Is Toyota updating the 2021 Corolla Hatchback? 

The Toyota Corolla is one of the most recognizable names in the entire global automotive industry. It has stood for affordability, efficiency, and more recently, connectivity. When the automaker introduced the hatchback variant a few years ago, they added driving excitement to the list of traits. As more information about the next production year starts to trickle out, people have been calling and emailing the Alamo Toyota showroom to ask, ‘Is Toyota updating the 2021 Corolla Hatchback?’ The Corolla Hatchback platform is still so new, that most automakers wouldn’t be shaking things up too much. Toyota is not most automakers. When the 2021 Corolla Hatchback arrives at the showroom later this year, it could be one of the 1,500 special edition iterations that are being introduced. Let’s take a look at what it will have to offer.

2021 Corolla Hatchback Special Edition 

People have been customizing hatchbacks since they were first produced. The 2021 Toyota Corolla Special Edition will arrive at dealerships with a lot of that work already done. As we stated earlier, Toyota will be producing 1,500 Corolla Special Edition models split between the hatchback and sedan versions. The Special Edition Hatchback will start with the features and equipment of the vehicle’s SE trim, including the continuously variable transmission.  

Additionally, it will have a Supersonic Red exterior paint scheme, 18-inch black-painted 18-inch wheels and a sporty body kit that includes a front splitter, side skirts and a black rear roof-mounted spoiler. A Special Edition badge will be affixed as well. 

What about the rest of the 2021 Corolla Hatchback models? 

Toyota is bringing back the Nightshade Edition for the 2021 Corolla Hatchback, with its many blacked-out trim features and accents. Those models can wear Classic Silver Metallic, Midnight Black Metallic or Super White exterior colors. The same naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine making nearly 170 horsepower will be under the hood. 

Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and Amazon Alexa compatibility will be standard equipment. These connectivity options will join several other high-tech features like a Wi-Fi hotspot and satellite radio compatibility.
