The next generation of the Toyota Corolla will hit the United States auto market next year with a dramatic shift in terms of styling and not only.
The Japanese based automaker Toyota may be keeping the next generation of the Corolla into the shadows for the moment but the guys at the model will get dramatic styling and it will also be underpinned by a new global platform with front-wheel drive, which will also be used on the European version of the Corolla hatchback and on the Auris too.
As a quick reminder, the current generation of the Toyota Corolla has been introduced back in 2007 and the model is currently assembled in Japan, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Venezuela. Production in the United States has ended in March 2010, at the Fremont facility in California. The model has also been assembled in Australia and in the United Kingdom. Early models of the Toyota Corolla were mostly rear-wheel drive, later models were mostly front-wheel drive and some of them are all-wheel drive.
