2023 Toyota GR Corolla MORIZO Edition
Two months after the official debut of the high-performance GR Corolla, Toyota announced an even more capable version with the track-focused GR Corolla MORIZO Edition, limited to 200 examples for the 2023 model year. Named for GR Master Driver and Toyota President Akio Toyoda, the GR Corolla MORIZO Edition features more power, a stiffer chassis, lighter weight and stickier tires. Powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine, the MORIZO Edition shares the same 300 horsepower rating as other GR Corolla versions, although engineers retuned the engine to produce 295 lb-ft of torque at 3250 to 4600 rpm — a 22 lb-ft increase. The MORIZO Edition also receives an exclusive close-ratio intelligent manual transmission, a GR-Four all-wheel-drive system with selectable 30:70, 50:50 and 60:40 front-to-rear torque split, and dual limited-slip differentials with different gearing.
