Riders in the back get more leg room, and up front, the windshield is rounded at its base, giving a "sense" of more space. I'd heard the next-gen models would be based on the new Yaris platform, and the reason for it, according to the chief engineer, is to bring the car back to compact-car dimensions--thereby giving their Japanese customers a tax break. He also added this new version is aimed at the 60+ demographic.
Looks to me Toyota have put the Corolla "out to pasture", in a manner of speaking. The new Yaris is as big inside as the 'Rolla used to be, and if you've noticed, yesterday's Camry is no larger than the Corolla is now. All Toyota USA would have to do is bring the telescoping wheel option (available in the UK, by the way) to the Yaris, and I'm sure it would drive the final nail in Matrix's coffin.
What I'd like to see is the UK Auris brought over here, and a sedan variant to sell alongside it, like Hyundai have done with the Elantra and Elantra GT.

Didn't like the redesign at first, but it is growing on me. The new Auris is Toyota's answer to VW's Golf, and will be in Japanese and European dealerships by January 2013.
