Corollas equipped with the Apex edition come standard with a 169-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder motor which is paired to a sport-tuned exhaust. Most of the Apex edition Corollas will come with the continuously variable transmission (CVT), but the first 120 of the 6000 which go into production will have a six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching capability. Those with the manual transmission will be based on the SE trim level.The Apex edition Corollas even received a new appearance with a more aggressive-looking stance. A rear and front spoiler with copper accents are also present. The marque even used new coil springs that lower the vehicle by 0.6 inches, adding to the sporty theme.
