2025 Toyota Corolla: Specs, Redesign, Price & Release Date

The Toyota Corolla is the best-selling car nameplate in the world, with over 50 million units sold. With a legacy that spans decades, the Corolla’s new generation is always a big deal. The current model came out in 2020, so it’s time to look ahead to the 2025 version.

Exterior Design

The 2025 Corolla boasts some very realistic renderings that suggest a mix of design elements from the current Corolla, Crown, and Camry.

Starting with the headlights, they resemble those of the Toyota Crown. We’re also seeing a full-length light bar or chrome piece across the front, which is a trendy feature these days. The lower grille remains typical Toyota, with aggressive side elements likely indicating an XSE trim.

New wheels are anticipated, possibly 18 inches, with a fresh finish. A two-tone roof, seen in the renderings, is another trendy design that could make it to production, especially for the sportier XSE models.

Rear and Body Style

The new Corolla continues as a sedan, though other versions like the crossover and hatchback are also available in the U.S. Globally, there’s even a wagon.

The sedan features a sloped back design, full-length LED tail lights, and sleek design elements. Interestingly, the renderings show no exposed exhaust outlets, even on sportier trims, hinting at a significant powertrain change.

Interior Upgrades

Inside, the new Corolla is expected to blend elements from various Toyota models like the Crown and Prius. Digital gauges, a 12.3-inch display, wireless CarPlay, and Android Auto are likely features. Higher-end models might get brown accents and heated/ventilated seats, though the latter could depend on price.

The interior renderings also show an electronic shifter and a variety of color options, including a potential red interior for the XSE trim.

Powertrain and Performance

The big news is under the hood. The 2025 Corolla might go hybrid-exclusive, with a version of Toyota’s typical hybrid system.

We’re likely looking at around 134 horsepower from a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, with a possibility of a more powerful 196-horsepower version. All-wheel drive could also be on the table, a feature the Civic and Elantra don’t offer.

Fuel Economy and Pricing

With the aerodynamic shape, the new Corolla could push fuel economy even higher, potentially over 50 MPG combined.

Pricing is expected to start around $24,000 for the hybrid and go up to about $30,000 for a fully loaded model. Toyota aims to keep the Corolla competitively priced within its segment.

Release Timeline

The new Corolla is expected to debut in mid to late 2024, with sales starting in late fall 2024 or early winter 2025. Toyota’s consistent launch timing suggests we’ll see it sooner rather than later.
