Toyota introduced the Furia Corolla Concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Toyota is hinting at its future design direction for small cars with its Corolla Furia Concept, unveiled at the Detroit auto show.

Toyota calls the concept a styling study that builds on brand’s priority to develop “more dramatic, expressively designed vehicles.” The concept will be on Toyota’s stand at the North American International Auto Show.

Iconic!

“The 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.”

Toyota calls the theme of the new design language “Iconic Dynamism.”

The show car features a number of carbon fiber details, such as this trunk lip spoiler.

The concept fits with calls by Akio Toyoda, company president and great-grandson of the founder, who has said he wants the company’s cars to be designed with more passion.

The Furia design features a swept-back windshield, with a sloped roofline and pronounced fender flares, meant to communicate a sense of motion even when the car is stationary. The aggressively styled front fascia, with a blacked-out grille treatment, highlights 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 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.

Carbon fiber and LED headlamps might be a bit much for a budget-priced compact such as the Corolla, but they make a statement on a concept like the Furia.
