Depending on pricing this car should stir this segment.

It is quality solid car. The diesel engines on these Toyota are on par (if not better) than German diesel engines (VW etc).

I had read this some months back in TOI and was really awaiting it.
But Last month in TOI Itself, Corolla sales had gone up drastically, even more than what toyota guys had anticipated and they had clearly told that there are no plans in bringing in new model....

May be they dont want these rumors to ruin the good run corolla is showing after all....wat u say guys??

What The camry has the proportions to carry off that futuristic look.This is going to make the corolla alienish looking.
And why the skoda ishtyle,..cant they design their cars differently??

The diesel will be priced at par with the skoda Tdi.So the petrol 1.8 category will still be dominated by the Civic,Imho.

i think toyota cann't delay it more than mid 2008 as the civic is already eatting the sales and the new city is coming next year so they cann't carry long in the city segment

Civic is still the better looking of the two.... if Honda too decides to take the diesel route ( I am sure they wouldn't like to be left behind toyota) then we can expect the fabulous 2.2 in civic which will be a killer blow.

I initially heard that the new Corolla would be out before the end of the next fiscal which would be March '08. Now they are saying Aug 2008. I will not be surprised if by the time the new Corolla comes out in India, the rest of the world will already have geared up for a facelift of the new one.

Also, I believe Toyota is planning another model, the VIOS to be launched earlier than that....to be pegged against the City and Optra.
Btw, the Dual VVT-i expected in these new cars is Toyota's newest marvel in petrol engines and should be able to put the Civic away without a whimper in terms of performance and FE.
