    Default please explain Corolla Switchtronic

    Hello friends:

    New corolla has Switchtronic gear shift.
    Can someone tell what that means? Is it only a feature in automatic transmission or also in manual transmission car.

    it's an auto which can be manually shifted, but i think you are talking about the cruiswe control: cruise tronic

    if ure asking about switch tronic

    then thats a simple Trip-tronic, which has a + & - to shift gears up and down as requried. with the normal Auto transmission

    But if its Cruise control, well thats to control the cruise automaticaly, u take the car to the desired speed, apply the cruise tronic and ur car remains constant at that speed no need to keep ur foot on the accelerator
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Hi all:
    The new corolla ad mentions switchtronic and cruise control as separate features. I dont really know the difference between switchtronic and cruisetronic. Is it really a big thing? or as UsmanAnsari mentioned, is it something like Disctronic :p

    please explain Corolla Switchtronic -906639

    so many things being added on these cars and still they can't offer ABS and at least 2 airbags as standard....:@

    why are we (as a nation) obsessed with "Shushkas" instead of safety???????

    The corolla Altis has ABS + EBD. It also has Brake Assist (BA). I beleive that technology was introduced by mercedes benz and in a panic brake situation, the vehicle automatically applies braking pressure for maximum deceleration. Of course the ABS and EBD ensure that the wheels grip and brake in the right manner.

    But only driver's side airbag I think!

    The way you've phrased that really makes it seem as if there are dozens of 1.8l cars in production in Pakistan.

    Switchtronic means it has Automatic transmission which can be switched to manual transmission. It has convertable transmission.
