European-spec Toyota Corolla revealed
After showcasing the 2014 Corolla for the US market, Toyota has revealed the European-spec version of its bestselling car. As expected, the overall silhouette of the car remains the same while styling tweaks have been carried out largely on the front facia and rear end of the car.

To start with, the Euro-spec 2014 Toyota Corolla gets a prominent chrome front grille while the air intake in the bumper is smaller than that of the US version. The headlights are also bigger and stretch onto the front aprons. The revised grille and headlamps have also resulted in a new bonnet which now has a more muscular dome, the lines of which are designed to flow down from the A-pillars. The front fog lamp housings are also much larger on the new European Corolla.
While the side profile of both models remain identical, the European-spec Toyota Corolla gets turn indicators on the rear view mirrors and new alloy wheels.
On the back, the European Corolla gets a narrower and longer tail lamp cluster that is identical to US model's. There is also a new chrome strip between the two tail lamps. There is, however, no rear spoiler on the European spec car and the rear bumper loses the black diffuser and gains reflectors at either end.
