The Toyota Corolla Altis.Imagine pushing the car's 1.8 liter engine to the limit along the along the highway with ease.

On the outside, the car embodies the same smart and classy features found on the higher-end Camry. Upon closer inspection, one can see minute details that complement the total package -- side skirts, extended bumpers, and a sporty front grille.

One can definitely figure out that this car was meant for comfort and convenience -- both for the driver and the passengers. Full leather seats are quite uncommon in mid-size cars but the Altis, true to Toyota's spiel about it being on a league all its own, doesn't cut down on the refinements both inside and out.

The Altis is really just a Corolla with a bigger engine. Thus you can find a version that looks just like it but with either a 1.6 or 1.3 liter engine. Under the hood is where lies the Altis's main feature: highest torque performance in its class at 154 Nm/4,800 rpm as delivered by the 116 horsepower engine.

The car's intelligent electronically controlled automatic transmission gives the driver a better control in speed which makes it stands out more then the other Corollas.

Handling and maneuverability were quite good giving the car its notoriety. The steering is responsive, not giving it the heavy feeling like other cars. Selecting the Overdrive function, will give a sudden surge in power, for those over-takings on the highway.

Other amenities were given the once over. In the end, the Altis was adjudged quite classy for a mid-range car.

Overall, the Altis exudes an image worthy of someone who knows good value and high-end performance.The Altis is positioned to individuals who want something different, a vehicle that is a notch higher than the common 1600 sedans and yet not as overtly extravagant as the million-peso European cars. In other words, a hardworking car for a hardworking professional. .    Comments  [E-mail this to friend(EMF)]
