    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

    I haven't travelled in 9th Gen Civic that much so can't give a verdict but you can ask from @InNoCeNt_DeViL bro his reviews as he owned both simultaneously, previously 9th Gen Civic and 11th Gen Corolla and now 8th Gen Civic and the 11th Gen Corolla GLi AT.

    well 10/km is not a bad and good average. I guess, should be 11-12/km.
    If you consider Lahore traffic so i guess, it will not give a good average. What you say?

    I took it to Lahore when it covered its initial 1000 km on that trip average revolved around 8.5 at that time, should do 9.5-10 in my view at least in the Lahore traffic towards the DHA and Gulberg like areas, in old Lahore it might drop down to 7 km/l even.

    Well, i was very well inclined towards GLI A/T. But these fuel figures are not impressive especially when you have this car for daily drive.

    These figures improve with time, the average will go above 11 km/l once the car attains a decent odometer reading.

    Those are pretty nice figures I must say Masha Allah. Actually I drive with a heavy foot as well that's why a bit low on the average plus AC is on 100% of the time because I don't roll down the windows due to the interior getting unnecessarily dirty

    Default 2014 Corolla 1.3 GLi AT - aliusman420

    @aliusman you were absolutely right about changing tires.
    Today I have changed my car tires to "Advan Db", driving experience has totally changed.. So far I have noticed that steering response has improved a lot. Braking has also improved.
    Believe me car feels very light now, I can feel the road.. It feels like there was a heavy load on suspension, which isn't there anymore..
    Another thing which I have noticed is that Eurostars perform much better on bumps and pot holes but I would still prefer better handling and steering response which comes from yoko's.
    Anyways let's see how it performs further down the lane.
    Just wanted to share my experience for people who are in a dilemma of changing tires..

    Yes this is what I had explained when I changed my car's tires, the stock tires don't feel in contact with the road at all, at least to me, specially after experiencing Pirellis on my Prius, what beautiful tires they are I swear!
    Glad that you have experienced the same thing after changing your car's tires

    One of my friend bought City Aspire last month and all the time he is regretting his decision. He says that after spending more than 1.5 million, no comfort at all and he feels so tired after every journey.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
