2015 Toyota Corolla Rumors — New Colors & Fresh Fascia?
The 2015 Toyota Corolla may come with some changes. Although the exterior doesn’t need a refreshment, since the style and appearance of this sedan are fresh, some websites reported that we may expect certain exterior changes. According to some not-the-most-reliable sources, the 2015 Corolla may come with slightly redesigned front fascia, but the infotainment system, gadgets and technology will improve this car in more subtle ways. After the China Auto Show in Beijing this year, the official announcement about the 2015 Toyota Corolla hybrid made in China was heard around the world. This doesn’t mean that the U.S. market will be able to get that hybrid version, but rumors about the 2015 Corolla hybrid now look more reliable. The powertrain of the 2015 Toyota Corolla will be the same. This sedan will be powered by a 1.8-liter inline-four engine. Although there’s no need to change something radically on a fresh redesigned car, the 2015 Toyota Corolla may have some changes regarding the features offered by different trims.
2015 Toyota Corolla Exterior And Interior
There are some reports online, which say that the 2015 Toyota Corolla, along with possible slight refreshment of the front fascia, may get new body colors. One of the mentioned colors is a unique orange, which is quite a refreshment for those who like striking body colors. According to some news, there may be an improved Entune infotainment system, which should enhance the overall comfort level, but that announcement isn’t the most reliable one.
2015 Toyota Corolla Powertrain
As for the powertrain, the already mentioned, 1.8-liter engine is used for this model year, too. This powerplant generates 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. Of course, the same engine installed in the LE Eco version, delivers 140 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque. Both the L and S trim have a standard six-speed manual gearbox. The 2015 Toyota Corolla L has an optional four-speed automatic, while the LE and LE Eco trims have standard CVT, which is optional on the S trim. One of the basic reasons this sedan is so popular is its EPA fuel economy. There are no indications that the 2015 Corolla will have improved fuel efficiency. The 2014 model had 28 mpg/city, 37mpg/highway and 31 mpg/combined with four-speed automatic and six-speed manual transmission. On the other hand, CVT brought a modest improvement, so the results are slightly better — 29 mpg/city, 38 mpg/highway and 32 mpg/combined. The LE Eco, which is a trim adjusted for the best performance when it comes to the efficiency, has 30 mpg/city, 42 mpg/highway and 35 mpg/combined.
