Revealed in a safety technology video that featured at this month’s Geneva Motor Show, the black sedan showcases a brand-new face, matched to the current model’s existing profile and rear-end styling.
Like the newly updated Corolla hatch, the sedan’s snout gets a slender new wing-like chrome garnish along a re-contoured grille, connecting at each corner with slim new headlights.
A streamlined new bumper design rounds out the changes, swapping the current model’s three-port design for a long one-piece design.
Toyota has yet to confirm if this re-styled sedan is bound for production, although the new look could be seen as a step toward finally unifying the front-end styling of the two Corolla models.
The facelifted Corolla hatch is due in Australia later this year, which means we could see this updated sedan hit markets sometime in 2016.
