New images shed more light on the face-lifted, 2017 Toyota Corolla (Altis in India), which is scheduled for a Turkish launch on June 2016. Most of the exterior updates on the new Corolla revolve around the front fascia which receive sleeker, full-LED headlamps and larger bumper-work with round fog lamps at both ends, while the new bonnet’s contours follow the revised fascia. The sides continue unchanged, apart from a new set of wheels. At the rear, the tail lamps are now LED powered and get new graphics.
The interiors have been perked up with better upholstery, more effective sound insulation and improved materials. The dashboard has been subtly tweaked and now feature round air vents on both sides, apart from leather (?) inserts. The centre console now hosts a fresh Toyota Touch 2 infotainment system with navigation as standard, while the updated instrument cluster now features a 4.2 inch MID display. Overall there’s been a distinctly upmarket flourish in face-lifted Corolla’s cabin.
As for the new safety equipment, the Corolla Altis face-lift gets a pre-collision system (PCS), lane departure alert (LDA) and automatic high beam (AHB).
