The 2023 Toyota GR Corolla
The 2023 Toyota GR Corolla is kicking up steam as this hot new ride burns rubber in the rain in its promotional photo. Showing off its all-wheel-drive option, the new member of the Toyota Gazoo Racing family stole the spotlight, and rightly so. Join us at Landers Toyota of Northwest Arkansas in Rogers as we take a look at the first-ever 2023 Toyota GR Corolla.
The Gazoo Racing (GR) family grows with the 2023 GR Corolla. The 2022 Toyota GR86 and 2022 Toyota GR Supra are agile and exceptional cars, and this new car both fits and succeeds these expectations. This Corolla Hatchback addition adds another level of performance and style to the already powerful Toyota GR lineup. There are two available trim levels: Core and Circuit Edition. The Circuit Edition will only be available during 2023. If the 2023 GR Corolla reaches the expectations of professional Gazoo Racing drivers, then let’s take a closer look at what sets it apart.
The 2023 GR Corolla has a 1.6-liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine with 300 horsepower, 273 lb.-ft. of torque, and a six-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission. The Toyota GR Corolla will not offer an automatic transmission. The GR-Four all-wheel-drive drivetrain cannot be stopped by bumpy roads or unpleasant weather. Power moves from a 50/50 distribution to 60/40 or 30/70 front and rear to increase the traction potential. The customizable power settings give you, the driver, more control over the ride. There are three driving modes you can choose between while driving: Normal, Sport, and Track. Match the current mode and AWD with the GR Corolla’s circuit-tuned suspension and proper tires for the assurance that you’ll leave no road unconquered.
While the 2023 GR Corolla looks stunning, the intricate details aren’t just for looks. The exterior of the GR Corolla is lined with sharp angles and functional features that increase the aerodynamics of the hatchback. The intimidating stability of the front fascia is due to the expansive front grille, flared fenders, overall wide stance, and functional vents on either side of the grille. The strength in the design doesn’t end at the front bumper. The broad rear diffuser under the hatchback continues the trend for a complete assertive exterior design. If you choose to snag a GR Corolla Circuit Edition, you can equip the vehicle with a forged carbon-fiber roof and vented hood to build on the already impressive look. Choose between White, Supersonic Red, and Heavy Metal for the Circuit Edition’s exterior color, or between White, Black, and Supersonic Red for the Core trim.
The interior of the 2023 GR Corolla can include a leather-trimmed steering wheel, a gauge cluster, an all-new touchscreen, and Toyota Audio Multimedia System. The GR Corolla Circuit Edition can add to the interior by offering suede-trimmed sport seats, red accents, and a 2023-only shift knob signed by Morizo.
If you find the GR Corolla lacking in any way, know that it will also come with a complimentary National Auto Sport Association one-year membership. Another perk that goes hand in hand with the membership? A High-Performance Driving Event with expert instruction. Don’t miss out on the perks!
Toyota recently completed the GR86 FasterClass to bring attention to the driving capabilities of the 2022 Toyota GR86. With the new shift towards the GR Corolla, the racing theme continues. Pricing for the 2023 Toyota GR Corolla has not been announced, but it is set to make an appearance in the fall of 2022. We at Landers Toyota NWA in Rogers, Arkansas will be not-so-patiently awaiting its arrival!
