Does the Auris tip Toyota’s hand on the upcoming Corolla hatch?by Keith Buglewicz
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). Check back here for more detail if – or when – the Corolla debuts.
