Toyota announced a Special Edition of their 2021 Corolla Hatchback this week, spicing up the hot hatch market. Targeted towards fans who enjoy bold colors and striking looks, the Corolla Special Edition definitely hits the mark. Equipped with an exclusive body kit and bathed in a stunning Supersonic Red, the car looks like it was blessed by some customization wizards. Toyota is also making the Corolla Hatchback Special Edition a unicorn by producing just 1,500 units for the 2021 model year.

The Hatchback Special Edition uses the same 2.0L four-cylinder Dynamic Force Engine in all 2021 Corolla models, pumping out 168 horsepower. A variable cooling system also helps the car warm up quicker on cold days and cool down faster on hot days thanks to improved efficiency. The Special Edition gets the 10-speed automatic transmission with an added Sport mode and paddle shifters.
