Toyota Corolla Furia Concept Presented at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show, the Toyota Corolla Furia Concept gives some hints on the design direction for the next-generation Corolla model.
This exciting compact sedan concept hints at the styling cues consumers can expect to see on the next-generation Corolla. The concept represents an exterior styling study by Toyota designers, and it builds on the brand’s product development priority to develop more dramatic, expressively designed vehicles.
“The Toyota Corolla Furia Concept is an early indicator of where our compact car design may lead in the future,” said Bill Fay, group vice president and general manager of the Toyota Division. “It blends a heightened emphasis on dramatic design and modern elements of high technology to generate curb appeal that will surprise a lot of people.”
Giacomo Balla, the Italian Futurist painter best known for his 1912 work “Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash,” had no way of knowing his style would influence the design of a compact sedan from a Japanese car company in 2014. But “Iconic Dynamism,” which describes both his painting and the more provocative design of the Toyota Furia concept.
The Corolla Furia design includes a swept windshield, with a sloped roofline and pronounced fender flares, to help communicate a sense of motion even when the car is stationary. The aggressively styled front fascia, with a blacked-out grille treatment, helps highlight a pair of sculpted front LED headlamps that combine with the rear composite LED taillight assemblies to add a sense of advanced technology to the Furia’s impactful exterior. Carbon fiber accents adorn the Corolla Furia Concept’s wheel wells, rocker panels, and rear valance, which includes ornate metal exhaust outlet surrounds to add a sense of modern athleticism.
