The Altis is a car designed for the people looking for an alternative in between Corolla and Camry.
With the first view of Altis, one can have an impression of the best combination of Corolla and Camry. When looking from outside, it looks like a Camry at first impression. The interiors are also top notch but still Civic is better. The seating space and comfort level have been improved considerably. The Altis has the same 1.8L VVT-i engine as that of an existing Corolla model, tweaked ECU and fuel injection system, improved emission conformity and better fuel efficiency.
Unfortunately, with the same engine of the Corolla, it lets down the excitement generated by the external appearance. The safety features have been improved with ABS anti-skid brakes with Brake Assist and Electronic Brake force Distribution for optimum stopping power in an emergency . Altis has five-star Euro NCAP ratings and will arrive with the safety features such as EBD, ABS, Traction Control, Brake Assist and multiple airbags. Corolla Altis is priced at Rs. 1350000.00 (Ex-showroom Mumbai) in India.
The Driving of the Altis is a pleasure with the 10th generation EPS. It can make sharp turns with at most ease. The driver won't fatigue over long drives.
The Corolla Altis is for all practical purposes and a no-risk choice for a compact luxury sedan. It is consistently reliable . Good fuel economy 9.5 to 12KMPL, no gimmicky styling and a good list of options offer buyers a lot to choose from.
In short, Altis has everything that makes it a step ahead of a World class Corolla, but not more than that.
