Pictures and details of the Toyota Furia concept, which has been unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show

Toyota has used the Detroit Motor Show to reveal how the next version of one of the world’s best-selling cars could look.

The Furia concept gives a big clue as what the brand has in store for the new Corolla. It continues to sell well in the US, with 290,000 finding homes in 2012, but faces stiff opposition against the likes of the Honda Civic and Ford Focus.

Measuring 4,620mm long, 1,805mm wide and 1,425mm high, with a striking front end, low roofline and short overhangs, the Furia certainly cuts a dash on the stand.

It’s the latest in a string of stylish concepts from Toyota, charged with shaking off the company’s dowdy image and increase appeal to younger buyers. 19-inch wheels and carbon-fibre accents add a further sense of occasion.

Well have to say this looks a lot better than the drab new Auris especially with its robbed back end off the equally drab Mitsi ASX. Have to say this would probably get a lot more buyers in the UK and definitely spruce up the front of Toyota dealerships parked next to the GT86

Looks like a Honda Civic clone, looking more like the previous Honda Civic than the current one.
