DETROIT (AP) — The Toyota Corolla is getting a facelift. But the jury is still out on how extreme its makeover should be.

Toyota hinted at a new, edgier style for the staid compact at the Detroit auto show on Monday. The cautious Japanese automaker unveiled a car that could become the blueprint for the 2014 model. It ditches the current Corolla's soft, bland styling in favor of sharper lines, a dramatically sloped windshield and more aggressive headlights.

The redesign could ultimately get incorporated into the next Corolla, or get dropped. It all depends on how people react to the changes.
