    Default Toyota Corolla 2014 or City ....

    I am planning to buy a new car but
    Considering our fellow members concern, that gli AT would be underpowered. What experts advise if one should opt for Gli AT (1824k) or 200 k less City AT?
    What's the difference of 4 speed vs 5 speed AT.
    What is ECT
    What fuel economy one should expect from both of them.
    Can I consider 1.6 Gli AT of previous version?

    Regards
    MZK

    reviews for City AT are not good ...
    although 98 hp on paper but maaany people and fellow members have called it underpowered due to less available torque at lowrr rpms ... and fuel efficiency is not very good either 10-11.5 kpl with in city drive

    so you will very less happy customers/users for City AT on the forum also

    on thr othet hand Honda City manual is entirely a different story ... it seems powerful, agile and most fuel efficient of any 1300 cc cars availablw in the market ..

    although both are same vehicle but there is huge difference between the drive and user satisfaction of HONDA CITY AT and Honda City manual ..

    I am one thr happy owners of Honda City manual.

    coming towards Gli AT .. have you seen its 0-100 kph timings ??? although it is not related in a sedan intended to daily commute but let me tell you that it takes 18 secs to dash from 0 to 100 kph

    just to set the perspective Toyota Vitz with 1000cc , 3 cylinder tiny engine takes 14 secs ... to reach hundred.

    these are official toyota figures ..they just released the tests results for GLI AT

    1.3 GLI AT will be a disappointing chapter with mere 82 hp and 1700 kg to carry with 4-5 ppl onboard. Current gen GLI AT with 1.6ltr DUAL VVTi is sufficiently powered though


    so if I was you I'd stay away from both vehicles ... sorry but that is just how I feel ...

    Best for you Aspire 1.5 L Manual in 1670k and you'll get stock navigation, alloy, keyless entry and leather seats as well.

    Thanks Umair for your detailed reply.
    You have left me in bewilderment :-[
    I am lost, but just a novice question, does that Ect or 4 AT gear corolla vs 5 gear of city would have any thing to do with performance.
    Keep in mind I need this ride for my personal use, mostly office going. What other option Do you think I should consider?

    5 speed should perform better then 4 speed ..in theory but on ground the reality is not what one think

    4 speed auto is the transmission toyota was using in current generation 1.6 Altis but it was the bigger engine that overcame old transmission and it was just okay

    same 4 speed auto is found in 1.3 Vitz too but vitz is quite lighter as compared to Toyota ..now consider same engine and same transmission in the bigger 1300 kg SEDAN ....

    City 1.5 Aspire Prosmatec is not a good option either as spending 19 lacs on a CITY does not justify in my opinion



    if you want to buy City best ks base model manual ... 1.3 or atmost Aspire 1.5 manual ...

    City 1.3 automatic is okay but be very clear that its city fuel figures are 9-11 kpl and highway is 14-16 kpl and it is little slow at lower rpms but once the rpm crosses 3k and vtec engages but pulls just fine ...

    City auto is cheaper and thieves does not like it at all ... so if you can live with fuel figures and u know what u r buying u will be less surprised ...

    couple of days are left only ..let Gli auto come ... take 4 ppl along ..ur friends etc and ask then to sir besides u in the test drive of gli auto and floor the accelerator then deside for urself ...

    GLI is a better then city .. BUT also expensive by 2.5 lacs ...

    let me be specific ..I was talking about the build quality of GLI specifically not the drive train ... I meant that GLI is a better build car then honda city but in drive train part City leads ..

    yes test drive both .... and make a decision
