Toyota has quietly facelifted the Toyota Corolla (sold here as the Corolla Altis) around the end of last month. This comes shortly after the hatchback version of car known as the Auris was launched. Obvious changes include a new grille up front and a new design for the tail lamps at the rear.

The 2.0 litre engine that is already available in Thailand in the pre-facelift model will also be making its way into models all around the world. At least one country – Australia is confirmed to get the 2.0 litre other than Thailand. What Thailand got is the Dual VVT-i 3ZR-FE but some countries could get the Valvematic 3ZR-FAE 2.0 litre that can produce 156 horses.

The photos of the European spec here is more upmarket compared to the ones we get here in ASEAN – their instrument cluster has a higher end multi-info display integrated into the center of each meter face for example. There is also start/stop functions.

Look after the jump for a full gallery of the new facelifted Corolla.
