Toyota Corolla LWB for China
It looks like Toyota will offer two versions of the Corolla in China.
I have seen luxury cars being sold with longer wheelbase versions. From Audi, BMW, Mercedes, etc… But I had no idea a car like the Corolla would make that list.
That illustration above also looks quite off. It only mentions a difference of about 3 inches, but the lower car seems to have a much longer wheelbase.

That illustration sucks. The Chinese "LWB" Corolla is just going to be America's Corolla Sedan which comes with the 106" wheelbase. The international Corolla sedan comes with a 103" wheelbase.
Bad photochop.. I doubt they'll even change the rear door glass, probably just increase the thickness of the B-pillar.
The Corolla hatchback and all the Corollas for the Japanese market has a wheelbase of 2,640 mm (103.9 in).
The Corolla sedan and wagon sold in the US and internationally has a wheelbase of 2,700 mm (106.3 in).
The image says 2,800 mm which is 110.2 inches, so almost 4 inches longer than the normal version.
