If you’ve been waiting to buy a Toyota Corolla, it looks like things are going to get interesting by the end of 2014. Images of the new 2014 Toyota Corolla have surfaced on the Internet and the car looks quite a bit like the Toyota Corolla Furia concept that was shown at the Detroit Auto show.
If you take a look at these production model pictures of the next generation Toyota Corolla and compare it with photos of the Toyota Corolla Furia concept, you can see quite a few of the sharp lines and overall shape have been incorporated in the production model. Of course, some of it has been toned down for aesthetic and practical reasons. Toyota had said at Detroit that the Corolla Furia concept would guide its design for the next generation Toyota Corolla, and it looks like the car is already being produced for testing and evaluation.

The front of the car looks strikingly similar to the Furia concept, although the heavy chrome usage and wider grille is typical of present Toyota design trends. Still the lines are the same. The bonnet is a clam-shell design with muscular creases along it. The bumper and fog-lamps are more in keeping with the present Toyota Corolla’s fog lamp design, but if you notice the headlamp cluster, it has a set of LEDs next to the twin-beams, which could either be parking lamps or possibly day-time running lamps.
The rear of the car follows the same design lines as seen in the Furia concept, but doesn’t get the LED tail-lamp treatment as expected. The tail-lamps are more of the traditional type, although a bold chrome strip running across the boot lid, blends in with the clear-lens portion of the tail-lamp quite nicely. The point which had the dual exhausts in the Furia concept is taken up by inset reflectors in the rather large rear bumper. Regular parking sensors are also quite prominent on the boot.
There is quite a bit of the Camry’s design influence seen in the upcoming Corolla, and the car looks even more premium than the current model. In fact, from some angles it also has some design similarities with the Honda Accord. The car is longer and wider than the existing Corolla Altis, and should be a lot roomier on the inside as well, when it is finally launched. Also read: Upcoming all-new cars for 2013
