Compared to the MY2015 model, the 2016 Toyota Corolla ESport Nurburgring features a new bumper design with aggressive touches and new 17-inch alloy rim design. Otherwise, most of the enhancements are sourced from the outgoing model, which include a piano-black grille, a rear spoiler, a faux diffuser for the rear bumper and stickers of the ‘Green Hell’ on the front wings.

Like the previous model, it has an all-black interior with red accents on the dashboard, door panels and floor carpets. As part of the update, it features a new instrument cluster with a larger multi-info display and a newer software for the touchscreen infotainment system.
