Very nice and very clean looks, I like that a lot.Looks tasteful and expensive, but I have to point out the hated by me fake exhausts here. Otherwise very nice, and a choice of 2 Hybrids really ups the game; I see no reason why this should not be a success, already the current models sales figures have gone up significantly recently, thanks to offering a reasonable Hybrid (both in terms of power and price)....

Lots of Mazda vibes at the rear which is no bad thing. Looks clean and sharp; desirable even - now that's something I never thought I'd ever say about a Corolla.

The rear looks like it's having a Hapsburg chin... which is a shame because otherwise the design seems to be decent. Can't wait to see the interior.

Interesting that the centre of gravity will be a lot lower, thanks to the TNGA platform. It's lower, wider, longer, sleeker and roomier. Keen to see the interior but I'm liking the exterior!

Another interesting point is that it has fully independent suspension in all corners, which should set it apart from most competitors.

Actually, already the current model has it in most of it's versions (IMO just the NA 1,33 entry level car and the - probably not on sale anymore - small 1,4 Diesel had a torsion beam), although double wishbones instead of multi link.

Thanks for the info! I think we get different suspension setup here but it may still be all corner independent.

https://www.netcarshow.com/toyota/20...lla_hatchback/

Unsurprisingly, the US model looks the same, just drops the iM moniker. Now simply Corolla Hatchback;

Pictures also show the "non dual paint version", and, more important, the interior;





And, tehre is Apple car play! Finally



Some people might be excited about that:


I can#t help but think that it looks, without the dual tone paint, a lot like the first generation Auris hatchback (the one that th e US did not get)
