I desperately need a new car. The new Honda Civic by Atlas Honda is attracting me a lot. Despite its high price it has performed very well among the public in sales. The old Honda Reborn was introduced in 2006 and replaced by the current model in October 2012. In all those years a total of 45,479 units were sold and to date, in about a year, about 14000 units have been sold of the new 2013 Atlas Honda Civic which is a very pretty performance (Why Honda Pakistan wants to double the production next year | PakWheels Blog)
Just compare it with its rival the Indus Motor's Toyota Corolla Altis. Back in 2011, Indus Motors reduced the engine from 1.8L to 1.6 in an attempt to sell the car with the hope that it will sell well because of the reduced price. People didn't even spit on it. Now this gives Indus Motors a clear message; stop playing games with us, improve your product and give us quality otherwise we will not even think of spitting on your Altis.
Indus only sells its XLi and GLi well. The 1.6 GLi Auto has attracted users well who want an automatic transmission. Virtually the 1.6 GLi Auto and 1.6 Altis Auto are the same cars. Same old Phit (SOS). Now this is what you call playing games. Get a 1.6 GLi Auto and 'convert' it into an Altis, my word, what a mess Indus Motors is giving us.
The new 2014 Corolla is being eagerly awaited by car users which is to be launched soon by Indus Motors in a few months. I hope Indus Motors learns some lesson with the failure of its Altis with its competition with the Honda Civic.
Compared to Indus Motor's crappy Altis, the Atlas Honda's Civic Reborn and the new 2013 Civic have a good resale value. If you do a survey of the market, you won't find many 1.6 Altis buyers but you will find a lot of Atlas Honda's Civic buyers even though it is an automatic. This is quite amazing.
Q.E.D (quod erat demonstrandum): The Atlas Honda's Civic is a better car than Indus Motor's Toyota Corolla Altis.
