    Default Corolla XE vs Baleno 1.3

    Assalam-o-Alaikum;

    dear friends,
    Please Compare Corolla XE vs Baleno 1.3

    My thinking is :
    engine performance wise I know Baleno is better because it has efi engine and more power ,
    but people say corolla has better road grip and more luxury
    and it has also good resale , but XE lacks power if AC is ON
    (with CNG) as compared to Baleno.

    What about yours ?

    Now a days I am thinking to change my car ,I have also other options I know well about them BUT I dont have any idea about these two vehicles.

    So I am waiting for your valueable suggestions

    THANKS in advance.
    USMAN.......... M 5, Power,Luxury & Style , A truly drivers Car!!!..........

    i have driven both cars and personally i like baleno. there is no luxury in both of them but baleno is even better in this soo called luxury as it has power windows which r not there in XE. XE might be better in road grip but i dont think it matters. i like the drive of baleno over XE . XE suxx in acceleration .....

    dont know if i am wrong but baleno interior has less space compared to xe,, (90's shape corolla ae -101) i sat in friend's baleno 1.6l gti and it was comparatively smaller

    both XE and Baleno have inferior quality plastics/dash. Corolla quality being slightly better. XE is definetly more spacious inside and the boot is bigger

    About XE engine, that is orginally engine for Toyota Starlet in other countries back in 80's. As Pak market wanted a cheaper model of corolla without efi 1.6l complications it servered well to install a 1.3l carburator engine.
    I think corolla being a choices of masses had many diffirent models available to cater most. Only in South America, and Pakistan and maybe some more far and few countries had choice to buy 1.3l corolla in which this particular engine was instaled and chassis was known as ee-100 as engine mounts were relocated in engine bay to accomodate this 1.3l engine.
    All rest 1.5l and 1.6l versions were known as ae-101 or ae-102,, rare four wheel drive models in some countries were known as ae-103.

    So keeping in mind XE model fills up basic needs for corolla one should not expect powerful acceleration from it because techinically XE, GL, XE-G models are bit heavier for its engine..

    I hope above clears the XE concept.

    I have corolla 97 XE 1.6 EFI engine , automatic , JDM very happy with the car. Good road grip, comfortable drive, best for long drive. The only disadvantage is weak acceleration which is (i think) due to auto transmission.
