Indus Motors Brings Toyota Corolla Updates – Immobilizer Offered In All Cars Except XLi

toyota corolla

We reported in March that Toyota Indus Motors is planning to launch an updated version of its already quite successful Toyota Corolla sedan. It was reported that new updated models will be available at the start of May 2016. And as promised, Indus Motors has launched the updates for the new Corolla. The updates apply to all three engine categories (1.3-, 1.6-, and 1.8-liter) to some degree.

One of the major qualms people had with Toyota Pakistan was its reluctance to offer immobilizer in their Corollas cars. Corollas are prone to theft, and the customers were rightfully frustrated about the lack of sufficient security measures. Well, the wait is finally over. You can have the immobilizer with a keyless entry in all Corolla cars (except XLi). The wireless key also has automatic boot release button.

Starting with the Toyota Corolla GLi variant, you can now have wireless key and immobilizer in both manual and automatic versions. Other than that, you now get body colored mud flaps as well. These are the only updates the 1300 cc segment has received.

  • Immobilizer
  • Wireless key
  • Body-colored mud flaps

The 1600 cc Corolla Altis has a little bit more to offer than the basic GLi variant. As expected, you get the wireless key and immobilizer. Other than that, Toyota is offering new in-dash entertainment system. Along with the body colored mud flaps, you have new 15” alloy wheels as well.

  • Immobilizer
  • Wireless key
  • In-dash entertainment system
  • Alloy wheels
  • Body-colored mud flaps

And as one would expect, the 1.8-liter Toyota Corolla Altis Grande got the most amount of updates. Starting with wireless key (jack knife style key) and immobilizer, you get the newly refreshed interior and a new dashboard. Your leather-stitched steering wheel now comes with audio and multi-info display. You now get climate control as well. Other than those, here is the list of other updates:

  • Immobilizer
  • Wireless key (jack knife)
  • New interior and dashboard (more storage spaces)
  • Eco Meter
  • Color MID
  • Auto A/C
  • Auto folding side mirrors
  • Alloy wheels
  • Luggage tray
  • Body-colored mud flaps

There are a few other small updates as well. Some are standard while some are add-ons.

    no dual airbags…..dissapointing

  • Moaz Malik

    This update brings the Altis Grande largely on par with the 2016 US top-of-the line Corolla S, which doesn’t sound quite so impressive when you consider the fact that that version has also been refreshed for the 2017 model year to celebrate the Corolla’s 50th anniversary and now includes a whole bunch of cosmetic and feature updates including the optional Toyota Safety Sense-P system, which adds a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure warning with steering assist and automatic high beams. Oh well, the Altis Grande is still a great package. No longer the rip-off it used to be. Can anyone here attest to the car’s build-quality? No squeaks and rattles in the cabin, I hope?

    too late jackasses !

    Finally the added features will really help Corolla to justify its price. But no dual airbags is a bit sad. #YourmoveHonda

  • Kashif Akbar

    There are two reasons that cause Toyota PK to align itself to public expectations,
    1. Threat expected by coming New Civic wrt its features.
    2. New Auto Policy & new entrants.

  • Hadis1

    1600 corolla already had in dash entertainment and alloys wheels. What is new? Similarly all features that you mentioned for 1800 some have been there since 2014 launch

  • A novice question
