TOYOTA is giving the estate version of its British-built Corolla a more outdoor feel with the launch of a leisure-oriented Trek model.

Aimed at those with outdoor lifestyles, thenew Corolla Trek adds a more rugged appearance and greaterfunctionality to the Touring Sports range.

Priced from £29,255, the Trek has a 20mm increase in ride height, protective wheel arch and front and rear cladding as well as a honeycomb grille, 17-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, kick-activated tailgate opening, LED headlamps and Trek logos in the door steps and tailgate.

Inside, the car comes with two-tone seat coverings and wood elements in the dashboard finish.

The new model is the result of a collaboration between Toyota and Trek Bikes whose cycle racing team is supported by the Japanese car maker.

The car is available either with a 1.8 VVTi petrol-hybrid motor which develops 122 horsepower, or the company's new 2.0-litre hybrid powertrain which has 184hp on tap.

The two engines produce 113g/km and 121g/km of CO2 respectively, and 25 per cent and 27 per cent BIK taxation. Both are rated for vehicle tax at £165 a year.

In 1.8 guise the Corolla Trek is priced from £29,225 with the 2.0 option starting from £30,950 - a premium of some £2,000 over the regular Touring Sports models.

Like other versions of the Corolla, the Trek is to be built at Toyota's plant at Burnaston in Derbyshire.
