What is Toyota GR Corolla
The Toyota GR Corolla is a high-performance 5-door hatchback sports model produced in small quantities with GR tuning based on the Corolla. The engine is equipped with the same 1.6-liter inline 3-cylinder turbo engine “G16E-GTS” as the GR Yaris, further increased to 304PS. The 4WD system that can be combined is also the same as the GR Yaris “GR FOUR”, and its high performance has already been proven.
In Japan, the base grade “RZ” and the 2-seater model “Morizo Edition” with further enhanced sports performance will appear. However, the “Morizo Edition”, which is limited to 200 units worldwide, seems to have a special application method overseas due to its high value.
Has a contest format been adopted overseas?
At Toyota Canada, due to concerns that the GR Corolla Morizo Edition will be resold on a first-come, first-served basis and by lottery, it seems that measures will be taken to confirm whether the person is suitable to drive the Morizo Edition before purchasing. This is the same as the conditions and examinations that are set when purchasing some supercars and super expensive models.
Of course, the application conditions for the Morizo Edition are not as strict as those for supercars. Currently, Toyota Canada’s GR Corolla Morizo Edition application page has a dedicated application form for answering questions, and Toyota Canada seems to select a purchaser based on the answers to these questions.
