There are two engines available to power the saloon. One is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder unit that provides 138bhp and 173Nm. The other is a 1.4-liter diesel unit that produces 87bhp and 205Nm of torque. Both engines are connected to a six-speed manual transmission, with a 7-speed CVT transmission option available on some petrol models as an alternative.
A sleeker pair of new sophisticated Bi-beam LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, a new 3D bumper design, and a wide grille with spherical fog lamps on either side with chrome bezels are among the many new characteristics on the exterior of the automobile.
The overall silhouette of the car has remained largely unchanged, but the profile has been updated with a new stylish set of 16-inch alloy wheels and new, sharper-looking ORVMs that come with integrated turn single lights that are electrically operable.
The console is equipped with seven-inch touchscreen audio, and music may be streamed by USB, aux-in, Bluetooth, and other methods. It also comes with an SD card, a remote control, Mirror Link, an HDMI LCD screen with movie display, and steering-mounted audio controls, among other features.
Toyota has equipped the saloon with several safety features, including dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, vehicle stability control, child restraint system, driver’s knee bolster, speed auto-lock, impact sensing fuel cut, immobilizer with alarm, clutch start system, and height-adjustable front seat belt. Toyota has also included a rear window defogger.

Toyota Corolla first arrived in India in February 2003 in its 9th generation. It was one of the first compact sedans to be introduced in India this millennium. The tenth-gen model, Altis, came out in September 2008. The eleventh-generation model, debuted in May 2014, also has the Altis suffix.
The 12th generation Toyota Corolla, one of the world's best-looking small automobiles, debuted in November 2018. It was initially slated to launch in India in 2020, but demand was too low. Imported C-segment sedans are too pricey in India. More C-segment SUVs have been launched in recent months, causing more problems. As of 2020, Toyota Corolla has been discontinued in India.
Both the 1.8-liter petrol and 1.4-liter diesel engines are offered. The petrol engine produces 140PS and 173Nm and is coupled to a 6-speed manual or CVT automatic transmission. The diesel engine produces 88PS and 205Nm and has a 6-speed manual transmission.
Auto-LED headlights and rain-sensing wipers are standard on the Corolla Altis. It also includes seven airbags, ABS with EBD, and traction control.
In addition to Phantom Brown, the Toyota Corolla comes in Celestial Black, Champagne Mica Metallic, Grey Metallic, Silver Mica Metallic, and Super White II.
While the petrol Corolla Altis is priced between Rs. 16.46 lakhs and Rs. 20.20 lakhs, the diesel models range between Rs. 17.72 lakhs and Rs. 19.37 lakhs. Corolla’s direct competition is the Hyundai Elantra.
An array of comfort features are included, including an 8-way power driver's seat, wireless door lock, reclining rear seat with 60:40 split seat, push start/stop system with cruise control, paddle shifters, lumbar support for the driver's seat, height-adjustable driver's seat, and a heated steering wheel.
There are several safety features, including airbags on the drivers as well as passengers’ side, ABS with EBD, impact sensing fuel cut, speed auto-lock, immobilizer with alarm, clutch start system, height-adjustable front seat belt, and a rear window defogger, amongst others.
A sportier stance is achieved by the addition of new features such as a lengthy wheelbase, bold exterior lines, and other alterations. A chrome grille, LED headlamps, and sleek fog lights with housing add to the sporty look of the front profile.
Compared to the Honda Civic and Mazda 3 Sedan, the performance of the Toyota Corolla Altis is lackluster in the ‘going fast’ department. The Toyota Corolla Altis has a 0-100 km/h time of 11.4 seconds, which is slower than both of its rivals.
The cabin's noise level could be a slight annoyance. While the Mazda 3 sets the bar high, the Corolla can be compared to the Honda Civic in this aspect.
The Toyota Corolla Altis has a wireless phone charger and a huge infotainment screen that may appeal to some buyers. However, the cubby space will begin to seem cramped after a while.
This car is the simplest to drive in traffic and has the most comfortable back seat, not to mention Toyota's well-known customer service support. However, it's not very feature-rich, has lower quality inside, and isn't as good when it comes to spirited driving.
On the bright side, when it comes to safety and practicality for families, the Altis has the best of both worlds. Although Toyota has tried to spice things up with LEDs—a few kinks to the headlights and taillights and trapezoid bumpers—the Corolla still appears to be a conventional car.
The Corolla's back seats are some of the most comfortable in its class of vehicles. There is plenty of room in Octavia's back seat, but the Corolla has a truly exceptional seat. Its headroom, legroom, and crucial thigh support make it the clear winner in this aspect. To make matters even more interesting, there is no other vehicle in this class that comes with an adjustable backrest and an all-flat floor.
The 1.8-liter engine of the Corolla is smooth and easy to operate in stop-and-go traffic because of its linear power delivery. No question, the CVT's inherent ability to deliver torque with zero interruption helps with the power delivery.
Overall, the Toyota Corolla is an easy recommendation if you want sheer comfort and smooth driving in the city. Lastly, the Toyota Corolla is utterly dependable and won’t fail you.
