    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.

    Its not a sub standard product (completely) just because of lack of options. Let me tell you our Corolla is still better than those sold in some parts of the world. Trust me. However, I would buy a less options car with better shape, inherent aerodynamics, natural stability and driving experience/thrill than a full option vehicle in Axio, Corolla X etc

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

    You summed it up pretty well leaving no room for any debate.

    UPDATE:

    I removed the ad from the classified section due to stupid and offers mostly from dealers and dealer-trained buyers that tend to put your soul on fire. For the moment, after all the analysis and taking into account the pros and cons of selling Hornet, I've decided to take it easy and move along. Are you guys ready to turn heads 360 degrees?

    I understand exactly how you must feel. I myself had the pleasure to own a Honda before and now I drive a Toyota. Every single time I drive it I do miss the fun I had driving my previous car. In terms of handling, transmission and pretty much everything except comfort Honda has done a better job.

    However, I do enjoy the comfort and higher ground clearance of the corolla, makes it sturdy to drive. It is also a safe investment since I can sell it whenever I want without loosing much. I'd suggest you live with it, I know it's hard not to regret but it is a car after all and you will get used to it. It is absolutely not worth to waste your time and money you have put in it. Cheers.

    @Haris.K
    Thankyou Haris, for the kind words and sane / reasonable advice. I'll just drive it for a about 16 months inshallah and then sell it at almost the same price (The Corolla advantage) and get something else.

    what a lovely explanation of Corolla , but what i assume is , genies like you deserve a 7 speed Grande ,with leather steering wheel and buket seats to feel the real pleasure Toyota had provided. by this we get a nice review of Grande which still i have not found on pakwheels since i own her since 6 months.the biggest difference i found in Grande is that she get in above 100km speed while your rmp needle stays below 2000rpm , which you can not find in any PKDM car and on top of that the fuel average never came below 14.8km on mine . you can take any car to higher speed by pushing it hard , but what a sweet feeling you get without pushing you get higher speeds even without engine sound , and high revs.

    Welcome back bro even after 16 months, when you will sell Hornet. You will regret selling it, because certain elements in corolla attract one really bad. You will smile looking at it when you know she will be always there for you, no matter what you drive it through she will just never die. Corolla is just meant to be loved.

    I don't own 11th gen, but I had Corolla Fielder, and I just get down and low when I think about it. I just regret selling it.

    I sincerely pray and hope that it turns out to be like that. I don't know 16 seconds into the future let alone 16 months. Appreciate your kind words nonetheless.
