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: 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.
