    Extensive standard equipment on full model range

    Availability of three types of LED headlamps

    New HMI combining 10” Head-up Display, 7” Multi-information display and 8” central touch-screen

    Availability of connected services



Largely fittedas standard on High grade models and available as an option throughout the new Corolla model range, a comprehensive range of comfort and convenience technology is available to enhance life on board for both the driver and all cabin occupants.




New technology highlights include:




LED Headlamps:A range of three, grade-dependant LED front lamp clusters includes a triple LED parabola unit type headlamp, a Bi-Beam LED headlamp with AHB, and –unique to Hatchback and Touring Sports variants- an LED headlamp with Adaptive Automatic High Beam.



Adaptive Automatic High Beam:Thanks to a matrix LED system, beam areas occupied by preceding and oncoming vehicles are automatically shaded, maximising the time during which the driver can use the high beam setting for optimum visibility. The system also varies the width of high beam projection according to vehicle speed. During times of low beam use, it automatically adjusts the beam cut-off line to offer the largest possible area of illumination without risk of dazzling the preceding driver. Adaptive Automatic High Beam also incorporates a cornering lamp function to improve visibility through bends in the road ahead.



Colour TFT Display with 3D-Effect:The driver’s meter cluster is equipped with a 7” Multi-information Display offering a choice of digital and analogue speedometer modes. The panel may also be switched to display a 3D-effect, in which the dials appear to float in mid-air.



Head-Up Display (HUD):Its position and brightness adjustable via the steering wheel switchgear, an optional 10” colour TFT Head-Up Display –the largest in the segment- projects various driving-related information and warnings onto the windscreen glass within the driver’s field of view, such as speed limits, navigation prompts and an eco-driving indicator.



Toyota Touch Multimedia System:The new Corolla’s 8”, full colour, touch-screen centre console display features the latest Toyota Touch® 2 with Go multimedia and navigation system. The overall user experience of the improved operating system is enhanced by pinch, zoom and slide operation, and the addition of multi-contextual One Box Search. Sharpness and contrast of the screen now are similar to that of a tablet and allow for improved readability, even in direct sunlight.



eCall Emergency Call System:eCall provides drivers with assistance during an incident when the airbags are deployed. It will automatically contact national emergency services, providing essential information such as vehicle location and the number of occupants, and ensuring that vehicle occupants will be able to communicate with the emergency services operator even if seriously immobilised.



eCall also allows the vehicle occupant to contact the emergency services directly via a one-push button. The call is made using the vehicle’s in-built SIM, with no charge to the owner.



Connected Services:Connected services will also be offered on the new Corolla. This all-new application makes numerous convenience and peace of mind features available to customers, including Last Mile guidance, Send to Car navigation, Find my Car, Driving analytics and Maintenance Reminder.



JBL Premium Sound System:Hybrid versions of the new Corolla Hatchback and Touring Sports may be equipped with an 8-speaker JBL Premium Sound System. The speakers -including JBL’s iconic, A pillar-mounted horn tweeter- have been specifically tuned to the acoustics of the Corolla’s notably quiet cabin. The system incorporates Clari-FiTM technology which supplements the frequencies that are lost on compressed audio files -such as MP3 or streaming audio files- in real time, restoring the sound quality and stereo mix as closely as possible to the original recording.



Wireless Mobile Phone Charger:A wireless charging system allows vehicle occupants to recharge all Wireless Power Consortium (WPC)-compatible mobile telephones simply by resting them on a dedicated pad located in front of the gearshift lever.



Panoramic Roof:The panoramic roof for Hatchback and Touring Sports models features two glass panels, the front panel sliding to give a maximum opening of 272 mm. A mesh deflector reduces wind noise when the panel is fully open, and the roof is fitted with an internal electric roller shade.



Kick sensor-activated Tailgate Opening:Unique in the mainstream segment, a hands-free kick sensor is now available for the opening and closing of the Touring Sports’ power tailgate, activated by sliding a foot under the central area of the rear bumper. The tailgate now features a one-touch, close and lock button, and its height when fully open can be customised.



Simple Intelligent Park Assist with Automatic Braking (SIPA):The system uses a rear camera and ultrasonic sensors on the front side-bumper to identify viable reverse and parallel parking spaces. It will then automatically apply the correct sequence of steering angles for the parking manoeuvre into the target space; all the driver needs do is control the vehicle’s speed. SIPA automatically activates the braking system, ensuring the safety of parking manoeuvres.
