Toyota's (NYSE:TM) Corolla is one of the world's best-selling cars, and the company hopes to build on that success with this all-new version, which will be at U.S. dealers soon. The company announced U.S. pricing for its mainstay compact this past week, and to no surprise, Toyota appears determined to offer good value -- and to undercut the Corolla's biggest global rival, Ford's (NYSE:F) Focus.

Will the new Corolla help Toyota regain lost ground in the U.S.? In this video, Fool contributor John Rosevear looks at how the new car stacks up -- and gives his thoughts on whether it will succeed in what has become a fiercely competitive market segment.
