Toyota has revealed what the next-generation Corolla might look like by showing off the Corolla Furia Concept at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
"The Corolla Furia Concept is an early indicator of where our compact car design may lead in the future," said Toyota Division group vice president and general manager Bill Fay. "It blends a heightened emphasis on dramatic design and modern elements of high technology to generate curb appeal that will surprise a lot of people."
According to the Japanese carmaker, the Corolla Furia Concept represents an exterior styling study by Toyota designers that "builds on the brand's product development priority to develop more dramatic, expressively designed vehicles."
The Corolla Furia's design includes a swept windshield with a sloped roofline and pronounced fender flares to help give it a sense of motion even when the car is stationary. The aggressively styled front fascia with its blacked-out grille highlights the sculpted front LED headlights that, combined with the rear composite LED taillights, add a sense of advanced technology to the Furia's exterior.
Carbon-fiber accents adorn the Corolla Furia Concept's wheel wells, rocker panels and rear valance, while the 19-inch alloy wheels are pushed to the corners. Together with short overhangs, these wheels help emphasize the car's long wheelbase.
