    New Corolla

    For those of us who can't afford the new Supoora - perhaps the new Corolla?

    Not bad. Looks like a Toyota which is good.

    I just hope it's not as soul destroying as a drive like the current one.

    Needs tiny portholes for side windows, to match the rear one!
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    Looks pretty decent imo, but it needs the roofline to continue a bit further back and not taper off over the rear door, its like they've never tried to put 1year old into a rear facing car seat before. To that end, just square up the hatch itself and make it a wagon and gain the ability to carry stuff...

    you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

    I'm assuming the one people will actually buy have the same 1.8L NA engine that dates to the early 1930s?

    Changing it's designation from 3K to 1ZZ-FE didn't fool anyone.

    I think the 7K-E was the 1.8L which they renamed to 1ZZ-FE.

    I really liked it, until I got to the side view. Something's not right around that C pillar-tailgate-bumper area.

    But hey, it's not boring to look at and hopefully like other recent Toyotas it might be less boring to drive than usual.

    If they install the 6 as in the Blade Master G and imported it into Australia, it wouldn't be a bad car.

    Needs more 2ZZ if it's going to come here.

    Actually, we almost never get the povest of pov specs, of anything.
    UK is The Win for that.
    We don't get Weird Shit that Toyota Oz has no clue how to market, though; the Grand Master Flash Blade G that smee mentioned for example, they would've had no clue how to sell a V6 Corolla for more than an Aurion, "that doesn't make sense it's SMALLER with the same engine! *snorts extra line off marketing-room glass-topped table*"

    Yeah but it wasn't much lighter than an Aurion though, so was kind of pointless.

    Due to 25 year's worth of experience in lame lameness, it doesn't matter how it looks ... I'm going to have zero expectation unless they announce Something Whacky like a performance turbo model or Something Even Whackier like that Grand Master Flash G.

    If it's actually OK for the first time in 25 years, that'll be a Good Thing.
    But it won't be, it'll be the same again, because Scared To Change The Winning Formula (I guess - why would you if it were making as much cash as Corolla? Plus the 4AGE cars probably weren't good in & of themselves, rather just compared to what anyone else was bothering to sell here, and I'm probably wearing rose-tinted glasses).
