Toyota Corolla Altis 2005 review
The Toyota Corolla Altis was first introduced in 1966 as a compact car, but has since grown in size and features to become a mid-size sedan. The 2005 model, specifically, was part of the tenth generation of the Corolla Altis, which was sold from 2001 to 2007.
At the time of its release, the 2005 Corolla Altis was praised for its fuel efficiency, handling, and reliability. It was powered by a 1.8-liter inline-four engine that produced 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The engine was paired with a five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic.
One unique feature of the 2005 Corolla Altis was its optional “intelligent” manual transmission (iMT). This system allowed the driver to shift gears manually without using a clutch pedal, which was aimed at making the manual transmission more accessible to a wider range of drivers.
In terms of safety, the 2005 Corolla Altis received high marks from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It was given a “Good” rating in the organization’s front and side crash tests, as well as a “Marginal” rating in the rear crash test. The Corolla Altis also came standard with front and rear head airbags, as well as front seat-mounted side airbags.
Overall, the Toyota Corolla Altis 2005 was a solid choice for those in the market for a reliable, fuel-efficient sedan. It offered a comfortable ride, good handling, and a range of safety features.
