Toyota Corolla sedan 2020 teased ahead of official debut

The Corolla family will soon swell to three

We've seen the hatchback and Touring Sports versions, and now we meet the third (and presumably final) member of the new Toyota Corolla family, with the Japanese brand preparing to whip the covers off the sedan version of its top-selling small car.

The details are rather thin on the ground for now, with Toyota only confirming the sedan version of its 12th-generation Corolla will be revealed at the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition on November 16.

The teaser clip reveals... well, not much. But you can expect the Corolla sedan to share its siblings' Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA), which has legitimately transformed the brand's small car from spongey and underwhelming to a genuine hoot to drive. It's the same platform that underpins the C-HR, as well Lexus product, and we are fans of it.

We'd also expect the entry-level sedan to launch with a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine Internationally (an engine that is yet to make it to Australia, where the Corolla family opens with a 1.8-litre petrol engine), as well as mirror the “dual-hybrid strategy” used in the rest of the range - a choice between a 91kW 1.8-litre petrol engine/hybrid system, or a punchier 2.0-litre system good for 134kW.
