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.

The Toyota Corolla facelift will launch in India in 2017.
