The twelfth-generation Toyota Corolla was introduced in 2018. Given the six-year-long lifecycle of the series, the Toyota Corolla should retire in 2024. It is expected that the thirteenth-generation model will replace it in 2025. We expect the Toyota Corolla Hybrid 2025 to be a hybrid.
2025 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Review
Toyota sedans are bolder and more classy than ever, whether it’s the Crown flagship, the Camry, or the popular Corolla. There are still some models with more sporty fascias, but overall the look is maturing. Our exclusive rendering below shows that we expect the Toyota Corolla 2025 to sport a more sophisticated and intense design.
The striking front end is more formal with slim headlamps and an upper grille in its upper portion. This fits in with the new Hammerhead design philosophy. The lower grille serves as the main cooling source and is larger and more imposing. This grille gives the sedan a more sophisticated appearance. The new bumper features muscular contours at the sides that communicate power and enhance road presence.
The roofline on the sides is identical to the previous model. New and more stylish is the greenhouse. It features a new belt line, which starts straight and ends with sharp curves. The 2025 Corolla’s rear should have slimmer combination lamps, new bumpers, and a brand-new tailgate.
Engine & Specs
The future Corolla could borrow the TNGA C platform from the fifth-gen Prius. This platform upgrade should result in a lower center of gravity and larger 19-inch wheels. The redesigned car will have more reinforcement which should result in increased rigidity, quietness, and strength.
The redesigned model will feature a Hybrid version, just like the old car. The next-generation Toyota Corolla could have an electrified version that uses the 1.8-liter 2ZR/FXE engine-based series-parallel hybrid system. Toyota increased the combined powertrain’s power output from 121 to 138 horsepower in the second quarter of 2022. The updated version was introduced in the 12th-gen Corolla hybrid variant in the U.S., with the MY2023 upgrade. It seems unlikely that there will be another performance update in the next two years.
The company also introduced the fifth-generation Prius’s newly revised powertrain in other markets. There could be efficiency-related minor tweaks to ensure that the redesigned car has a better EPA-est. Fuel economy is better than the previous model’s combined 50 MPG (FWD)/48 MPG(AWD).
2025 Toyota Corolla Hybrid Release Date & Price
To Elon Musk’s dismay, the Toyota Corolla remains the most popular car in the world. It will likely remain so for quite some time. This super-popular car sold more than 1.12 million units in the last year. These cars were sold in more than 222 000 units in the US. This generation was released in 2018. A new version could be available as early as next year.
Although the above illustration is likely to be optimistic, the next Corolla could be inspired by the 2023 Prius. It may also get a radical redesign. Although 222 000 units is still an impressive number for a compact sedan, it’s not as impressive as the more than 304 000 sold in 2019. The Model 3 was more popular than last year’s Corolla, according to Tesla. There were over 240 000 Model 3s sold in the US. This is a car that was sold for more than $47 000 in 2022. The Corolla has a base price below $22 000 in the US.
Toyota could make a huge push for the next generation. A more modern design would be the best way to go. Toyota might offer a hybrid version, or at least in the US. This effectively makes the next Corolla a cheaper Prius sedan. To stay competitive, they’ll need to improve their electric vehicle program. The Model 3 could sell more than 350 000 units per year in just a few years.
