Toyota has something special in store for sport hatchback fans who like their cars with expressive styling and bold colour. Dressed out with an exclusive body kit and striking Supersonic Red paint, the 2021 Corolla Hatchback Special Edition look like it just rolled out of a Southern California custom shop.

And, because enthusiasts who buy factory customs don’t like to see themselves coming and going on the road, Toyota will offer just 1,500 of these red-hot hatches for the 2021 model year.

The Special Edition, which arrives in late summer, makes a powerful style statement while adding the safety and convenience upgrades common to the rest of the 2021 Corolla Hatchback line.

All 2021 Corolla Hatchback models add rear seat mounted side airbags, bringing the car’s total airbag count to 10.

In addition, the 2021 Corolla Hatchback makes Rear Cross Traffic Alert with Blind Spot Monitor standard on the XSE grade and optional for the SE grade with the SE Preferred package.

As on the 2020 versions, all 2021 Corolla Hatchback models come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of driver-assist technologies:

• Pre-Collision System with Daytime/Low-Light Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection, plus Daytime Bicyclist Detection
• Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (CVT only)
• Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
• Automatic High Beams
• Lane Tracing Assist (CVT only)
• Road Sign Assist

Hatchbacks are about versatility, of course, and the 2021 Corolla Hatchback offers more of it with the Enhanced Cargo Space option, available at no extra cost for all models excluding SE Nightshade.

The new feature lowers the cargo floor, adding six cu. ft. of total capacity (to 23 cu. ft.) behind the rear seats. This option replaces the spare tire with a tire repair kit.

For the 2021 model year, Toyota puts the spotlight on fun in the Corolla family, with special models in both hatchback and sedan body styles.

On the hatchback side, the new Special Edition grabs attention with its Supersonic Red paint job, black-painted 18-inch alloy wheels and a bold body kit that beats the aftermarket in style and value.

The body kit adds a sporty front splitter, side skirts, black rear roof spoiler, a rear bumper garnish and a unique Special Edition badge.
