Heart-pounding it may not be, but the curiously-named Toyota Furia Concept just debuted at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show to preview elements of the next-generation Corolla.
“The Corolla Furia Concept is an early indicator of where our compact car design may lead in the future,” Toyota group vice president and general manager Bill Fay said. “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.”
