Toyota’s new Corolla Altis was presented to us at the Indian Auto Expo that was held at Greater Noida in February and at first glance itself, it was understood that it was a very capable car. Now the car will be launched very soon and are Toyota is already taking bookings. Plus as seen in the last image the car is also been displayed at the dealerships.
As we pointed out in our Corolla Altis first look, the car will be powered by either a 1.8 litre, dual VVT-i petrol engine that generates 138 bhp or a 1.4 litre, D-4D diesel engine that delivers 87 bhp. While the diesel version comes only with a 6 speed manual gearbox, buyers of the petrol version have the option of choosing between a 6 speed manual and a 7 speed CVT-i automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
The new Toyota Corolla Altis will be equipped with features like a push button engine ignition, a 7 inch touchscreen audio system, a reversing camera, a sat-nav system, voice recognition, bluetooth connectivity, leather upholstery, rain sensing wipers, a 12 volt socket at the rear, keyless entry, dual front airbags and ABS.
This new sedan will come in 5 trim levels for the petrol version – J, G, G (CVT), GL and VL; and 4 trim levels for the diesel version – J, J(S), G and GL. Customers can also choose from 7 colour options for this car – Celestial Black, Blue Metallic, Silver Mica Metallic, Super White, Champagne Mica Metallic, Grey Metallic and White Pearl Crystal Shine.
