Toyota Safety Sense has been added to the 2020 model and tailored for each market to ensure that the “Corolla contributes to the widespread use of safer cars.” This smart safety tech, which is now a Toyota standard, includes pedestrian detection, lane departure alert, automatic high beams, and a dynamic radar cruise control feature among others to keep Corolla drivers safe.
Also as a new Toyota standard, the sedan is equipped with a Data Communication Module that connects to a Controller Area Network, providing drivers with a range of connected services including an emergency reporting system.
US sales are expected to open in Spring 2019, followed by gradual rollouts across over 150 countries and regions. A version of the model tailored for the Japanese market is expected to launch sometime within 2019. All vehicles will be optimized for their respective market’s customers and roads, making the Corolla one of the most adaptable vehicles on the market.
