Looks like the 2019 iM will have that 'open mouth' front grill that you either hate or like. Headlight design/shape is also sort of bizarre looking (to me) on first impression. The front grill shape reminds me of the the iA, but not nearly as bad. Opting for black, would blend that front into the design better though. Not sure how I feel about that 'decorative' exhaust outlet design bringing up the rear though. I tend to prefer the traditional round exhaust tips over the overdone shaped ones that some cars have. At least the shaped ones pictured are rather compact/unassuming & not stupidly large like I have seen on certain Acura's, etc.

I hope that Toyota carries through with its promise to release hybrid versions of most models in the US - and this is one of them.

More grown up in style

We still are waiting to see what the American version will be

I love the design, but where are the interior pictures? That's what I care about the most. Rear end looks like Opel/Buick, but it's OK.

Current:
2018 Buick Regal Sportback FWD

Past:
2016 Scion iM 6MT
2016 Honda Accord EX 6MT
2014 Acura RDX Tech AWD
2014 Acura TSX Tech
2007 Honda Accord SE
2004 Honda Element EX

I'll have to wait until I see it in person but at first glance it looks okay but I like the cleaner, simpler lines of my current iM at first glance. The front end I like 10x better on my iM and I'm not an instant fan of the way it swoops up to the rear of the car. Hate the huge front intake grill. Back is okay but still over done at first glance. Will just have to see what changes the NA Corolla iM have.

I think that the front headlight/bumper/grill design is the weak link on both the current iM & what is pictured for the 2019 Auris/iM (especially with no factory fog lights on the current model making those big empty black plastic cutouts on right/left front look ridiculous). Toyota seems to have aesthetics problems in the front design area, across all their models now, more or less. Makes black the best paint color choice really, to help blend those ill-conceived front fascias with the rest of the car. I really wish now that I would have opted for black paint on my 2015 Yaris SE, hellhole Arizona sun or not.

I couldn't imagine buying the 2018 refresh SE Yaris in anything but black, to blend/conceal that front design & the two black plastic reflector cutouts in the rear bumper. If I decide not to go with a 2019 Auris/iM, that would be my next runner-up, along with possibly a 2018 iM in either barcelona red or black.

Now I actually love the front design of the current iM. I understand the issue with the fog light but that is an easy fix. I picked up a set on eBay for $65, problem solved.

I do agree with you on the Yaris though. That new front grill is hideous and does disappear when painted black. I'm not a fan of black paint though. I've owned a few black cars and even my current 2006 xB is black but I bought that used so color is less of an option. It's just so hard to keep clean and swirl marks are always more evident.

I expect the new USA-spec car will likely have 2 grades, the SE and XSE, both will be offered with a 2.0L engine (M20A-FKS?) with either a CVT or 6-speed manual. I don't think we're going to see the hybrids over here for the Corolla Hatchback for 2019.
