Forget SE-Asia. Look the Indian ad carefully. In the glimpse of new Corolla, just under the headlight, on the bumper. Xenon, I still doubt, but if they do then those standards will make it segment leader again, even Laura won't be hard to challange as the dealer has already told me it has cruise control.

EDIT: Great news guys.. It actually will have Xenons, it also has MID (like Laura) Cruise control, and hosts of features. (confirmed by my dealer, he has driven the new corolla while the registration formelities.)

Yes correct, see the pictures below. I think something similar to this will come. These are two versions for upper and lower models.

This one has the MID.

And for the first time ever in India, if they could give the true key less entry and key less start, like this photo, it will be killer. I am sold..

Sahil, its going to be a 4 Speed Automatic, without paddleshifts. That is what is there in Thailand, and ditto is to come to India. Unfortunately, just horrible! I was going to convince my dad to take this for a getz replacement, but with 4 speed automatic, no way!

@Mods, Can we get the thread title changed as we have a confirmed launch date?
It should help in stopping new threads being created?
