Toyota confirms Corolla revival to replace Auris

Toyota Corolla

Toyota is reviving the most famous nameplate in automotive history.

The Corolla holds the record as the best-selling car worldwide and the Japanese brand has confirmed that its new C-segment models will bear the historic title.

Replacing the Auris, Toyota’s new hatchback, saloon and estate model will be called Corolla.

Dr Johan van Zyl, president and CEO of Toyota Motor Europe, said: “Adding to Corolla’s renowned quality, desirability and reliability, it delivers the more emotional values that our customers aspire to, such as a distinctive design, interior refinement, rewarding driving dynamics and powerful yet efficient hybrid electric powertrains.

“There is no better moment than the launch of the upcoming new generation model to reintroduce the Corolla name to our C-segment hatchback and wagon.”

The new Corolla Touring Sports wagon will have its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show on October 2, appearing alongside the new hatchback.

Both models will be presented in hybrid electric form.
