Get Ready for the 2014 Toyota Corolla

2014-Toyota-CorollaDo you remember when Toyota introduced the Furia Concept at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show? Do you remember all of the excitement, the hype, the teased pictures of the taillights, and the Toyota executive dancing on the stage? I certainly do, especially the dancing executive, and now Toyota is back at it again. This time, the automotive giant has teased us with its latest revision of the Corolla, which is supposed to take many design cues from the Furia. Ahead of its June 6 debut, Toyota has posted a singular image of an extreme close-up of the new Corolla’s taillight. Déjà vu?

Based on the image, it seems pretty clear that Toyota wasn’t lying when they said that the 2014 Corolla was going to take at least some of the shape from the Furia Concept. If you were paying attention, you might have caught other hints dropped about the new Corolla’s design as seen in the Toyota Yundong Shuangqing II Hybrid concept that debuted at the Shanghai Motor Show. This car was also said to have taken many cues from the Furia.

Arguably the world’s best-selling vehicle (depends on whether you ask Ford or Toyota), the Corolla has always been an extremely popular vehicle. It was made to be a more affordable yet still reliable sedan that would have an impact around the world, and it’s done exactly that. The next stage in the Corolla’s evolution would be an attack on a more youthful demographic, who are all about looks and affordability. If Toyota can continue to play off of the new, sharper design of the growing-in-popularity Avalon and keep the same feel of fun and excitement that the Furia portrayed, they shouldn’t be too far off with the new 2014 Corolla. Only time will tell.
