2010 Toyota Corolla Altis Facelift launched on 23 September 2010 at UMW Toyota Subang 3S Centre

2010 Toyota Corolla Altis Facelift

Probably you have viewed our spy shots of the new Corolla Altis 2.0V in our previous post here. Now are no longer spy shots as the facelifted Toyota Corolla Altis is officially launched on 23 September 2010 at UMW Toyota Subang 3S Centre.

2010 Toyota Corolla Altis Facelift

The new Corolla Altis is equipped with newly designed exterior for a more dynamic and sporty look with new headlamps, front grille and rear tail lamps that present a sporty style sedan.  The interior is further enhanced presenting a luxurious image with a combination of leather and wood on the steering and gear knob as well as the perforated leather seats that offers comfort.


The new Corolla Altis is a completely built-up (CBU) unit, manufactured in Thailand and is available in four variants such as the Altis 1.6E, Altis 1.8E, Altis 1.8G and the new variant – Altis 2.0V. The 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre variants now fitted with Super CVT-i gearbox while the 1.6-litre remain using the same 4-speed auto gearbox. The Super CVT-i with 7 speed sports sequential shift provides improved fuel efficiency, as well as smooth and responsive gear shifts like the one fitted on Toyota Estima 2.4 ACR50 and Toyota Vellfire 2.4.

The previous ZZ series of VVT-i engines have been replaced by the ZR series with Dual VVT-i across all variants of the Corolla Altis. Therefore, now the 1.6-litre and 1.8-litre engine have gained more horsepower with the new Dual VVT-i engine.

- 1.6-litre has 120PS and 154Nm of torque @ 5,200rpm
- 1.8-litre has 140PS and 173Nm of torque @ 4,000rpm
- New 2.0-litre gets 147PS and 187Nm of torque @ 3,600rpm

With the advantage of torque at low rpm, the 2.0V gives good performance on the road compare to other car at the same segment. 

2010 Toyota Corolla Altis Facelift Airbag

The new Corolla Altis equipped the standard dual front airbags, ABS with electronic brake force distribution, vehicle stability control, parking sensor and traction control. Unfortunately, there is no curtain airbags for all variants of the new Corolla Altis.

Apart from the 1.6E and 1.8E/G variants, the 2.0V gets a single bar grille in dark grey and HID headlamps with smoked lenses. Interior-wise, it comes with dark-coloured wood trim with matte finishing on 1.8G and 2.0V.

The new car is priced between RM106,000 to RM132,000 (OTR in Peninsular Malaysia including insurance). The new Corolla Altis can be view at all Toyota showrooms throughout Peninsular Malaysia since 24th September 2010 while in Sabah and Sarawak on the 1st October 2010.

Malaysia Toyota Corolla Altis Facelift 2010

Malaysia’s Toyota Corolla Altis is going to have a facelift in September this year, this is according to our internal Toyota spy. On top of that, our spy is kind enough to provide us some spyshot which is actually taken in Toyota’s Thailand factory. Before you leave your eye from this sentence – we were told the upcoming facelifted Toyota Corolla Altis will likely come with a 2.0L version too!


This version in the photo of the facelifted Toyota Corolla Altis is classified as a 2.0 V spec. As we can see the headlights are with black background to create the smoked head lamp effect (like the TRD Sportivo Altis we reported earlier) and the center grille are with 1 black spoke bar across. The bumpers design are similar to the one’s on the facelifted Toyota Camry.


The Toyota Corolla Altis Facelift 2010 2.0L V spec from Thailand will feature a full bodykit with a 5 spoke sport rim.


From the rear of the facelifted Toyota Corolla V spec, it looks like the V Spec has a different rear bumper compare to the standard spec. The rear lights are partial transparent which remind me of the Camry Hybrid rear lights. A rear spoiler with 3rd brake light is included as well.

We are not too sure whether UMW Toyota will get this version in but looking at trend today, it would be a good idea to bring in a much better looking, sporty Corolla Altis. Check out a few more pictures below for the standard G-spec Toyota Corolla Altis Facelift 2010.

Toyota Corolla Altis TRD Sportivo

You probably be wondering, is there a Altis TRD Sportivo ?  We are here to to tell you, Yes there is. Aside from the Toyota Vios TRD Sportivo, there’s actually Toyota Corolla Altis TRD Sportivo. The turn-off point is, it is only available in Thailand.

Toyota Altis TRD

On the front of Toyota Corolla Altis TRD Sportivo, upgrades can be seen on a few areas. The headlights which has black background now, the huge front bodykit warped on the existing bumper & of course the matte black grille with  a TRD Sportivo Badge. Toyota Thailand did a limited batch of 2000 unit of Toyota Corolla Altis TRD Sportivo with a option of 1.6 litre engine or 1.8 litre vvt-i engine. There’s only 2 colours to choose from which is Black or White.

Toyota Altis TRD Spoiler

From the rear of this Toyota Corolla Altis TRD Sportivo, it make me feel excited with the huge spoiler similar in size as the Civic Mugen  or Evo X type and the button with rear diffuser along with the rear bodykit.  The rear headlights are also different than a standard Corolla Altis. The yellow reflector signal light has been replace with a clear-type rear light case.

Altis TRD white

As we view the Corolla Altis TRD Sportivo from the side, we are not so sure whether to call it a nice car with those bodykit fitted to it. In our opinion,it does not look that sleek. However you do get the TRD Sportivo sticker at the lower part of the side rear door – The sticker positioning reminds of me the latest Civic Type R. The rims also replace with a 205/55R16 profile TRD Sportivo 16 inch rims.
