    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.

    every one has his own preferences.. i have seen gli auto with 35000 km on odo .. owner was vvv much satisfied. previously he owned eagle eyes civic

    and i have seen new civic owners are complaing about bad shape and very slow resale as they want to get New corolla due to best shape...

    never compare it with reborn 1.8 ...
    compare it with Honda City then you got your answer... 1.3 auto is best hit of market so far and longer delivery time..

    Ditch or loose the cheap HIDs and get these installed. More visibility with an awesome cut off line, clarity and above all, technically compatible to suit your car's battery and wiring, the proper way. I'll post some photos and if possible video for you people to judge. You may not take my word for it. I now know what I've been missing all these years.
    price?

    No matter how much modifications and add-ons you do, a GLI will remain 1.3L car with no comparison to 1.8L and comfort of grande.

    what else reason are you expecting ?

    Engine displacment differences and additional cosmetics

    A person wants to know that how much should he need to pay to get what level of comfort. After spending around 500k and comfort level increases only 10 to 20 % , he needs to decide by reviews . Fouad bhai reviews are great to read and help people in deciding different things so people wants to know that which part of Gli is lacking to make him believe to sell his car.

    No doubt the owner has explained his GLI quite well... but i guess after reading all his posts.. it has become quite obvious that the amount he has spent on modifications is not worth the value/ pleasure.

    But lets see whats the owner final take on this.

    I am not just chorhing but a friend of mine who uses new rental 11th gen xlis and glis for field work and these are usually a few hundred or thousand kms driven, when sat in my Altis said the interior was way better than xli-gli and also the seat was more comfortable.

    I said all Corollas have same interior he said at least he can say that 1.6 interior is better in finish and smoothness and it was more comfortable.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Altis is a car, Unlike Xli/Gli.

    Rental cars are abused boxes of junk. you cannot compare them to a vehicle which is owned and driven by an individual. Further, technically speaking there are no differences in interior or comfort of 1.3 and 1.6. I have seen many 1.6 altis with much more quality issues than 1.3. Moreover, everyone shall understand that 1.3 AT is a car for a person who can spend 1,824,000. other person has 125K more and wants to enjoy bigger engine buys 1.6. Why not any body here understands that 125K above 1.3 or 500k above 1.3 carry relative importance and value. some people dont have even a rupee to spend after buying 1,824,000 car.

    Everyone is wise enough for his interest and buy whatever he likes after considering his pocket condition. So please chill . . . .
