Toyota Corolla Facelift Spotted Out In The Open – Spy Shots

2015 Toyota Corolla Facelift 3

The facelift of the 11th generation Corolla was finalized even before the launch of the car. The facelift, or the MMC (Minor Model Change) as the automakers would like to call it, was first revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show through an animated video, highlighting the safety features the upcoming Corolla would come equipped with.

Today, some spy shots surfaced on the internet, presumably of the facelift of 11th generation Toyota Corolla. The photos feature a different bumper and resigned front, which is very similar to Toyota Auris and Toyota Avensis, in line with the design philosophy of other latest models of Toyota vehicles.

The presumed MMC has less usage of chrome in the front, an aggressive looking grille, and bumpers with daytime running lamps (DRLs) in place of fog-lamps of the current car. In the rear, the car features a beautiful set of clear tail lamps and a more dense rear bumper. There are no shots of the interior, but there won’t be much of a difference between the interior, apart from better materials. The car is expected to have the latest safety features which Toyota touted in the demo video at the Geneva, which included the much needed auto-dimming headlamps (God please grant that gadget to all Corolla drivers in Pakistan. Amen!)

    Sorry brother but how come it is Fact Lift model. PakWheels uploaded the pictures of Face Lift model. This is just the standard launched Corolla with a different bumper and changed back lights. May be pictures from Dubai or somewhere as it has an X written at the back.

    bro face lift “IS” a “minor model change.” like when toyota changed the lights of corolla when altis 1.8 was introduced in 2005 or when honda changed 7th gen lights to “eagle eyes”.

  • Ali Rauf

    Bro it is when it is “CHANGED” where as in this case it is not even changed. Any person putting on after market lights in City or Corolla for that instance imported from Malaysia does not make it a FACELIFT model 🙂

    You can check yourself that this bumper is available in Malaysia 🙂

    The face lift is different
    From front the grill and lights border is not curve like in 2015-2016mid. It is sharply cut and has angle in the centre.
    From back the lights have more length towards the sides than thw previous ones. Back lights are led strips(4-5 tiny bulbs) for red lights.
    May be there is some other differences, but unless it comes to roads no one can list all differences.
