    Default GLI A/T or M/T

    Hello, I am planning to buy a new GLI and confused whether i should buy auto or manual. I have heard that M/T gives more fuel efficiency than A/T, and also with respect to driving experience which one'll be better option...?

    Depends where u live, if u live in big city with lots of traffic select auto , if not manual will do fine, automatic cars are blessing in today's traffic. Fuel average is slight higher in auto compare to manual drive.

    AT will definitely have higher fuel consumption ... Depends upon your preferences ... The price difference isn't that much ... With increasing traffic and trend of AT in pakistan AT is a better option ... But it will be a bit sluggish in case of Gli as compared to manual

    Obviously, on highway we can expect a better average.

    But in city, you can't expect more from it.

    Manual can give upto 12km/l in city

    1.3 auto is extremely underpowered.. a very big body on a small engine.. bad power weight ratio.
    if you can live with that go for auto otherwise manual..
    good luck and drive safe.

    if you can afford gli, you can defintely affort 1 km loss, the difference in auto is not much. Peole spend thousands on junk food but they fall in doubts when it comes to auto, think like you are going to kfc everyday man

    auto is too much comfortableand pleasure to drive, otherwise for kathak dance manual is fine, seriously in paki roads the manual drive is like kathak dance...

    If manual Gli 1.3 is great
    If auto, get at least 1.6 you will love its power and gives 11+ with AC in summer and 13+ in winters in city.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Brother forget about Pakistani Toyota, go for hybrid. I sold my gli and purchased Honda fit shuttle. It has a lot of features which even grandi does not have. It gives avg in city 16 + and on highways 20 + with full time AC. It has a lot of pick and no Pakistani car can beat it. Enjoy your life and go for Japanese cars.
