Toyota Furia Concept teased ahead of 2013 Detroit Auto Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 23, 2012

It’s believed that the concept vehicle, codenamed Furia, which will be seen this January at the Detroit Auto Show, may be the next Corolla. Toyota officials didn’t disclose any details except to describe the Furia as a sedan. It’s suggestive that since the Yaris, Camry and Avalon sedans were all redesigned in the past couple of years, and the Corolla is due for a redesign in fall 2013, the Furia will provide hints about the design direction for Toyota's compact sedan.

There is a teaser video of the Furia that gives close-ups views of the headlights, taillights and rear deck. From the design language, we observed that the Furia uses plenty of cues from the latest Scion FR-S sports coupe.

Fans should know though that Honda concepts frequently bear a close resemblance to the car’s final production version but Toyota has a tendency to be slightly more theoretical in its conceptual design language. It’s highly possible that what will be seen at Cobo Hall will be brought down a notch when it arrives at dealerships.
