Corolla Altis Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Corolla Altis

The Corolla Altis has always been one boring looking car, but not the current generation one. Toyota has made the Corolla Altis very edgy and aerodynamic, especially from the front. The full LED headlamps which were introduced in this version do make the Corolla Altis look contemporary.

When it comes to midsize sedan segment, the Toyota Corolla Altis exhibits the best-in-class space levels, with segment-leading legroom and knee room. The seats themselves are very comfortable with excellent under thigh support and cushioning.

The midsize sedans usually demand higher maintenance and ownership costs, but that’s not a true case with Toyota Corolla Altis. Toyota is already well known for the aspects of quality and reliability when it comes to after-sales experience, and the Corolla Altis excels very well with a hassle-free experience.

Things We Dont Like in Corolla Altis

The Toyota Corolla Altis looks sharp and has good road presence as far as its exterior design is concerned. However, the interior cabin design of the Corolla Altis has begun to show it’s age. The almost flat and drab design of the dashboard and limited comfort and convenience features do limit the modernity of the car from the inside.

When compared to the competition, the Toyota Corolla Altis lacks a number of comfort and convenience features which makes it feel lesser premium and modern. Features like an electric sunroof and rear AC vents, which are considered as essential ones in a premium car of this category have been given a miss in the Corolla Altis.

Recent Updates of Toyota Corolla Altis

The Corolla Altis has been in the market for over many years now and it has always been popular for its performance and space that it offers to its occupants rather than its design. However, the current generation of the Corolla Altis is an exception to this as it gets a stylish and modern exterior that is complemented by an aerodynamic and sporty design. On the inside, the Altis gets a well-designed cabin layout with ample legroom and headspace for its passengers. The Altis is available in three variants in the market – 1.8E, 1.8G and 2.0V. The base variant is powered by a 1.8-litre engine that produces 139 PS of power at 6400 rpm and 173 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. Safety kit on this sedan includes anti-lock braking system with EBD and brake assist, vehicle stability control, traction control, and dual airbags.

Launched in 1966  and being one of the best selling cars worldwide, Toyota Corolla has ruled the C-segment for nearly five decades now. So much was Corolla's craze that back in 1997 it became the most sold nameplate in the world. 11 generations and 40 million units are figures enough to explain just what legacy the name Toyota Corolla has in the global market.
The 11th generation Toyota Corolla Altis is clearly technically and aesthetically the most evolved Corolla ever produced till date and the company has made clear that this time around the major focus is on leaving-behind the “executive” tag making the design more athletic to appeal to a much younger audiences. Produced in Malaysia under three variants – Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8E, Altis 1.8G and Altis 2.0V, all of which run on Super CVT-i Auto transmission with 7 speed sequential shift, Corolla feels as sporty as it could get. With sports combination leather seats and an age old dashboard which looks vintage in design and yet is highly tech-savvy, the 11th generation Altis designing is like a “breath of fresh air” in the C-segment.
Corolla Altis 2.0V employs a 3ZR-FE engine while both the other variants get hold of a 2ZR-FE engine. Both of these engines involve a 4 cylinder, 16 valve DOHC mechanism which for the case of the 2.0-litre engine draws a maximum power of 145 PS at 6200 rpm in line with a maximum starting torque measuring 187 Nm at 3600 rpm. The power output drops down a little with 1.8-litre engine drawing out maximum output measuring 139 PS at 6400 rpm. The maximum starting torque in this measures 173 Nm at 4000 rpm. Employed with Dual VVT-i and ACIS technologies the acceleration level increases, fuel economy increases, power delivery increases and NVH level decreases, everything you want from your engine.

Interior & Features

The interior of Corolla seems like a tribute to its cultural heritage, with the dashboard been given a vintage styling alongside many futuristic features, this makes Corolla Altis a perfect blend of class and comfort. The base variant gets hold of standard fabric seats which offer a decent comfort level. Step up a level and with the top two variants you get seats designed keeping in mind sports aesthetics. Corolla Altis 2.0V gives up the fabric tag and has leather seats employed with all black interior adding a bit of extra panache to your cabin. All the required comfort controls are made available at your finger tips on your steering-wheel from audio controls to bluetooth hands free control to MID functions( 2.0V & 1.8G), up front the steering wheel is an Optitron Meter Combination which comes with MID (Multi-Information Display), this gives you data regarding your average fuel consumption, overall fuel consumption, outside temperature and many more. The 2.0V and 1.8G variants come equipped with a big 7 inch display with an in built reverse camera to spot any object on the back of the car.

Interior Comfort

Toyota Corolla Altis is loaded with comfort filled features for you and your family to enjoy. Auto Air-Cooling ensures that a blast of fresh cooled air strikes each passenger at same temperature. Back seats are made in 60:40 split fashion added with reclining and folding functions which increases your boot space many fold. The top variant 2.0V has received some luxury comfort upgrades like cruise control and auto electro Chromic mirror which reduces any sort of glare to distract the driver in the night.

Interior Dimensions

The wheelbase has been extended 100 metres in the new variant, which means there is extended cabin space, more legroom and more ride stability. The boot space is decent, measuring 470 litres in volumetric terms, this can be easily increased by folding the 60:40 rear seats.

