    Default Toyota-Indus Corolla 2008 - Official Thread

    Due to the increasing no. of Corolla 2008 threads, the administration of PakWheels.Com has decided to make a dedicated thread for the Toyota-Indus Corolla 2008. The thread will remain sticky in the 'Wheels in Pakistan' forum till the first week of official launching.

    PakWheels.Com is not a biased medium which serves to boost the popularity of one particular product, however due to the uneducated behavior demonstrated by certain members acting as brand ambassadors the administration is left with no choice but to take this step.


    48-hours ban will be given to those members who will start a fight on the comparison of the car with any other car.

    Any further threads started about the Toyota-Indus Corolla 2008 will result in immediate closure and a possible ban for the offender.

    If you want to post anything regarding the car post it in this thread be it spotting, price information, specifications, comparisions, pictures, etc.

    @Cylestyne:

    Yep. An advantage of Torsion beam is that mechanically, it doesn't require wheel alignment for the entire life cycle of the car. Then, there is the cost/weight/space factor. But, it all ends down to personal preference.

    Secondly, the older TypeR in UK which "had" independent suspension is actually, quicker around corners than new one (Source: TG Lap times). New Euro Civic's styling exactly matches the crowd that buys this car there.

    @fahadmiester:

    the front discs are ventilated,which means no skidding even for non-abs models
    Even old Corolla's discs were ventilated. Even Santro's front discs are ventilated. Its been 8-10 years now since all C-seg. cars are coming with ventilated discs.

    AND, skidding has almost nothing to do with ventilated discs. Skidding occurs due to a large brake booster and absence of ABS.

    @ALL:

    What you guys DO NOT realize (read all your posts) is that Cruise Control is NOT the only thing that sets this Corolla apart from Civic. The Sequential Manual (perhaps above your comprehension here) is above CR. If anyone has driven a car with SMG in Manual/Sports mode then he'll know what i'm talking here about.

    There ARE small goodies/niceties on this model but on the whole, I'd skip this generation of Corolla/Civic and place my money on next gen Corolla/Civic, Mark II Grande, CL7/9, Mark X 2.5 or even 2008 Mitsu Lancer!

    2.0 Common Rail D4-D is a dream in Pakistan which will never come true due to the presence of the Holy Diesel we have here. *sighs*

    corolla sales will not step down as ppl affording prados and cruisers will now buy it

    Those people represent a very small percentage of the market.
    Sales will definitely be affected.

    Most of the buyers are people like you and me (unless you are loaded :p). Price of the car has been increased by 3-4lak and on top of that fuel is really expensive.
    Then the price of everyday items(groceries etc) has increased. In times like this i think most people would want to spend as little as possible, especially on unnecessary things.

    Then also think how much have salaries increased (if at all)?

    @doc:

    I was not being specific about anyone.

    Anyway, almost everyone here is arguing over and going along the lines of "oh only cruise control is extra and look at the price".

    However, having driven the previous Altis Automatic with Super ECT-i (which this one also has) in Power mode does seem to make a big difference on driving and power/gearbox kickdown response, albeit at the expense of economy.

    Technically, its the SMG transmission first that "generally" people should be talking about only if they "know" about it. Cruise Control, leather, etc are secondary features.

    At the end even i'm enlightened to see people talking about "oh its plain old engine from previous altis (showing how techy they are)" and yet cannot see the difference in transmission "considering" it costs substantially more to manufacture an SMG tranny, but INDUS being INDUS, they've provided 4 gears rather than 5 to cut costs here.

    You can't say Cruise Control a secondary feature; the car is named after it ALTIS CRUISETRONIC.
    Well its not a civic vs corolla argument, the point is the PRICE of both the cars. I mean, its hard nowadays for people especially the middle class to buy cars at such a high price. This car in US with some "more extra" features costs approx: $16000 (Rs:1184000).

    @ djrock900:

    Forgive me but if one starts following and tends to get on with the "naming" convention when buying local cars, then theres no tomorrow. What good does the word "Prosmatec" define a standard automatic transmission with standard Grade Logic Control (which all now have these days) ?

    Slacky, techy, geeky, words are used by the industry to grab unwilling customers to give themselves in. To indus, it might not be a secondly feature. But then i'm not talking from the perspective from IMC in the first place.

    However, I DO AGREE, that if they (IMC) would've used Corolla SMG, then it would've been a BMW rip-off :d:p

    One can't compare the prices of Corolla worldwide to the local one. Ever bother how ever-increasing dollar effects the local prices of industry and its commodities. You can get a nicely spec'ed BMW 3-Series in UK in the price of relatively (pathetic to BMW) Camry/Accord here.

    Relax dude, were all friends here.
    Just saying that you did sound a bit condescending.

    The transmission may cost more to manufacture but the fact of the matter is that things like cruise control will only add to the cost of the car.

    Finally, the 'ICON' is here, Xli for rs 12lac and gli for 13.2 lac is too much, they must be 1 lac cheaper.

    agreed... yaar there are much more features as compared to civic. civic used to give leather package as UG and now it doesnt. lolz at UG too if cruisetonic is funny. plus ALTIS M/T is equipped with airbag while VTI is not. And there is not too much diff in vti oriel and vti except airbags, sound system and a couple of things.

    @all
    comeon guys.. u ppl always complain abt the lesser amount of features offered by the local manufacturers and now u ppl r not appreciating the cruise control which is a total new thing in our local car industry. and now u ppl say that it shud offer parking sensors, climate control etc. i know its a bit overpriced but even then...
    abt the increase in price its good bcz now the paindus who didnt even had driven a mehran before bought xli in 9 lacs and thought that they are the king of the roads wud b disappointed.. and comeon look at the prices of city and cultus...

    i have one query.. in the specification page it is written that SR is equipped with alloys with CTR ornament... wats that??

    sorry if anybody didnt like my comments!
