Not bad, not fantastic either. Still seems to fall short of a high trim Cruze or Elantra.
The pics you posted look way off in terms of detail and quality. They look almost like amateur renders. Will wait for official photos.

The anonymity of the internet brings out the worst in everyone.
The car will always be mediocre at best for the U.S. Mind you, this is an international car sold everywhere in almost every nation on Earth. It can be sparse (as in the U.S. version) or it can be tarted-up a bit with luxury goodies (as in Asia and Europe).
It must appeal to a number of tastes, without being too polar in design, performance, and amenities; all the while being cost efficient.
Toyota knows its target market. If people want something else, they've gotta look at something else...

I have been in it, and it is all right... few pieces look weird, rest looks great. Improvement overall in every way from old Auris/Corolla. Usually Corolla has nicer interior than Auris though so I am not sure if it will be exactly the same.
