1:40 /

At the 2013 Detroit auto show, CNET's Antuan Goodwin drops in on Toyota, which is previewing the Furia Concept, an aggressive Corolla that hints to the future of the company's sedan models.

What's up guys? This is Antoine Goodwin with CNET.com and we're on the floor of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. And we're taking a look at the Toyota Corolla Furia concept. Now this Furia concept is a very forward looking peak at the future of Toyota's Corolla. So underneath a lot of this concept car aggressiveness, we've seen a lot of the same design cues that we saw debut on the Toyota Camry and most recently on the new Toyota Avalon. If you look right here, you'll see the sort of like drill that just kinda flows into the headlight and unites the whole front of the car with one big chrome element. You'll see that on the Avalon these LED headlights also reminiscing of the Avalon. And even if you look at this big lower drill opening, you'll see that even though you've got a lot of carbon fiber and aggressiveness here, that seem sort of kidney bean shape that you'll see in the Avalon is still there if you blow your eyes. Around back you'll see generally the same tail lamp-shape that we saw again in the Toyota Avalon although this is a lot more aggressive with these LED elements. Some concept only features that will definitely not make it to production are these little bubbles that are kinda suspended into the turn signal and of course all of this carbon fiber that pretty much just surrounds the vehicle with the spoiler, the lower balance here and then again on the side skirts. Now the next Toyota Corolla hasn't actually been announced or anything like that but we can expect that when it does eventually hit the market, it'll look something like this. I'm Antoine Goodwin with CNET.com on the floor of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
