Toyota offered the vision of her next generation Corolla sedan, which will appear on sale at the end of 2013, showing the Toyota Furia concept on Monday at Detroit Car Exhibition.
The Toyota Furia wheelbase of 4 inches is longer than that of the current Corolla and Furia for 2 inches longer in general. Putting the wheels to the corners usually has advantages in the dynamics of control and the space of the cabin, but has a tendency to reduce the trunk. In addition, Furia is wider, but the current Corolla is higher.
In a Toyota press release calls the language of modeling Toyota Furia “cult dynamism…, which uses pure and simple superficial elements to create a confident, decisive and recognizable visibility addressing more young consumers.”
How close to Toyota Furia to Corolla, which is now being made? Dedicated to Toyota’s faces said there would be some changes. In a press release of photographs show paper number signs on which it is written “Corolla” in large letters and below the inscription in a smaller font – “Furia concept”.
And of course not all elements will reach production. For example, Furia goes with 19-inch wheels, which will not clearly be installed on the production version. Standard Corolla will go with 15 or 16-inch wheels to choose from. Very expensive tires from special polymers are installed on Toyota Furia, which will also not be available on the Corolla, due to the price: it can be compared only with the cost of rubber for trucks, the prices of which can be viewed on the Autograd-NN website.
Critics noted that Corolla symbolizes Toyota’s need to move from sloppy modeling, which loses in comparison with bright compact sedans like Ford Focus, Mazda 6, Hyundai or Kia.
Toyota previously conveyed Corolla to accessible to many Lexus and the design turned out to be pretty good. Now it seems that Toyota decided that young buyers require more intriguing design.
Toyota sold 290.947 Corolla cars in 2012, which is 21 percent higher than a year earlier, when Tsunami in Japan reduced the flow of spare parts. From a year before the Japanese tsunami reduced the flow of inventory.
