Default SCOOP : Caught Testing-The New Corolla

Guys, I've been on my job today at a rural village called Bangarupalem, in Chittoor Dt., AP when I managed to catch this.This place is in between Bangalore and Tirupati, Old Madras Road.

Only the badgings and Head and tail lights where disguised/covered . Not a remarkable design by any count. The interiors although looked airy, fresh and modern in comparision to the existing Corolla, cannot hold candle to the CIVIC.Have unfinished work, hence more details later.

so finally it is here... the front looks much better now... if the ride, handling and engine grunt are as good (if not better) as the current corolla, then it would be a serious competitor to Civic.. so, guess, it just 2-3 months away from launch..

Nice catch. However, please put the name across the pic!

This one can be easily removed by cropping.

Good find,Aravind.
I've seen the new Corolla on the streets,and they definitely look much better than the earlier design. Seems like a smaller version of the Camry,if I may say so.

Finally. After ages of bearing with the now boring design, this is definitely fresh. And hopefully not on the lines of the Camry.

Good scoop aravind. Thats the first sighting of the New Corolla. Looks pretty good to me. If only the lights were more visible.
