Corolla adds more kit

A FACELIFTED Toyota Corolla hatch revealed at the Geneva Auto Salon will be in local showrooms by the end of the year. Changes to the hatchback version of Australia’s best-selling car includes front and rear styling tweaks (not that you’d know it), and the cabin has been freshened. Toyota Australia has also confirmed that the local-market Corolla hatch will continue to be sourced from Japan (unlike the Thai-built sedan) and use the same 103kW and 173Nm 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine that powers the current version.
