    06 altis was too much car for it's own good, the powerplant was a bad setup for how the chassis is setup for PK, maybe as an auto it'll be better but as a manual my brothers car was undrivable.

    maybe they have improved it for 07 but i doubt it.

    however it's a MUCH better option to the civic (vaule for money) but i'd still suggest the lancer or optra.

    I Will Second Storm In Lancer Thingy..
    Lancer is surely value for money..
    Anyways What I Can Recommend You Is To Go For Accord Cl7. It will costs u Around 13 -15 Lakh. Its very Nice Car.

    Now Coming To The Point.
    I Dont Think So Its Value ForMoney. It Dont Even Got Sun Roof. And Corrolla has made bad repu regarding it with Xli.
    Shape is same.. Though If U are Corolla Fan Then Its Ok..
    Else ZSeriously Its too Expensive
    Anyways Xain @ Pakwheels.com Got Altis Auto.. He got it when it was Newly Introduced. Back In 2005. He May Guide You Better.
    Plus This Car Lacks Resale Thingy..

    NO.

    One can easily see that it is overpriced.

    Besides ALTIS is the TOP OF THE LINE model of COROLLA in PAKISTAN but it still lacks in the SUN ROOF & there is also the presence of awful HUMP in it aswell.

    I agree with Storm and Usman4u. The manual altis is simply too rough a ride. Driving is extremly harsh. The auto is a MUCH better option (me having both have a very good taste of both of em).

    Also those blokes at toyota won't fit a sun rooof OR a side mirror retractor mech in it ? a 13 lakh car without these things is DEF over priced ! BUT it's a good car to drive and SORT of a good value for money with Brake assist, EBD and ABS.

    In locally manufactured options Altis Automatic is a nice option.
    In 1600CC and 1800 CC class your options are really narrow and in that bracket its a best thing.
    when you look at the engine technology ,spare parts,economy and resale it has everything more than its competetiors.
    Yes its suspension is outdated compared to Civic but for long journeys on rough roads its excellent.
    Also another big factor is the availability. Altis is available in around 2 weeks where as for Honda Prosmetic its 2-3 months time and for Oriel prosmetic its 5-6 months time.
    If you walk away from your car and don't look back, you have bought the wrong car.

    @xain

    its rear suspension is the reason for so much space in the rear and the boot, cause it takes up less space.

    Maybe im biased (Honda guy) but i cant get y Altis is value for money. 1st of all, all corollas look alike, so u buy an XLi, fit in rims, grill, side skirts 'n if u still have a prob, put an Altis marker on the back, presto u have an altis as long as no1 looks inside. Almost 1300K for a car, 'n toyota didnt even give alloys... lol. Plus, Altis doesnt have good resale, SE Saloon didnt have good resale as well, though Toyota sure can sell diesels.

    Personally i think Civic is worth the money u pay for it. Spares for accord CL7-9 are expensive if u can find them. But thats how I think, a lotta ppl will disagree with me, had a civic, now a city and Inshallah will get a new civic.
    Why drink and drive, when you can smoke and fflllyyyy...
