Images of what is believed to be the facelifted version of the ASEAN region Toyota Corolla Altis sedan have emerged on the web.

Offered in a number of Southeast Asian nations such as the Philippines as well as in India, the Altis is one of the many market-specific versions of Toyota’s popular Corolla compact sedan, and is almost identical (cosmetically) to the European model.

The undisguised pre-production car seen here has newly designed front and rear ends. The face incorporates Toyota’s “X” styling theme with a pointy front grille and what look like LED units on the new bumper’s corners.

At the back, this Altis has clear tail lamp graphics along with a redesigned bumper and a rear deck spoiler. Whether this is a regular or some kind of sports edition of the 2016 Corolla remains unknown, but we should find out soon.

Is This Europe’s 2016 Toyota Corolla Facelift, Asia’s New Corolla Hybrid Or Both?

After the facelifted Auris hatchback and Touring Sports models presented at the Geneva show this week, Toyota may be preparing an update for its other compact model, the Corolla sedan.

These screenshots were taken from a fresh set of animated videos from Toyota Europe showcasing the firm’s new range of advanced active-safety systems bundled under the ‘Toyota Safety Sense’ umbrella.

The animated car shown in all clips looks like a facelifted version of the European-spec Corolla sedan with a pointier new face and a bumper design modeled after the revised Auris. Some minor changes seem to have taken place at the back as well, including a slightly different chrome strip between the lights and a revised bumper.

More intriguingly, the instrument cluster shots clearly show a hybrid model gauge on the left hand side.

Toyota offers a number of market-specific Corollas with various styling and mechanical changes around the world, so if this isn’t the European model, the only other explanation we can think of is that it depicts the upcoming Corolla Hybrid with a 1.5-liter petrol engine assisted by an electric motor, reportedly designed for China and possibly, other Asian countries.

A big hat tip to Ayberk!
