Auto Blog News Feed - Tue, 04/17/2018 - 18:54

Filed under: ,,,

We've already seen the Toyota Corolla hatchback and you'll be able to read about what it's like to drive April 30, but we still have yet to hear much about the sedan. That's a bit surprising, since the Corolla is Toyota's compact bread and butter, making up nearly 94 percent of the Corolla's almost 330,000 sales in 2017. We may not have much longer to wait, though, since the Corolla prototype in the spy shots above look pretty close to production. Notably, the heavy black plastic of the last pro

VW plans to update its logo into something ‘more colorful’

Auto Blog News Feed - Tue, 04/17/2018 - 15:25
