Toyota Furia Concept Previews Next Corolla in Detroit [Photo Gallery] [Video]
What’s more, the Japanese automaker admits it previews the next generation of compact sedan that will go on sale in the US in the near future.
“The Corolla Furia Concept is an early indicator of where our compact car design may lead in the future”, commented Bill Fay, group vice president and general manager of the Toyota Division. “It blends a heightened emphasis on dramatic design and modern elements of high technology to generate curb appeal that will surprise a lot of people.”
As a concept, the 2013 Corolla Furia is quite interesting, featuring substantial quantities of carbon fiber, large diameter wheels, LED headlights and rear lights and even a diffuser at the back. However, the production version will be much blander to give what is essentially a family car better resale value. If supposedly leaked photos of a disguised Corolla front end are correct, then we are going to say “we told you so!” in about a year.
