Tonight marked the debut of the 2020 Toyota Corolla. One of the world's best selling automobiles, the Corolla nameplate is storied.

As an entry-level vehicle, it's been dominating the sales charts for decades.

And Toyota decided to make things a bit more interesting. That's because the 2020 Corolla will also boast a hybrid variant. Considering the way the current-gen Toyota Prius looks, we actually welcome this change. Simply put, the designers at Toyota got a little carried away with the latest Prius.

It's a disaster, inside and out.

This leads me to believe that properly done hybrid of the Corolla actually could be a smash hit if Toyota doesn't flub it up. The Corolla has always been a handsome looking product and not like an experiment gone wrong. In addition, the Corolla's packaging has always made it a selection among a broad set of buyers.

Having said that, what say YOU, Spies? If Toyota delivers a grade "A" Corolla Hybrid, can it OUTSELL the current-gen Prius?

Toyota's press release follows:
