Model Preview

Although 2021 is still a long way off, early fleet ordering guides show the Toyota Corolla is slated to begin production in April of 2020 with an on-sale date in the following June.

If this ends up being the case, it would generally be consistent with the release of the all-new 2020 Corolla. The next several years are set to be a very important time for the nameplate.

With the shift in demand toward crossover SUVs, Toyota has decided to invest in a full redesign of the Corolla for the 2020 model year, bringing an all-new platform, many standard advanced safety features and even a new hybrid variant.

Meanwhile, competitors like the Ford Focus and Chevy Cruze are slated to be discontinued as manufacturers take firm steps to build models consumers are buying in greater numbers.

Will fewer competitors and a redesign create a situation in which the Corolla can excel and shed a perception of being one of the least-exciting choices in its segment? That remains to be seen.

Expect official specs and pricing to become available closer to the on-sale date. This page will be updated as information becomes available.

Key competitors for the 2021 Corolla will include the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra and Kia Forte.
