Slotting in between the Corolla Axio/Altis and the Camry in terms of size, the car offered quite a huge amount of space for a Cat A COE car.
In this facelift, both models get a heavily-revised front that largely unify their front end look. High grade variants get bi-beam LED headlights while standard models get halogens. The rear tail lights get darker LED tail lights as standard.
Inside, a refreshed center console and a new steering wheel make up most of the change. The instrument cluster gets a new 4.2-inch TFT LCD colour multi-info display too. With brown-coloured leather upholstery getting more popular now, would-be buyers will be glad that both the Allion and the Premio can be had with this option.
As for the engines, they remain the same which means both cars can be had with either a 107bhp 1.5-litre, a 141bhp 1.8-litre or a 150bhp 2.0-litre petrol. All are natural aspirated engines and are mated to a Super CVT-i automatic transmission.
