Today i have booked GLI from Toyota Capital in Medium Silver. Expected delivery date is 2nd or 3rd week of April with the lame excuses about Japan incident, that the delivery might be delayed because of parts import from japan.
Let's wait and see when it comes under my foot
While only Xli and deisel variants were avalible same month and a price list was also given.
Btw ur booking form on top right/left would/should have tentaive delivery period mentioned.
i went to toyata showroom they told me that they will not launch any model before 3years.
Any prices you remember? Am particularly interested in the gli price or any data that would make the guessing easier.
^ Prices arent disclosed yet. So no ones sure about them, but someone on this thread mentioned there taking bookings for a million and rest of the payment on delivery.
yes Xlis 1337,000 price was written on the board. and Altis 1.8 all models said N/A (not avalible) and deisel variants prices were also there i guess.
here is another gift of Mr. 10% , GLI Price increased by 20000/= and now its 1482000/= and you will hear soon another price increase by Indus at end of March. Surely it will go around 1510000/=
Yesterday i handed over the pay order of 1462000/= and Today they are asking they will send my booking to Indus after receiving another 20000 draft.but this time its not Indus its CED revised (1% to 2.5%) by Mr. 10%.
And while we are it, have you driven the GLI? Do you own one? Have you driven a GLI with 5 people and trunk full of luggage up the Nathia Gali Hills?
As far as drawbacks/owning the car are concerned, I answered "NO" earlier because I feel owning a car shouldn't be a certificate enough to warrant an educated discussion but since people feel it is, here you go
Not only I own the current shape GLI but also a Altis S/R Cruisetronic. Will now you believe my word that GLI isn't underpowered? Yes I have traveled up the hills of Nathia Galli with 5 people and trunk full of luggage and not once did I had any problems overtaking someone or navigating the climbs.
man come on slow down mani its just a discussion
now allow me to show u some facts ,,,, city is 73 kw(abt 99 hp) and xli/gli is 63 (abt 85.6 hp) and a standerd xli is 150 kg havier then city,,,, u know maths right as for the hills 4 yrs ago wn i had a mehran i drove it wt 4 ppl inside to naran and shugran and many places nearby its mostly how u drive my friend failed get his city 07 up to shugran its how u drive,,,,
yes city sales r low its due to the production capability of atlas honda they r making 500-700 civic and 750-900 city per month where as toyota is making 3700-4500 corolla per month is there plant capacity,,,,
u have a right to express yr mind,,, others have too and every 1 has there point....
People complaining cow being underpowered kindly clarify if they say it with CNG or Petrol?
Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
And as for a matter of fact, even a mehran can overtake anything in Nathia Gali and adjoining areas. Its all about slope angle, traffic conditions etc.
As you're well educated, compare the power to weight ratio of both cars and do compare it with 9th generation Gli while doing the maths. Iam not at all saying Gli is crap or anything just because it cannot reach 60mph in XYZ seconds. Come on we're not dealing with V8s or V12s here.
The whole point is, Gli was supposed to have atleast 10-20 more hp in its new model considering the 150KG added weight.

Well if 10th gen GLI/Xli is underpowered or not but it sure is slow then the 9th gen so thats alll LOL
If a car is underpowered, people wouldn't buy it. It is as simple as that. Take a look around and you will find that over 90% of GLI sales can be categorized as
1)It is the Main car at home (usually in rural areas and urban middle classes)
2)It is the second main car at home (usually in urban areas)
3)It is 3rd or 4th car at home and in use of family or children (usually in urban upper middle class)
The first 2 classes occupy bulk of the sales e.g. take a look around in cities other than Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi and you will find that almost everyone has a GLI. Why do you think the first two classes buy GLI? Why would these people buy GLI if it is underpowered? If it is underpowered they could have opted for Honda City or previous model Se Saloon or 06 Civic or swift or they could have added 3 lacs more and opted for Altis. Remember they are already paying humongous amount of 15 lacs for a GLI so adding 3 lacs isn't difficult for them.
I have lived in Rahim Yar Khan and have friends over there who have GLIs, each and everyone of them. When I inquired that why don't they buy Altis (all of them can easily afford one, being landlords and transporters) as it is more powerful, all of them said that GLI is adequate for their needs, is fast enough, is reliable and has excellent sale. None of them mentioned lack of power or anything.
Plus, I myself own a GLI apart from owning Altis and Civic (amongst local cars). I have also owned almost every variant of all corollas and civics in the last 10 years. If the current GLI was underpowered in any respect, I would have said it. I don't have to defend GLI's resale on internet forums, (as it is already strong as an iron) and neither is it my favorite or personal car
As for more people buying GLi over City, you do understand the class difference between "COROLLA" and "City". Which means a person going for City will think, "oh wait, why shouldnt i buy GLi which is a "COROLLA GADDI" with a big boot and can be modified to look like an Altis?" Which is being done regularaly here on Pakwheels aswell.
Incase Belta 1.3 is introduced at "CHEAPER" rate then GLi, People will still buy 1.3 GLi because Betla is a SMALL car and GLi is a BIG car! Hence the sales of Gli will always be on top. The whole point is, atleast in Pakistan, sales figures donnot justify the "quality" OR "performance figures" of a car.
If you still donnot agree, answer a simple question, What will you prefer?
A powerful BMW 550i or a BMW 730d? You do get the point now right?

@mani, GLi takes lead in higher number sale to City because of some factors.
1) adding 1 lack in 13 lacks is no big deal for any one.
2) You get a bigger car
3) Hondas are fragile. Toyotas are tough (specialy in rough driving conditions)
4) Gli by far, enjoys the best resale in the 1.3L category.
5) It does feel better to park a Gli, rather then a City.
6) Corolla due to its mature looks attracts every one. City has a young look old people realy dont like it.
And several other factors.... The basic point is as @Qwerty said, some how the 10th Gen Corolla is just not as gud as the 9th Gen Corolla. Thats all id like to say.
Now lets not starts a Corolla City war here.
Also let me tell you that people in smaller urban cities or rural areas are more touchy about engine power than you might be lead to believe. Highway races are abundant and even within city, people take pride in the fact that their car is fastest in the area. I partially agree with your point that GLI has other features too on top of City, which contribute towards its higher sales, but trust me, if it was underpowered, the sales would have been much lower.
As far as 07 GLI being better than '10 GLI, this couldn't be more farther from the truth. I own both cars NOW, and I invite you to see and test BOTH OF THEM simultaneously. the '10 GLI is much better in ALL aspects. To sweeten up the competition, my 07 GLI has 15" rims and SP Sport 9000 tires while 10" GLI has Eurostar tires but still '10 GLI is much better in performance and braking. The looks, interior, exterior and overall feel of the '10 is also much much better
