Toyota revealed a new aggressive looking concept with flared wheel arches, carbon-fibre accents and 19-inch alloy-wheels at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The sedan concept called the Corolla Furia teases the new design language of Toyota; also giving us a bit more details of the all-new Corolla sedan expected later this year.
The Furia features a blacked-out front grille connecting the LED headlamps; the front bumper is big, wide and angular with almost hexagonal form. The overall effect is very aggressive and unlike Toyota designs – the face of this concept has an almost evil smile. The fenders are bulging and along with 19-inch alloy-wheels make the car look a lot bigger. The wheelbase is also 4-inch more than the current Corolla. The rear gets all LED treatment with twin exhausts and a sporty diffuser.
Toyota has not divulged any details about the engine powering this concept, nor about the extra features. The upcoming all-new Corolla is expected to the first car to be based on this design language – of course, it will be toned-down a bit and lot of carbonfibre and LED bits will disappear. But if Toyota manages to keep it close to the concept, it will certain do wonders to their image among the young buyers.
