Last year, Corolla became one of the best sellers in the U.S. in the section of compact cars. But, this year, it can be overtaken by one of its major rivals – Honda Civic’s latest generation. In order not to lose this competition, Toyota decided to make some changes in the upcoming version of Corolla 2017.
On the car spy photos Toyota Corolla 2017 that were taken this week during the testing of the new automobile, we can spot a major change done – a modified nose, on the creation of which the designers were inspired by the Mirai model (a sedan that is working on the hydrogen fuel).
Even though the front of the car was camouflaged, it was still possible to see a new grille. It is coming down from the top, exactly like on the Mirai. Also, at every corner there are big grilles. Brand’s designers also remodeled the headlights’ shape adding to them a straighter look. During the testing, the lights in the back were thoroughly camouflaged, which can only mean that there were made some changes to them as well.
We can expect that an updated exterior of Toyota will be accompanied by the modernized interior as well as by advanced technology. It is not known yet whether there will be some changes made to the power train. The updated Corolla is supposed to be presented to the public this summer.
