Coolest Toyota Corolla ever for Japan

Coolest Toyota Corolla ever for Japan


Toyota has released the upmarket version of its Blade hatchback in Japan. The Blade is the hatchback version of the new-generation Corolla that is not even available here yet. On sale as of yesterday, the Blade Master and Blade Master G come with the Aurion’s 3.5-litre V6 as standard equipment.

A substantial upgrade over the Camry’s 2.4-litre four-cylinder that is offered in the lower Blade trim levels, the Master trim pumps 276 hp and 343 Nm of torque to the front wheels via a 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters. Sportier suspension tune and larger disc brakes are also part of the package. In terms of appearance, the V6 Blades get a mesh-look grille and model-specific badging.


So this “Corolla” has more juice than a Porsche Boxster, let alone the Volkswagen GTI and the Honda Civic Type-R. But I doubt it will come here.

What do you think?
