2020 Toyota Altis Review Rumors
Toyota Altis Review Rumors – Toyota Auris (Toyota Corolla hatchback) is officially launched at 2019 Geneva Motor Show this week. Based on that, automotive illustrator Jonathan Machado has created a speculative rendering of the next Toyota Corolla Altis.
While Toyota Corolla Altis currently has a different design from the Toyota Corolla hatchback that comes out, the rendering shows Toyota Corolla Altis next generation featuring the same design as donor hatchback.
The redesigned model will ride on the TNGA platform, which supports all of Toyota’s latest mass-market models, ranging from Toyota Auris compact hatchback to Toyota Avalon’s executive sedan. The new platform will improve driving dynamics and improve safety.

Like the latest Toyota Auris, the next-generation 2020 Toyota Altis may lack the availability of diesel engines. Instead, Toyota can offer a 1.8-liter hybrid powertrain and/or 180 hp 2.0 liter. Of course, before deciding to make the hybrid option (s) available globally, the company should check the possibility of this move to derogate Toyota Prius sales. The latest Toyota Prius, which debuts the TNGA platform in 2015, is powered by a 1.8 liter 1.8-liter hybrid powertrain.
Toyota will offer the Toyota Auris 2019 with just one conventional engine – a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol unit. This strategy may not suit the next-generation Toyota Corolla Altis, as its target market tends to include many price-sensitive countries like India, where turbocharged gasoline engines will make car prices too steep.

The new car’s exterior design is more aggressive than the outgoing model and with LED lighting throughout, and follows the American market design language of the Camry and C-HR small SUVs. Its all-black interior has also been redesigned but the simple design theme of the previous car brings more. The main additions are the all-digital instrument cluster and the new 8-inch floating touch screen on the center console.
Infotainment now has Android Auto / Apple Car Play as well as Amazon Alexa integration. American cars will be available with Toyota’s latest active safety technology suite equipped with high-beam auto, pedestrian detection system, route departure warning, and lane-keep help. The suspension has also been given a more sporty tone than the previous car.
All things considered, we may see ass instead of a more evolved prototype considering the vehicle has a combination of transient components used in the first half of the testing session and some bits and bobs sourced from the 2020 Toyota Altis available in showrooms today.
When it will arrive, the new Corolla will be completely different in terms of hardware. That’s because the compact car will switch to Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) which has underpinned models such as the latest Prius and the funky C-HR crossover we love to review earlier in the week. Since it will have much in common with the Prius, one can assume that the next Corolla will feature a hybrid powertrain for thirty versions.
