The all-new 2014 Toyota Corolla has been revealed by the Japanese car leader and the sedan is ready to make its debut in the month of September, 2013. However, this eleventh generation Corolla sedan is going to come up in its two separate avatars, one of which is reserved exclusively for the US market, while the other is meant for the other car markets around world.
As for the Indian auto market, where the car enthusiasts are pretty excited to receive this new sedan with far heightened style quotient, the Corolla that is meant for the European market is expected to arrive with very few alterations to suit the Indian market demands and price preference. Now, this same India or rather Asia bound all new 2014 Toyota Corolla was caught testing the roads in Thailand to test its capabilities prior to launch.
The next generation Toyota Corolla which is called a design evolution over its predecessor when launched will be replacing the ongoing model of Toyota Corolla Altis both in the car markets of Thailand as well as India. The one thing that is still not known is the fact whether or not the all new Corolla will retain the Altis tag in these two markets.
The all new 2014 Corolla was spotted testing the roads albeit with heavy camouflages to hide its brand new features. However, its basic shape, structure and the positioning of its taillights do reveal the real identity of this car.
The Toyota Corolla has been a bestselling global car for the world’s most selling auto maker for decades. The all new Corolla will be manufactured in many parts of the world, one of which is Thailand, while is bestselling car is also manufactured in Sakarya, Turkey and Mississippi, USA.
The all new Corolla’s entering the test phase in Thailand is in way very important for it’s the Indian market, as though the Indian Corolla Altis is a localized model it still depends on the Thai manufacturing facility for several components. Thus, if the manufacturing factory in Thailand starts producing the next generation 2014 Corolla, the Indian Corolla counterpart will sooner or later automatically get to have this all new sedan.
Recently, though the Indian market conditions are very gloomy, the D sedan segment of the country is getting to experienced many brand new and upgraded models. Nevertheless, several auto makers are dismayed as the segment is getting fragmented but that is stopping them from introducing fresh models. The 2013 Skoda Octavia has already debuted in the Indian market, while the Renault Fluence facelift is also braced up to hit the market at least by this upcoming festive season of India.
India has the current generation of Toyota Corolla Altis, which is incidentally the oldest vehicle in its segment and this fact has become a disadvantage for the car. This situation is soon expected to be changed by Toyota Kirloskar Motor in India, when it introduces the all-new 2014 version by the middle of next year.
