2019 12th Gen Toyota Corolla Sedan

Recommended Posts

The question is when will BM launch the new Altis. I expect the first shipment of the stock to be sold out once it is available for booking.

Not so fast bro. JDM uses the better and more sporty looking front end like the US and Euro market model. And JDM Corolla offers all the best engines Toyota have in their inventory

SE Asia version looks alot worst and a more blunt nose  as shown below

Actually each variant, the styling this time round is really not too bad looking.

Interior indeed not bad looking. Exterior i find the new altis and the previous facelift altis both not bad looking.

Look at the default Malaysia vaiant center console display, it's that old school in mount 6.5 inch with thick bezel like some after market radio system like our current facelift altis, the UI so cmi while Japanese new corolla uses the full actual display with Apple Carplay support and come with head up display. All come with Toyota safely sense. 

I think Japanese JDM sedan variant technology inside, it's MIJ, the front light sleeker and better engine option is quite worth that PI bring the 2WD variant in as we don't need E-Four variant which is the highest variant 

1. Hybrid W x B 1.8 + Motor, this is the second highest spec.

2. W x B 1.8 CVT 

3. Hybrid S 1.8 + Motor

4. S 1.8 CVT 

5. Hybrid GS 1.8 + Motor

6. G 1.8 CVT

Wonder which variant will BM brings in to sell here? And what will be the final design of the new altis?

Please refer to Toyota Thailand URL for more info. JDM ones doesn't apply to us. JDM, North America and Europe Corollas uses way more advanced engines as compared to our SE Asia markets ones. SE Asia is a good place for big companies to dump their valueless hardware here and market them like they are prized collectibles. This is where easy profits came in. How else do u explain POS eg Avanza, Innova etc still able to sell in this part of the world despite there atrocious crude and rough platform?

Probably variant wise might be the same as current, as in the availability of basic and a top spec model. Design wise, don't think will differ much externally from the Thai models. Maybe just some de-chrome bits and matt black interior trims over those glossy ones to differ between variants. 

Hopefully BM models will not have those 2-Din headunit, which looks less cohesive to the rest of the interior, like the Camry. Because for latest Altis, factory fitted ones, originally is a thin tablet like stuck on piece at the dash top which doesn't look too bad. 

Taiwan version ones is like a big block stuck to the dash top because the headunit is not those thin tablet like but a normal 2-Din radio size fitting.

We will get the large 2DIN hole.

It was BM policy to del ALL factory HU whenever possible to save on OMV. This is why even though the new Camry has s smooth flowing HU that fit flush with the dash  from the factory, BM asked the Thai factory to del that and the car came to SG with a big 2DIN hole. That certainly save a few dollars on the OMV.. Just don't ask why other AD can sell their same class of cars for LESS money yet came fully equipped with no ugly big hole on the dash

BM locally fitted 2DIN HU is extremely difficult to use too. Very confusing graphics 

Only exception is the Prius sedan, becos the HU also display important hybrid related data so BM cannot delete it.

This time round, some other Asean countries, have received the new Corolla Altis much faster than us. Seems like ours still clearing the current stock of Altis. No news on the launch of the new model yet.

The new altis should reached sg first quarter of 2020. End of this year maybe not. Unless BM has cleared all the current gen altis. No wonder recently there is always promotion on altis.

White GR Sports look good. 

Whats the point of all these body kits if our G12 Corolla remains the same antique underpowered 1.6L like today? We cannot even get a proper 1.8L model like we used to do back in the G9 Altis days 

Anyway that bodykit looked so tired these days. Toyota still believes bodykits can make their cars go faster. The kit just doesn't have the kind of subtle elegance modern cars are designed around. This kit made the G12 looked like the crude and brash bodykits as found in the G9 Hipporolla 

That factory HU tiny buttons looked so cheap and difficult to read and use.

Ya man. Bodykit is B.S. I rather have a powerful engine with a normal body style.

Ahhhh...now i see why switching off the DRL is so important to you...especially so in dark dark car parks and you need to keep the engine and aircon running right?? 😂

Guess he doesn't know that leaving a car engine idling will result in contribution to nation building 🤣

Latest BM pricelist no longer lists Elegance model for current Altis, guess they have cleared stocks for that? Probably still trying to clear Standard trim stocks. 🤣
