Japanese car giant Toyota today launched a cheaper variant of its Corolla Altis D segment sedan. The new variant comes with an automatic transmission and being called as 1.8 G-HV. The car’s seven speed automatic gearbox is mated to a 1.8 liter VVT petrol engine.
This variant is price at Rs.1,376,000 and is almost Rs.125,000 cheaper than top of the line automatic variant. The car also comes with a few upmarket features like a touchscreen DVD console with Bluetooth connectivity. However, features like electric seats, leather upholstery, Xenons with headlamp washers, retractable rear sun shade, start/stop button, smart entry and wooden wrap on steering wheel have been shown the door in interest of competitive pricing. Expect this budget end automatic variant of the car to battle it out against a host of auto tranny equipped D segment cars.
