Big in Japan: The 2008 Toyota Corolla Hatch?

The headline of this scan of Japan's Driver magazine piece reads SCOOP!! and that it may be, but we've already seen such scans of the likely next-gen Toyota Corolla hatch — which rumors have indicated may be coming to the US in 2008. In this particular article, however, the mag purports to have the inside line on a new Toyota model due to be unveiled this October in Japan. It'll be called the Orius, which shares its name with a prediator beetle that eats small caterpillars, aphids, whiteflies and spider mites (this has been Pirate Bug minute), and will likely be the model Europeans (at least) see as the Corolla hatch. We'll see.
