The Toyota Corolla Trek is the latest edition to the Corolla family and will be priced from £29,225 when it launches with hybrid powertrains.
Two engine choices will be available for the Corolla Trek from launch, with a 1.8-litre hybrid plus a more powerful 2.0-litre hybrid. The 1.8 model will start from £29,225 while the 2.0 model will start at £30,950.
Aimed towards active families with outdoor lifestyles, the Toyota Corolla Trek adds a more rugged appearance to the Corolla line-up. Based on the spacious and efficient Touring Sports range, the Trek adds even greater functionality for people who enjoy outdoor pursuits. The new model is the result of a collaboration between Toyota and Trek Bikes – a partnership that brings together two brands that share environmental values.
Externally, the new Corolla Trek distinguishes itself with a 20mm increase in ride height for improved ground clearance. New black protective wheel arch cladding and under-runs front and rear help to give a more off-roading look. Additional features include a honeycomb grille, bespoke 17-inch machined alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, fog lamps, LED headlamps, and Trek logos in the door steps and tailgate.
Inside, the interior is carried over from the standard Corolla. However unique elements such as two-tone textile upholstery and wood-finish elements on the dashboard help set it apart. Standard equipment on the Trek model includes the latest version of “Toyota Safety Sense” plus a seven-inch TFT instrument display and an eight-inch TFT infotainment screen. Both Android Auto and Apple Carplay operating systems will be supported.
A fleet of 16 Corolla Trek’s was already being used to support the Trek-Segafredo World Tour teams during the European events earlier this year before the season was postponed.
The Corolla Trek will be built at Toyota’s Burnaston plant in Derbyshire when manufacturing resumes after the government lockdown.
