Toyota releases engine details on 2014 Europe market Corolla

By SYF77 on 21 Jul 2013

Toyota has released more details on the all new Corolla destined for the European market. Not only does the car look more sophisticated than the current model, it grew in all dimensions with a measurement of 4,620mm by 1,775mm by 1,465mm (L x W x H). The car is longer than the all new Mazda 3 sedan.

The Euro-spec Corolla will be available with one diesel and four petrol engines.

The 1.4-litre turbo diesel develops 89bhp with a peak torque of 205Nm. Transmission option for the oil-burner include a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed Multi-Mode transmission. The entry-level gasoline engine is a 1.33-litre Dual-VVT-I which generates 98bhp and 128Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. There are two 1.6-litre engines available for the Europe market – a Dual VVT-I unit with 120bhp and 154Nm of torque as well as a Valvematic version with 130bhp and 160Nm of torque. The lower-powered 1.6-litre comes with a six-speed manual transmission or an optional Multidrive S (CVT) transmission.

The range-topper is a 1.8-litre Dual VVT-I unit with 138bhp and 173Nm of torque. The engine is mated exclusively to the Multidrive S transmission.

Should we be concerned about the European Corolla? Yes we should, as sources indicate that the Australian and Asean Corolla share the same version as Europe.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

So the top 1.8L engine doesn't have Valvematic. That's too bad

Diesel and 6 speed tranny sounds like the one to get for Singapore traffic.

When it arrives in Singapore, it will, without fail, be a step backwards in terms of build quality and everything else since Borneo motors is most likely bringing in a Thai-made Altis, not that I am against Thai-made cars but it is a fact that Thai-made Toyotas have sub-par build quality. If only our market's Corolla could be imported from Europe (this model seen here) like the Auris and Yaris, it would be great. Just IMO though.

Any updates as to when the new Corolla will be available here? It will be one of the most important car launches in our local market.
