Shrawan Raja,

I’m the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

In a surprise or sorts, Toyota has opted for the seven-speed CVT on the facelifted Corolla Altis rumored to debut next month, Autocar India reports. The current Corolla employs an old 4-speed torque-converter.

Toyota will continue offering the same manual transmission and engines – 1.8-liter petrol and 1.4-liter diesel, will also be retained. This puts an end to speculations of a smaller 1.6-liter petrol engine to take on the Honda City.

The new Altis will come with refreshed looks and minor interior changes. The Altis was given a facelift back in 2008 and since then there hasn’t been any cosmetic upgrades barring the diesel variant on which a mesh grille was introduced.
