Did Nihon scoop the next Corolla?
Japan-only, DRIVER magazine had a full four-page spread on a new Toyota called the "Orius" and judging from previous renderings, it shares a striking resemblance to what has been assumed to be the next-gen Corolla. The family likeness is an obvious nod to its larger and smaller siblings, the Camry and Yaris, with a blunt, curvaceous nose, flamey-surfaced head/taillights and wholey-unoffensive side panels.
Although the world car won't make it to our shores and there are a variety of other Corollas available throughout the globe, this does give us a glimpse as to what the future holds for one of the strongest selling compacts on the market.
The full mag scans are available after the jump.
