The 2023 Toyota GR Corolla 

There are lots of other components to making a track car fast and fun. Often, these features are part of the car’s inception.  So when I found out I would be driving the 2023 Toyota GR Corolla on a track, you can imagine where my low expectations came from.

How did the 2023 Toyota GR Corolla Change my Opinion?

I expected a slightly spicy Corolla that simply tolerated a race track. As it turns out, the GR Corolla is not your average Corolla. Rather than just getting by, it managed to shine on the track.

Powered by a 1.6L 3-cylinder turbocharged motor making 300 horsepower, the GR Corolla is a completely different beast. Toyota’s engineers reviewed every component of the standard Corolla hatchback to revamp it into the GR Corolla.

Dazzled by What’s Standard on the 2023 Toyota GR Corolla

The 2023 GR Corolla comes in Core, Circuit, and Morizo trims. The "base" trim level called Core starts at $35,900. But, I hesitate to call it the "base" trim level because there is nothing basic about it.

Even at its entry trim, the GR Corolla comes standard with a sporty 6-speed manual transmission paired with Toyota’s advanced GR-FOUR all-wheel-drive system. The GR-FOUR system has selective drive modes to change the drive bias.

The Core Trim Level

Starting at $35,900, the Core trim GR Corolla is adorned with most of the same aggressive styling cues as the higher trim levels. It has functional venting and aerodynamic elements. The exceptions are the hood vents and larger spoiler available on higher trims.

The Circuit Trim Level

The Circuit trim of the GR Corolla is a special edition for the 2023 model year. Starting at $42,900, it will have the same drivetrain as the Core but weigh a little less. Also, it comes standard with red-painted brake calipers and Torsen limited-slip differentials.

And the Morizo!

That is where the Morizo comes in…my favorite! Starting at $49,000, the Morizon is stripped down almost to bare bones. It has just enough luxuries to keep you comfortable on the way to the track.
