How the Toyota Corolla Is Changing in 2021

The Toyota Corolla is the best-selling car of all time, and it’s no wonder why. Released in the 60s, the Corolla has been one of the most affordable and reliable vehicles on the market for over 50 years. In 2020, Toyota released a completely redesigned Corolla. So how is the Toyota Corolla changing in 2021? Find out below!

Apex Edition

Toyota is making 6,000 Apex Edition Corollas, available in Cement, Super White, and Black Sand Pearl. The Apex Edition comes with a suspension that’s 0.6 inches lower, which will reduce body movements when the car takes corners. Dampers with shorter springs will also be included to help the body control during cornering.

Another feature of this edition is a set of new 18-inch alloy wheels that weigh 2.2 pounds lighter at each corner than those on the 2020. Designed specifically to cool the brakes, these wheels allow you to drive longer without the car overheating.

New Smartphone Integrations

With Apple CarPlay already included in the 2020 version, the 2021 Corolla adds smartphone integration using Android Auto. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa will assist drivers with navigation, phone calls, and text messages while you’re on the road. As is expected these days, SiriusXM is also available in all 2021 Corollas.

Airbag Updates

The 2021 Toyota Corolla includes 10 airbags, beating out the 2020’s 8. The new airbags are located on the rear sides of the vehicle, providing additional safety for passengers traveling in the back of the car.

Powertrain Options

The Apex Edition does not come with an increase in power from 2020, but it does have two powertrain options: there’s a 4-cylinder, 1.8-liter engine with up to 139 horsepower and a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine with up to 169 horsepower.
