Toyota Corolla Altis GL and JS Variant Discontinued, Get’s a new J+ variant that is cheaper by 1.5 lakhs to the top-end variant

Toyota Corolla Altis has been never in the news of in a garage near you. It has been at a hotel porch receiving you or dropping you at the airport. Yes, we are talking about the diesel and not the fantastic petrol and the slick automatic gearbox it has. So to make sure fleet managers get the best while they buy the car in bulk. Toyota has finally introduced and exited some variants from the variant sheet. Diesel is the bulk of the Altis sold in the country.

Petrol is a proper customer car despite being a good one it doesn’t do that well for stiff competition in that segment from the Germans and the Koreans. Diesel is a preferred fuel in this segment but the Altis has a puny 1.4 diesel engine which makes 88 PS. While the competition churns out 126 BHP to 140 BHP.
