Apparently, the new aerodynamics of the Altis is supposedly contributed by its other accesories like the shape of the A-pillars, windshield wipers and the flush mounted windscreen glass. The variants of the engines are the similar to the former 1ZZ-FE and 3ZZ-FE DOHC 16 valve VVT-i engines albeit some minor technical changes. The 1.8 liter 1ZZ-FE gives 132 PS at 6,000rpm and torque teaches its peak of 170Nm at 4,200rpm. The 1.6 liter 3ZZ-FE produces 109 PS at 6,000rpm and 145Nm of torque at 4,400rpm and has the same horsepower output with the Toyota’s 1.5 liter 1NZ-FE in the Toyota Vios and are standard 4-speed automatic transmission gears.
The higher versions, the 1.8E Sporty and 1.8G Sporty versions comes standard with a bodykit plus front and rear lips and side skirts and comes in 5 colour choices, Silver Metallic, Medium Silver Metallic, Black Mica, Beige Metallic and Greyish Blue Metallic.
