Toyota Corolla Altis 1.6 Elegance Review
Even Better for the Family Man

In all, why (over) fix something which is not broken right? 

For those who believe that a safe choice is always a good thing, there have been many generations who have been keen buyers of a Corolla.

The facelifted car faithfully carries on with it all the values of what had made previous generations an international best seller. Even now, with market interests leaning towards the SUV/Crossover, the sheer numbers of this compact sedan on the road signify how close to the heart the values of “reliability”, and that “you cannot go wrong with this car” are to buyers.

At first glance, you might not be able to tell apart which car is the facelifted one, if they’re parked side by side. Slight changes in the head and tail light cluster design. Larger headlamp internals have been ditched for a more striking LED assembly at the base of the unit, and complemented by a redesigned front grille. A new bumper is also in-place to add to the refreshed design.

The Elegance variant 17” rims look ideal on their part, no need for an aftermarket “zhng” here. The Standard version gets 16” units, which are also seriously fine looking.

In the rear, the “Batman-shaped” rear lenses lose their red accents on the top, and the chromed bar across the boot lid passes through the assemblies, providing a subtle sense of visual girth.

In all, why (over) fix something which is not broken right?
