There exists a new appearance package for the 2020 Corolla on the SE trim: “Nightshade.” All chrome is blacked out except for the badge on the nose, black non-directional wheels, and black door handles. I saw one on the freeway in silver the other day and it didn’t look too shabby.

But of course, while the top-trim XSE succeeds in selling some manuals, the Nightshade will sell zero. Why? It’s a CVT-only trim.

An appearance package for an economy car that is otherwise available with a stick, is somehow sold with no stick? Ain’t that America...

I guess there is some good news: the new color available for the XSE: Galactic Aqua.

Also enjoying being in my 30's and daydreaming of one day being able to purchase... a damned Corolla. That's how you've made it.
