The All-New Toyota Corolla Altis – A Legend Redefined! [Car Review]

 
The all-new Corolla Altis’ design theme exudes the confidence of a modern, advanced vehicle. With a longer wheelbase and shorter overhangs, the car holds an athletic stance with greater presence. More pronounced flared wheel arches, and a clean yet impactful sculpted surface adds an air of elegance to its sporty exterior.
 
Viewed in profile, a sweeping crease in the body sheet metal spans the length of the sedan and accentuates the integrated door handle design. The exterior tapers towards the front and rear of the vehicle to emphasize its wheel arches, with a longer, faster sloping roofline that blends into a shorter rear deck to give the sedan a sportier image.
 
The curves of this new Altis are indeed nice!
 
And the colour of this car (Grey Metallic) suits the design pretty well.. if not I think Silver would be nice too!
 
Even the tail-lights are pleasant looking to the eyes..
 
 
There are two categories for the new Toyota Corolla Altis, namely the Classic and Elegance.
The one I'm having here is the Elegance.. which is the higher tier as compared to classic.
 
Everytime I drive a Toyota.. I always have this very smooth feeling of the engine.. It accelerates so smoothly that driving the car was so effortless... Not an exception for this All-New Toyota Corolla Altis! Thanks to the 1.6L Dual VVT-i engine.. it exhibits the same driving experience as ever.
 
It can hit a top speed of 185 km/h and travel from 0-100 km/h in 11.1 seconds. Well.. not too bad for a sedan car. :)
 
Interior looks fresh and inviting..
And I actually like the SIMPLE design of the dashboard with large display touch-screen.

Leg room at the back is quite big..
Compare with the leg spaces taken up at the front seats in the previous picture, this Altis is indeed Spacious!
 
Driver's door.

Driver's carpet.
I quite like the idea that they have two knobs to lock the carpet to the ground so that the carpet would not shift here and there due the frequent movements of the leg accelerating and braking.
 
Boot space is huge and deep too!
'Deep' was wad my dad commented when he saw the boot space.
 
If the boot space isn't enough for your stuffs.. the backseats can be folded down for your Extra Long item! :)
 
Now.. its time to Start the engine!
Everytime when you start the car... you would be greeted with a Welcome note on the speedometer!
 
Nice and classy central console.
 
 Smart Start / Stop Engine button
 
 Closer look on the dashboard and controls..
The large touch-screen allows you to display media like video as well..
and the touch-screen sensitivity was very good too.. jus a gentle press on the desired radio station for example, the station would be selected.
 
The touch-screen also allows you see what's behind your car when you're in the Reversed gear.

Nanoe Auto-Climate Aircon - Featuring a nanoe™ generator, the air-conditioning system cleans the air as it cools, suppressing allergens and odour.
 
Electrochromic Mirror - Specially designed for night driving, the mirror automatically dims itself to cut off the glare from the high beams of rear traffic. This is something which I think is very amazing! :)

This was really interesting during my drive when outside was drizzling abit.
You may have selected the wiping mode to be swiping once in a few seconds.. But with the Auto Rain Sensing Wipers.. when it detects more rain, the wipers will swipe faster and when it detects lesser rain.. the wipers will take longer before the next swipe. Intelligent! :)
 
At this point.. the car is at rest.
(Sound like doing some Physics.. haha.)
 
When the car starts to move, the white bar will move as well..
IF you accelerated gently, you will be in the ECO-mode. Hence, saving your petrol! :)
 
Cushion at the centre of the back-seats can be pulled down to create an arm-rest for the passenger.
 
 And you can put two cups in it..
Perhaps your coffee and travel in class.. ;)

Nice Muscular Rim!
 
The Altis can look this Fierce as well!
 
A first in its category, LED headlamps provide excellent visibility under all conditions, while the daytime-running lights add safety and a unique look.
Only the Elegance version has the LED headlamps.
The Classic would have the Halogen headlamps.
 
a view of the car at night!

the back view somehow looks abit like Lexus which I find it very nice and appealing.

 
Everytime you switch off the engine... the car will bid Good-bye to you on the speedometer.
Good-bye! ;)
