At this moment we still do not have the official images of the 2015 Toyota Corolla but the photos of Furia Concept that was recently present shows us in which direction next generation will go. There will be some changes to this concept model but we hope that this Japanese car maker will not significantly redesign concept version.
Looking at the U.S. market we can easily notice that the Corolla is the best-selling vehicle in the small sedan market segment for the last few years and even longer. Since it is a quite successful vehicle it is expected that in the next few years it will continue to dominate this market. For it to be competitive there are needs for it to be offered with great features that will certainly allow it to continue with great results, expectations are high.
Changes that we were able to see to other models in this segment make them much nicer and more attractive; this is a segment where the next Corolla could improve. And after the last year model was offered we can notice that they are going in the right direction with changes. More aggressive and bolder looks in combination with great amount of technology improved handling and similar are the new reasons for which this car could be on the list of the buyers that are looking for new models in this segment.
Release Date Of 2015 Toyota Corolla
Just like many years before this new model will offer high level of reliability, low running costs and usability. All these made it default choice for many buyers but with the improvements that competitors are offering it is a great need for further improvements for this vehicle.
Under the hood we are again getting the 1.8 liter inline four cylinder unit that offers 132 hp and 128 pound-feet of torque. More power is offered from the same 1.8 inline four version that comes with Valvematic technology that allows continuously variable valve timing to be active in wider range of revs. As a result we have better fuel economy and more power, about 140 hp. Higher trim levels are offered with CVT as standard while the base models come with manual six speed gearboxes.
One of the things that the U.S. market would love to see is the hybrid version. At this point there are only rumors and we can say that if something similar to Prius is delivered under the hood, with fuel economy of about 45 to 50 mpg it would be a big hit. One of the problems is that this car might be slightly pricier than the base model which comes at less than $ 17.000. We do expect it to be priced at about $23.000 to $25.000 but those are only rumors at this moment so we will have to wait little longer.
2015 Toyota Corolla Price
As we said base model comes with a price less than $17.000 and for a fully loaded version in higher trim level you will need to pay about $23.000 to $24.000. When it comes to release date we are still waiting for it to be announced but it will most likely come in the next few months while the dealerships will receive this car during the fall of this year.
