Not only will the 2014 Toyota Corolla be on unveiled before this year’s L.A. Auto Show, but it will be on sale by then according to a recent report.
Toyota announced during the NADA/J.D. Power and Associates conference in New York last week that the car will be unveiled before the show in L.A.
Edmunds reports that after the event, a Toyota spokesman said the car would actually be on sale by the show, which will take place at the end of 2013.
There are only a small number of major auto shows between now and then, the largest being Frankfurt and then Tokyo right before the L.A. show. None seem like viable candidates given the on-sale remarks.
Based on the concept seen earlier this year in Detroit, the new Corolla will be longer and wider than the outgoing generation. While unveiling the Furia concept (seen above) that previews the new car, the brand said its sportier Corolla S is the best-selling version – hence the changes to the Furia.
Powertrain details for the Furia are still unannounced, but don’t hold your breath for new engines. Toyota is recycling powerplants these days like a street bum on empty beer cans. The new Tundra gets that treatment, as does the Lexus IS, and the new Highlander.
