It doesn't look much different from our pre-facelift wagon, which is good. And it's a bit uglier, which is good too.

I'm really liking Toyota's new global front end design! :thumbsup:

Although I think those lights look a little oversized on a light-colored car. Looks great in black though, if a bit like an Opel Astra.

looks like a Holden Vectra....
but all in the name of toyota stylists, take many parts from other cars and morph into one and call it your own.

The design studio of toyota = 1 scanner, 1 photocopier and photoshop.

Looks like some put an air pump too the Corolla. Companys aren't trying any more, but I guess they some sort of signature look.

Don't follow you...

That is an improvement over the current Toyota company car.

The bottom part of the front reminds me a lot of the Ford corporate face.

I like the wagon a lot better than the sedan. I'm not a fan of the rear at all on the sedan, reminds me of a bad mix of Sebring and Civic.

It reminds me a lot of the current Subaru Legacy in its shape. I think I prefer this though, never thought I'd say that about a Toyota.

I would call it only slightly un-bland.

Avensis Wagon > Venza

Agreed. Also, part of me wishes that there was a new Corolla that was this car. It would totally be a Japanese last gen Jetta in terms of content/interior quality.
