Toyota GR Corolla Teased By….Toyota

Toyota’s Instagram page posted a pic of what looks like a normal Corolla, but some Easter eggs suggest it is actually the GR version.

One Easter egg is the time on the dash, G16, which stands for the engine used in the GR Yaris.

One of the navigation routes says GR Four Rd., a possible reference to all-wheel drive. The climate control says 2 68, which could be a reference to 268 horsepower, which is what the GR Yaris makes.

Also, a GR Corolla is in the background of the shot.

This means we might have a good idea of what the inside of the GR Corolla looks like.

Perhaps someday we’ll finally see the whole thing.

    Where's the tach? Even Toyota hybrids usually have a tach if they are marketed as "sporty."

    Sweet. Very much looking forward to this one! The Yaris GR looks awesome from what I've seen of it on YouTube. The Corolla version will be a tinge heavier than the Yaris (which I wish we'd have gotten) but I'm not complaining. Hopefully we get it next fall as a '23. Doubt we'll see it before that.

      If this thing ends up being anywhere near as good as everyone claims the GR Yaris is, there's a chance I'm going to be an idiot and try to get one from the first model year.

    If in 1982 Ford released a new Mustang with 268HP we'd have all lost our minds. Now it's 'meh.' C'mon people, 268HP in a Corolla is pretty darn good.

    Why not just call this the Corolla TRD? Almost nobody in North America knows what Gazoo Racing is. TRD at least has some brand equity. And for the love of God, make this sub-model available for the hatchback and not just the sedan.
