Toyota is all set to launch the Etios Cross and new Corolla Altis next month. While the Etios Cross will be launched first within 12 days time the Corolla Altis will be launched towards May end. Both were showcased at the Auto Expo 2014 and speaking to a few dealers, we have learnt that both cars are generating quite a lot interest. As you can see below, the Etios Cross has started arriving at the dealerships while the Corolla Altis will follow soon.
Bookings are been taken for quite some time now with an amount of Rs 50,000 and the Altis in particular is seeing strong demand. The Etios Cross as you know will compete with the Cross Polo and Ford EcoSport plus the Fiat Avventura which will be launched soon also.
The new Corolla Altis get a new design which is sharper and yes more features. The plus points of a comfy rear seat remains. There are no changes to the engine line-up and the new Corolla will have a six-speed manual and a seven-speed automatic gearbox for the petrol (diesel only gets manual).
