    2008 USDM Corolla

    Here's what it could look like....

    My Goal: Making it look a bit different with the most minor changes.

    A lot of people think the export market Corolla(recently launched in Europe and China) looks too bland... many speculate that the USDM Corolla will have dramatic changes.
    I did this to show that the most minor trim changes can change the look of the car when viewed as a whole.

    itstill looks bland .. and still looks like a reskin of the old 2001 Corolla ... unless there is something about the engines/tranny or interior materials that we do not know, then this will be a huge dissapointment.. MMazda3 and the Civic ran away from Corrola and this will not change that.

    Looks really good, I am not a big fan of the new Civic and the Cobalt and G5 are really bland and uninspired. I think this one should do very well.

    It will sell no matter what it looks like because it has a long-standing reputation for quality. Even the bland, very dated current version was the eight-best selling vehicle in the US in 2006 (270K+ sold), ahead of the Altima and Cobalt, and I expect we'll see a substantial jump with the refresh.
