a racetrack are in the same sentence, let us tell you about Gazoo Racing and its newest design.

Toyota put the same racing-inspired G16E-GTS engine from the Yaris in the larger Corolla so Americans would consider purchasing it. Then the engineers increased the power of the 1.6-liter three-cylinder engine—the one that is smaller in displacement than the G16E-GTS engine—to make it more powerful. Gazoo is Toyota’s motorsports division, responsible for race cars like the GR010, which contends in Le Mans, and road automobiles like the GR20.

The shade options for the Core grade have Ice Cap or Black as no-cost options or Supersonic Red (seen above) for $425; pushing up to the Circuit Edition counts Heavy Metal for $425; and for the Morizo Edition.

This cabin is unapologetically based on a Corolla, a frugal commuter car built on a budget, but that’s not to say the GR Corolla’s cabin isn’t nice.
All grades come standard with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system from Toyota, which is connected to six speakers on the Core, A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster also adds to the high-tech feel from the driver’s seat.

Core grades get basic clothes, while the Circuit and Morizo step it up with Brin-Naub suede that classes up the cabin. Both the Circuit and Morizo also receive a special shift knob, wrapped in leather or suede, respectively. The seats have more support than a regular 2024 Toyota GR Corolla and hold people well on the track.

The GR Corolla’s 1.6-liter three-pot engine generates 300 horsepower and 273 lb-ft (295 lb-ft in the Morizo) with the aid of 25.2 PSI of boost (26.3 on the Morizo), which is more than the Hyundai Elantra N but admittedly less than the Type R and Golf R.

Toyota estimates a 4.99-second 0-60 mph time for the lower two grades, while the lighter, torqueier, and more humid Morizo can complete the sprint in 4.03 seconds. Toyota decided to only offer the 2024 Toyota GR Corolla with a six-speed manual transmission. The throws are short yet engaging, with a satisfying feel. It features Toyota’s iMT rev-match technology, making the car easier to downshift on the track without heel-toe shifting.

2024 Toyota GR Corolla Release Date And Price

Toyota priced the base Core Grade at $35,900, about the same price as a mid-level Golf GTI or Subaru WRX, though the former is only front-wheel drive. A $1,180 Performance Package with limited-slip differentials and bigger brakes, and a $500 Cold Weather Package stand all learned for this frame level.
