2023 GR Corolla
Born From Rally-Racing
Fueled By Rally Spirit
Introducing the 2023 GR Corolla. Engineered by the same team that has made TOYOTA GAZOO Racing a force to be reckoned on the world stage, and track tested by master driver Akio Toyoda himself, GR Corolla brings its thrill-inducing formula to Canadian driving enthusiasts.
The 3rd in the GR-line, GR Corolla is powered by a revolutionary 3-cylinder turbo engine, boasts the innovative GR-FOUR front-to-rear adjustable all-wheel drive system, and features a driver’s cockpit that truly puts you in command and control.
Handbuilt at the TGR Motomachi factory in Japan, GR Corolla will set your pulse racing, and take your breath away.
With the 2023 GR Corolla, the detail-obsessed TOYOTA GAZOO Racing team has engineered a sports car with the performance, handling and functionality worthy of the GR name. Inspired by the spirit of rally, engineers and technicians have sharpened acceleration and control to design a vehicle that meets the approval of master driver Akio Toyoda and now, ready for yours.
Power that Thrills
Under the hood a compact yet powerful G16E-GTS turbo charged, direct/port injected three-cylinder engine serves up 300 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque for snappy acceleration out of the corners.
- 1.6L TURBO 3-CYLINDER ENGINE
- 300 HP @ 5500 RPM
- 273 LB-FT TORQUE @ 6500 RPM
Staying true to its rally-racing roots, GR Corolla is offered exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission with a short-throw lever for quick throws between gears.
Developed for rally, the GR-FOUR All Wheel Drive delivers exceptional traction and control. This lightweight powertrain optimizes drive power to each wheel with just a twist of the dial.
Up front the MacPherson-type strut design works to deliver all the engine’s power to the road and provide optimum cornering. While the rear suspension uses a double wishbone type multilink system for maximum agility and stability.
TORSEN FRONT & REAR LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIALS
Front and rear Torsen Limited-Slip Differentials (LSD) enhance cornering performance by controlling the torque distribution on the front and rear axles.
Opposed, fixed-caliper disc brakes with ventilated and slotted rotors and outfitted with 4-piston aluminum calipers up front and 2-piston aluminum fixed-caliper disc brakes in the rear. Red calipers with a GR logo give the Circuit Edition their distinct style.
TOYOTA GAZOO RACING
The GR stands for GAZOO Racing, Toyota’s global racing division. From rallies in the world’s most extreme climates and terrains, to endurance races like the 24 Hours of Le Mans, racing is where we show our passion for performance.
Designed By Drivers For Drivers
Developed in collaboration with the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team and honed by WRC drivers, GR Corolla is designed to perform. Two distinctive grades, Core and Circuit, as well as the limited production MORIZO Edition, focus on lightweight aerodynamics to maximize the performance potential, without compromising strength and safety. Inside, the driver’s cockpit puts the car’s performance within easy reach with details that are just as easy on the eyes.
Hot Hatch Style
Fun to drive. Easy to love. No wonder Canadians love the hot hatch. The GR Corolla injects everyone’s favourite with unique attention-grabbing details. A black GR badged matrix grill leads your gaze over the distinctive hood and tapered roof toward the rear. Here, the wide track and flaring of the rear wings emphasize the car’s low, planted silhouette that’s ready to pounce.
Grounded in High-Performance
To help cut through the air, the GR Corolla Circuit Edition has enhanced aerodynamics including strategic hood and fender vents and a lightweight carbon fibre roof. While 18” gloss black 15-spoke alloy wheels anchor both the Core and Circuit Editions. The wide tread Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tires ensure high cornering performance while maintaining the excellent high-speed stability.
Using input from professional rally drivers, the cockpit design puts the car’s performance in reach thanks to a shift lever with short shift strokes and a pull type mechanical parking brake. A brightly lit display and interior trim details around the console, and door handles put the form into function.
Set your sights on a 12.3” Multi-Information Display inspired by the feedback of rally drivers. In any condition, you’ll get a clear view of the gear shift position, tachometer, turbo pressure, as well as the GR meter with AWD mode, without losing sight of the road ahead.
SETTLE INTO SPORT SEATING
Let the standard heated sport seats embrace you the moment you get in. There’s a 6-way adjustable driver seat while the front passenger will enjoy a 4-way adjustable seat. In the Core Edition, these are finished in GR Sport Fabric and upgrades in the Circuit Edition with GR Sport Suede.
