    £21k? Is that for real? And only 16” wheels …will look like shit!

      I know right?
      Still, it’ll ride well which is what most Toyota Corolla owners will be thankful for.

    Did I just see a pig fly past my window? Because these look really good. That wagon!

      it is hard to believe that toyota is now considering car designs as a part of the business development.

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    Toyota has won. For decades they made appliances and never cared about design: now they do. They literally have the future sewn up. Personally I would walk a 1000 miles before I ever bought something like a camry but here we are.

    Toyota finally remembers the Corolla FX-16 of the 80’s, and an opportunity to provide a more reliable (and cheaper) offering to the Mini Cooper.

  • designer_dick

    Ah, the plunging value of the £ strikes again. I remember when a small family hatchback cost from around £13-14k, and £20k+ was the preserve of high-specification or sports versions like the Focus ST and Golf GTI, and it wasn’t that long ago.
