Ok, so I'm walking down the street the other day towards my car, and parked right in front of me is a Toyota Corolla. I did a double take when I saw it; many of the lines are "borrowed" from the Altezza/IS300!
I'm not inferring that they're the same cars, so you simple dolts looking for a flame, lighten up.
look here:
Corolla

IS300

It's hard to tell here, but even the hood lines match up. The front end aside, nothing else is at all similar.
Take a look next time you see a new corolla... it's uncanny!

I can see the Focus resemblance, and the Corolla, but where the hell do people get the idea it looks like an Echo. I dont see that at ALL.

What makes you think its not the other way around? After all, which car was here first, hehe. Plus, I think its just because its the certain type of brand ya know. Certain brands have certain looks. I can say majority of Acura's all look a like except maybe the Integra which doesn't seem to resemble the rest.

I hear ya, but looking back over the older pre-99 corollas, you don't see a front end that looks ANYTHING like the IS300/Altezza... this is a new design for 2000-2001 corollas

Since Lexus is part of Toyota, we are bound to see comparisons between Toyota and Lexus.

It's the same comparison between a Toyota camry and a LExus Es300. To me they look exactly the same in exterior. Place Lexus badges on a Toyota camry and no one will know the difference, until you actually drive the cars.

Kill my butt. oh no, not that again!
Look at my rating then look at yours... you gotta be doing somthing right! Perhaps you're doing more butt killing than me. That's just not my thing, if you know what I mean.

Are you kidding me? The hood on the is300 is heavier than a bimmer's hood or a maxima. The ones on the corolla is like a a piece of sheet metal...They can not possibly be the same car.

Wow, stellar arguement, I can find no holes in it.
Now who said they were the same car?
That's not even in question, I'm talking apearance; it looks as if the lines on the hood and front end are "borrowed" for the new Corolla...
