More Altis Details Leaking Out - E20 Confirmed

"All New Toyota Altis" time again! The E20 compatibility is confirmed, as are the engine sizes. As we previously understood, we will see the same displacements of 1.6 and 1.8 litre in the new Altis, although the power ratings have not been confirmed, but it is most likely that they will not be the Dual VVT-i units that they're getting elsewhere.

However, the good news is that both engines will be E20 compatible and even if this won't amount to the Altis being substantially cheaper than the outgoing model, it should allow Toyota to be very competitive in the market, since all competition apart from Chevrolet have also confirmed E20 capable versions so the pricing is down across the segment in Thailand........

10th Generation Toyota Altis Supports E20

The 2008 Toyota Corolla Altis is going to land in showrooms any day now. Although details are still not officially released, there are some banners on display outside some Toyota dealers. One of these showed the "E20" logo next to the Altis, so I assume that means that the new Altis will be E20 compatible, and this should translate into a reduction in price compared to the outgoing model.

Apart from that, it will obviously lead to cheaper running costs give then lower price of E20 fuel.

More details on the new Altis soon!

2008 Toyota Corolla Altis Update - New Car, Same Old Engines?

In the Toyota Altis detailed preview article I made a few guesses that turned out to be right. But that article was written in March, and if it had all been accurate, I would start a new career in gambling. One thing that wasn't accurate was the launch date. I expected the Altis to launch in October, or at least in time for the Thailand International Motor Expo in November.

Okay, it's not exactly a good looking car, but the Altis has it's own charm. When it grows up it'll be a IS 250.

2008 Toyota Altis will Launch at Expo

2008 Altis

Toyota will officially unveil the all-new 2008 Altis in Thailand at the 2007 Thailand Motor Expo at the end of the month. Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to view the car and place orders, but first deliveries will start in January 2008.

Typically the Thailand Motor Expo is not worth the effort, but this year might be different, with Toyota, Honda, Chevrolet, and Proton all choosing to unveil and launch new models at the event. In previous years the show has been little more than an oversized showroom, with only currently available models being shown. New car launches were more typical at the Bangkok International Motor Show, but perhaps this is the start of a trend. It seems that November/December is a better time to launch new models for the new-year sales window.

Why Toyota should bring Aygo to Thailand - Aygo Interior

With fewer component parts, there is less to go wrong. Aygo manages to be basic, and practical without sacrificing too much on refinement and features. Airbag complement of 4 is more than most cars in Thailand provide.

Back windows of the Toyota Aygo are levered out, rather than wound, even in 5 door form.

Why Toyota should bring Aygo to Thailand

Small Aygo

Ask the "expert" analysts about the Thai auto market and they will tell you things like: The Thai public hate hatchbacks, they want big cars with big boots, and they want pickup trucks. I think the "experts" are wrong. I think that the Thai motoring public would lap up a Eco-Car, and the sooner Toyota bring the Aygo to Thailand the better.

Of course there are other small cars that could come to Thailand, but the Aygo has the most going for it. First.... it's a Toyota, the company that dominates virtually every segment of the market in Thailand.
