The tenth generation of one of the world’s best-selling model lines has undergone significant changes to bring a new standard of automotive excellence in this class of cars. Already possessing a strong image of an advanced sedan, the new Toyota Corolla Altis for 2010 now also has a sporty and distinctive character with an all-new powertrain.
We had the opportunity to drive the new Altis earlier this month at the Sepang International Circuit and liked it. It's comfortable, drives well, and with the higher end models, is well equipped with the latest gizmo's and the 7-speed CVT transmission is silky smooth. Perfect for city and highway cruising.
While the order books for the car was officially opened about a month ago and currently orders stand in the hundreds, the new Corolla Altis was officially unveiled today.
The new Corolla Altis is equipped with a familiar but new exterior for a more dynamic and sporty look with new headlamps, front grille and rear tail lamps that present a sporty style sedan. The interior is further enhanced presenting a luxurious image with a combination of leather and wood on the steering and gear knob as well as the perforated leather seats that offer great comfort.
The new Corolla Altis is a completely built-up (CBU) unit, manufactured in Thailand and is available in four variants such as the Altis 1.6E, Altis 1.8E, Altis 1.8G and the new variant - Altis 2.0V.
This sporty and dynamic looking model is equipped with a powerful engine with Dual VVT- i (variable valve timing – intelligent) that offers power and performance, and the Super CVT-i with 7 speed sports sequential shift provides improved fuel efficiency, as well as smooth and responsive gear shifts.
