After being introduced in the market way back in 2014, the eleventh-generation Corolla has received its mid-cycle facelift. Sleeker and safer than before, the 2017 Corolla Altis gets 7-airbags as standard and now comes with stability control as standard on high tier models. It now bears the brand's 'Keen Look' design and a more sophisticated-looking interior as well. Engines are carried-over from the pre-facelift model and comes in two displacements, 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter. Both have Dual VVT-i and can be married to either a 6-speed mannual or CVT.

If the price isn't a hurdle, by all means, go for the Corolla Altis 2.0V. It's a safe choice in the segment that one won't regret, especially when it comes to long-term ownership. After all, with over 45 million served in its 50 year history, you really can't go wrong with Toyota's breadwinner.
