    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

    Can anyone tell me how much it is legally allowed to drive an unregistered vehicle in Islamabad? my car currently has 200 km on the odo and does not even have the Applied For cards which came from showroom because they got wet while washing so automatically got removed. I'm thinking of getting AFR-2014 plates and running the car with them for a while, the year is about to end.

    True that, once i was in isb with my cousin in his 98 Civic medium tinted, got stopped on a check post, one call and he said, Sir Hum Yahin pe hotey hain, mera naam XYZ hai, koi bhi kaam ho tau humein zaroor yad kriye ga. App Jaiye takleef ke liye muazrat

    Those waiting for its comparison with my Prius will have to wait for a while, because I am driving the Prius since several months and have only driven this car 4-5 times till now, otherwise it stays garaged. So for a proper comparison, I have to drive it more to give a fair review otherwise it may be biased.
    Till now, both cars have a very very good turning radius, almost equal. The central locking of the Corolla is however a little louder than that of Prius, when all doors lock of Prius the sound is very dense, whereas that of Corolla is shallow, maybe because of the plastic quality difference or door insulation.
    As my Prius is a touring edition, it has slightly stiffer suspension, combined with 17" wheels, on rough roads the ride is a little rough but the case with Corolla is different, it is practically soundless on rough roads and handles quite well on them, so on rough roads Corolla takes the lead.
    The dimensions of Prius are compact, even though interior is very spacious, while the Corolla has fatter doors and other body panels, so passing through tight spots requires a bit more vigilancy.
    The braking of Corolla is slightly less grippy than that of Prius, that is Prius brakes respond instantly while for Corolla you have to put your foot a little further down.
    Even though the cars have different engine displacements and technological difference is there in the engine as well as the transmission, still in the comparison of my 1.8 Prius the throttle response of Corolla feels good, very good in fact, not at all underpowered.

    Get it registered now
    there won't be any bad impact on resale

    Even if you get it registered in 2015 still it will be called a 2014 model and you will get almost same amount for it
    So don't take any risk and get it registered

    There is time limit to get it registered without fine, My advice would be to get it registered ASAP as in case of any unfortunate incident, you would be in trouble.

    BTW Congrats on new car. I am making my mind to select manual or auto.

    Prices of these two items from dealership is quite high, 60-70k for Navi and 24k for genuine foglamps and 8k for chinese foglamps.

    Gear shifting is quite smooth.
    Ride height is reasonable, no tension of touching speedbumps.
    Suspension is quite soft, ideal car for bumpy and rough roads.
    Got tank topped up with 10 litres Hi-Octane and rest Super, ran out of fuel few yards away from the pump, screw you IMC for being so kanjoos of only putting 2 litres in the car of which you receive a hefty sum.
    Anyhow, a beautiful car and turns a lot of heads
    This can cause Fuel pump damage, A friends Camry worth 80Lac was screwed this way, He screwed IMC later on. Idiot manufacturers of Pakistan who will remain a baby forever.

    i was fearing the same thing that something doesn't malfunction because of the immaturity on part of IMC of providing only two liters in a brand new car which consumes more fuel.
