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.
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.
