The Toyota Corolla is no doubt a globally accepted compact car from its very first 1968 model to its latest 2021 model. The Japanese automaker has been offering the hatchback and sedan body style in the United States while adding a stylish and practical wagon version in other parts of the world including Europe. With rumours of a new patent filing by the automaker, a new long roof Corolla Wagon could be hitting the U.S market soon.
The Toyota Corolla station wagon could return to the U.S market soon as a Touring Sports variant of the Corolla
Many do not know that the history of the Toyota Corolla dates back 11 generations before its current 2021 model. It has remained one of the most successful and long-standing Toyota car models to date. Unfortunately, the station wagon body style which is common here in Nigeria and many other parts of the world has never been offered in the U.S since the 1990s. This is why new rumours about a patent filing by the automaker could mean good news for U.S customers looking forward to a Corolla Wagon.

Popular blog sites, CarBuzz, and the GR86 forums revealed the news about Toyota’s new trademark filling to copyright the words “Toyota BZ” and “Capstone” monikers. The reports on the blog sites claim that these monikers have a high potential of meaning a possible Station Wagon (Touring Sports) Corolla variant for the United States anytime after the approvals of the filing. If this report eventually turns out to be true; the Japanese automaker will eventually become one out of a few car manufacturers that offer a station wagon body style in the U.S.
Other automakers like Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and Audi are currently the only players in that segment of the U.S auto market.
