UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has just launched the all-new 12th-generation Toyota Corolla Altis. There are two trims available – the 1.8E and 1.8G priced at RM 128,888 and RM 136,888 respectively.

The all-new Corolla Altis rides on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform that adopts a double wishbone set up for the rear suspension. Our colleague, Hans, had a first taste of the Corolla Altis and was very impressed by the car’s ride and handling.

Perhaps the only criticism of the Corolla Altis is its 2ZR-FE 1.8-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder Dual VVT-i petrol engine and CVT automatic that pushes out 139 PS and 172 Nm.

A little down in output compared to the competition but the Corolla Altis makes up for it in the equipment side of things. The range-topping 1.8G comes with the Toyota Safety Sense Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) as well as first in class Qi-wireless charging tray and rear sun blinds.

The all-new Toyota Corolla Altis is fully imported from Thailand and every purchase comes with a 5-Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty
