For sometime now there has been a buzz about a face lifted Toyota Corolla Altis and in fact, various websites have even shown pictures of a face lift.  Needless to say even the eagle eyed will be hard pressed to see the changes and only a true Toyota fan will be in a position to make out those changes.  Now another news has emerged and that is regarding the transmission of the car.  Toyota will be introducing a 7 speed continuously variable transmission on the car.  However, there will be no change in engine capacity as had been speculated by some.  There was a rumour that Toyota would offer a 1600cc engine on the Altis to compete with cars like the Honda City.  But Toyota has put paid to those ideas by saying that the car will continue with the existing 1800cc  petrol and 1400 cc  diesel engines.
