India-bound 2017 Toyota Corolla (facelift) seen undisguised in Taiwan
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
To launch in India in 2017.
Changes to the exterior include redesigned front-end with sleeker LED headlamps, radiator grille and bumper; new design 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels, thinner chrome boot applique and new LED-powered taillamps. Three new exterior color choices have been introduced: Platinum Bronze, Tokyo Red and Earth Bronze.
Changes are limited in the interior which features new HVAC controls on the centre console and vents on the dashboard, improved quality of materials and upholstery, and new standard Touch 2 infotainment system with navigation.
In Taiwan, the facelifted Corolla is likely to continue offering the 1.8L 2ZR-FE inline 4-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 140 PS and 17.6 kgm of peak torque. The only transmission option is a Super CVT-i that sends power to the front wheels. Along with the 1.8L petrol variant, the India-spec Corolla will also offer the 88 hp 1.4L D-4D turbodiesel paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
