Toyota tried very hard indeed to give this generation of Corolla a personality, hence the bug eyed styling. Also the rear light clusters are different for every model. It didn't really work - this Corolla is now considered as bland as every model that went before it. Only the sporty G6 attempts to inject some youth appeal.
