Updated Corolla hatch revealed ahead of local arrival later this year.
Toyota has previewed the 2015 Corolla hatch ahead of the car's public debut at the Geneva motor show next month.
The latest update of Australia's top-selling car brings redesigned front and rear fascias, with new headlights, a shark fin antenna as well as new alloy wheels.
It does appear, however, that both the new and outgoing Corollas will share sheet metal.
Toyota also says the new Corolla hatch will receive a cabin upgrade centred around improving comfort and safety features.
This could mean standard reversing camera across all models, bringing the Corolla hatch into line with the existing Corolla sedan.

The European-spec hatch shown in the preview images also shows a new dashboard fascia with turbine-like vents and a new centre console. The centre stack gets updated climate control switchgear and an integrated multimedia system with a larger screen to replace the current model's double-DIN setup.
The 2015 Corolla also promises improved fuel efficiency while retaining the 103kW 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine from the current model.
