    2014 Toyota Corolla Leaked

    This is the 2014 Toyota Corolla
    Carstyleblog
    Feb 5 2013


    Two photos of what is very likely Toyota’s next generation Corolla have been leaked and floating around on Toyota enthusiast forums. The car shown appears to be an asian spec model, which will differ only slightly from the version that will eventually be launched in North America to replace the aging tenth generation Corolla currently on sale.

    Looks much better than the current one on the outside. I really don't want to buy any Toyota, so I wouldn't be interested...but if it the looks plus they update it with at least a 6 speed automatic (or better) and a brand new engine, it would be very interesting.

    Too bad it doesn't look more like the concept. I don't know if it's a shadow but it looks like there is an extraneous character line below the C-pillar.

    So here's how it seems most concept cars go to production. First they have their best people from the design studio do the concept car. Then they have their regular staff come in and look at the new concept car and commit it to memory. Then the regular staff goes back to their own studio and tries to come up with the same thing.

    I think it's the only explanation.

    It does not look bad. Looks like the tech quotient will be taking a huge leap. Self-parking ala Focus from the looks of the front sensors. Wonder what the infotainment will be like. Number of gears in the transmission. Wonder what the fuel economy numbers will be.

    that IMHO is more important than looks as long is it is not offensive for this segment

    A lot better than the current model, but still too dull when compared to the concept. This car will mainly appeal to the people who want a reliable car that will get to point A to point B without any thrills or frills.

    Still can see the 1991 Corolla body hiding underneath. The C pillar really shows it - including the botched character lines: they were parallel on the concept - no longer. The old-as-Moses platform will not allow that.

    I cannot believe I actually expected Toyota to stick to its word and bring out a game changer. They promised the next one will not be phoned in .... this does not entice confidence. "They kicked up the sideline of GLO into a kink!" does not inspire any awe, when the proportions are still the same as they were for the past TWENTY TWO years.

    So...the company that brought dull and boring to the masses has "leaked" pictures of their latest Carolla, Camry, or whatever it is?



    I'm sorry....I tried. I really tried. I wanted to have some kind of comment. Maybe even something funny. But I just don't care.

    This car will continue to dominate the segment for a looong time.

    not my hypothesis. I do believe the awkward transition from concept to production lies sqqarely on the fact that the designers, no matter how talented, had to craft a new skin on a 22 years old platform. If you look at the hard points, they are the same as they ever were .... this is the same car, with a new skin. The concept needed a new car, new platform, new hard points, new proportions. The designers did not get any of that.

    When I read the headline, I thought that I was going to read about another recall.
