China's Toyota Altis equivalent gets new 1.2-litre turbo petrol

By Faiming_low on 04 Nov 2016 in New model, Engine

Attached Image The Toyota Levin, China's version of our ever-popular Corolla Altis, gains a brand new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine and some new LED daytime running lights. No, the car is not entirely similar to what we get here as it is a combined effort of GAC-Toyota (Guangqi-Toyota) meant for its home market.

Attached Image The new downsized engine replaces the 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated engine and with the help of turbocharging and direct injection, it puts out 116bhp and 185Nm of torque. While power is down by a few horses, torque is increased by a significant 30Nm and that pulling power is maintained from 1,500rpm to 4,000rpm.

Attached Image This engine is also found in the new Auris in Europe and is paired to a CVT gearbox. In this configuration, fuel consumption is an impressive 18.4km/L, with some credit going to the new start stop system that is standard.

Attached Image It is not known whether we will get the engine in time to come.
