Nice scoop in there @RECOMPOSE.
Doesn't seem to have any other changes than the one launched in Malaysia.
Only hope they bring in the 2.0l euro spec d-4d(highly unlikely).
And also the 7spd a/t and the 1.6 to fight the City segment.

Nice scoop recompose, we can notice few changes to rear lights and front grille apart from that I am unable to notice any other changes. Interior more or less looks the same except the silver cover on the steering.

I would love to hear some information about the engine, can someone throw light in to it??

Is it only me who feels the grill is too Etios-ish? I just love the grill of the diesel Altis, wish they would have given the same here.

Could't tell if it was a diesel and I couldnt hear the car running (If that even makes a difference for the Corolla). The only thing the guy conceded was that it was the Corolla (D uh moment), and its ETA (3-4 months). I must have had TBHP written all over me once the camera got out, and he vanished

Hey guys, if you notice carefully, the door handles have changed from current chrome to Body colour

So Smart Entry in the pipeline ??

My 1 question,

Why are toyota guys testing this car so extensively ? Is there a new engine

Good work Recompose.

The changes i see are
- Front Bumper - Completely different (the air intake is inverted) with a different shape for fog lamps
- Side Indicator is new (Possibly it is the new D-4D labeling)
- New Rear Combination Lamps
- The rear Chrome lip is wider (longer - more closer to the rear combination lamps)
- Rear reflectors are different (earlier circular)

The gear stick "looks" like the one from the Oil Burner (Look closely into the last photo, you would see 6 gears with (R) on the extreme left ))

Does this means Corolla D is getting a new Diesel Engine, other why should they test a facelift extensively?

Recompose: Do you have any other picture of the interior taken from the left of the car?

Inspite of the engine upgrade and sportier external looks, the interiors does not seem to be changed.

I caught this near Bidadi a couple of hours earlier, while driving towards Bangalore. The car joined the Mysore road only for a while and then turned right.

Isn't the front grill quite close to the one in Etios - the slight slant downwards. The chrome lining at the rear extends so much longer - to ends of both rear lamps.

As I see it, the plastic area surrounding the fog lamps and below the grill is almost the same as the earlier one. I wish for a car that price, they could do something better with that; eg. like no plastic around the fog lamps in ANHC.

Also, the door seem to be bland at the bottom, right - no linings.

Any news on whether there's a new engine - for Petrol or Diesel?

The Corolla looks sharper now. Could do with smarter alloys. A bigger diesel in the offing?

Finally the interior wood inserts look like a darker shade and matte finish. This will work nicely.

New petrol engine? Must be the 1.6l that will take the fight to ANHC.
But the one that direly needs a new engine is the diesel.
C'mon Toyota, bring on the 2.0D.
