Blackout packages continue to be popular, so Toyota has introduced the new 2020 Corolla Nightshade Edition.
Starting with the sedan, the Nightshade variant is based on the Corolla SE CVT and starts at $22,750 which makes it $700 more expensive than the standard model.
The package adds black badging, a black grille surround and black mirrors with integrated turn signals. The model also has black door handles, black rocker panels and a black spoiler. There’s also a black diffuser, a black shark fin antenna and 18-inch wheels with, you’ve guessed it, a black finish.

The Corolla Hatchback Nightshade Edition is largely identical, but it has headlights with a black inner frame. Furthermore, the list of available colors includes Super White, Classic Silver Metallic and Midnight Black Metallic which is slightly different than the sedan’s Super White, Classic Silver Metallic and Black Sand Pearl.
Pricing starts at $22,290 which makes it $900 more expensive than the Corolla Hatchback SE CVT it is based on.
A Handful Of Updates For The Hatch
Besides announcing the new Nightshade Editions, Toyota revealed a handful of updates for the 2020 Corolla Hatchback. Android Auto compatibility is now standard, while SE and XSE variants gain a SiriusXM All Access trial.
Customers who don’t want the full blackout treatment, can order a newly available black roof. It will be offered on models with a Blizzard Pearl, Oxide Bronze, Classic Silver Metallic, Smoked Paprika or Blue Flame exterior.
Last but not least, the SE variant has a new option which maximizes cargo space. It removes the spare tire and lowers the cargo floor to create an additional six cubic feet (169.9 liters) of luggage space. The package also includes a tire repair kit.
