2013 TOYOTA COROLLA REVEALED

Toyota's all-new 2013 Corolla hatch, sold overseas as the Auris, has reportedly surfaced online in a series of leaked brochure images.

The vehicle shown in the scanned pages is a clear match for the camouflaged prototypes spied by TMR's photographers earlier this year.

Uncovered by website Noticias Automotivas, the images reveal an Auris-badged hatch that draws heavily on the look of the new Yaris light car and the Camry medium sedan.

As we could see on the spied cars, the new Corolla has been given an image overhaul, featuring a sharper face with a deep-V grille design and slender lighting at both ends.

The new 'rolla also benefits from a longer windscreen, contributing to a longer and more streamlined profile than the current model.

Inside, there's a mostly black dash design, with an uninterrupted top level and circular air vents. The gear shifter has also returned to the more traditional position in the now-separated centre console.

According to the leaked pages, the new Corolla is 30mm longer, with a roof 50mm lower than the current model.

The new Corolla will launch with a 1.8 litre petrol engine - likely an updated version of the engine offered with the current model - and a BMW-sourced diesel will be offered in some markets.

Details for the diesel have not been revealed, although we could expect to see a version of the 1.6 litre engine that drives the MINI Cooper D, originally sourced from Peugeot-Citroen.

In the Cooper D, the 1.6 litre diesel engine features direct injection and turbocharging, producing 82kW and 270Nm of torque. Fuel consumption is listed at 3.8 l/100km - among the lowest figures of any car available in Australia.

In Australia, the new Corolla will tackle Hyundai's new i30 and the Ford Focus, and Toyota will be looking to the hatch's sportier style to battle the next Mazda3 - which will undoubtedly be sharper than the already segment-leading current model.
