If it is the 1.6 and atleast a lakh cheaper, I have found the replacement for my Ford Ikon. Toyota please please get that 1.6 corolla in the market.

I really hope they get more engine options in the diesel segment.
If they do this car can be game changer.

Sorry, its all I have.

The Corolla looks sharper and better. Honda might be making a mistake by putting out the new Civic, which looks retrogressive. I wonder how many people actually want the new Civic in India

Its the 2011 corolla. More pics here Toyota Corolla - 2011 Photo Gallery
The tail and new headlights are the same updates as seen in the US model.
With interiors there may be minor differences updates/tuning for the Indian market, but largely same.

Not sure if the Honda badge will make it work.
But right now, the new Civic is not one expects in the 10lac segment with it's extreme cab forward style that's more pronounced than the earlier gen(that was sleeker).
BTW, thought that Toyota did the diesel in Corolla for only India.
But shocked me to know that Toyota South Africa has a 2000cc d-4d with 120BHP and 200nm torque engine.
Why not bring that here.???

Well, 1.6 Corolla is already popular choice in SE Asia, but I doubt Toyota will price it to a segment down (to fight with Honda City). But yes, 1.6 can surely lure a few potential City customers to move up a segment.

I am quite sure that the upcoming Civic will do very well, and as Dicky mentioned, the Honda badge is hard to ignore.

It is a bit retrogressive, but its still more aggressive looking than the safe design of Corolla. I will look at the New Civic in a different angle. It is moving from being a teenage boy to a grown up man

Exactly. This is the model that going to be launched. Please dont pin your hopes on 1.6L engine. Its 1.8L but a better engine.

I 'actually' booked the current Altis on Saturday (19th March 2011).
Then stumbled upon this thread on 21st March!
Luckily the cheque had not cleared so was able to make stop payment!

But now i was just wondering after howmany months does a company like Toyota announce the car after its test runs are carried on?? Accordingly i will have to decide on my purchase! (CiVic is another option)

Any quick help would be appreciated!

If you are ready to wait for 2 months , you can wait for the facelifted corolla. Else go for the current one.

The car looks good and looks better than the current Altis. The reason I asked for the interior pics from the left side is that the test cars looked like they had a gear stick with 6 forward gears, which suggests it could be a diesel.

More sightings of the facelifted Corolla in Bangy (courtesy BSM)

CAUGHT TESTING! Facelifted Toyota Corolla Altis

This is just a mid life facelift/ tweaks to keep the product fresh & avoid prospective buyers going for newer launches from competitors.

As already mentioned earlier, I think the key point to look out for are if there would be any new diesel options? I doubt it may not be enough. All action would be on the petrol front.

What is surprising is that its all quite on the Toyota front. No press release or any advertisements as they had done for Etios. May thats because its just a face lift.

Checked with Nandi Toyota, the sales rep informed me that the new facelifted corolla will hit showrooms in the first week of June. They were very clear that the changes are just 'minor, cosmetic'.
