ThailandThe Japanese automaker introduced the track version, upgraded the suspension system, and tweaked the throttle controller.
Instead of introducing the new GR Sport, Toyota launched the Nurburgring Edition for the Corolla Altis in the Thai market. The special edition celebrates the second year in a row that the Toyota Gazoo Racing team won the Nürburgring, Germany with the Corolla Altis.
The Japanese automaker says that the Nürburgring decoration package is inspired by racing cars, with a different grille, front and rear bumpers. The track-only C-size sedan has tweaked the stiffer suspension, lowered the center of gravity, and added a throttle control box to improve the throttle pedal sensitivity.
The engine of the Corolla Nurburgring Edition remains the same, a 1.8-liter gasoline engine with a capacity of 138 horsepower, an optional 1.8-hybrid engine with a capacity of 121 horsepower. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a front-wheel drive system, combined with a CVT gearbox.
In Thailand, the Toyota Corolla Alits Nürburgring Edition costs $28,500 for the petrol version, while the hybrid version costs from $27,600 to $32,500. While the brother Corolla Altis GR Sport costs $ 29,800.
