Toyota Corolla Furia Concept Previews Next Generation Of Corollas At Detroit Auto Show


The Toyota Corolla Furia concept car was on display at the Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) and it gives us a good look at what we can expect to see in upcoming redesigned Corollas. As the best-selling car of all time, the Corolla was due for a little sprucing up and Toyota has delivered.


According to Toyota, the new design is supposed to reflect “Iconic Dynamism,” which focuses on a simplified, recognizable look that will appeal to younger drivers. To the rest of us, it means that the Toyota Corolla Furia has a much more dramatic front-end with a huge blacked-out grille, narrow LED headlamps, a shorter hood and a swept back windshield.


The rear of the Toyota Corolla Furia is also gets a slick update with aggressively shaped taillights and metal exhaust trim that add to its appeal. There are also carbon fiber accents throughout that combine with a lower stance, 19″ alloy wheels and a wheelbase that’s nearly 4″ longer to create an athletic and attractively updated vehicle.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. When not drooling over cars, Nicole writes for Wired’s GeekMom.
