The sporty-ish SE model is getting its own special edition to commemorate its joining the “extended Corolla Hybrid family,” according to Toyota. It will be available in both FWD and AWD trims and will come with some red exterior and interior trim accents. These red splashes should play well against the three available colors (Ice Cap, Midnight Black Metallic or Underground). I’m assuming these are white, black and gray respectively. Buyers will also get 18-inch glossy, graphite-colored wheels.

Toyota says the Corolla Hybrid, which follows other AWD hybrids, uses a separate rear-mounted electric motor to power the rear wheels when the system detects slip from the front wheels. The company also says the system will improve cornering agility by reducing understeer. Unfortunately, there is no news about the drift mode yet.

Internal and External Changes
