I am really liking the premium direction that the C-Segment has taken. There is truly no reason why downsizing should force you to give up the refinement or premium features that are found in larger vehicles.

Quick Highlights of the new Corolla:

- 6MT or CVT (with 7 ratios)
- Carryover 1.8L engine (2ZR-FE); eco version offers enhanced horsepower and efficiency (140HP vs 132HP)
- 4" longer in length, significant improvement in rear seat comfort and improved interior quality
- Significant improvement in driving dynamics
- Class-leading features - Bluetooth in base model, available LED headlamps.

Finally, Toyota bringing the corolla into the 21st century and in line with it's competitors. Good to see.

That is what the B-segment and Chevy Spark type cars are for.

I hate the Civic type black 'bumper bar' on the front.

Other than that it looks very nice.

Looks competitive now. What's with that digital clock on the dash? That is so '80s.

If they can make as quiet as the Camry, even if it were an option package, it would help. They say it's "quieter" but we'll soon know.

Traditionally, in my view this segment (all manufacturers) has had a lot more road noise than the larger models. By design, I realize, but the technology is there to be had.

That black front fascia is too much for this older guy. It would easy to paint, though, in body color (Trim Package anyone?) or something complimentary and more low key for those of us who prefer a bit more stealth cool

It would be nice if they offered the fuel efficient engine in the base model, but I guess they will force people to buy $100 in electronic doodads for $3k...
Looks good though, they should bring a true wagon version over as well.

I thought it was a vacuum cleaner from the front. I like the direction Toyota is heading, buy they have to change more than just looks to convince actual enthusiasts to buy their car if they want to appeal to that segment. One suggestion would be to improve the driver's seating arrangement so that a tall driver can actually reach the steering wheel when the seat's pushed all the way back.

I wonder if typical Toyota buyer will like it. Hopefully in still comes in putrid brown with ugly wheels.

I definitely think it looks nice for what it is and hopefully interesting to drive. The last Corolla that I drove that I liked was in 1980's with RWD.

I'm a huge Toy fan and even though I wish they'd bring back the Celica or better yet, the Supra, this isn't too bad looking for a sedan. I like it, they got me! hooked

100% total Honda civic copy. But there will be some great deals on the old body style for sure.

That's a bizarre looking car. The proportions are messing with my head.
