Toyota is bringing back the GR Corolla Circuit Edition for model year 2024, the automaker announced.
Available in Blue Flame and Ice Cap color choices, black forged aluminum 18-inch BBS wheels come standard, as well as black side rocker graphics that run up to the stamped GR-Four logo.
The Circuit Edition model keeps its vented bulge hood, GR sport mesh gloss-black front grille with functional brake ducts, and angular LED headlights. Aero details continue around back, with a gloss-black rear spoiler, rear lower diffuser, and triple exhaust. On the inside, Brin Naub Suede and synthetic leather-trimmed sport seats with blue accents, a unique blue striped GR shift knob, and blue accent stitching bring the new-to-2024 look home. A JBL Premium Audio system with eight speakers and an amplifier is also standard.
Material updates from the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing engineering team include mounting bolt changes to the steering gear, rear suspension, and battery ground. Aero updates include an addition of aluminum sheets to the front and rear bumpers, and a change in duct shape to the front bumper airflow outlet.
Under the hood of the GR Corolla Circuit Edition is the turbocharged G16E-GTS 1.6-liter 3-cylinder turbo engine. It delivers 300 hp at 6,500 rpm and 273 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000-5,500 rpm. Just like all GR Corolla models, it is exclusively with a six-speed intelligent Manual Transmission with rev matching.
