    Pretty much a updated Scion IM, which is a hatchback corolla. No thanks.

    Yeah it's just the updated IM. Not terrible looking, but a bland car overall. Toyota reliability. :sleep::sleep::sleep::sleep:Snorefest.

    I would have pulled the trigger on the current gen Corolla IM if it had leather seats, stronger motor, and the newest safety suite.

    It’s on the TNGA platform which did wonders for the Camry. Honestly looking forward to it.

    Hmm, looks kinda ugly. I think Toyota has some of the ugliest front ends of all automakers.

    I've never owned a Toyota. If this came with a turbo and 40+ MPG highway, then I'd be interested.

    Looks way better than the past ones.

    Given that their last ones were mind numbing to drive... it's be a huge leap for them to just be 'ok'. Toyota, as a brand, has never interested me much... at least not sense the Supra and Celica died off... though as good as the outside might have looked at the time, I never cared for the last gen Celica. I mean... they had to create Scion to drum up interest in folks under 40. Their brand language seems incompatible for car enthusiasts... IMO. I'll admit to having an '89 Corolla for ~6 months a few hundred bucks and sold for the same about 15 years ago for a beater when I lived in Charleston. Other than working... I can't say much else good about it.

    Even now... seeing this and the most recent Camry doesn't pique my interest at all.

    The rear bumper is reallllllllllllyyyyy ugly, outside of that I kinda like it.

    Edit, just noticed from pictures that it has those two little exhaust cut outs at the rear but you can see a single exhaust pipe hanging down on the right side.....

    The rear hatch needs to be more vertical, in my opinion. Fairly aggressive slope reduces the cargo carrying capacity. One of the main reasons to own a hatch is to haul bulky stuff easily. A VW Golf-esque profile (or Volvo C30, etc) would be more practical. My 2c.

    Look nice, but something doesn't sound right if some one asks what car you drive, lol.

    What car do you drive? "I drive a Corolla" ..

    It will be about 160 hp.
    Up substantially from the existing Corolla, but down from the Civic Turbos.
