    Default Buying GLi

    I am planning to buy GLi (or automatic Citi is also under consideration). My question to the fellow PWheelers is about the following two things:

    a) Does GLi come with a Fuel Cut System

    b) Does it have a multi-information dispaly or not.

    The spec sheet i obtained from Toyota Capital says it has above features but the website of Indust Motor tells otherwise.

    A few months back it was reported by our PW friends, that GLi/XLi have a very noisy AC compressor? is it correct.

    Can a GLi be equipped with any additional features/accessories that usually come with higher end products like ALTIS or 2.0D Saloon.

    its a very nice decision to go for a gli if its in ur range easily.
    a:dont know about fuel cut
    b:gli has multi information display like fuel average,time,l/100km and entry exit time but altis has more information in display like which door is open or any malfunction in car system.

    Its not at all under powered, its a bit slower in pick up as compared to previous model and thats due to electronic throttle (Drive by wire). It has multi info display. there are tons of add ons available for new corolla.

    I even bought a brand new Altis optitron meter for my GLi from Shahid autos and car accessories they have tons of stuff available for corolla. They also have a huge variety of car care products (Polishes, shampoos etc) mothers, Tutle wax, meguairs, soft 99. For meters and other related stuff call mohsin @ 0333-5340441

    We went to Nathiagali on our GLI. There were 5 adults in the car along with trunk full of luggage. We had no problems at all and the car easily went up to Greens resort. If this is a characteristic of an underpowered car, then I don't know what an overpowered car (in PW terms, its a 'reborn' civic) would do.....probably start flying?

    I own GLI 2010 and have driven CITY 2010 MT, and I'll choose GLI over CITY anyday.
    And car is not underpowered.

    a) Don't know about it but I think it doesn't have it.
    b) Yes multi-information has following options: Clock, Elapsed time for any trip, Instantaneous Average, Overall average, Average Speed, Clock, and option for selecting km/l or L/100km.

    AC is very good and Cabin is also quite. Accessories for this model are very common and you can find them easily.

    Regarding being underpowered, it is not underpowered at all. It's suspension is according to Pakistani roads. One time I went to visit River Ravi near Narowal. My friend took me through an off-roading track and we were 6 people in the car. When I saw the track, I thought it will be very difficult to reach the river bank but GLi did it easily.

    So its a good decision if you go for GLi.

    any ideas if there is a shape change (even a minor one) anticipated for GLi 2011. One can wait for a couple of months and get the new shape ...
