    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

    1) Allways use dedicated car shampoo with double bucket method
    2) allways use good quality clean microfiber wash mitts / clothes for car washing, drying etc
    3) never ever dry dusting
    4) use more natural waxes as natural waxes having fillers , natural waxes give boost to dark paints and mask minor swirls
    5) since black color dust easily seen on surface so u require good quality detailer spray for daily use to keep surface dust free without scratching

    Whenever u come Lahore meet me will give u lots of tips and tricks as in past i also had one black car so i have some experince
    I carry out most of the steps you mentioned already other than natural wax I have little info on the kinds of waxes and yes In Shaa Allah whenever I come to Lahore we will meet up

    Comparison with 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer:
    Alhamdulillah our Lancer has been with us since 28th of September, 2006. Yes I still remember the date it entered the family. It was bought brand new back then and has loyally served us so far Masha Allah.
    So comparing the latest entry in the garage, the GLi AT, with Lancer is a bit confusing.
    The driving feel and comfort from the 8 years old Lancer can be called at a tie with the new Corolla, previous Corollas never even came close to the comfort Lancer offered, that is why didn't buy any of them. The feel you get while driving the 8 years old Lancer, you get almost the same, or might be a bit less, in the brand new Corolla.
    Suspension wise again both can be compared at par, still the Lancer's suspension feels a bit softer than Corolla, you can say 18-20 difference.
    Cabin space is more obviously of the Corolla in comparison with the Lancer, but Lancer's interior ain't squeezed either.
    Engines of both cars are 1300 cc, horsepower of Lancer as stated by its manual is 90 hp and the Corolla has 82 hp according to the people, didn't check it's manual so far. However, none of the cars feel under-powered at all. In fact, I tested my Lancer against several 1300 cc cars and to everyone's surprise, it was faster than many of them, other than the current Honda City.
    If we compare the built quality, Lancer takes the lead. The car is properly assembled and professionally painted, unlike the Corolla which has rough paint on the door handles, and Lancer's body including the bumpers is stronger than the Corolla. However, Corolla's built quality isn't bad either but the rough paint on door handles really bugs me, IMC could've done a better job at it. Other than that, everything seems to be in order.
    Fuel consumption at the moment cannot be compared because Corolla has a brand new sealed engine, it will take some time before its fuel average improves, not expecting wonders but anything above 10 km/l is reasonable enough.
    The interior plastic that is used in Lancer is far more superior than that used in Corolla, it is quite evident even to the naked eye. The Lancer interior feels solid, while that of Corolla looks a bit more fragile in its comparison.
    Road grip of Lancer is unmatched in its class, this new Corolla is trying to come close to it and it is faring better than the previous models.
    One additional thing that the Lancer has is driving seat height adjuster, which the Corolla lacks and is quite a beneficial feature to be honest, because my height is 5'6" and I can easily see the bonnet of Lancer whereas in Corolla I have to struggle a bit.
    If we compare the original speakers of both the cars, then again Lancer takes the lead, the stock speakers are Masha Allah still pumping good even after 8 years of abuse not use
    One problem that Lancer had was of low ride height specially with passengers and luggage but I got rid of that when its tires got changed, I got a slightly higher profile tires, from 185/65/R14 to 185/70/R14 and because of such a minor change the speed-bump touching menace went away. Corolla has a good ride height and it's very hard that a Corolla on stock suspension ever touches a speed-bump, even if you put a buffalo in the trunk

    So that was all that could come up in my mind regarding comparison in Lancer, any other queries in comparison of these two particular cars, feel free to ask
    8th Gen Mitsubishi Lancer 1.3 GLX 2006; 3rd Gen Toyota Prius 1.8 S-Touring 2010; 11th Gen Toyota Corolla 1.3 GLi AT 2014.

    The eleventh generation corolla has 1nr-fe engine which gives 98hp. Tenth generation corolla with 2nz-fe outputs 85hp not 82