Stereo and Accessories

Audio comfort in a car is as import as aesthetic comfort, especially when it comes to a vacation drive with your family. Toyota leaves no leaf unturned in this segment fitting an efficient 2-DIN Head Unit DVD Player with 7-inch Touch Screen, Tuner, MP3, AUX-Jack, USB, SD Card Slot, Bluetooth, Smartphone Link, Voice Recognition and Reverse Camera on its dashboard for two of its variants (2.0V and 1.8G) while the base variant 1.8E is employed with a rather primitive 2-DIN Head Unit CD Player with Tuner, MP3, AUX-Jack, USB and Bluetooth. In addition to this you have the optional provision of employing a DVD-AVN audio system which comes with 2-DIN Head Unit DVD Player with 7-Inch Touch Screen, Tuner, MP3, AUX-Jack, USB, SD Card Slot, Bluetooth, Smartphone Link, Voice Recognition, Navigation System and Reverse Camera.


The 11th generation Toyota Corolla Altis is 80mm longer, 16mm wider and a bit on the shorter end than the previous Altis and hence sports a more “sporty” and aerodynamic exterior, perfect to be called a “modern executive” sedan. Radiator grille on the front has changed and embodied with smoke-finish (only for 2.0V) it adds to the overall dynamism of the vehicle. On the sides of this grille you will find LED Projector Headlamps which come with Auto On/Off for providing a much better illumination for the rider which saving excess energy. The top variant gets additional privilege of auto leveling and Daytime Running Lights. The front windshield is designed to decrease the interior NVH level (Noise-Vibrations-Harshness). Toyota Corolla Altis is made available in 5 color variants – Metallic dark drown, attitude black, pearl white, metallic silver and metallic gray.

Exterior Measurements

As mentioned before, the new Toyota Corolla Altis is now longer than previous generation by 80 mm in length and 16 mm in width. The overall dimensions of the car measure 4620mm x 1776mm x 1460mm (L X B X H), also the wheelbase has increased now measuring 2700mm. Ground clearance offered by the sedan is 130 mm.


There is no space for steel rims for a car like this, all the three variants come with alloy rims. 1.8G and 1.8E variants have 16 inch alloy rims fitted on them and this figure rises to 17 in 2.0V. The tyre size is 215/45 R17 for the top variant while the 1.8-litre variants employ a tyre size measuring 205/55 R16.

Mileage Running Cost

Credits to the Dual VVT-i technology employed with ACIS, the fuel consumption of Corolla decreases significantly. For a dedicated D-segment sedan, the 1.8 litre variants deliver a higher than average 14.4 km/l mileage and although the figures decrease a notch for 2.0 litre engine variant at a combined mileage of 11.63 km/l, it still remains comfortably ahead of many competitors.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The top variant Corolla Altis 2.0V comes embedded with a 3ZR-FE engine while the lower capacity Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8G and Altis 1.8E employ a 2ZR-FE engine. The mechanism employed for both the engines however is the same having 4 cylinder, 4 valves per cylinder DOHC mechanism with Dual VVT-i and ACIS which in turn increases the pick up, mileage and power output of the car. The maximum power output drawn out of the top variant 2.0V is a decent 145 PS at 6200 rpm while the maximum drawn torque is 187 Nm at 3600 rpm. The maximum power out of the 1.8-litre engine on the other hand measures 139 PS at 6400 rpm in line with the maximum torque output measuring 173 Nm at 4000 rpm. Performance of the car is further increased because of the aerodynamic design, acoustic windshield, aerostability fins and steel panels with high tensile strength. The optional Paddle shift feature available only on the 2.0V variant further enhances the performance of the Altis making it more sporty.


The top variant Corolla Altis 2.0V comes packing with an advanced 3ZR-FE engine while Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8G and Altis 1.8E employ a 2ZR-FE engine, both of the engine variants apply mechanism having 4 cylinder, 4 valves per cylinder DOHC mechanism with Dual VVT-i and ACIS which in turn increases the power output, fuel economy and overall performance of the car. As such, the maximum power output drawn out of the top variant 2.0V is a decent 145 PS at 6200 rpm while the maximum drawn torque is 187 Nm at 3600 rpm. The maximum power out of the 1.8-litre engine on the other hand measures 139 PS at 6400 rpm in line with the maximum torque output measuring 173 Nm at 4000 rpm.

Acceleration and Pick Up

Once again, benefited from the employment of Dual VVT-i and ACIS on its engine, the acceleration of Altis gets a heavy boost. The 1.8-litre variant races from 0-100 km/hr at a highly impressive 9.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 180 km/hr. Interestingly, the top variant with 2.0-litre petrol motor lags behind a split of a second clocking 10 seconds to reach 100kmph.

Braking & Safety

Toyota Corolla has been known throughout generations for its superior handling. The 11th generation takes this legacy a step further employing front MacPherson Strut suspension with stabilizer. Rear of Altis gets hold of Torsion Beam suspension with stabilizer. For braking ventilated disc brakes are applied on the front with solid disc brakes maintaining their place on the rear.

Safety and Security

With Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) coupled alongside Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA) the drive stays on track even on slippery roads and prevents wheel lock. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC) help the drive keep a firm grasp on road controlling the engine output and brake hydraulic pressure (Only for 2.0V). Dual Airbags are applied on front with an optional feature of applying 7 SRS airbags to enhance your safety. The designing is done with Toyota forte GOA body which absorbs the impact of collision throughout the body and reduces chances of injury to passengers.
