Toyota has been updating its fleet and after the Camry, it is Corolla Altis’ turn to receive its share of updates. The current generation of the Corolla Altis has been around since 2014 and the changes to the car will be a part of its mid-life update. While we expected it to get a facelift as well, akin to the Thailand car, it might turn out to be an equipment update only.
Like the Camry, the Corolla might also get LED illumination for the headlamps as well as the fog lamps. It will certainly get new alloys wheels. On the inside, the infotainment system might get software updates along with a few other additions to the equipment list. The Corolla Altis gets driver power seat, paddle shifts and automatic climate control along with rain-sensing wipers in the top-spec trims.
Under the hood, it will continue to have the 1.8-litre petrol engine that develops 138bhp and comes mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and a seven-speed CVT automatic. It will also get the 1.4-litre diesel engine that develops 87bhp of power and 205 Nm of torque mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
