The facelifted Corolla Altis was revealed in pictures from earlier this year and Autocar India reports that the facelifted car is expected to make its debut in India in 2017.
The current Toyota Corolla Altis is currently outselling its closest rival, the Skoda Octavia by a margin of 2.5 to one and this mainly due to the amount of trust India has in the Corolla brand. The Corolla Altis, which was launched in India in 2014, has also been attracting a more youthful set of buyers thanks to its edgy design.
The new car looks a lot sharper than its current iteration and this is quite evident up front where the grille has gotten narrower and the swept back angular headlights have also become a lot more edgier and feature a strip of daytime running lights.
The front bumper also looks more angular than before and features a large air dam in the centre and cutouts for the fog lamps on either side. At the rear end, the tail lamps have been redesigned as well.
Inside, the facelifted car features a new 7-inch touchscreen display that will house the infotainment system and the a new 4.2-inch multi-information display in the new instrument console.
The 2017 Toyota Corolla Altis is expected to use the same 1.8-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines as before and will be offered with both the six-speed manual and the 7-speed automatic gearbox.
Prices for the new Corolla Altis are expected to start at around the current car's starting price of Rs. 14.2 lakhs.
