The launch of the All New Toyota Corolla Altis 2019 marks another milestone in TMP history. As the model is the first in its lineup to feature three of Toyota’s latest technologies in one variant.
“The All-New Toyota Corolla is the first-ever model to be launched in the Philippines. That completely embodies our philosophy of EVER BETTER CARS,” says TMP President Satoru Suzuki. “With Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) which is the new standard of design and engineering, it provides EVER BETTER PERFORMANCE. With Toyota Safety Sense (TSS), it offers customers EVER BETTER LIVES. And with Hybrid Technology, it helps create an EVER BETTER WORLD.”
The All-New Corolla Altis lineup is headlined by a hybrid-electric variant. Marking the first time that the Toyota Hybrid technology is made available in a mainstream, high-volume model. This further boosts Toyota’s push to provide technologically-advanced and sustainable mobility options to more Filipinos.
This new generation of the Corolla Altis is redesigned with improved performance and accentuated appeal while retaining its timeless legacy. The classic model well-loved by Filipinos further elevates its image by enhancing performance, comfort, and convenience. While providing peace of mind with its advanced safety features.
In line with the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050. The environment-friendly technology is made more accessible with the introduction of the All-New Corolla Altis 1.8V HV variant. Competitively priced at Php1.58M, and backed by its loyal brand following and established a legacy. The All-New Corolla Altis is a perfect entry-point for Filipino customers wanting to shift to HEV technology.
The 1.8V HV variant is powered by a VVT-I, 4-Cylinder In-Line DOHC, 16 Valve engine with 1,798cc displacement and electric motor, 121hp total system maximum output, and 142Nm maximum torque @ 3,600 rpm. Drivers can experience a smooth and quiet ride with better fuel efficiency while the battery self-charges during the drive. Three driving modes are available (Sport, Eco, Normal), giving the driver more control.
Having been developed under the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, the All-New Corolla Altis has significantly improved its Agility, Stability, and Visibility. The driver feels more in control as the lower center of gravity and improved suspension provide less roll and sharper vehicle response. Visibility is better due to the reduced cowl height, thinner instrument panel, and re-positioned mirrors. Both the driver and passengers feel at ease all throughout the ride with improved sound insulation that provides a quiet cabin and comfortable ride.
The All-New Corolla Altis provides a reassuring sense of security with safety features incorporated in the overall development of the vehicle.
All variants are equipped with 7 SRS airbags, Anti-Lock Brake System with Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Vehicle Stability Control, Hill Start Assist, and 3-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) seatbelts for the driver and all passengers.
The 1.8V HV is the second variant in the TMP’s official lineup to feature Toyota Safety Sense (TSS). While some available features were already introduced in the Hiace Super Grandia Elite, such as the Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), and Automatic High Beam (AHB), several new features are introduced in the All-New Corolla Altis 1.8V HV, such as the Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) and the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC).
The prestigious look starts with the signature Toyota trapezoidal lower grille that shows off the strong and wide stance of the All-New Corolla Altis. Centered at one sharp character line formed by the upper grille and headlamps. The 1.8 V HV and 1.6V CVT variants give off an even more striking impression with the defined bi-beam LED headlamps and LED line guide DRL. The vehicle’s side view silhouette has a dynamic and active look, further emphasizing the low center-of-gravity with the voluminous front and rear bumpers. Sleek defined lines are consistent up to the rear. With full LED rear combination lamps that complement the striking look of the headlamps. And 17” alloy wheels (for 1.8 V HV and 1.6V CVT) add sportiness to the overall look of the vehicle.
Consistent with the sleek exterior, the interior adopts a minimalistic design that gives off a sophisticated and classy atmosphere. The simple and spacious cabin doesn’t compromise functionality and guarantees driver and passenger comfort. Making the All-New Corolla Altis drive experience truly exquisite.
All-New Corolla Altis are powered by a Dual VVT-I, 4-Cylinder In-Line DOHC, 16 Valve engine which ensures smooth acceleration, minimal noise, and better fuel efficiency. Displacement is at 1,598cc, with 121hp maximum output, and 153Nm maximum torque @5,200 rpm.
All variants have MacPherson Strut/Double Wishbone Type suspension, providing excellent handling and a more stable and comfortable ride.
