    Default 2014 Corolla 1.3 GLi AT - aliusman420

    So Alhamdulillah finally our brand new Corolla 1.3 GLi AT arrived today. Kindly do say Masha Allah
    We needed a family car and this new gorgeous Corolla recently launched which everyone fell in love with so we decided to go for it. As it would have been a general family use car we decided upon 1.3 GLi, initially we were planning to go for the manual one as had doubts about the automatic one, but after reading what our fellow @InNoCeNt_DeViL stated in his review of the test drive he took of GLi AT, our decision changed and we booked the automatic one. Due to the unstable security situation in Islamabad test drives are not being given.
    Date of booking on PBO was 19th August and car was delivered to us on 1st October.
    So far loving every bit of it, Alhamdulillah money well spent.
    It has put the critics to rethink their statement of the car being under-powered, Masha Allah the throttle response is very good.
    Currently the car is a Night Rider it is mainly being used in the second half of the day.
    So here go the reviews:
    1. Quick review from dealership to home Page 1 Post #3.

    2. Short review Page 4 Post #65.
    3. Daylight pics Page 4 Post #64.
    4. Slightly longer review Page 5 Post #96.

    5. Comparison with Lancer Page 6 Post #116.
    6. Brief comparison with Prius 1.8 Page 8 Post #145.
    7. Recent pictures Page 13 Post #253.
    8. First ever long journey of the car review along with pictures, Islamabad to Lahore via Motorway Page 18 Post #359.
    9. Extensive detailing session carried out on the car Page 22 Post #421.

    Stay tuned for more updates

    The fuel average of GLi AT is good enough as a family car, Altis 1.6 has better power to weight ratio that's why it is giving you 12 km/l.
    That's my point gli auto has a poor power to weight ratio Imc is already planning to launch Toyota Yaris hatchback in 1.3 which will increase the size of the engine of gli it will be 1.5 or 1.6 and this info was given to me by a 3s dealer. YAris will be same as vitz. It will be launched after 3 months

    These are all just rumours
    Recently gave an interview , you can call it post launch experience interview to two senior people from IMC
    I asked them if they have any plans for any other 1.3 sedan or hatchback or if they will discontinue xli or gli or if they have any plans of changing xlis or glis engine
    They said xli and gli both are the main bread and butter of IMC and they dont have any such plan
    The sales figures are countless ( xli n gli )
    Grande's demand is not that high now like it was initially and Altis 1.6 is hardly doing any business for them so far ..
    So far the best selling variant is Gli At then Gli Mt then Xli then rest of the Altis line up
    About hatchback they said they have a few options which they are testing these days and hopfully will bring something nice

    Furthermore they said
    " Sir aap ne zaroor pakwheels pe suna hoga k xli discontinue horahy hai aur gli mein 1.5 engine araha hai next year "

    Really lolz for that

    I know xli and gli has the highest sale it is because people think that it has a small engine and it will consume less petrol but people don't t research on technical specification of the car. Your information is correct but anything can happen in Pakistan.

    Go to reputable tire/rims dealers and leave your number with them to inform you when someone brings their brand new Altises for rim change. Get a price quote from them in advance.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    I am not aware, may be other friends reading this thread might know. I have been General tire users after using Yokohama (bought from Murree Road) and Dunlop (Melody). Check with any of two big shops in town and get the quotes.

    There used to be Pirelli showroom in Blue Area under/near Citi bank, don't know if still there.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Yes I also heard from a friend long, long time ago about them being good. But do check everything and be alert.
