    Default a very strange decision...GLI vs 2.0D Saloon :P

    hello guys...a really weird friend of mine is stuck between two cars:

    -corolla GLi 2010
    -corolla 2.0D saloon 2010

    both zero meter....now he says that he wants fuel economy, thats why is dad is not letting him buy corolla altis or civic (8th gen zero meter)...

    i have told him that if he is spending 17 lac on 2d saloon, than its better to get civic or altis...but he says fuel average is very low for 1.8 liter cars...

    so now he is deciding between GLi and 2D saloon...i only like the interior/exterior of 2D saloon..rest its all noisy old engine dont u think..
    what would you guys do?

    let him noe GLI doesnt do more then 10 km/L,

    11 km/L in rare cases. if u drive real aram se, tameez se, and dont go above speeds like 40-60.

    and ya the deisel version gives gud economy. but its maintaince is more (i think)
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    his father is worried about the fuel issues i mean usage but mind 2.0d has no resale in market these days i have seen so many guys while disposing their 2.0d's in new shape with a lot market difference so dont go for it as its oil and other expenses are much higher then altis and civic reborn even so its better to go for city auto instead corolla gli as manual cars are now becoming difficult to handle in todays traffic flows.rest ur opinion
    i am sugar and spice....and everything is nice.....but if u mess with me...just think on twice!!!!

    true...manual cars are difficult to drive in traffic...

    anyway, the friend has no issue of money. they already have many cars at home. he just needs for going to university and his brother. so their father says to get corolla which has the best economy...he intends to keep it for 3-5 years minimum.

    mera tou dil hai that he gets imported car or altis/civic 1.8. but father says to get corolla pakistani GLi or 2D saloon

    GLi....good resale..average economy
    2D saloon....poor resale...excellent fuel economy +saloon features like alloys+player+optitron meter etc

    so i guess 2D saloon is better

    well I am 2.0d wner but 97 model,It is a lovely dependable powerful with no boundaries,but a big BUT that it will suit a person who travels quite often outside the home town but not to a person who just has 2 go university daily,another thing is weither he would go 4 CNG in GLI or not?If not then 2.0Dsaloon would be my bet.MY car's old engine done around 300000 k without an overhaul and still rocking,The car doesnt need any maint extra then the petrol ones,Keep the fuel more than 1/4 in ur tank all the time n u wont get fuel filter or fuel pump probs.Diesel engine is easy to maintain ,doesnt drain ur battery every year.Even the air filter is fully choked it will keep u gong but for a petrol/Cng 2 b precise u r all the time running btw plugs,and air.
    and above all TOYOTA DIESELS r having more life than petrol engines.As far as resale is concern KAUN JEETA HAE TERI ZULF KAE SER HONAE TAK.enjoy it 2 day dont plan on its resale after 4 yrs when u never know what is the fuel situation in this uncertain country
    HONDAS are like GIRLFRIEND and, TOYOTA a life partner always with u even going is tough..

    NO Cng in the GLi if he gets that...

    yar very conflicting opinions about average of GLi...

    anyway, I have told him to get 2D saloon because of good fuel average...

    @blackheart: you are the only person who says that civic gives 11km/ltr. normally its around 6-7km

    If someone can afford a Rs 1.7 million car then i think he should not worry too much about fuel economy. If fuel economy is important then you should go for a 1.0l car like a Cultus, Belta or maybe an Alto. A bigger car will be better but consume more fuel. Calculate how much driving you do and if the cost of fuel in 1-2 years is more than the price difference between a GLi and 2.0D then buy the 2.0D. Final decision is of course yours.
