Although the new Corolla won't be seen for another two years, a couple of graining photos showed up yesterday which foretell the future of Toyota's "compact" sedan.

The styling is obviously influenced by the Yaris, with a few cues swiped from the current Camry to add some family resemblance. We can expect the new Corolla to grow in every conceivable dimension, as the new MC platform, which will underpin many upcoming Toyota models, allows a large degree of flexibility. Rumors of a coupe offering are also circulating.

Power will likely come from a 2-liter, inline-four, with approximately 150 hp being channeled through either a five- or six-speed manual, with the option of a CVT over the standard slushbox. Suspension upgrades will probably include the ditching of the rear torsion beam setup in favor of a new multi-link arrangement.

A rear, three-quarters shot is available after the jump.
