Toyota’s 2024 Corolla Nightshade Edition Returns
The Nightshade Edition of Toyota Corolla is staging a comeback for the 2024 model year, following a hiatus in 2023. The Nightshade Edition, based on the SE grade, will be available on the Corolla Sedan, Hybrid, and Hatchback models, adding an extra touch of character to the Corolla lineup.
Nightshade Edition: Bold Style and Enhanced Features
The Nightshade edition is renowned for its bold style featuring blacked-out badging and black accents. The 2024 model also introduces bronze-finished 18-inch wheels as a standard feature, adding a contrasting spark to each model. This unique trim includes a sport mesh gloss black front grille with blacked-out Toyota badges. The side is treated with black painted sport side rocker panels and black capped heated power outside mirrors. Additional eye-catching details, like blacked-out rear badges, a black shark fin antenna, rear lip spoiler, and lower diffuser, continue to adorn the back.
The Hatchback Model: Extra Dose of Personality
The Hatchback model adds a two-toned color combination with a black roof. For an extra dose of personality, a large black Vented Sport Wing is available. All Corolla Nightshade models are built on the Toyota New Global Architecture C platform (TNGA-C). Its super rigid structure, low center of gravity, and standard Independent MacPherson type strut front suspension with stabilizer bar and multi-link rear suspension endow all Corolla models with exemplary handling agility and ride comfort.
Corolla Hybrid Nightshade: Fuel Efficiency and Power
The Corolla Hybrid Nightshade model will be available on both the Front Wheel Drive and electronic on-demand All Wheel Drive equipped models. The system on AWD equipped models employs a separate rear-mounted electric motor to power the rear wheels when needed. All Corolla Hybrid Nightshade models will be powered by a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve 138 hp engine paired to two electric motor generators. This combination has a 47 MPG combined manufacturer estimated fuel economy rating. This makes the Corolla Hybrid Nightshade a perfect blend of power and fuel efficiency.
Sedan and Hatch Gas Models: Performance and Fuel Economy
The Corolla sedan and hatch gas models sporting the Nightshade look have a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve 169 hp engine under their hood. The sedan model has a manufacturer estimated rating of 34 MPG combined, and the hatch model has a manufacturer estimated 35 MPG combined rating. The gas-powered sedan and hatchback use Toyota’s standard Dynamic Shift continuously variable transmission for a distinct performance feel.
Luxury and Safety: Standard in All 2024 Corolla Nightshade Models
All 2024 Corolla Nightshade models will feature Sport seats with sport fabric inserts, 4.2-inch color Multi-Information Display (MID) with customizable settings, Toyota Audio Multimedia with eight-inch touchscreen, and Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 standard. A JBL Premium Audio package is available for music lovers. An available SE Convenience Package adds a power tilt/slide moonroof with sliding sunshade and Qi wireless charger to the inside, and safety with Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
The 2024 Corolla Nightshade models are expected to arrive at Toyota dealerships in the Fall of 2023. Additional details and pricing for the 2024 Corolla Nightshade Special Edition and the complete Corolla lineup, Hybrid, gas, and hatch, will be shared later this year.
