AUTO NEWS

Concept model may be final Corolla preview

Toyota unveiled its Yundong Shuangqing II concept car at the currently ongoing 2013 Auto Shanghai. Although its main purpose was to serve as a concept car for a Chinese-market hybrid vehicle, the Yudong Shuangqing II concept seems to hint of the next generation Corolla as it also shows a lot of similarities with the Furia Concept and the earlier leaked Corolla images.

With exterior dimensions of 4,620mm x 1,775mm x 1,450mm (LWH) and a wheelbase of 2,700mm, the Yundong Shuangqing II concept sits right in the compact sedan segment. The measurements reveals that if this is indeed the next Corolla/Altis sedan, it will be longer and wider than the outgoing Altis although it will be having a lower overall height. Its wheelbase will also be longer by 100mm.

Additionally, our sources has been hinting of a local launch of the next-generation Altis happening at the latter part of the year. This further confirms the previous reports of an North American debut that's set to happen by November this year.
