Being one of the best known names in the Japanese automaker’s history, Toyota Corolla is one that spans eleven generations. Now, it seems that the development of the next-gen Corolla is well and truly underway as it has been spotted testing at Ann Arbor Michigan, the place where the Japanese carmaker has one of its main facilities in America. The spied test mule is a 2020 model and will debut in concept form by the end of 2019.
Toyota has put in a lot of effort to make sure that the prototype is covered in cladding to conceal styling details, but as per the pictures of the test mule, this next-gen Corolla will have the same dimensions, but will be spacious inside due to the benefits of the new platform. The next generation Corolla will be built on Toyota’s TNGA platform that will also underpin the future models of the Camry, Tundra and quite possibly even the next generation Innova. The Toyota New Global Architecture, which is used for the C-HR, Prius and Camry will serve both the new Auris and Corolla
There is evidence that the Corolla is likely to retain its two-tier front fascia, though milder in appearance in comparison to its larger sedan sibling. The new Corolla is also expected to get a significant update in terms of both interiors and exteriors.
