As the name “Furia” suggests, this concept vehicle has a “ferocious” look and a “fury” of energetic design elements.
There are a lot of words designers use to describe it, but just let me say it’s a great looking car. And I’m sure it will cause some surprise from those who may have preconceived notions about the future of Corolla.
The Furia is a dynamic compact-sedan interpretation, with short overhangs to emphasize a long wheelbase. Furia is designed around a theme that uses pure and simple surface elements to create a confident, more decisive appearance.
It features a dramatically swept windshield, sloped roofline, pronounced fender flares, and a blazing custom color Toyota calls “Fuego Furioso.”
the aggressive front fascia dominates with a blacked-out grille and carbon fiber lower spoiler. The carbon fiber treatment extends down the rocker panels and rear valance, finishing with an attention-grabbing rear spoiler. The ultramodern, yet aggressive, 19-inch alloy wheels are pushed out to the corners to enhance the Furia’s stable stance.
Sculpted front LED headlamps and rear composite LED taillights give the vehicle a technologically advanced image.
While Furia is clearly focused on the exterior, Toyota designers are also pushing the envelope on interior styling that will surprise a lot of people, with roominess, comfort and premium materials.
It’s only a concept, but the Corolla Furia sends a clear message where were the brand is going in the future.
Not only will the styling be more expressive, but it will also reflect our overall approach to the compact segment in every way.
This exciting compact sedan concept hints at the styling cues consumers can expect to see on the next-generation Corolla. The concept represents an exterior styling study by Toyota designers, and it builds on the brand’s product development priority to develop more dramatic, expressively designed vehicles.
“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.”
The Furia is designed around a theme of “Iconic Dynamism,” which uses pure and simple surface elements to create a confident, decisive and recognizable appearance appealing to more youthful consumers. It features a more provocative, dynamic interpretation of a compact sedan that displays a more stable, athletic stance with 19-inch allow wheels pushed to the vehicle’s corners with short overhangs to help emphasize its long wheelbase.
The Corolla Furia design includes a swept windshield, with a sloped roofline and pronounced fender flares, to help communicate a sense of motion even when the car is stationary. The aggressively styled front fascia, with a blacked-out grille treatment, helps highlight 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 impactful 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.
