Pictures: Toyota Corolla test mule spotted in Pakistan

4

The auto industry of Pakistan is going through a massive change. Apart from the interest shown by global brands, several local companies have declared their plans to enter the automobile manufacturing market. The growing demand for automotives, coupled with new Automotive Development Policy 2016-21 and the inevitable entry of new market players, has kickstarted the local auto industry.

Pakistan’s auto-industry, in six months, has seen the launch of six cars, namely, Revo, Fortuner, Vitara, Ciaz, BR-V and Cultus. Not only do they spell good initiatives for the companies but they also replace outdated models. Toyota IMC, after the successful launch of Toyota Fortuner and Toyota Revo, is lining up to introduce the facelift of Toyota Corolla in Pakistan.

In an earlier post, PakWheels highlighted the possibility of an upcoming facelift in Pakistan. In this development, new pictures of Toyota IMC’s test unit have surfaced on PakWheels Forums. At first glance, the car (Altis Grande) seems to have a standard camera upfront, with a massive exterior change, two airbags, new alloy wheels, rear impression lamps, force limiter + pretension (driver + front passenger), climate control and a new infotainment module.

  1. Merely cosmetics won't be able to grasp people sight.......not impressive......

  2. Doesn't seem this vehicle was spotted somewhere. The way pics are taken makes me think it was deliberately offered for promotions

  3. that's enough for those people who are still buying new city.

  4. I have worked at Indus Motors previously; these pictures are taken at After Paint Inspection spot i guess.
    Seems like face lift is soon on the way...

  5. AOA,

    First of all I am really surprised as why these cars are camouflaged, this is usually done at R&D stage by manufacturer.

    This is a minor face lift with pictures/ videos/ reviews of facelifted Corolla all over the net. So whats Indus trying to prove. Create excitement wow.......

    Secondly, car assemblers are doing us no favor by launching new models. What I have learnt is that the new automobile policy has some incentives for existing assemblers on launching new models including facility to import certain numbers of CBU.

    Next, new entrants are not likely to come to Pakistan soon, its a small market which is not financially viable for huge investment.
