We've sort of been wondering when Toyota would finally debut the next-generation Corolla sedan, especially since the current car is getting very, very long in the tooth. We got a glimpse of the new compact's design at this year's Detroit Auto Show in the form of the Furia concept seen above, but we figured we'd see the production car by now.

According to Edmunds, Toyota will be unveiling the new Corolla sometime soon, and it won't wait until the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Officials from the Japanese automaker did not state a specific location or date for the new car's unveiling, but said that the 2014 Corolla is expected to be on sale before the LA expo later this year and that it will be revealed "somewhere in the US."

Toyota did not divulge any details about the new Corolla, and we're willing to bet that the aggressive lines of the Furia concept will be dulled down quite a bit for the production model. Still, news that the new car is coming sooner rather than later is indeed a good thing.

      The looks of the new Corolla aren't something I'm particularly concerned with all that much. BUT, I just want to know if FINALLY we will get to see a Corolla hatchback in the US or not (Matrix is close, but doesn't quite count). For my future car needs, a sedan won't quite do it.

      Anything is an improvement over the current car. Hope those rumors of a CVT are unfounded.

      It looks better than the current model but one of the big problems is the way it rides and drives. That needs major improvement. I drove a Corolla as a rental last year and it was awful.. Sloppy steering and not very comfortable seats Most of it's buyer probably don't care or realize it is outclassed because they will buy it because it is a Toyota. I would be nice if they made one model that was more edgy in styling and had crisp handling.

      If only Toyota had the guts to put it out just like this, that would be great, but they will tone it down, and it will no doubt be another boring little crapbox.

      People nothing new here, this corolla is out in Austrailia except in hatchback form. Take a look http://www.toyota.com.au/corolla/prices The production will look like a squashed RAV4.

      This Furia makes me just furious...furiously excited. Great new design from Toyota and a very cool color for a Corolla, too. Make it as much as like this as possible, Toyota, and offer a color scarily close to this orange-glow color and it will sell big. And large.

      IMHO the styling is too conservative. Still better than anything GM or VW are coming up with, typical for for Toyota and most other Japanese car companies, but not as appealing as the latest from Hyundai and Ford. It will still be a very safe buy, with good resale, very reliable, very little drama.

          Neighbor has an M3 for weekends. Drives a Camry during the week because he has to make it there every day.

        Almost evey car will remain reliable for 9 years these days. Some just do it with more fun and performance than a Corolla.

        You might be right (though I have Toyota owner friends to prove Toyota reliability a myth) however there are lots of people (many of readers of this site included) who do not care if their car spends 5 days a year in shop, and gives them fun and joy all the other 360 days of the year. That's exactly the reason they call Corolla an appliance, something built to do a task, regardless of comfort, styling and joy. I do not blame either group; at the end of the day most of the people put the money where their mouth is ;)

      Now just dump a 50 lb barrel of oatmeal on top, and you'll have a production Toyota.

        Oatmeal is too "wild", creamed wheat is the preferred choice.
