Toyota Australia continues to announce updates to its model range, this time for at least six models – the Corolla, Yaris, Yaris Cross, C-HR, Camry and GR Supra. It comes shortly after the release of the MY2022 RAV4 (one of Toyota’s best-selling models Down Under).
The Corolla hatch and sedan ranges will see the most improvement, especially for the hybrid electric version. It is now 8 kW (11 PS) higher than before, bringing the combined peak output to 98 kW (133 PS). It will also have a state-of-the-art Toyota multimedia system with USB-C connection, new alloy wheels, a raft of new colors, and a slightly improved Toyota safety sense system.
Automaker Yaris Cross did not elaborate on the changes, saying only that it would be offered with ‘advanced technology and fresh style’. The latter refers to interior trim enhancements, which now include black leather-accent furnishings in certain variants. Yaris Cross, Yaris Hatch, C-HR and Camry will all get new colors and finishes.
Last but not least, the GR Supra. Customers will eventually get a six-speed manual for the sports car, which will come with a range of new alloy wheels, modified adaptive dampers and other performance-related upgrades. The six-speed iMT also features automatic rev-matching and the sound of a specially synthesized engine.
All updated MY2022 models will be rolled out in the second half of the year Shawn Hanley, Toyota Australia’s Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations, said: “Toyota will keep our customers informed of key changes in our critical line-up and we encourage our customers to talk to these Toyota dealers of their choice about these improvements.”
