Dare I say it, but that looks pretty damn nice.
These pics are apparently from Poland, so details may be different from US-spec, but most likely this is the basic body we'll get. Not nearly as radical as the Furia concept, but it does look more substantial than the current car. The front pic is at such an odd angle that it's hard to judge proportion...it makes the grille look massive.
I have to stop this idiot from deminishing my credibility every time he posts because my usernsme is in his sig.
I just can't seem to get behind this new Toyota design, which started with the New Camry.
I mean, I know it's cleaner than old designs, but the whole "headlights blend into swoopy grill" thing just doesn't hack it for me.
Either way, it looks much better than the old one. I rented a few of those, and they were truly terrible cars (from an enthusiast standpoint).

That gray bit is just molded vinyl, with the "stitching" embossed in the same material. It was SO cheesy. The top-line model gets real stitching, but they should have just made the low-rung models grained plastic with no attempt to look like leather. Otherwise, the interior was okay aside from some switchgear that's over a decade old, but....
The Corolla is not meant to be a Zero to 60 King, is not meant to sport stitched dash or leather seats. It is meant to be a point A to point C ride, trouble free with good economy.
People want it the way it is and that is why it sells so well and is listed on the guiness book of records as the world’s best-selling car!
Why mess with success????
I think it looks dandy the way it is for what it is....
