2013 Toyota Auris




Finally here, the second generation of Toyota's Euro compact.
Our next Corolla will share this car's platform. But not the design.

The Auris has always ben much more modern looking than the Corolla, so don't expect much from the next Corolla.
If this one is as modern as a Toyota can get.
Just like the current Euro Civic, this looks worse than the previous version.
It seems that the design is all over the place.

I just saw the new Elantra GT the other day, which looks 100 times better than this.

We'll see if they can make the Corolla look worse than the current one...

Why is Toyota going back to green dashboards? It looks so dated.

"The Auris has always ben much more modern looking than the Corolla, so don't expect much from the next Corolla."

Toyota has already gone on record to say that the next Corolla will be an incredibly dramatic departure from the expected, more drastic than the Avalon.

Do some research, Vince.

That's dead on the back design of the upcoming Rav-4...

The headlights and grill looks identical to upcoming new RAV4. Especially the new rear lights.

If the Matrix lives on, would Toyota consider bringing this over to the US and badging it as a Matrix?

What's up with the front badge? Why is it different than the rear one, which is a typical Toyota badge?

This is a complete mess. I don't think there's anything that Toyota can do to make me want one. I've grown to despise this brand.

The simplicity of the instrument panel design on this car is just awesome. I've never owned a Toyota, have never even considered one on my shopping list, but if this is the direction they're going to take their design, that might change. By contrast, the layout of Ford interiors is a dizzying carnival ride of gadgetry. Very well done.

I dig this a lot, has clean lines and is not overdone.

Don't forget a whole raft of JDM products.

Americans want boring, and Toyota has delivered what the public majority desire. Don't blame them, blame your fellow countrymen.

Doesn't matter how many and how much people hate Toyota as they claim, sales number speak.

Exactly. They're right up there with McDonald's in quality, repeat customers, and volume. (Even though GM is selling more vehicles these days; and Ford has more respect from people who are into performance/reliability/value). But Toyota has done a remarkable job of moving past the unintend acceleration/faulty brakes/electronics glitches/wrongful death lawsuits.

Exactly. Toyota is the WalMart of cars. Good enough for most people. But not really very good.

The negative comments here are probably from people who are jealous that their own preferred car manufacturer isnt doing as well.
