Post Next Generation Chevrolet Optra

I found these Spy pics of Next Generation Chevrolet Optra. I could not find any of these info on the forums. Sorry if its a repost. The front looks a little like the Hyundai Sonata and the back like the present Corolla

looks really good, though body lines seems to be same, no change in that, headlights, tail lights and front grills seems to be changed. there could be change in interior as well....although i like my Optra Magnum TCDI

Looks good..!
I am sure this car (if at all launched here) will be priced more than the present Optra.

hmm great, now it may actually look Korean, the present car did the mistake of looking Italian.

Talking Tosca?

I think that's Tosca from GM - Daewoo. It is bigger than optra (nubira) and its front looks exactly like SX4.

It is also known as Chevy Epica.

I have seen quite a few Tosca cars in S. Korea.

@Narayan - The current Chevy Optra is actually Daewoo's Nubira
It is sold as Suzuki Forenza in US and in some other countries too.

Definitely looks bigger than the current car. The C pillar looks confused though. They tried to copy the Bee Ems . Any idea about launch dates? Time to sell my Magnum kya??

The Optra is known as the Nubira in other markets.

These and the camo cars are not the same. See the C-pillar and the rear door on the camo'd car.

Even the Camo'd car looks near about Kia Optima, which again is Sonata territory.
