New 2021 Toyota Corolla Gets Sporty Apex Edition

2021 Toyota Corolla Apex

The Toyota Corolla continues to be one of the most affordable, practical, safe and well-equipped cars on the market. For the 2021 model year, the new Corolla will be available in limited run Apex and Special Editions. Whichever trim you choose, you can still rely on the comfortable cabin and drive of the Corolla along with a long list of safety features with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. Now standard across the line is the addition of Android Auto™ to the Apple CarPlay® and Amazon Alexa integrations with an 8-inch touchscreen.

The 2021 Toyota Corolla hatchback Special Edition features an exclusive body kit and head-turning Supersonic Red paint – there will be only 1500 units available for the very limited Special Edition. The Corolla sedan Apex Edition adds a sport-tuned suspension, chassis and optional summer tires for improved grip and superb handling around corners, making it the quickest Corolla yet. The Apex will be a little bit easier to snag at 6,000 units, but if you like to drive stick, you’d better be quick, as there are only 120 stick-shift models available.

The 2021 Toyota Corolla Apex Edition also features an exclusive body package to accentuate its sporty vibes and styling. This aerodynamic kit features bronze accents, side moldings, a front spoiler and a rear diffuser aid to help with high-speed stability. Opt for the available rear spoiler to attract even more attention. Available in the Corolla SE or XSE, the Corolla Apex CVT features a 10-speed automatic with Sequential Shiftmatic steps, paddle shifters and Sport Mode. Its exclusive first gear provides for a distinct drive with even better acceleration. If you’re lucky enough to get the manual Corolla SE Apex edition, you’ll appreciate the automatically adjusting engine revs in the 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission.

To fully cement its place in the heart of any driving enthusiast, the Toyota Corolla Apex edition was track-tested around the world. Stiffer, track-tuned suspension and stabilizer bars help reduce body roll and increases damping force. New coil springs lower the vehicle by 0.6 inches and give you better cornering and steering response. Special flow-form, cast aluminum 18-inch wheels reduce its overall weight by 2.2 pounds per wheel as well as help with brake cooling. Most people will probably only see – and hear – the Catback exhaust with its 3.5-inch stainless steel tip and bold, throaty tones. Choose from a Cement, Super White or Black San pearl exterior with Black Sand Pearl roof, available only on the Apex edition. The Corolla Apex XSE also gets heated front seats and an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support.

All new 2021 Toyota Corolla SE and XSE models get a 2.0-liter Dynamic Force Engine with 169 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. Or opt for the 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, which debuted in 2020, and get a massive 53 mpg*! New safety features for 2021 include 10 total airbags, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert with Blind Spot Monitor, and Automatic Engine Shut-Off.
