July seems to be the month of new launches. First the Nissan Micra, then the Fiat Grande Punto 90bhp and now Toyota has decided to launch the much awaited diesel version of the Corolla Altis in the third week of July. The Corolla diesel will be powered by a 1.4 ltr common rail engine producing 90bhp and drive will be provided with the help of a 6 speed gearbox. This new engine is expected to achieve high fuel efficiency figures.

Besides the engine, there will be a few cosmetic changes which will include a new front grille and a new light assembly. It is expected to be costlier than the existing version by about 1 lakh.
