Safety will always be a priority for the Toyota Corolla Altis. As seen with its “Rising Star” for safety award during the ASEAN NCAP Grand Prix 2016, one is definitely assured that security and comfort is top-notch in this car.
Multiple airbags (seven, to be precise) are found within the car, placed at key locations (front, sides, along the curtains, and one by the motorist’s knee). The Corolla Altis is also equipped with a Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system, Cruise Control system, and a handy Seatbelt Warning alarm system to keep the urgent call of safety up at all times.

An Automatic Climate control system assures both the driver and his or her passengers that they’ll keep a cool head during trips (perfect for those pesky traffic jams!). Additionally, the Altis’ six speakers will assure passengers of concert-level trips – if they do choose to make use of the impressive sound system!
Yet, the thing is, some of the best and most comfortable features that the Altis has to offer needs to be uncovered and discovered from within. And that, in itself, is a welcome surprise! The car’s electronic and adjustable driver’s seat comes with lumbar support – this allows drivers to customize and set the most suitable seat position for more comfortable drives. It may be a small feature – but given the many and important effects it may have for motorists, more attention needs to be placed on this deserving feature!
Which is to say, when it comes to safety, the latest Altis is an excellent model that continues the safety legacy that the Corolla started. A touch of class and safety combined – probably one of the best highlights that Toyota continues to push with the Corolla Altis!
