    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.

    Good decision. I wish you get well soon and get a better car.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Thanks Azraam bhai for the wishes. I was mentally uncomfortable, really uncomfortable with the car. Needed to get rid of it. Alhamdolillah got a reasonably decent offer and didn't think twice.
    Checked out 5 Toyota Vitz cars. Picked the best one possible. Decent car hope it serves me well. By the time Allah blesses me another vehicle of my liking, i hop the Vitz will either retain its value or become a secondary vehicle for the home.

    Vitz is a nice car
    When i was looking for a used 8th gen Civic i myself checked many 4.5 grade Vitz
    At one point i made my mind to go for it since it seemed almost impossible to find a neat clean Reborn and keeping two 1.3 Corollas was not a good idea
    As you already know aap se 1 hazam nae hui mai 2 kese hazam kerta
    Then before taking any final decision i decided to take a test drive of one of the Vitz
    It was a 4.5 grade car in almost brandnew condition
    Anyways
    The moment i started driving it i realised it was not the right car for me
    The 3 cylinder 1.0 ltr engine just ruins the overall pleasure
    It almost felt like i was driving a 2006 passo same response same engine sound ( which is really bad no offence ) same feel at the steering and gas pedal
    I think these both have same engines if i am not wrong
    Anyways what i am trying to say is very simple
    This old 2nz fe in new corolla Gli Auto still gives much much much more driving pleasure than Vitz
    Road grip is much better than vitz
    I mean there is no comparison and I am afraid you have taken another bad decision
    When Gli Auto simply failed to impress you Vitz is nothing to talk about
    I agree in hatchbacks it is one of the best
    But still lacks driving pleasure
    And if you really wanted to enjoy the driving pleasure ( your main concern ) then you should have gone for a brandnew swift or new shape of jdm imported swift
    It has excellent road grip acceleration and driving pleasure


    Khair
    Still many congrats

    And Get well soon Bro

    Bro, which model of Vitz have you tested?

    The drawback of Swift is higher taxes and bad fuel mileage.

    2013 4.5 grade
    Fresh import
    Yes i agree what you have said about swift but in driving pleasure swift is better
    Rest vitz is better interior layout
    Quality of plastics
    Space
    Everything is better in vitz plus you get power retractable mirrors
    And airbags
