After the Toyota Corolla Hatchback, Toyota is now nearly ready to release the Sedan version and they are starting things off with the release of the new teaser which many fans are saying is extra since it is showing us what we already know.

After the premiere of the five-door hatchback and the new-generation wagon, the Corolla sedan's design will hardly be sensational and surprising.

The new Corolla sedan will be based on the TNGA platform shared with the hatchback and estate models that were unveiled earlier this year. The company will officially present it in China at the Guangzhou Auto Show on November 15, 2019. At the front, one can expect a flatter bonnet flanked by slim, J-shaped bi-beam LED headlamps wrapped deep into the front fenders, a rounded nose and trapezoidal under-grille.

These characters won the hearts of both casual readers and hardcore fans, as Lee's works appeal to people's sense of adventure. As the tributes poured in, however, Hammer took issue with how celebrities were remembering the late legend.

The new Corolla sedan is also expected to be lighter and roomier inside than the old version, given its fresh underpinnings. The only mystery with the sedan's design will be the rear, which sadly has not been teased. In typical Toyota Corolla style, the instrument cluster will be analogue with a blue theme. Reports suggest that it could replace the Corolla Altis in India by 2020.

The auto will also not be available with a diesel engine and will come only with petrol and hybrid powertrains.

In terms of kit, the new Corolla will come with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 - a suite of safety features that includes autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, cruise control, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist. It will be making its global premiere along with the China-specific Levin sedan, which is an upmarket version of the Corolla.
