Stud: Toyota Corolla Furia Concept
Well, well. What do we have here? A hot looking Corolla? Do those words even belong together? Yes, they do. The Toyota Corolla Furia Concept–the Corolla part was added at the last minute–is a sneak peek at the next generation Corolla, due to come out later this year. And it’s a better peek than you may realize. The profile is pretty much spot on, the bumper cut lines look realistic, and even the windows look like they can go up and down. Sure, the crazy carbon-fiber trim, out-there headlights and grille, and the ludicrous orange paint won’t make the cut–unless a rumored Furia special edition gets approved. But for all intents and purposes, this is the real deal. It all ties back to Akio Toyoda–scion and CEO of the company–and his promise to stop making boring cars. Few vehicles epitomized that staid styling more than the Corolla, and Toyota gets a solid nod from us for doing something daring with its compact sedan. We can’t wait to see the final version.
So those are the studs of the show, as we see it. But what about those duds? What put us off? Keep reading to find out.
