      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 never thought I'd live to see the day when a corolla is more visually interesting than a civic.

      I hate Toyota, but that looks damn good. Successfully mixed swoops and edges.

      To no surprise it's still safe though. I can't picture Toyota turning their bread and butter into a Molester or other offbeat vehicle. Maybe they'd take their chances if they still produced the SR-5 though.

      I'm just excited they stopped doing the blister parking lights. Those things ugly.

      I...like it... if the Rav4 is anything to judge by the interior should be full of win as well.

      Watch it still use a 4AT thou...

      Looks somewhat similar to the new Avalon, but downsized.

      Still better than the 3AT that was in my '93! Actually, this is the best looking Corolla since the '93 E100.

      Anything is an improvement over the previous model, but this is a mess of a design IMHO. Just because it is better looking than the last Corolla doesn't make it attractive.

      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).

      A lot of manufacturers are confusing style for design these days.

      Now that I stare at it more, I see a lot of Accord design elements there.

      Whatever? Regardless of what TCL thinks, the Corolla is one the best selling small cars in the US since 1852. So it does matter. And this new design will sell like RedBull on the Jersey Shore.

      Having gotten some seat time in a Rav4, its new interior is pretty cheeseball unless you step up to the limited and get real stitching.

      Yes, whatever. As in, I don't really care. But by all means, let that offend you somehow.

      I'm sure it will be a complete snooze to drive, but it doesn't look bad at all. I'll be very interested to see what has become of the interior.
