The front part especially the headlights have a curved look with an ultra modern dashboard having unique panache about itself. The exterior of the car has new headlights and LED taillights along with lights specifically turned on to have a clear vision in case of foggy environment. According to the sources, the interior features of the car which were camouflaged consist of a spick-and-span three-gauge instrument cluster overriding the recent Corolla’s layout with two-gauge. It has a chrome trim around the corners.

As the new Toyota corolla has the taste of Auris, the most important component of the car that is the engine. It is quite possible that Toyota may put in that as well similar to that of Auris. The naturally aspirated petrol engine with the capacity of 1.8 liter is anticipated to be very powerful and give more mileage than the previous one. The outdated four speed gearbox will be superseded by a six speed one with an option of CTV automatic transmission. Few models may also be manufactured having the capacity of 1.3 liters and 1.6 liters petrol engines targeted to selected markets. It will also have an option of 1.4 liter D-4D turbo diesel engine  generating 90 Bhp-200 Nm. It might be possible to catch the look of the car in the forthcoming Auto Shows as Toyota will start with its production in next few months.
