2012, 2013 Corolla will be almost the same as the 2011 model.
A new version will come in 2014/2015.

You might not be right about that! Toyota changes the design of its cars on the second year after refresh, so I believe they will have 2012 Toyota Corolla in August 2011, and later on introduce completely new design 2013 Toyota Corolla in January-April 2012.
This is just a guess; however, they have to do it, if they want to be competitive to new Focus, Elantra, Civic....

I test drove the 2011 Corolla and hated it so I just bought a 2011 Fiesta SES. For the same money I got leather, heated seats, Sync, satellite radio, push button start, Dual clutch automated 6 speed transmission and it is rated way better than the Corolla. I just traded my last Toyota in for it so hey Toyota are you listening? Take your 4 speed transmission Model T and re-design it before its too late.

This very well may be true. Ninth generation Corolla debuted in Jan. 2002 as a 2003 model and remained being built through Nov./Dec. 2007. as 2008 model year. The ninth generation Corolla lasted for six years rather than the typical 5-year cycle. Toyota could decide to keep the 10th generation around for 6 years as well. There are rumors out there that also say Toyota is delaying the introduction of the 11th generation to really get things right with the next Corolla.
In my opinion, it would be wise for Toyota to update the current Corolla's powertrain to improve fuel economy, add more preferred options available in cars of the compact class (i.e., Civic, Elentra, Focus, Cruze). I really can't see this current Corolla surviving another 2+years without any slight updates already found across the compact car class. Sure it is a reliable car, but people expect and want more as offered by the competition.
