Toyota Motor Thailand is also offering the all-new Corolla Altis with the choice of a 1.6- or a 1.8-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine. The smaller 1.6-litre engine is good for 125 PS and 156 Nm, while the larger 1.8-litre unit does 140 PS and 177 Nm. Both petrol engines receive a CVT-type automatic transmission with 7 virtual ratios.
