There are three Toyota GR Corolla models: Core, Circuit Edition, and Morizo Edition. The basic mechanical specifications of each read the same - a turbocharged 1.6-liter three-cylinder engine with 300 hp drives all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. The AWD system is offered in a few different configurations, moving up through the trim levels, and only the bottom two trims develop 273 lb-ft of torque; the Morizo Edition has 295 lb-ft.
The Core establishes a baseline, and as the cheapest GR Corolla, it has the fewest features. It still comes with black 18-inch alloys, automatic LED headlights, LED taillights, triple exhausts, and widened fender flares. Keyless entry and push-button start are standard. Inside, it has a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, aluminum sport pedals, cloth upholstery, manually adjustable seats, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and pedestrian detection. The infotainment system has an eight-inch touchscreen and smartphone mirroring. Many of the Circuit Edition's standard features, such as heated front seats, a JBL audio system, and limited-slip differentials are optional on the Core.
Most of the features that are standard on the Circuit Edition can be ordered on the Core as part of a selection of packages. These range in price from $500 to $2,450 and includes the following features in a variety of combinations: a heated steering wheel and heated front seats, limited-slip differentials, the JBL audio system, and a wireless charging pad. We would certainly add the $1,180 Performance package that includes the limited front and rear differentials. The exterior styling features like the domed hood and big wing are not available on the Core though. No packages are available on the Circuit or Morizo editions, only standalone accessories like wheel locks, cargo solutions, and protective accessories.
