Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Will reportedly go on sale this month.

As reported last month by Autocar India, the 2017 Toyota Corolla is arriving in India this month. According to a report from CarDekho this week, bookings for the facelifted Toyota Corolla are now open. Toyota Kirloskar Motor is yet to announce the start of the bookings publicly, so it may just be that some dealers are taking orders.

Launched overseas last year, the 2017 Toyota Corolla incorporates the Japanese automaker’s new Under Priority and Keen Look design. The front-end features a slimmer radiator grille, new LED headlamp clusters, new LED light guides, modified bumper and a larger air dam grille. The sides more or less remain the same, with a new chrome trim finish on the door handles and new alloy wheels designs in 16- and 17-inch sizes as the only key changes. At the rear, there’s new chrome garnish on the trunk lid and new LED tail lamp clusters.

Interior changes should include new MID with updated software, HVAC vents in a new shape, redesigned panel for the HVAC controls on the centre console and a new touchscreen infotainment system with navigation. The aforementioned exterior changes and these interior changes are from the international version, and the Indian-spec version may have some market-specific variations.
