I don't hate the looks, but the powertrain is the same carryover they've been carrying over for years... So to me, it's still a tired old box.

At this point, everything you see in/on the Corolla is a gimmick because there's absolutely nothing new about it or the way it drives. BORING.

Clicking on it to find a damn Toyota sucked bigtime. So i said so.
At least with the 'Corolla' in the header, everyone will not be expecting a Focus.
And WTF is the total advertising for a Toyota doing in a Ford page anyway? Like some mole crawled out from under a rock to show his true colors?
Sorry the whole post is one giant shitcan of Corolla love. On a FORD FOCUS website that is total crap.
Every car forum I've been on always has posts about the competition which is good since it's good to be not so ignorant to what else is olut there beyond Fords.

I do not mind a 'post about the competition'. A full page of advertising in detail is not the same thing.

It's easy just to ignore the threads then if you don't want to see anything other than Fords but I have no problem with these threads. I'm on a couple Toyota forums and you get lots of threads about Jeeps and Nissans and even Ford trucks and I rarely see any complaints over those.

I would think the customers who liked the exterior design language of the 2008-2011 Focus would find this new Corolla exterior design language to their liking.
To my eye there are elements of the two cars that similar, with a little Dodge Dart thrown in.

I would have thought Toyota would have used the same face and rear design as the new Euro Corolla design



Not my cup of tea as far as design, but I was surprised to read LED low beam and 6 speed manual for North American spec Corolla.

Can some one Photoshop the 12" of wheel gap out so we can see if it has any potential?







I think it looks pretty nice compared to the old generation, And if they made the dash more sculpted like the Focus I'd consider it.
