Toyota has remained one of the topmost and most desirable automobiles globally and in Nigeria as the manufacturer keeps pouring in style with the return of the Nightshade Special Edition for model year 2024.

Based on the SE grade and available on the Corolla Sedan, Hybrid and Hatchback, the Nightshade edition brings an extra touch of character to this feature-packed lineup.

According to the popular manufacturer, the Nightshade’s bold style will feature blacked-out badging and black accents.

It will come with Bronze-finished 18-inch wheels, which also come standard – adding a spark of contrast on each model.

Up front, this unique trim will include a sport mesh gloss-black front grille with blacked out Toyota badges, while the side is treated with black painted sport side rocker panels and black capped heated power outside mirrors.

Other attractive details revolve around the back, with blacked-out rear badges, a black shark fin antenna, rear lip spoiler and lower diffuser.

The Hatchback model adds a two-toned color combination with a black roof, and 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 centre 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.

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 that has a 47 MPG combined manufacturer estimated fuel economy rating.

Under the hood of the Corolla sedan and hatch gas models that sport the Nightshade look is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve 169-hp engine. 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 thanks to a gearset used as a “first” gear for start-off acceleration, before seamlessly handing off to the CVT’s pulley system. Synchronisation of the increasing engine revs and vehicle speed provides a linear acceleration feel.

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.

For music lovers, an available JBL Premium Audio package will bring out the best in any playlist. 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).

Corolla Nightshade models are expected to arrive at Toyota dealerships in the last quarter of 2023.
