Looking slightly less bland

Purported images of the 2014 Toyota Corolla have surfaced the Internet.

Noticias Automotivas published a few scans from a Japanese brochure showing the new Corolla which as you can see will not get a revolutionary design. Nevertheless, it does look slightly better than the current model, with the front fascia looking similar to the European version of the Auris, while from the sides it's the familiar design with clean lines.

Most of the dashboard components are borrowed from the Euro-spec Auris but with less buttons. The side vents are now square and a two-tone black-beige look for the dashboard will be available.

The spy shots of the 2014 Corolla tell me Toyota have eliminated the upper glove box. It's a sad, sad day, as my '09 will most likely be the last Corolla I buy. Other makers haven't the identity crisis Toyota seem to be having. Makes no sense they'd get rid of the super-handy upper box, as they've retained it for their Japanese version, called the Corolla Axio. Well, it's been fun, Toyota. So long.

I'm pretty sure this is a computer rendering of what someone thinks the new corolla will look like. The badge is flush on the red car but the camo car has a sunken badge. The red car has very stretched back headlights while the camo car has less rake. The fog lights are slightly different. I'm really hoping for a sedan that looks like the Auris. The red one is ok but I'd like to see what the artist can do for an S model.

Looks good for its purpose. Not bad looking.

Toyota went conservative on the design, I guess why mess with a sales success.

@ Benz_man: you wrote: "Tell me this, if it wasn't named "Corolla" and it had a Pontiac badge on the front..." Your comment reminded me: The Chevy Prism (my neighbor had one) was a rebadged Corolla and I think it did not sell as well as the Corolla though fundamentally they were the same cars!

They were almost exactly the same car. GM and Toyota shared development on the cars and built them in the same NUMMI plant that Teslas come from now.

looks just like the auris in front and the camry in the back. nice look, and i'm guessing that there replacing the matrix with a corolla wagon, or the auris wagon is the new matrix. I agree with DTM, no originality what so ever, they seriously need to upgrade this car to elantra or jetta status, its still in the baby stage.

The new Corolla hatch was released in Australia at the end of 2012 and from the reports I have read it seems to be a much better drive than the outgoing model. It is also a much better looking car, but so similar to the new Hyundai i30 from the back.

It's just good judgement that Toyota designers don't listen to the Junk that Ya'll go on with on here. It's as if you all expect every car to be a sleek looking Hi-Po Auto that has a track pack chassis set up and and every conceivable Rev Head go fast, tail out, loud looking/sounding mod out there. When will the Enthuists realize that there are people that buy cars that don't actually visit sites like the ones we here do (Yes, I'm one of you & I do understand) but all they want is a reliable, comfortable and safe conveyance that doesn't necesarily stand out like (the preverbial)dogs balls and is cheap to own and run. Toyota IS no. 1 because they know how to keep thier customer base happy and coming back for more. They obviously know how to put together cars we here can enjoy (like the 86) that are desirable yet accessible to to the masses. Which is something that DTM & Benz man's obvious favourite products can't acheive. If BenzAudBeemer bought out a Car like 86 they would still want $80k plus for them I'm sure. And don't even start me on the (Look good for 5 minute) Korean cars...Watch them go backwards this year with next to no new models up for release. Kia have even said that the growth they had last year will not be repeated in 2013... Why don't you guys try thinking about other people's ideal vehicle and not just what you want...Rant Over, Ya'll have a good day!!! :)

Simple example, Corolla still has a 4-speed auto... Its about bang for the buck, and the Corolla is dead last on that list.

But No.1 worldwide in the Sales race (and really, isn't THAT what it's all about in this class of car...?) Btw, the car featured here will almost certainly have a CVT with a 7 (count them...) speed Manual mode... as does the new model hatchback right now.

No 1 meaning...its the most sold vehicle over ALL its generations, not this current one (which is the only one that has been below average; not because the car has gotten worse, but because the competition has gotten better). And, a CVT has no "speeds", no matter how fast & clever the hydraulic controller. Thats just marketing hype. Tell me this, if it wasnt named "Corolla" and it had a Pontiac badge on the front, would you still be making this many excuses for it?

Well der... Cvt has no speeds? Well, that's why I said "in manual mode". Artificially added or not, thats the number of changes that exist when you select "s" on the transmission ... Makes me wonder why you mentioned that the car has a 4 speed auto when clearly the car described will not... Did you google that info..? Maybe you should have bought yourself up to speed about the car having a Pontiac badge cause that might be a bit difficult given that brand doesn't exist now... Btw which Benz do you desire and will never own.. SLR,SLS? Or maybe a mid 80's 190E will do just so you can say you have the 3 pointed star out front of your ride... Try googling the word "pretentious" Mr "Benz Man" you might find that info useful ... And btw, I don't believe I made excuses for the world's best selling vehicle brand's best selling car, I don't need too...I merely mentioned that not all car buyers have the same interests or impulses..

Wow, I read your full post on your wall and noticed you decided to get personal, and try and insult me, vs giving any type of intelligent argument to back up your opinion. If you notice, ive done nothing but list factual examples of how the current Corolla is inferior to its competition and people only purchase one out of brand recognition vs it being a smart buy. I personally hope the updated model will fix many of these flaws and place the Corolla back in the running for best in class. However, no matter how I FEEL, the fact is that the current Corolla sucks pretty badly, compared to its competition, and if it wasnt a "Toyota Corolla" the buying public would have shunned it years ago. Im just going to skip explaining why the CVT "speeds" thing is irrelevant in this discussion, not enough time or space... My name is "benz_man" because Im a Mercedes technician. Being extremely well informed on cars pays my bills every month. What does being marginally informed do for you?

I do think, however, that Toyota may finally do a really decent drivetrain upgrade for the new Corolla--a model that could surprisingly make its debut at either the Chicago or New York auto shows later this year. I'd like to see Toyota offer the Corolla in the USA with the 2.0-liter Valvematic engine rated at 155-160 bhp and a six-speed automatic or manual as the only drivetrain choice.

The current Corolla is the WORST in its class (by a pretty significant margin). Toyota really needs to step its game up. Corollas are selling on the name alone now. Anyone who actually test drives one against the competition is a fool to purchase one new.

Yes they are good, never said they weren't. Everything else is just better...MUCH better. The Corolla (arguably) ruled the 90s compact class. Only competition was the Civic, because it was more fun to drive. But by 2005 the Corolla was stale. Cruze, Dart, Fiesta/Focus, 3, Civic, Elantra, Rio, Lancer, Sentra, Impreza, Jetta... Not just better, but significantly so. More standard features, more available features, more interesting design, more fun to drive, equal if not better mpg. The Corolla has them all beat in dependability, but I imagine so...its built like a leftover from the last decade. It had the SX4, Cobalt and Caliber WELL beaten though, I guess that's some consolation...

Corolla has dominated South East Asia, Taiwan and Macau for a few decades, with a great reputation of inexpensive, lightweight and super reliable.

My '09 S is the best car I've owned, in terms of options, comfort, handling (yes, handling), and for all the stuff I can put in the trunk. What gets me about this new one is that they've taken so much away that is available on the current version. Give it, take it away; give it, take it away: it's EVERYWHERE today, with some exceptions, namely the Hyundai Elantra, the new KIA Forte, and Dodge Dart (based on the Alfa Giulietta, which is much loved in Europe). Well, this example is why competition is good for car buyers.

Yaaaawn... They have some of the best minds in the automotive world and this is the best shape they could come up with for the next corolla? After looking at the Sonata and Optima this is quite frankly, Pathetic.
