Be Made In The Shade, With The Limited Production 2020 Toyota Corolla And Corolla Hatchback Nightshade Editions


  • Exclusive styling amps up curbside charisma for Toyota’s popular compact sedan and hatchback
  • Both models deliver big driving fun, incredible amenities and impressive safety

TORONTO, ON – October 25, 2019 – Throwing shade isn’t always a bad thing. Not when you’re driving the Nightshade Editions of the 2020 Toyota Corolla and Toyota Corolla Hatchback. Built off the already-sporty S-series models, the Nightshade Editions inject even more aggressive styling, with exclusive black-finished body details and badging. So go ahead: go for shade.

“The car we drive says a lot about who we are - and if you enjoy a fun, responsive car that puts outstanding agility and nimble handling at your fingertips, then the Corolla Nightshade Editions are ready for you,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “The Nightshade Editions express the joy of driving a sporty compact with aggressive yet sophisticated styling.”

The Nightshade Editions feature unique black body details that amp up Corolla’s already striking curbside presence. Available in both sedan and hatchback body styles in limited production runs, these models feature black front bumper and rear spoilers, black mirror caps, black door handles and black side rockers. They’re finished with black badges, and ride on unique Black 18” alloy wheels.

Both the sedan and the hatchback offer spirited driving, spectacular style, and impressive amenities. Built off the sporty Corolla S series, these models pack powerful, responsive and efficient Dynamic Force 2.0L inline four-cylinder engines mated to direct shift CVT transmissions and sport tuned suspensions.  In addition, thoughtful elements such as a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, standard sport fabric seat cladding, automatic air conditioning, Push Button Start and a wireless charging system for compatible personal electronics are included.  Information and entertainment is delivered via an 8” touchscreen Display Audio system. 

Safety is also front and centre in both models, headlined by Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 – an advanced bundle of technologies that enhance driver capabilities. Other standard safety features include the Toyota Star Safety System and backup camera.

The 2020 Toyota Corolla Nightshade Edition (starting MSRP: $26,070) enhances Toyota’s popular compact five-person sedan with spectacular style and amenities. The Nightshade Edition exclusive details are applied to an already sporty body, which features dual-tip exhaust, a sport-style front bumper and grille design, Triple J clearance lamps and LED reverse lights and a power moon roof.

The 2020 Toyota Corolla Hatchback Nightshade Edition (starting MSRP: $26,490) applies a similar style treatment to Toyota’s five-person compact hatchback, featuring 60/40 split and fold rear seats to maximize versatility and provide impressive cargo space, all accessible through the hatch. Nightshade Edition details enhance a body featuring bi-beam headlamps, and LED rear combination lamps.
