    Title says it all. This is a big scoop. Like it? I personally think it looks like a vacuum cleaner, but I'm wondering what the masses think.

    Not a fan. Just don't like the direction they are going with the front of the Tundra.

    Looks better in black, mostly because you can't see it as much. lol

    it may be too close, but here is an "up the snotbox" view:

    ^^^wtf were they thinking? Bastard child of a jetta, ford focus and vw golf/jetta.

    Although, I never liked the corolla, and the 3/4 vehicles I just mentioned all looked better than this crap imho:

    The new tundra has too much going on in the front, knock that "scoop" off of there and give it a real hood and you have a better looking truck. Corolla is much better than what it used to be.

    this and that...
    i remember people disliked the front end of the refresh on the tacomas. i was one of them. now i have a 13 and i think it looks way better than the old front end. it grows on you the more you look at it. i think its gonna be the same for the tundra and the 4r. as for the scoop...meh lol.

    Is this going to be the look of all the new toyotas? The 'WTF were they thinking' look? Its not bad but the looks are getting wayyyy too sophisticated.

    I don't mind it, I've never liked the corolla anyway but better than the old.

    I like the Jetta but this corolla does have a little bit of Focus in it... I never get too crazy when new models come out until I've had a chance to see it in person and take some time to "digest" the differences because a lot of times I grow to like some of the vehicles that I didn't like in the pics. Not a fan of the Tundra yet but I'll have to see when it comes out.
