Images of the 2013 Toyota Corolla have surfaced on the internet. The new Corolla looks a lot like the Camry and is radically different from the present model. The new Corolla can be expected to hit the Indian market during the second half of 2013.

The new Corolla gets a new front grille with three horizontal chrome slats with narrow gaps between them. This gives the new Corolla, a business-class like look. The headlamps too, get sharp edges and expect bi-xenon/projector lamps to be included in the headlamp cluster. The inverted trapezoidal shape of the lower air dam gels well with the overall front design.

The side profile of the new Corolla reveals the inclined shoulder line, funky-styled outside mirrors and large wheel arches, giving the new Corolla, a sporty road stance. At the rear, the new Corolla has radically designed taillamp cluster and the highlight is the brake light that extends into the boot lid.

There are no details whether the new Corolla will have a complete design make over on the interior like the exterior. Also, it is yet to be known whether the new Corolla will have powerful engines when compared to the current ones.

The Corolla Altis is an important model for Toyota in India. The Altis has many takers in India as it sells in consistent numbers every month. Hence, Toyota may not take a long time to launch the 2013 model. Do you like the facelift changes of the 2013 Corolla Altis?
