Could This Be The New Toyota Corolla Altis Shown In This Safety Video?

At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Toyota played a video that demonstrated the various safety and driver assist systems on its cars. In the video, we see an animated Toyota Corolla sedan but this one looks a little different from the current model. This leads us to believe that the vehicle shown could be the facelift model for the ASEAN and European-spec Corolla. In Malaysia, we know it better as the Toyota Corolla Altis.

Should this be the facelift to the Corolla, we are looking at a redesigned front fascia which appears less aggressive with more subtle edges and less usage of chrome on the grille. At the rear, we spot a thicker chrome bar that links the two slimmer tail lights.

As a comparison, this is what the current Toyota Corolla Altis looks like:

Just last month, the company unveiled what is said to be the new Toyota Corolla Hybrid in China, the first ever in the range and the front-end design shares many similarities with what is shown in the safety demonstration video. Chinese media reported that the Corolla is powered by a 1.5-litre Atkinson cycle engine and assisted by an electric motor.

We’ll have to wait until it is officially but do stay tuned for more updates.

About Gerard

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
