Attention-Grabbing Design

The trim kit of the Corolla Apex Edition is mostly black with bronze highlights. I really like that the body of this car also features a front spoiler, a rear diffuser, side moldings, and fog light covers. These sporty design features are said to aid vehicle stability when driving at higher speeds.

Excellent Handling

The 2021 Toyota Corolla Apex SE comes with a state-of-the-art track-tuned suspension system designed by company engineers who tested and retested the dynamics on a variety of race tracks around the world.

The Toyota Apex 21 is equipped with unique coil springs and highly tuned shocks that allow the car to sit lower to the ground while preventing rollovers. This provides better steering response when maneuvering around corners. Additional stabilizer bars increase rigidity to improve overall agility and increase stiffness.


The Toyota Apex 21 edition is powered by a 2.0-liter Toyota Dynamic Force Engine. The engine pulls its impressive power and efficiency from a proprietary dual fuel injection system. The fuel system combines direct injection with secondary port injectors. An electric motor controls the variable valve timing, rather than relying on oil pressure.
