Toyota have announced four engine options for the new Corolla in the European market. As we’ve discussed the new Corolla at length in past stories, let’s jump right into the engine options.

The base Corolla gets a 1.33-liter Dual VVT-i engine (the same engine powers the iQ, the smallest Toyota in the world) that makes 98hp and 128Nm. Paired to a six-speed transmission, it delivers a fuel efficiency of 5.6L/100km (17.85km/l).

New Corolla is produced in Turkey for Europe. Indian launch is scheduled for mid-2014.

The second variant is the 1.6-liter Dual VVT-i which is rated at 120hp and 154Nm with a fuel efficiency of 6.6L/100km (15.15km/l). The third variant, a derivative, is the 1.6-liter Valvematic engine which puts out 130hp and 160Nm with a fuel consumption figure of 6L/100km (16.66km/l).

The fourth and most powerful petrol engine is the 1.8-liter Dual VVT-i that is married to a Multidrive S automatic transmission. The engine here delivers 138hp and 173Nm with a fuel consumption of 6.4L/100km (15.62km/l).

Incoming model is 15 mm wider and 5 mm lower than the old one. The wheelbase is stretched by 100mm.

The fifth and most important engine would be the big-selling motor in India. The same 1.4 D-4D turbodiesel from the current generation takes its place on the incoming Corolla too. The unit develops 89hp and 205Nm to return a fuel economy of 3.8L/100km (26.31km/l). This engine is also available with Toyota’s six-speed Multimode transmission (that uses an electronically operated clutch) and Stop-Start motor.

The Corolla goes on sale in the coming weeks in three variants namely Live, Active and Lounge.

    “The fifth and most important engine would be the big-selling motor in India. The same 1.4 D-4D turbodiesel from the current generation takes its place on the incoming Corolla too. The unit develops 89hp…”

    89hp Whyyyyyy??? Even Hatchbacks such as i20, Punto, Vista come with a 90hp engine. When someone is spending 15+ Lakhs how can you offer a 1400cc engine with 90hp.

    I wonder buyers in this segment aren’t looking at the Spec?
    or
    They are ignorant about these things?
    or
    Is it the TOYOTA Brand that makes buyers over look this thing?

    Wonder how this thing working for T???

    Shrawan can you throw some light on this?

    Cheers,

      I own a Toyota Corolla Altis, it is now 3.5 yrs. old machine. Please note it is not only the power of the Motor, what matters is how well it is meshed to the Gear Box. I live in Pune & face no problem when I need the power on the hills. the car returns excellant 19 KMPL. it is silent, low NVH levels. what else do you need.
