For those unaware, the Toyota Corolla is in for a redesign in its 2013 model year, and the Japanese automaker is currently testing it overseas. How does Motorcars Toyota know this? If we were to say that we're employing a group of secretive spies to photograph the next-gen compact, we'd be lying. Rather, the test vehicle was simply spotted by a lucky bystander who happened to snap a couple quick shots of it.
Nonetheless, the pictures that our staff saw were enough to get us excited. The redesigned Corolla was seen sporting a hatchback body style (but we can safely expect a sedan variant), and it boasted some heavy camouflage in order to hide the finer points of the vehicle's reworked elements. This makes perfect sense, though, as Toyota doesn't want the vehicle's new look to surface before their official reveal.
However, no amount of camo can stop a well-trained eye from spotting some of the changes that Toyota has in store for the Corolla in 2013. So what has changed? First, there's the front-end grille. It's unique V shape caught our attention almost right off the bat. Meanwhile, other elements, like the headlights and body lines, are clearly inspired by the redesign that the 2012 Toyota Camry saw.
We don't know about you, but hearing this is more than enough to get us excited to see what else the Toyota Corolla has in store for the 2013 model year. For more details as they emerge, make sure to stay tuned. Everyone here Motorcars Toyota in Cleveland Heights is dedicated to keeping you informed!
