    Default New Pics of Locally Assembled New Corolla 08

    MOD EDIT: MOVED TO CORRECT SECTION



    Well people I went to Toyota Indus Motors for some official work there. Surprisingly i spotted new corolla at various points of the factory. It was there at the assembly bay, checked out an altis auto at the quality inspection area and interestingly a new Xli at the Cng tuning station.

    Taking pics was not allowed but after asking a senior official there, was allowed to take some but not openly. Could'nt take the interior pics... though checked out an altis from inside..it has again an indash music system other wise same as can be seen on the net and yes no steering controls!!!

    According to the people there the current altis has not performed well at all and it was planned to introduce this new shape only in Altis to counter the New 1.8 Civic but Indus'es star product is a XLI. So now the decision has been reverted and it will come in all varients..

    It will be launched in Aug or Sep this year...

    Here are some of the pics though not very good in quality and angles because of the so called secrecy thing (although the pics are all over the internet already). But I thought I should share them with my Pakwheels friends.

    Regards

    Thanks@all
    I just logged in after such a long time friends thank you once again for your kind comments.

    All the information is from a senior executive of IMC who allowed me to enter this faciltiy where not even there own employees who are not related to production and marketing departements are allowed. I, by virtue of my company where I work was allowed inside to take pics.

    The blue one tagged as a xli cng had a paper on it with XLi CNG (visible at the place of its front number plate). I didnt check that one from inside or even outside. Just took the pic as it was in the open CNG Tuning area. So cant comment about its engine capacity or quality etc. I also noticed the side indicators on the side mirrors but still XLi was marked on that car. I myself cant say any thing. Time will tell us the real thing Just wait and keep your fingers crossed people.

    Yes checked Altis thoroughly, the plastic quality was good, the steering was just like camry's steering but with no button steering controls. The deck was again an external unit installed in the dash like the current one but not as impressive as this one (It was more like the one that came in 2002 Se-saloon but in black color with a much bigger display and blue linigs, not so impressive-Its my personal observation). The wood panelling was really impressive specially on the side doors. The transmission was awesome and the seats were also of good material.
    Friends this is all what I know.

    I hope I have replied to most of the ambiguities in a very conscise yet detailed manner.

    @malik593
    NO dealer is allowed to enter the factory premises let alone the Q&A section. Dealers usually visit the corporate offices. (Again Have been told by that executive who happens to be the GM of IMC).
    Any way If you are doubting the authenticity of this thread I would say "Its a free world" Chill out dude.

    @All
    Thanks everyone!

    Regards

    Now for heaven's sake please stop Toyota-Honda war. This is a thread for new Toyota Corolla. There are plenty of Honda threads on Pakwheels, just enlighten them with your worthy views please.
