Toyota India is planning to launch a facelifted Corolla Altis. The 2011 Corolla Altis was spotted on test at Malleshwaram, Bangalore. The new model incorporates slight design changes and addition of a few new features. There is no change to the engines and the price is set to be hiked marginally when the 2011 Toyota Corolla goes on sale in India by March, 2011. Toyota might launch a 1.6 liter petrol version of the Corolla Altis, taking the fight directly to the Honda City.
A new front features a redesigned bumper, radiator grille and lower grille. At the rear, comprehensive changes to the license plate garnish, combination lamps, bumper and low level reflectors have been incorporated. A new, flat bottomed steering wheel, finished in leather on higher grade models, features a thicker, more comfortable grip cross section. The combination meter design features a colour change from amber to white, and the instrument panel and door handle trim are now finished in high brightness silver coating. The same finish is also applied to the centre console and door switch surrounds. A wireless trunk opening function has been added.
