Ok, here's the snaps. Apologize poor image quality - was a bit rushed this morning and didn't want to drag my DSLR, so took them with my cam phone. Resized them for your convenience.

front looks better than current Corolla, i prefer Civic tho.

R16s

Rear aint bad either

rear leg space "felt" smaller than Indian version. could be just my feel. I put a laptop here for comparison. Hope it helps.

Okie, thats all. Karan - hope that helps. Do let me know by today if you need snaps from any other angle. Will return this one on Saturday and pick up a new Accord/Camry V6 instead. Why-o-why don't the company give me an Infinity Coupe!

Looks good from the outside. However, the interiors are simple and nothing exciting about them, especially the instrument cluster. Btw is the temperature gauge next to the tacho? IMO, the current Corollas interiors are much better.
Thanks for sharing the pics skywalker.

I'm sorry - didn't check if there was a temp. gauge - will check wheni go out. Or are you talking about that orange LED next to speedo?

Yawn...! Boring...

I was expecting that Toyota will take a leaf or two out of it's arch competitor and come up with a better design. However this would not hold a candle against Civic.

Looks like a pretty confused design to me... I am disappointed.
