Toyota's compact is no longer conservative.
Can the staid, sensible sedan become sporty and stylish?
no effort :/
I'm perplexed: does it cost more money to design/style a better looking car? What is up with Toyota? Oh, that's right...millions of people will buy it anyway.
Would it be too much to ask to see good photos of the i.p., front dashboard??
It could be my monitor screen, but the new Corolla look a lot like a taller, thinner, less swoopy Mazda. That grill-bumper front end is not gettin' it. My last Toyota was in 1987-- a Celica GT. Nothing seems to have changed much since. And why would anyone ordered a CVT trans with an egine under 2-liters? Plus an $800 transportation fee tacked on?! Aaaacck!
Looks like someone slapped it in the mouth. Will the swelling go down?
The perfect car for the non-driving majority of drivers. Even includes all their driver interfering electronics.
Adnane J'e : check!
Thanks, Mr. Jordan. Your piece was written with just the right mix of slap and tickle. It didn't fawn, it didn't rage and even-handedly provided useful content.
superb sexy design
Looks like a Kia
Looks old already.
And I thought the current version was ugly, Hard to believe they could make it worse, but they have
Maybe the brake pedal IS wooden...so it can be recycled ?
Looks like their should be a tongue hanging out below the bumper.
Hardly any torque for that much car to move. Also , torque peak is way high. Give me a smaller turbo-motor with a six-speed.
Not much HP either. Combined with a rubber-band CVT , it`s a yawner.
I think you gave the least-exciting car you could find to the least-capable journalist you could find. Have you ever looked at a car and wondered how it got past so many people working at the company, intact? Me, too. I sometimes read articles like that. Look, I'm not asking for Lord Byron or even Brock Yates, I know it's the *Corolla*, after all, just find someone who's not the journalistic equivalent of... well, apparently, the new Corolla.
it totally looks like a Dodge Dart or a Ford Focus...made in China...
ford focus 2008... at first sight !?
Looks like a prius and a civic got together to have an illegitimate child....
I like the Corolla, but the power train options suck and they still use a 4-speed transmission. Dodge Dart for me.
Don't care for it either.
Looks exactly as ugly as the rest of the cookie cut cars out today.
I like it.... I'm just gonna have to get a little used to it? Though
I'll wait for the Mazda 3 but the back seat legroom will probably be laughable.
As always, nothing original from TOYOTA
"Hello there Dodge Dart...er...I'm sorry, I thought you were someone else."
It's a good feeling when the Japanese are now copying American designs....even if they were more-or-less copies to start with, I guess.
I'm still crossing my fingers in hopes we get the Auris
Looks like a Dodge Dart.
Ummmm.... "Boring" comes to mind.
c'est une bombe!!!!!
Looks like a Chevy.
awsm and all are chhuu... Real car for real man
This is why Ford Focus is winning
Looks like Dodge and Hyundai really got into their heads
I love both of my Corrollas!! Especially my 33MPGS! I like it! More Lexus looking in the back!! Finally a car for younger people!
Are they losing sales to the Civic? That's what the front end reminds me of, a new Civic. But Jake said it correctly, the car for those who don't care.
Great job Toyota copying the Dodge Dart's design!
Terrible! Same old stuff just with a new front and rear end. They did not put too much effort on the sides. Mazda 3 is the new game changer.
The new Rav 4 looks like a Mitsubishi in the front too. Toyota designers need to find their own distinct look.
That was the first thing I thought when I pulled up the pic, looks like a Dart!
That animal in the background looks better than this.
Is this a joke?
Dodge Dart / Mazda 3.
Spot-on, no more or less than I expected The Corolla continues to live up to its name. Otherwise, one quibble: The NUMMI plant is in Fremont, not Milpitas.
It needs to be a hatchback.
the corolla designers............... go back to the drawing board.
the 2010-2012 model is better.
pas mal !
@Deron Lewis Stop insulting illegitimate children!
