New Toyota Corolla Furia Concept: Styling and Design
It would be hard to think of a vehicle more different than the current Toyota Corolla than the Toyota Corolla Furia Concept. The Furia Concept appears to draw from a range of styling cues floating around the small car scene, with a swept grille and headlight treatment that is reminiscent of the Honda Civic and an aggressive front fascia that could fit either a compact Hyundai or Ford. Out back, the bumper and splitter offer hints of both the Kia Forte and Toyota's own Scion tC.
Despite these similarities to existing compact models, the Corolla Furia does not come across as derivative. Rather, it is a vehicle of its time, which is not something that could be said for the existing Corolla model. This is what the 2013 Toyota Corolla should look like right now, and Toyota has done an excellent job of incorporating existing ideas alongside a new design language that has yet to be seen on such a small platform from the Japanese brand. The Furia is a handsome sedan that is head and shoulders more attractive than any of Toyota's current crop of entry-level cars.
