    Default Corolla Airbags?

    Hi guys,
    Any idea why Corolla does not come with dual airbags? Any insider info if they are planning to do it in the future? Just curious why Civic does and Corolla Altis does not when price is quite similar. Just trying to understand the logic.

    Yr new airbag cost you around more then 35000 so if indus toyota puts airbags in car its price will increase exponentialy thats the resion behind no air bags in our local made cars.
    Ever for abs they charge more then 50000.
    Beshak ALLAH he sy hy sub waqt sy pehly nahin zarorat sy zada nahin.

    If they do so,then what are they going to offer in their new model?Civic offers Air Bags in Oriel only why not in VTi doesn't its a safety feature to be offered in all Civic,why a ABS is there in 2.0.D Saloon but not in basic 2.0.D Corolla when engine,body,suspension is same means all criteria is to be same.

    Guys, I understand why certain models have it and others don't. My specific question was why Oriel has it and Altis does not since they are in the same price range. Isn't Altis competing with vti Oriel in Pakistan?

    Then just like that i can ask that why does corolla have cruise control option whereas civic doesn't? and they're both in the same price range too...
    both car's have their ups and downs, so its up to you to decide what you need or prefer more.

    To Honda, the safety of its customers is more important.

    Thats simple logic if you're looking for logic.

    even if there was no pressure of competition and cars import issue.they would have kept producing cars without air bags

    and most of the local man even dont want as their replacement cost is high...so i see honda customers more towards safety side
