What not to expect from Altis?

The Toyota Corolla Altis diesel is not for those who like their cars to be torque-happy or have an amazing pick-up.

The car would not zoom away or help you overtake at the blink of an eye.

The car's overall styling is basic, suspension is not well done and the backseat is a little unpleasant and the car might feel a little overpriced in terms of the engine specs at offer.

For the price sensitive in you

The Toyota Corolla diesel would be available in trims such as - J priced at 10.95, G priced at 12.95 lakh and GL (leather) priced at 13.75 lakh. (all prices are ex showroom Delhi)
