Toyota Corolla customers will do a double-take when the updated hatch
version of Australia's best-selling car arrives in June.
Local buyers will have the choice of two distinct looks for the latest hatch, derived from new designs unveiled at
recent motor shows in Geneva and New York.
The first is based on the refreshed European Toyota Auris and will form the basis of the popular Ascent and Ascent
Sport grades in Australia. It displays a more prominent Toyota logo at the front, flanked by chrome 'wings', new
headlight clusters, a more prominent front bumper and a lower grille that runs the full width of the car.
The second, more aggressive design, reserved locally for the sporty SX and ZR Corolla hatch variants, debuted on the
iM hatch from Toyota's youth-oriented Scion brand in the US.
Its sharp features include a body aero kit along with a distinctive piano-black honeycomb mesh pattern for its upper
grille, hexagonal lower grille and side bezels.
Toyota Australia's executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said both design themes for the new Corolla hatch
produced a greater road presence with a visually broader stance.
"We are spicing up the Corolla hatch range with two distinct looks - the classic redesign seen in the European car
and the added spark displayed by the sporty-looking US car," Mr Cramb said.

"In Australia, we can draw on the global strength of Toyota to offer compelling designs for cars like Corolla that
stand out in the market and offer maximum appeal to buyers who have different tastes," he said.
"This underscores Toyota's ability to ensure Corolla moves with the times to meet the changing needs of Australian
drivers and their families."
In each of the past two years, Corolla has led its hotly contested market segment and claimed the title as Australia's
best-selling car. It is also leading this year's title race.
Corolla has been popular with Australian motorists throughout its 11 generations, selling more than 1.3 million cars
in 48 years.
