Toyota has launched a sporty variant of the facelifted Toyota Corolla Altis called as the Altis X in Taiwan.
The Toyota Corolla Altis X is much sportier and aggressive than the pre-facelift model as it features a more dynamic and angular front bumper with a stylish spoiler, reshaped air dam grille, re-positioned front fog lamps, 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, side skirts, rear under-body spoiler and a shark fin antenna.
The interior is black, complemented by red highlights on the steering wheel, center console, air vents and door panels, as well as red stitching on the steering wheel cover, dashboard and center console cover, seat covers and gearshift cover.
The 2017 Toyota Corolla Altis X is 4,640 mm long, 1,775 mm wide and 1,460 mm tall. It is 20 mm longer than the regular 2017 Toyota Corolla Altis. Under the hood, as in the rest of the range, is the same 2ZR-FE 1.8-litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine producing 140 PS at 6,400 rpm and 172.60 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. CVT sends the drive to the wheels while paddle shifters are there for manual shifts.
Additionally the Corolla Altis X is equipped with a sports suspension and high-performance shock absorbers. The fuel economy is rated at 15.6 km per liter.
