    Default 11th Gen Corolla (Hornet): An Unlucky Affair

    Introducing Corolla GLi 1.3 (Super ECT)
    Asalamoalikum respected PakWheel members and guests.
    Alhamdolillah, Allah has blessed me with this brand new car after I let
    Viper go to its next handler and keeper, after a very satisfying experience of a little over four years. With blessing from Allah (S.W) and friends like you, I hope to make this is a no-nonsense, extremely informative and enjoyable thread just like Viper. This cannot be possible without your support, appreciation, critique, guidance, sharing and participation. So hop in, like and subscribe.

    But, the driving experience has not been anything more than average. The only aspect in which this car stands out (at the moment in Pakistan) is its shape.

    Why? It is a new design with a different body and suspension.

    Even the previous gen could be taken on all those routes man. The ride height at the rear end is bad by default.

    I agree .... Its ridicoulously high and gap between fender and tyre is too much .... This gap must have been less keeping the ride at same height as it is now

    Exactly, and that is such a relief. It passes through all the speed breakers and broken roads untouched, no matter how many people are sitting in the car.

    Anyway, anyone knows what's the ground clearance of this corolla?

    10th Gen has 160mm.

    I love this Corolla and it's high ground clearance. Yesterday it went smoothly through Peshawar Morr Interchange construction site through deep muddy potholes and a ditch at the entrance of Bahria Town like a knife in the warm butter and yet it's road grip and handling is amazing.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
