The 2020 Toyota Corolla will get an online reveal Thursday evening around 10 pm, and if that's a tad late, not to worry - Auto123 will be checking in on the presentation and we'll have all the details and photos for you bright and early Friday morning!

The new Corolla five-door has been lauded for its hot hatch styling, to the point where fans are now calling on Toyota's GR racing division to produce a performance version, something that a few Toyota execs have hinted at. At the front, one can expect a flatter bonnet flanked by slim, J-shaped bi-beam LED headlamps wrapped deep into the front fenders, a rounded nose and trapezoidal under-grille. There may be a 168-hp 2.0-liter petrol unit which works in pair with a six-speed manual gearbox and CVT. It also remains to be seen how many of these goodies will be offered on the India-spec Corolla.

The sedan should also come with the 8inch display with will support Apple CarPlay and Entune 3.0 Audio system. It rides on a lighter, stiffer platform, a version of Toyota's scalable architecture.
