There is not much to discuss regarding the interior of the new model of Toyota Corolla due to its heavy camouflaged disguise. We anticipate that there will be more use of soft material and leather patterns. It is also expected to carry over some dashboard and steering wheel design from Toyota Camry. This new generation model will be built on the same platform utilized by Camry and Prius, the Toyota TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) Modular design.

The platform provides smooth vehicle handling, as well as body rigidity due to its low center of gravity. From the spy shots, one can get the idea of slim and sleek LED headlights and Instead of the pillar mounted side mirrors, the new Corolla will have a door mounted mirrors. The grille was also fully covered and only the lower honeycomb air intake was left open for breathing out. Overall, the car looks more round in shape as compared to its recent model.
