IAB SCOOP! 2014 Toyota Corolla to be showcased at Auto Expo

Posted on: Oct 31, 2013 - 2:02pm IST

Top-level Toyota sources have confirmed to IndianAutosBlog.com that the 2014 Toyota Corolla would be showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo, to be held in Noida next February.

Sources said that the new Corolla would only be showcased, as production would not commence at the Bidadi plant until much later.

The 11th generation Corolla was revealed in two variants – American and European – in the middle of this year. Production of the European version began at a new facility in Sakarya, Turkey in early July, while the American model started its production run at the Blue Springs plant located in Mississippi, in early August.

Earlier this month, Taiwan became the first Asian market to receive the 2014 Corolla.

The Corolla designated to India is the European version and it is very likely to retain the same 1.4L diesel engine that produces 88.4 PS of power and 205 Nm of torque, and the 1.8-liter Dual VVT-i that is married either to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission with 140 PS and 173 Nm. In the European Corolla, this engine delivers 138 hp and 173 Nm, and the outputs maybe held back a little in the interest of fuel efficiency.
