Toyota Corolla Model Changes
With the 2020 Toyota Corolla being such a complete, award-winning sedan, it made sense that Toyota didn’t want to make too many changes for the 2021 model year. However, there are a few tweaks that make the 12th generation 2021 Corolla an improvement over the models of the past, beginning with the now-standard inclusion of Android Auto™. Adding to the already efficient performance of the Corolla is a new automatic engine stop-start feature, while rear-seat side airbags add more security to an already incredibly safe sedan. You’ll find new options throughout the different Corolla trim levels, however, the all-new 2021 Toyota Corolla Apex Edition is the most visually stunning option available, with unique badging, wheels, and a special edition body kit—not to mention a performance-tuned chassis boosting its performance as well.
