Are you still bitter about the fact that the Toyota GR Yaris won’t be making its way to America? You’re not alone – and Toyota heard you. That’s probably why they’ve decided to introduce an all new GR model to the market in 2022… get ready to welcome the Toyota GR Corolla to Orlando, because it’ll be headed stateside before you can say “hot hatch”.

What will the 2022 Toyota GR Corolla bring to the table?

What will this new GR model have to offer to drivers? Toyota of Orlando has the scoop on some of the details headed our way – check it out:

  • The 2022 Toyota GR Corolla will be a “hot hatch” version of the much-loved sedan and hatchback, which basically means it’s a high-performance model of a mass-produced hatchback.
  • The “GR” stands for Gazoo Racing, Toyota’s World Rally Championship team.
  • This new Toyota hatchback will have an MSRP of around $30,000 when it arrives at Toyota of Orlando.
  • The 2022 Toyota GR Corolla will offer the same turbocharged 1.6L 3-liter engine found in the Toyota GR Yaris, which means you’ll get 257 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque.
  • It’ll be offered in a six-speed manual transmission at least when it arrives in the United States.

It’s also predicted that the new Toyota GR Corolla will offer stiffer suspension, larger wheels, and bigger and better brakes for improved handling.
