CARS REVIEW - 2008 Toyota Auris Preview

What it Is

New Cars: Toyota Corolla Preview – What you’re looking at here is the new Toyota Auris, as shown at the 2006 Paris Auto Show and otherwise known as the new Toyota Corolla hatchback – maybe – for the 2008 model year. Already debuted in Japan, the new Corolla promises to be bigger, more stylish and powerful than the outgoing model. There will also be an emphasis on safety. The Auris, for example, will probably come equipped with nine airbags and a slew of brake-and-motion safeguards like ABS, Brake Assist (BA) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC).

Why it Matters

Basically, it’s all about competing with the Civic, and to do that, the Corolla must be stylish, roomy, safe and efficient. Judging from these photos, Toyota has at least got the styling correct.

What's Under the hud

Engine-wise, the current 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine doesn’t quite match up to the Civic’s 140-horsepower unit, so perhaps we’ll see an upgrade to the 2.4-liter four-banger – making around 160 horsepower, or the Corolla XRS’ 1.8-liter rev-monster. Rumors also persist about a Corolla Hybrid variant to compete with Honda’s stated intent to debut a hybrid vehicle that’s smaller and more affordable than the Civic Hybrid.

What we Think

If the new Corolla hatchback looks like this Auris, we think it's another hit for Toyota. As to the sedan, time and a flight to Detroit just may tell what Toyota has in store. Check back here for more detail if – or when – the Corolla debuts।
