The all-new Toyota Corolla is set to be launched in India in less than a month's time with both a petrol and a diesel engine. We take a detailed look.

 

 

2014 Toyota Corolla Front

 

 

The Toyota Corolla, sold since 1966, is the world’s best-selling car to date. With over 40 million Corollas sold worldwide, the iconic marquee is available in 150 countries with factories for the same spread across 16 locations worldwide. The Toyota factory in Bidadi, near Bangalore, produces the Indian and exports versions of the same and soon will make the all-new 2014 model year Toyota Corolla. Currently in its 11th generation worldwide and 3rd generation in India the Corolla is expected to be launched in May.

The new corolla will feature Toyota’s new design philosophy. The new car at 4,620mm long, 1,775mm wide and 1,465mm high, the new Toyota is 80mm longer and 15mm wider, yet 5mm lower, than its predecessor. The design, highlighting the added length gives the new Corolla a more mature and contemporary look. The swept back headlamps that fuse into the grille add to the premium look of the car. The headlight unit itself is highly detailed with a 4-LED daytime running light setup and a double barrel cluster. Compared to the current version, the new Corolla features a lot more chrome both on the distinctive and large grille and on the headlamp unit making it look more expensive than it is.

Along the side, the shorter overhangs, both on the front section and the rear help give the new Corolla a much sportier stance than before. A distinctive character line that runs from the top of the front wheelarch to the rear lamp cluster helps enhance the sporty stance. The new Corolla will come with both 15- and 16-inch wheel options. The rear of the new Corolla has a clean but wide look. The Toyota X-design influences are present here too with a lot of Lexus-esque design references especially for the tail lamps.
