The revised Toyota Corolla Altis has been made available for bookings at dealerships nationwide, according to a press statement by UMW Toyota Motor.
The 2016 Toyota Corolla Altis, avaliable in three variants, features a refreshed design and additional safety features for its updated status. In looks, the car’s front fascia takes up a more menacing front-end with tauter a chrome-accented grille with sleeker headlights and DRLs. The front bumper is locked and loaded with black mesh elements on the lower bumper and elegant foglights.
Moving to the profile, the side of the 2016 Altis is more streamlined compared to the current model. A side mirror with indicator blends rather well with the profile’s silhouette. From the rear, the Altis remains quite true to it already impressive back-end.
Unless otherwise noted, the interior of the revised Altis remained largely unchanged from the outgoing version, which was updated in late 2014. The Altis’ general interior highlights include leather upholstery, a fresh instrument panel with Optitron meters and Multi-info display, and an infotainment system with a 2-DIN head unit with DVD, 7-inch touchscreen and rear view camera. The Bluetooth-enabled unit is compatible with smart devices and offers navigation and voice recognition functions.
The Corolla Altis’ powertrain is similar to the outgoing version, which is primarily the Dual VVT-i Engine with ACIS; paired to Super CVT-i with 7-speed Sports Sequential Shift & Paddle Shift.
