This if launched in India , can make the fight all the more interesting , I feel its better looking than camry , some how the grille gells well the overall design theme.

europe gets the Auris

This is a rehash of the existing corolla- does not bode well with the Civic around

irrespective of the civic's looks a lot of people still prefer buying a toyota corolla over the honda civic.this aided by greater headroom in the corolla.and a lot of 40+ people do not like the "in your face interior styling of the civic".
i guess the axio(design wise) would do better as there havent been much takes for the new camry.

It looks like it's still the same body shell. Just the outer panels look different. Nonetheless it does look good and will give good competition to the civic.
Hope it comes really fast.

The Auris is confirmed for the Europe?
I thought it is still being developed and will only be launched as the next gen Corolla.

This new version of Corolla is much bolder looking than the Civic for me.

nitrous..I think if that car is priced 20 lakhs..It wont be able to sell much or for that matter it will be a total loss...

I dont think that car can be compared with an accord...But with the civic..

I would pay upto 12-13 lakhs for her...

I agree.But, everyone knows what toyota did with the new camry.
Maybe they think we dont deserve much.
