Regardless, the new Corolla is coming out on June 6th and Toyota is trying to drum up something – let’s call it “excitement” – before the big reveal. *sigh*
The new compact will still feature the 1.8L four-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic from the current car. However, on higher trims, you will be delighted with the aural attack of that four-pot on high rev 90% of the time thanks to a CVT transmission. A six-speed manual will also be offered, though I assume the take rate on this transmission will be like that of someone buying ebola samples from the germ lab.
