Toyota Corolla Altis 2010 Facelift - Malaysia

UMW Toyota Motors has officially launched the best ever Toyota Corolla Altis in Malaysia on 23rd September 2010. The newly facelifted Toyota Altis is fully imported from Thailand.

Good news to Toyota car lovers. The facelifted Toyota Corolla Altis is not only upgraded on the cosmetic touch up, but also include engine and transmission upgrade. With the addition of 2.0-litre variant to the line-up, Toyota Altis has 3 types of engine sizes - 1.6-litre, 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre. The ZZ series engine in the existing Toyota Corolla Altis has been replaced with the ZR series Dual VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence) engine. The benefits of the Dual VVT-i are excellent fuel efficiency, more torque at low speed and more power at high speed.

The 1.6-litre engine can produce up to 121hp @ 6000 rpm and max torque of 154Nm @ 5200 rpm while the 1.8-litre engine can produce up to 138hp @ 6400 rpm and max torque of 173 Nm @ 4000 rpm. The 2.0-litre engine produce up to 143hp @ 6200 and 187 Nm @3600 rpm. The 2.0-litre enabled Toyota Altis to compete on the same level with rivals such as Honda Civic, Nissan Sylphy and Mitsubishi Lancer.

Transmission wise, the 1.6-litre Toyota Altis is mated with 4-speed automatic transmission gearbox while the 1.8 and the 2.0-litre models get the new Super CVT-i (Continuous Variable Transmission with intelligence). What you get from the Super CVT-i is seamless acceleration and better fuel efficiency.

Safety wise, Toyota Altis is equipped with 15-inch ventilated disc brakes at the front and 15-inch solid disc brakes at the rear. All variants of Toyota Altis come with Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA). All variants of Toyota Altis also fitted with dual SRS Airbags.

One of the highlight of the new Toyota Altis is the Eco Driving Indicator. With the current expensive petrol price, Toyota has done a good job to educate drivers on economy driving style with the Eco Driving Indicator.

Comfort wise, Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8 and 2.0 are fully equipped with internal climate control air-conditioning system. The air-conditioning system can automatically adjust blower speed to maintain the desired cabin temperature. To make your ride more enjoyable, Toyota Corolla Altis comes with 6-speakers audio system with CD and MP3 support.
