In the year 2019, The C-segment sedan of Toyota Corolla Altis E210 with 2 variants was officially launched in Malaysia.
Under the bonnet, the Altis E210 is equipped with a 1.8 litre and 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated Dual VVT-i four-cylinder petrol engine. Suspension wise, a MacPherson strut setup at the front and the rear suspension has been upgraded to double wishbone (multi-link) units instead of the torsion beam.
How many bars available for Toyota Corolla Altis E210?
In Ultra Racing, the bars available for Toyota Corolla Altis E210 are Front Strut Bar, Front Lower Bar and Rear Torsion Bar. Based on our experience, Toyota Corolla Altis E210 does not require an upsize of the OEM rear anti roll bar or install additional anti roll bar as it is fine-tuned by Toyota carmarker. Installing multiple anti roll bars does not mean it will reduce body roll even more. A suitable size of anti roll bar is the most important in reducing body roll.
The functionality of each of the bars after installed on your Toyota Corolla Altis E210 are explained below.
Front Strut Bar
Toyota Corolla Altis E210 doesn’t come with the OEM front strut bar from the car manufacturer. For the Toyota Altis, Ultra Racing has developed a 2 points front strut bar, located at the top of the absorber (left and right) in order not to affect the normal procedure of service and maintenance.
The car chassis will affect the left and right strut tower and suppress changes in body distortion that occur during running. Furthermore, continuous stress will cause distortion little by little. As known by majority, tire friction, suspension forces, defects from rain water and old car with age will affect a car’s life span. Aftermarket suspension and modifications will also increase the burden of the car chassis.
One of the methods to deal with such a situation is to install a front strut bar/front tower bar, by connecting the left and right strut towers to increase rigidity. Apart from being easy to install, it is the most effective reinforcement part that demonstrates high performance.
STAGE 2 ( Lower Arm Bar )
Stage 2, comprisingFront Lower Bar, Mid Lower Bar and 2 types of Rear Lower Bar are able to reduce the car chassis flex and strengthen the main chassis platform. It is highly recommended for heavy load vehicles such as SUV or MPV as it helps to enhance the stiffness and handling during higher speed and cornering.
