The 2014 Corolla as we had said earlier has been derived the from the Furia design philosophy. While it is a complete departure from the current vehicle in terms of aggressive appearance, it is however, more conservative than its American counterpart.
It gets a square design in front with sharp lines for the bumper, grille and the hood. The blacked-out headlamps and light cluster (now featuring an LED insert) flow upwards into the sloping bonnet which has prominent creases on the sides.
All four wheels have extremely flared arches and the doors slope forward on the side. At the back, Toyota has retained some of the aggressiveness from the American-spec car due to the wrap-around tail lamps. The rest of the rear looks like it has been designed based on the current Camry sedan and features a large number of bulging lines
The Toyota Corolla has a relatively conservative design philosophy for the both the American and European spec car. Design bits are expected to be in beige with standard fabric for the seats. However, the top-spec variant is expected to get fake wood inserts as well beige leather upholstery trim for the seats.
Standard features across variants are expected to include driver and passenger airbags, ABS with EBD, rear AC vents, parking sensors and electronically internally adjustable,parking sensors,touch screen infotainment system as well as electronically
The engine line-up will be the same as before- a 1.8-litre petrol unit and a 1.4-litre diesel engine. The former produces 138bhp and 173Nm of torque while the latter produces 87bhp and 205Nm of torque.
The diesel has a six-speed manual while the petrol can also be had with a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
