Toyota’s mojo continues to rise with the surprise unveiling of a European-designed wagon version of an all-new Toyota Corolla that’s set to take on the likes of the Skoda Octavia, Holden Astra, Renault Megane and Volkswagen Golf.

The sleek-looking Toyota Corolla Touring Sports provides even more practicality than the new hatch, with a 2700mm wheelbase (60mm longer) contributing to what the Japanese carmaker claims is best-in-class rear legroom, and a generous 598 litre cargo area behind the back seats.

The new Toyota Corolla wagon shares the hatch’s front-end styling and has a long, sweptback roofline leading to an angled tailgate flanked by bulging wheel arches.

The interior also echoes the hatch’s fresh and ergonomic design, but with more premium materials as demanded by the European market. As the images show it has the same 8.0-inch infotainment screen and steering wheel buttons for adaptive cruise control, that’s standard across the hatchback range along with autonomous emergency braking.

Set for an official reveal at the next month’s Paris Motor Show, the Corolla Touring Sport will launch in Europe with a choice of powertrains including an economical 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine and two hybrids including the 1.8-litre unit available in the Corolla hatch here and a new punchier 2.0-litre version.

Toyota has yet to reveal pricing or specifications, but, judging by its rivals, expect a premium anywhere between $2500 and $4000 over the hatch if it comes to Australia.

WhichCar has contacted Toyota Australia to see if the Corolla Touring Sport is likely to make its way Down Under, but they’re still to respond. If so, this would be the first new Corolla wagon sold here since 2006.

The 12th-generation Corolla arrived in Australia in July 2018, as five a door hatch. Priced between $22,870 and $31,870, it’s available in three spec grades, Ascent Sport, SX and ZR, each available with 2.0-litre petrol and 1.8-litre hybrid engines. All models come with a choice of six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.

Toyota is yet to announce a sedan version of the new Corolla, however it is continuing to produce four-door versions of the previous model.
