Photos of a, potentially, facelifted version of the built-in-Asia Toyota Corolla sedan have leaked out onto the internet.
The images seen here were first posted to the message boards of Chinese website Mobile01. They show a Corolla sedan wearing a dramatically restyled front-end that’s patterned on the X styling theme used on the new Europe-only Aygo city car and the facelifted Yaris hatchback.
The restyle also incorporates a long line of chrome running along the bonnet’s edge, redesigned front bumper and air intakes, and a thin vertical strip of LED lights marking out the bottom corners. The headlight units on this car seem to be practically unchanged from the Corolla sedan that’s currently sold across Asia and Europe.
At the rear, the updated Corolla features greyed out tail-lights with LED brake lights, not too dissimilar to the style of units seen on the facelifted version of the previous-generation Toyota Aurion.
The car seen here may be fitted with a sports package, as there’s a boot-lid spoiler and the rear bumper features vast expanses of black plastic.
The look of this revised Corolla sedan differs greatly from the computer generated vehicle that starred in a promotional video, which aired at the recent Geneva motor show.
For that video, Toyota chose to display a Corolla sedan with a front-end style that’s very similar to the look of the recently facelifted Corolla hatchback.
