Toyota Corolla Altis facelift photos revealed

By Faiming_low on 24 Mar 2016 in New model

Attached Image The best selling model in Toyota's lineup has received some upgrades for its 2017 facelift and here's a sneak peak at how it will look like. The 11th generation of the Corolla is offered in approximately 150 countries all over the world and accounts for 20 percent of Toyota's global sales.

Attached Image What's new for this slight facelift include a new bumper and a new sleeker grille that’s flanked by redesigned headlamps. At the rear, the Corolla Altis sports a new pair of LED tail lights. New 16-inch and 17-inch wheels wrap up the cosmetic changes on the outside.

Inside, the car gets a significant update in terms of safety. European bound cars are set to get Toyota's Safety Sense system, with Lane Departure Alert, Pre-Collision System, Road Sign Assist and Automatic High Beam all included as standard equipment. Whether we will get these features or not remains to be seen. Mechanically, there should not be any change to the 1.6-litre engine and the CVT automatic gearbox.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

I hope that with Komoco bringing in a well-specificed Elantra, Borneo, Kah and Tan Chong will stop giving us low spec Cat A cars... or at least give us an option to choose a higher spec car. Safety equipment should not be tossed out just to get a low OMV! I'd consider an Altis as a first choice vehicle if it had better safety equipment. As it currently is, I wouldn't even have it as a 2nd choice. Thank you to dealers like Subaru and Suzuki who do bring in cars with 6 airbags, VSC, etc.

face lift or no lift is not important, improve safety feature is most critical, initially I considered Altis and civic, but it only offer 2 airbags and no traction control, don't mention USA and Euro, even in China and India also don't allow this kind of poor safety equipped cars on road, don't understand our LTA how can pass the 2 bugs inspection, really appreciate Subaru, equipped conti grade safety features but still retain in budget car price

The ugly truth is, the more specs, the higher the cost, taking into consideration the taxes.

 

Altis is now selling at $103K. With top end specs, it would set you back by an additional $10K at least, inclusive taxes.

 

That kind of money could get you a Subaru Forester.

Do not even have the basic cruise control function.

Some Singaporean simply just love the reliability of its engine over the safety. Toyota FC slightly better  than others that's because the body is light with thin steel and less safety features.

However, some people have turned to Honda Vezel for those who love Japanese car. Vezel is all over the place just like the good old Lancer on the road.
