The 11th generation Toyota Corolla is revealed for US markets on June 6th, 2013. The same was released in Canada on June 7th . The Euro version was shown to public in Istanbul/ Turkey as well the other day. Lets hear from you what your opinion is about the two. Motor-Trend said in an article and I quote as under.
The US version engine and transmission details are available. But for European version these are still to come. The base 2014 US Corolla is equipped with a carryover 132-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. The base Corolla L is equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. The six-speed manual is also available in the Corolla S. A new 2014 Corolla LE Eco model targets over 40 mpg in highway driving, the automaker said. The Corolla LE Eco adds under-body covers, a color-keyed rear spoiler, low-rolling-resistance tires on 15-inch wheels, a more efficient 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission.
It is believed that Euro version will come with a 1.3L engine. No confirmation as of now.
(Update June 10: The European version will choices of either a 1.3-liter gas, 1.6-liter gas, or 1.4-liter diesel engine. For the Philippines, Toyota might go with a 1.6-liter and the 1.8-liter valvematic. Toyota will be building the European version of the 2014 Corolla in Turkey and is expected to go on sale end of July 2013)
"As is often the case, the styling and content between the model sold in the U.S. and the rest of the world will differ slightly. The model that will be sold in Europe, Australia and other markets will get front-end styling resembling the European-market Toyota Auris. The U.S. version has a more aggressive-looking angular front end with a prominent lower grille. This supposedly in response to criticism of the current U.S.-spec Corolla perceived as not being sporty enough.The Euro-spec Corolla’s nose is smoother and less-angular, resembling the aforementioned larger Auris, in Toyota’s bid to position the Corolla as more upscale in European markets. Interior and rear-end styling is more similar between the two models. But there’s no denying that a car’s front end is often the defining characteristic of a car’s personality. Which are you a bigger fan of? The angular, aggressive lines of the U.S.-spec Corolla or the smoother, more subdued lines of the European model"
"BATTLE GROUND" between "Toyota & Honda". Post your opinion about the two versions only ( RED US/WHITE EURO). :D.
