In this weeks Autoexpress it has artists impression (I think) of the next Corolla. (I typed word from word and these are extracts from the mag).
If you spot a Toyota IST in disguse around the Nurburgring Circuit, they're re-fining the suspension settings and it will be on a new platform underpinning the car. Autoexpress say the design of the Corolla makes the 300N/MC the most versatile vehicle plaoform in the world.
The rear is inspired by the IST. Sitting on Toyota's recently developed 300N/MC chassis, the Corolla will also provide the basis for nine fresh models including:
2.2 litre Turbo. Buyers will get a choice of 148 bhp or 175 bhp and these will appear in the revised Avensis line-up as well. Power will be fed to the road via five or six speed manual gearboxes with a CVT semi-automatic also on offer.
A facelifed Verso Corolla is under development but this won't apper untill 2009. A concept hinting at the hatchback is expected to appear at Octer's Toyko Motor Show although theres no word of prices.
