The car with Hong Kong and Chinese plates has a different radiator grille, with a black badge behind the Toyota logo and the metal bars stopping either side. Since that car has a blue Chinese plate rather than a black border-crossing plate for cars from Hong Kong, I would have thought that it was a mainland Chinese-built model.

However, the Chinese E170 appears to have the same grille as the car in the main picture.

In Hong Kong Toyota Corolla basically follows Japanese style, because Hong Kong people like Japan.

For reference:

The one in the picture is another version: but I'm not sure if this version is common in North America.

Hong Kong version is usually [E160]. Nearly no E170 is found in Hong Kong.

This is more complex than expected. First, the Corolla isn't sold in France. You can see in the rear view that the french plate has a metal frame with an "optimalfleet.be" marking, which is the Toyota Belgium's fleet sales arm. So, this means a Turkey-built, Euro-spec Corolla provided by Toyota Belgium ?

But then what's with the chinese characters badge below the left rear lights ?

That's an "FAW-Toyota" badge, as seen here :

A badge that the Euro-spec Corolla doesn't have :


The same goes for the VVT-i badges and the chrome trim on the bottom of the doors too. This car must then be a chinese-made Corolla. Except the front bumper has a Euro-spec plate holder. So what could this car be ? A Chinese-spec Corolla fitted with a different bumper, or a Euro-spec Corolla with Chinese badges and chrome bits ?

Given the amount of Toyota involvement and screen time in this movie, I'd go with the first solution.

Edit : there's a "Premium" badge below the right rear lights. It's definitely a chinese FAW-Toyota Corolla.

No idea about that grille. It doesn't match with the ones found at auto.sohu.com :

I suppose it's this one, the grille seems the same. If you look at the available trims there is a 1.8L Premium which could be this specific car, although it's very strange that they shipped a car to France for filming while they could easily take an EU-spec Corolla from some neighbouring country as like Belgium (where they have their European headquarter, moreover).

Anyway, in China there are two different Corollas: this one is the version build by FAW-Toyota, while the other joint-venture GAC-Toyota sells a different one (Toyota Levin) being similar to the US-version http://chinaautoweb.com/car-models/toyota-levin/
