Toyota is expanding the Corolla range with a new Trek model, offering a raised ride height and extra exterior protection.
The new model is available in the Touring Sports (estate) body, with either a 1.8-litre or 2.0-litre hybrid engine.
Prices for the rugged-looking Corolla Trek start at £29,225 on-the-road.
The Corolla Trek sits 20mm higher than a regular Corolla, for improved ground clearance. Protective wheel arch cladding and under-runs front and rear add to the enhanced styling and provide greater protection.
There is also a new honeycomb grille, bespoke 17-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, kick-activated tailgate opening, LED headlamps and Trek logos in the door steps and tailgate.
Inside, Trek models feature a two-tone textile upholstery coordinated with decorative wood-finish elements of the dashboard.
Standard equipment includes a seven-inch colour TFT display in the instrument cluster, Toyota Safety Sense and an eight-inch TFT infotainment screen which supports both Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
Drivers can choose from a 1.8 VVTi petrol-hybrid engine which gives 122PS, or a 2.0 version with 184PS. The engines produce 113g/km and 121g/km CO2 respectively, attracting 25% and 27% BIK taxation.
The new Corolla Trek will be built at Toyota’s plant at Burnaston, Derbyshire, UK when manufacturing resumes.
