Toyota has revealed the Corolla Furia Concept at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
What's so exciting about this concept? Well, this compact saloon concept provides hints to the styling direction of the next-generation Corolla, Toyota's best selling nameplate since it's inception in 1966. How well this design is received will determine the look of the Corolla in future. The concept represents an exterior styling study by Toyota designers combined with the brand’s design agenda to develop more dramatic vehicles.
The Furia design theme is “Iconic Dynamism,” which is intended to appeal to more youthful consumers. The more provocative, dynamic form is more stable with an athletic stance from 19-inch wheels which are pushed to the vehicle’s corners with short overhangs to help emphasise its long wheelbase.
The Corolla Furia design includes a swept windshield, with a sloped roofline and pronounced fender flares to create a sense of motion - even when the car is stationary. The aggressively styled front fascia, with a blacked-out grille treatment, highlights a pair of sculpted front LED headlamps that combine with the rear composite LED taillight assemblies to add a sense of advanced technology. Carbon fiber accents adorn the Corolla Furia Concept’s wheel wells, rocker panels, and rear valance. The rectangular exhaust outlet is finished with a metal rim which is supposed to add a sense of modern athleticism.
