After revealing a sporty looking Toyota Corolla for the US market earlier, the Japanese car maker has released the first pictures of the European-spec Corolla with exterior styling changes and mild interior changes
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.
The interior of both cars are roughly the same. Differences being, the European has all black interiors unlike the dual tone interior of the US-bound model. The Euro spec car also gets a sportier instrument cluster with round dials that have a more upmarket feel, dual zone climate control and new seat upholstery.
Overall, the US-spec Corolla looks sportier, but the European version’s chrome garnish and bigger lights will appeal more to the Indian car buyer at large. The new Toyota Corolla will only make its way to India by early 2014, so now would be a good time for people to plan out their finances if they are on the lookout for a sensible D-segment sedan.
When it makes it to India, the 2014 Toyota Corolla is likely to be powered by the same range of engines that are doing duty under the current generation Corolla Altis that consist of a 1.8 litre petrol engine and a 1.4 litre turbocharged diesel engine. Both engines will be updated for enhanced efficiency and driveability. The petrol engine will have the option of being mated to a seven-step CVT autobox or a six-speed manual gearbox, the 1.4 litre engine will be mated to six-speed manual gearbox.
