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.
