Filed under: Budget , Sedan , Toyota Toyota will launch the 2014 Corolla later this year, and thanks to the ever-leaky internet, a couple of key details about the new sedan have been revealed. Car and Driver was able to uncover these bits of information thanks to someone at a Toyota dealer in Kansas who has seen the car, as well as its order guide, though the dealer’s site has since removed its original posting . We got our first glimpse at the next-generation Corolla’s design at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show , where Toyota unveiled the Furia concept , pictured above. Yes, it looks all sporty and aggressive, but fear not, appliance shoppers, C/D says that the production car should have a couple of Furia bits mixed in with a huge helping of Camry -inspired styling. The 2014 Corolla will reportedly continue to use a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, though the mill has been massaged a bit, adding Toyota’s Valvematic continuously variable valve timing. A four-speed automatic (yep!) will be offered in the base model, though the manual transmission now has six gears, and higher trim levels can be had with a CVT. Both engine output and fuel economy numbers should improve slightly over the 2013 model. Currently, the Corolla produces 132 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque, and achieves 27/34 miles per gallon (city/highway) with the five-speed manual ‘box. Trim levels will now be called base, LE, S and Eco, and a couple of improvements have been made to the materials and equipment offered inside the cabin. Softex leather will be available for 2014, as will a push-button start and a navigation system.
Filed under: Budget , Sedan , Toyota We’ve sort of been wondering when Toyota would finally debut the next-generation Corolla sedan, especially since the current car is getting very, very long in the tooth. We got a glimpse of the new compact’s design at this year’s Detroit Auto Show in the form of the Furia concept seen above, but we figured we’d see the production car by now. According to Edmunds , Toyota will be unveiling the new Corolla sometime soon, and it won’t wait until the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Officials from the Japanese automaker did not state a specific location or date for the new car’s unveiling, but said that the 2014 Corolla is expected to be on sale before the LA expo later this year and that it will be revealed “somewhere in the US.” Toyota did not divulge any details about the new Corolla, and we’re willing to bet that the aggressive lines of the Furia concept will be dulled down quite a bit for the production model. Still, news that the new car is coming sooner rather than later is indeed a good thing. 2014 Toyota Corolla to bow before LA originally appeared on Autoblog on Sat, 30 Mar 2013 12:57:00 EST.

Media Advisory – Toyota Furia Concept to Make Global Debut at 2013 North American International Auto Show
TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 9, 2013 – Toyota released another image of the Furia Concept that will make its world debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Filed under: Concept Cars , Detroit Auto Show , Sedan , Videos , Toyota Toyota has announced that it will debut an all-new sedan concept, dubbed Furia, at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show next January. And while the Japanese automaker has released this video teaser as a way to whet our appetites, we don’t know a whole lot about what, exactly, is in store. So, it’s a sedan, it’s orange, it has some carbon fiber accents like the rear lip spoiler you see in the image above, and there are funky, concept car-spec lighting elements at both the front and rear. It may or may not live in fire based on the footage we see here, too. That’s all we know for now, and our best guess is that this previews some sort of new sporty sedan for the Japanese brand. (Toyota could stand to add a little excitement in its lineup, after all.) We’ll have the full details closer to the concept’s debut at the Detroit Auto Show in a few weeks. For now, scroll down to watch the Furia in full tease mode.
