More teaser images of the Toyota Corolla sedan have been released ahead of its unveiling at the end of this week.
The latest images reveal the new four-door small car’s angular LED headlights, front badge and grille, alloy wheels, and lower front intake and foglight design, all of which draw inspiration from the sporty Toyota Corolla Furia concept from January’s Detroit auto show.
Also revealed in the images is a touchscreen infotainment system with internet-based ‘Apps’ functionality.
The new details highlight Toyota’s intention to enhance the sporting qualities of the new Corolla sedan, with the Japanese manufacturer admitting earlier this year the car “must have expressive appeal with improved styling that elicits surprise and excitement”.
At 4620mm long (2700mm wheelbase), 1805mm wide and 1425mm tall, the Corolla Furia concept is 75mm longer (100mm longer between the wheels), 45mm wider and 50mm lower than the current Corolla sedan, suggesting the new model will be significantly more spacious than its predecessor.
The old Corolla sedan continues to be sold alongside the new-generation Corolla hatch that launched in Australia in October 2012.
The new Toyota Corolla sedan is expected to launch in Australia during the first half of 2014 following its US unveiling on June 6.
