Toyota is a brand that is normally associated with reliability in India. Toyota has offered several products in our market and some products are popular even after getting discontinued from the market. Corolla Altis was one such premium sedan that Toyota used to offer in the market. There are several well maintained examples of Toyota Corolla Altis is the market even today and some have already been modified too. We have already seen several examples of modified Toyota Altis from different parts of the country and here we have one which gets a custom made Lexus type front grille at the front.
The video has been uploaded by Autorounders on their YouTube channel. Autorounders is a Mumbai based workshop that deals in car restoration and modification. They have done several modification works in the past. Toyota Corolla Altis is one of their recent project. This not the first time, this Corolla Altis has come to Autorounders.
According to the vlogger, complete restoration work on this Corolla was done few years ago and the customer came back for more modifications. The main attraction in this Corolla Altis is the grille itself. It is a Lexus type grille which is not available anywhere else. The main reason why it is not available anywhere else is because it was completely made in-house by Autorounders. The experienced personnel at Autorounders along with inputs from the customer itself helped in finalising the design.
The front grille is huge and that completely changes the overall look of the car. The car looks a lot more sporty and premium from outside. The stock headlamps have been replaced aftermarket twin projector LED units with LED DRLs. The bumper has been completely redesigned to give it a premium look.
The grille is finished in satin black and grey finish. Coming to the side profile, there is a custom made side skirt that is finished in satin black finish. The car gets aftermarket alloy wheel from Momo Italy brand and the calipers are painted in red for a sporty look. Coming to the rear, the boot gets a custom made lip spoiler and the tail lamps are now aftermarket LED units. The bumper gets an aftermarket body kit that comes with twin dummy exhaust tips. They have also added shark fin antenna to the roof of the car.
The interiors of this Corolla Altis were already modified. The interior gets an all-black treatment with faux wooden inserts at places. Other than this, seat also get new upholstery, speaker system and an aftermarket Tesla type large touchscreen infotainment system. Overall, the work done on this Toyota Corolla Altis looks very neat. The vehicle was modified as per customer’s request and there is a possibility that some of you may not like the front grille. An aftermarket exhaust is also installed on the car which has a sporty note to it. The front grille along with the Candy Red paint job and a loud exhaust makes this Corolla Altis stand out in the crowd.
