Toyota markets the old Corolla in the Chinese market together with the next-gen vehicle as the ‘Corolla EX’ and the sedan has been provided a facelift to grasp the left over bit of life out of it.
The readers had already seen the spy pics of the vehicle previously. The Corolla EX facelift boasts a brand new front fascia that comprises innovative headlights, chrome front grill and a graved bumper. The revamped front fascia revives the appearances slightly.
The side view of the vehicles stays same as the old Corolla whilst the back of the vehicle is equipped with big rear lights. The back bumper is also bigger in size as compared to the old Corolla.
The sedan is catered by a 1.6-litre petrol motor that releases 120 bhp and is matched to either a 5-pace manual or 4-pace automatic gear cases.
The facelifted Corolla EX will carry a price tag of 90,800 Yuan (around Rs. 8.09 Lakhs) to 13,800 Yuan (around Rs. 10.14 Lakhs).
The facelifted vehicle will make its debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show after this month and will be rolled out in China just before 2012 end.
