With the new GR Corolla Hot Hatch launched for 2023, Toyota has made a splash on its Corolla, and for some lucky buyers – 200 rightly so – there will be an extra spicy GR Corolla Morizo version featuring the Toyota President Akio Toyoda specification.
Toyoda, who is an avid racing fan and may be the official master driver of the Toyota GR Performance Division, initially used the name Marijo as a nickname to avoid criticism and anxiety from the inside during dangerous driving events, racing in Nবারrburg. Outside the company. He finally started using the name publicly from 2007 24 Hours of Nবারrburg, when he was vice president.
For its standard GR Corolla, the power from the standard car’s 1.6-liter turbocharged Inline-3 remains unchanged, but torque has been bumped from the 273 lb-ft to the new 295. Standard 6-speed manual and all-wheel-drive systems are also available, but there is a ratio near the transmission and small differential gears for improved acceleration across the power band.
The car has gone through a significant weight-saving program. Engineers were able to remove about 100 pounds, the carb weight dropped to about 3,186 pounds. This was achieved by removing the rear seat, rear door speakers, rear door window controller and rear wiper blades and motor. The car also had a fake carbon-fiber roof and fake wheels.
The 18-inch wheel has an exclusive matte black finish, as well as a “Toyota Gaju Racing” script on the rim. And the selected rubber is a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
For the chassis, engineers have increased rigidity with two extra rear strut braces, 349 extra spot welds and 20 extra feet of structural glue compared to the standard Corolla hatch.
2023 Toyota GR Corolla Morizo Edition
There are some visual tweaks that set the GR Corolla Morizo version apart from the rest of the GR Corolla lineup. These include the new front brake duct, a flat underfloor and rear lip spoiler. The model also has an exclusive matte gray paint finish, although buyers will be able to choose a lighter color called Windchill Pearl.
Inside, there’s a mix of red and black accents, ultrasound trim, and even better sturdy seats holding holes for a harness. Missing rear seats have been replaced with a pair of braces that add structural support, leaving enough space to fit four tires for one track day.
The GR Corolla Morizo version 2023 joins the core and circuit version models in the GR Corolla lineup. Price information will be announced near the launch in the market next year.
