DETROIT — The Toyota Corolla Furia Concept, which previews the 2014 Toyota Corolla, debuted on Monday at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

The next-generation Toyota Corolla promises to be longer and lower than the 2013 Toyota Corolla. While the Corolla Furia Concept stands out with its surprisingly robust appearance, the real story lies in the numbers.

The concept rides on a 106.3-inch wheelbase compared to a 102.4-inch wheelbase on the 2013 Corolla, with an overall length of 181.9 inches versus 180.0 inches. The concept has an overall width of 71 inches compared with 69.4 inches on the 2013 Corolla, and an overall height of 56.1 inches versus 57.7 inches.

The beefy Corolla Furia Concept rides on 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels and features pronounced fender flares and a blacked-out grille treatment.

Other details include sculpted front LED headlights and rear composite LED taillights. Carbon-fiber accents are featured on the Corolla Furia Concept's wheelwells, rocker panels and rear valance.

Toyota did not provide powertrain details on the Corolla Furia Concept or spell out when the next-generation Corolla is scheduled to hit the market.

The 2014 Toyota Corolla targets the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra. The current-generation Corolla was lightly updated for 2011, but has been around in the same form since 2009.

Edmunds says: The Toyota Corolla was one of the pioneers of the modern compact-car segment. The Corolla Furia Concept lifts the veil on what Toyota is thinking in terms of a major redo.

    Well that's not gone well has it?

  • This car bares a strong resemblance to the Honda Civic, which is fine, except IMO this design looks awful.. Toyota, what are you doing ???

    I currently own a toyota corolla. While there are snazzier options out there like the Kia Forte, Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra I can tell you my 10 year old Corolla is bullet proof reliable. I would love to purchase a new Corolla but the current model doesnt excite me enough to sign on the dotted line. I have been hoping toyota would fire thier styling team and take notes from every other manufaturer and from the looks of the Furia Concept they finally did. If Toyota has the balls to stick to this concept I will be first inline to purchase this Corolla. Its your turn Toyota. Bring this car to the masses and avoid the water down process and you will have a winner and a sale!
