    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

    Hota kuch nahi but garri ko chalanay ka maza hi nahi ata. Change your tyres to yokohama or Michelin you feel hell of a difference in comfort and handling.

    Been there, done that twice. 19-20 ka faraq hota ha and that too for sometime.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Sir main nay to apnay czn ki 10 gen Gli main ye baat dekhi thi iss liye kaha, 2012 model aur 2014 end tak 18k were done and there was a clear difference in eurostars as compared to their original condition. Car runs almost daily and at least 1 out of city tour (on GT road, sometimes on bumpy village roads) in a month. Driven with care.
    As far as your ride is concerned I think that maybe your most of the journey is within Isb on carpeted roads resulting in less wear and tear of tyres and comfortable journey too. Other areas are not so good in terms of road conditions.

    Bhai 2011 kee zero meter xli office field duty per ha (on rent), din raat uss ko ragra rehta ha. Pakistan kay her konay hatta kay naran aur buhat say rural areas ma jaati ha. 90k tak tires ko kuch naheen hua, but I just asked our manager kay maalik ko zara tight karo kay iss ma power windows aur central locking hee lagwa day, but he changed the tires with new Euros.

    I made a loss because of not changing the tires immediately after delivery, otherwise the EuroStars that settled for 12,000 would've gone for 15,000 easily.
    To be very honest, the grip, driving pleasure, cornering ability has dramatically increased. On the stock tires it used to seem that as if the car is not in contact with the road, with these Michelins the story has changed altogether. Even my mother who is not a car person said that the car feels a lot more comfortable after these new tires.

    Wash it with a solution of shampoo and APC. Then apply Megs hyper dressing or endurance tire gel

    Alright guys time to bust the so-called "under-powered" blind baseless theories.
    Finally took the car to Monal today, 4 occupants on board and half tank of fuel, covered half the distance in full AC and afterwards kept switching it on and off according to the incline.
    Not even ONCE it felt like the car was giving up or struggling to its bits, went quite smooth all the way despite the fact that I was stuck behind some slowpokes because of whom I occasionally had to brake in-between an incline.
    The car went very smoothly even through the toughest curves where normally cars have to struggle to climb, I must say I am impressed and now can even take this car to Northern Areas In Shaa Allah.
    The Michelins have certainly improved the handling and grip otherwise before the tires changed I didn't even think of taking it up there on the crappy EuroStars.

    The motors are very powerful.
    We often take our insight to murree or margalla hills. Despite of having smaller engine and just 11 or 14 hp motor it climbs like a boss.
    The low end torque of motors are very good.
    You press the accelerator, RPM at 1.5 but the assist comes and the car climbs the toughest inclines.
    Prius engine develops a limited power but the motors are very powerful so basically a hybird performs better uphills until it has battery.

    I have taken my Prius as far as Nathiagali and Alhamdulillah it goes flawlessly even when the battery pack drains out, but this time GLi AT has inspired me as well and I plan to take it to the North In Shaa Allah when conditions stabilize.
