Toyota Altis

The tenth generation Toyota Corolla made its international entry in year of October 2006. Now Toyota will launch the new toyota altis in India in September 2008. With a sharp looking headlamps, grille and the bumper it will certainly not going to be a beat Honda Civic .Instead corolla will represent itself as a good looking car.The current 1.8L engine may be turned into a more powerful and better efficient engine having a torque of 165Nm and 4200 rpm. The 2008 toyota altis will be 10mm longer, 60mm wider and 20mm lower than the current model. The wheelbase will be unchanged at 2,600mm, but with the wider track and lower center of gravity the handling should be noticeably improved. The extra width should also improve cabin space, and although slightly lower, the toyota altis is still 50mm taller than the Honda Civic. The new toyota corolla altis will be powered by a 1.8L engine developing around 140bhp. This engine is a carryover from the existing Toyota Corolla but will be tweaked for better performance. A four speed auto box will be offered as optional. However the new toyota corolla altis won’t come with diesel engine atleast initially. See more research on new cars in India
