These photos of the GR Corolla show what could be the final design. Specs are said to be 300hp, AWD, 6 speed manual transmission and weigh just under 3000 lbs.

This design for the Corolla looks great. Makes sense that it would share some similarities with the GR Yaris' look.

At 1340 kg (2954 pounds) it's much lighter than the standard Corolla hatchback. The manual is 1387 kg / 3060 pounds and the CVT is 1397 kg / 3080 pounds.

I think its more like the low $40k range in the US, a good amount less than the Type R.
the honda us site says ctr starts at $38k, so the gr corolla should be around that price point... i'd assume it will be a hard sell at $40k+

If the GR Corolla is going to be the same price or more than the Type R it's not going do well for Toyota. People are going to stick with the Type R because it's a proven vehicle.

right, afaik the gr corolla will be *slightly cheaper- people are speculating $37k, which makes sense to me...

i just realized that the top spec gr yaris [rz-hp] costs ~$46k in japan, so $50k for the corolla variant doesn't sound that crazy after all.
