144hp in North America... that's about 8-10hp more than the current Corolla/iM we currently get.
I'd buy one if it had the 2.5L 2ARFE, Toyota should have made this a replacement for the tC in the North American Market. The new Civics are killing the Corolla and iM in sales, more hp via turbocharged motors.
Toyota keeps thinking people want boring old people cars in the Corollas, where Honda knows young people will buy a Civic over the boring Corolla, and of course delivers what they're looking for. What they should do is create a couple of variants of the 8ARFTS 2.0L Turbo and stuff it into the Corolla/iM/C-HR and give them a Civic Si (200hp'ish) and Type-R fighter (300hp'ish)
A C-HR with a 3.5L 2GRFE would just make it a replacement for the outgoing Venza on this end... except on a diet, lol
