The 11th generation 2014 Toyota Corolla Altis had its Indian debut at the Auto Expo. Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) announced the sedan with its engine options and features for India, apart from announcing that bookings for the car are now open. The sales launch and price announcement will take place in May 2014.

The Corolla Altis for India is available with a petrol and diesel engine. The petrol motor is the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder with Dual VVT-i producing 140 PS at 6,400 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a Super CVT 7-speed automatic gearbox.

The diesel Corolla continues to use the 1.4-liter four-cylinder D-4D engine outputting 88.4 PS at 3,800 rpm and is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission.

The new Altis measures 4,620 mm in length, 1,776 mm in width and 1,475 mm in height and a wheelbase of 2,700 mm. The wheelbase has increased by 100 mm compared to the previous generation model, and as a result, rear seat legroom has increased by the same amount. Toyota will offer reclining rear seats on the car to further enhance comfort for rear seat passengers.

Top-end variants will feature LED headlamps, LED clearance Lamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, dual-tone interiors, push start/stop button, smart entry, rain sensor, paddle shifts, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with USB, Bluetooth, navigation and reverse camera.

    Toyota…. hmm what can i say…. Etios Grill, Honda Accord Headlamps, Chevy Cruze wedge on the Headlamp kit, Mercedes E class tail light (which first was copied by Toyota in Camry) and yes like Hemnat pointed pointed out 70’s AC vents in the Center console…. hey.. that would be wha tthe would call cost cutting in R&D design… no pun intended…

    I don’t like the front grill.
    The interiors are clean and elegant.
    The diesel engine is really puny! 1.4l gives only 88ps for a D segment sedan!

    The diesel engine is really puny! 1.4l without turbocharging gives only 88ps for a D segment sedan!

    Toyota, i was hoping you would get powerful engine with this facelift, again holding on to the same 1.4 ltr? which does the duty on etios?? i guess if Toyota has launched Innova now they would have put 1.4 ltr engine only to compete with maruti ertiga

  5. Hemnat says:

    Whats with the dashboard design guys? Got inspiration from the guys who designed the dash of the Honda city at Honda? The dashboard is least bit related to the exterior .. Looks like a sports sedan with an etios interior….and whats with the 70’s type ac vents?

  6. Prabhu says:

    Come on Toyota, a 1.4 liter Diesel producing just 88ps on this car?? compare that with 127 ps made by the 1.6 liter Verna. A 1.6 or 1.8 diesel with a strong performance would work wonders for the Corolla

  7. Deepak Chablani says:

    Toyota is finally getting contemporary with their design language. Though I strongly feel there’s an overdose of chrome !

    Massive car with tiny engine. What a deal breaker. :-/
