Thailand – Toyota Corolla Altis ESport variant added to the lineup

Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

Hot on the heels of the new Corolla Altis’s launch in Thailand comes the sedan’s sporty version called the Altis ESport (E stands for Excellence).

Toyota India opened bookings for the new Corolla at the Auto Expo earlier this month. The ESport could be introduced in India once the demand for the regular variants is addressed, to test the response for a sportier variant, as they have done before with Etios, Fortuner and the Corolla carlines.

Judging by the extravagant look, don’t assume that Toyota have raised the output or performance of the ESport as its exactly the same as the regular variant.

Priced at the top-end of the variant ladder, the ESport is an enriched variant of the Altis. The car’s suspension is tweaked for a firmer ride and externally, an underbody diffuser and aerodynamic fins add to the car’s sporting feel.
