Toyota Corolla facelift vs. 2013 Toyota Corolla – Old vs. New

Posted on: Mar 28, 2016 - 10:24am IST

Toyota has revealed the 2017 Toyota Corolla (facelift). Here’s a comparison between the facelifted Toyota Corolla and the 2013 Toyota Corolla.


The redesigned headlamps have new LED clusters and include new LED light guides. The upper grille has been made smaller while the lower grille has been enlarged and made full-width. The new bumper is much more aggressive, thanks to the C-shaped endings, while the resculpted bonnet adds more to the elegance.

The 2016 Toyota Corolla features new headlamps and taillamps with LED treatment.

Moving to the sides, the door handles have a new chrome finish and there’s a choice of new design 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, differences are much lesser compared to the front. The chrome strip is much thinner and the taillamps adopt LED clusters. Three new colour choices will be available: Platinum Bronze, Tokyo Red and Earth Bronze.


Unlike the 2013 Toyota Corolla, the 2016 Toyota Corolla will be available with Toyota’s new safety and assistance technologies pack called Toyota Safety Sense. In the Corolla, the Toyota Safety Sense incorporates Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Road Sign Assist (RSA) and Automatic High Beam (AHB). The increased safety should bring down the insurance costs of the car.
