    Bro corolla would be a wise choice considering its a newer design ! City suspension is stiff ! Fuel economy wise city is better

    drive = corolla
    comfort = corolla
    pick = city
    road grip = city
    mentains = corolla (cheap)
    full economic = city
    resale = corolla (100%) city (90%)
    and corolla may security issue hain bht jaldi chori hoti ha
    aur city may security issue ni hain koi karta hi ni chori

    Both are good vehicles. It all comes down to personal choice. City is a nippy little sedan; has ample space and the boot is surprisingly bigger than Corolla's with 506 liters as compared to latter's 470 liters. It is also easy to manoeuvre in congested urban areas. With its stiff suspension, it will offer a stable drive on high speeds on the motorway, however, it will make for an uncomfortable ride on unpaved bumpy roads. Its excellent Fuel economy and 42 liter fuel tank will save you from frequent trips to the gas station.
    Corolla, on the other hand, is a rough and tough everday sedan. Its not a fun car to drive unless its a 1.8L variant, but it gets the job done...reliably! It has copius legspace, particularly in the back seat and can easily accomodate 5 persons in all. Suspension is soft and can take the abuse without any fuss on unpaved roads. Handling at high speeds on the motorway can be bit tricky if driving with stock tyres. Better to limit the speed to 110 kph to be on the safer side; Acceleration of the 1.3L is a tad sluggish as compared to the City but is quite acceptable for a car this size. Fuel mileage is average but then, it all comes down to your driving style. The key selling point of the corolla is its resale and the widespread availability of spares. The only downside of the Corolla is its high theft rate. If resale is not an issue, and don't mind depreciation in the event of launch of the new City model, the Aspire wouldn't be a bad choice. Again, I'd like to stress that its a matter of personal choice, requirement and your budget.

    Clearance is not an issue in the City as compared to the Civic. The issue at hand is the delayed launch of the new model. You never know What Honda Atlas will do next...They'd either skip the new model or spring a surprise. So, if depreciation is an issue, then yes, Corolla would be a wise choice. I've also been through the same dilemna. I'm currently an owner of a 2009 manual city. I love its drive quality. Heavy traffic during peak hours has forced me to opt for an automatic version. At first, I thought of going for the 1.5 Aspire auto, as it is a complete package, but rumors about the new model being launched next year has compelled me to go for GLI auto. At least your money will be safe, and when/if the new City is launched, you could always sell the GLI and go for the former. But, I can assure you, the comfort level in the Corolla will influence your decision of retaining it. Sure, it won't have the acceleration of the aspire, but that all comes down to personal taste. If the fear of depreciation is a concern, I would resist the temptation of going for the Aspire and opt for the Corolla. In the end, its you who gets to decide which one to opt for. Both cars are good in their own respect.

    Go for Gli if you are limited to Gli and Aspire
    Good Suspensions.
    Its quite spacious , huge leg room
    little bit security by inclusion of immobilizer.
    Trunk key opener
    And yes poor quality as expected from locally assembled car ( sounds and irregular spaces ) no quality check
