    Default Corolla GLI A/T & ALTIS Manual

    Fellows:

    Which is the best deal in long terms between GLI A/T and ALTIS Manual ? Both being 1.6 Dual VVTi differs majorly in transmission, accessories apart. Moreover, the price difference is negligible between the two.

    I have been driving Manual transmission since long, this time, given the above choices, I am rethinking to consider A/T transmission. But, given the price difference and the ALTIS brand, need your opnion on which way to go.

    Kindly suggest with major pros and cons of both choices focusing especially on Transmission, as that is affecting the decision.

    Thanks.

    with the current traffic conditions.. even m lookin for a auto tranny.. the floor shift is playing havoc with my knees :s
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    Brother , i would have gone for Altis for couple of reasons bcoz. Altis gives:
    Alloys
    Wood Panelling
    Better @ Din Audio Audio System
    Side Skirts
    Optrion Speedo Meter
    Top Corolla brand Name,
    Some more accessories in interior and exterior
    I think so but not sure rain sensor wipers

    Where as Gli Auto Just gives u Auto Gear, with same Xli type of exterior and interior.

    y have we made Altis a Brand? Its just a Corolla. And its Corolla Altis. weather its a 1.3/1.5/1.6/1.8/2.0/2.4 Its Corolla Altis.

    All of them share the same suspension, Body, Interior parts, with some cosmetic changes that are charged for.

    The Corolla Axio, Feilder might differ but what we get here is just pure Corolla Altis.
    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.

    Get Altis; it might save you some day due to driver side air bag. Atleast you will have peace of mind. Its pitty they are not giving passenger side air bag

    4 speed A/T vs 6 speed M/T; you will be able to save on ever rising petrol

    Spending so much; still getting third class black door handles; argh; thats the first thing one touches; sara impression further on khoo khattey chala jata hey

    From the two, ALTIS is what you should go for. ALTIS is by far packed with features, one expects in hefty price tag car. Manual is more fun, easy to maintain and will keep that sporty drive alive. Unfortunately, GLI A/T is just too expensive given its only 1.6 with A/T transmission.

    bhai aap auto gli purchase karein altis ke side skirts panel alloys deck sab market se mil jaye gen aur agar aap find kren ge tu original se bhi ache mil jaye gein lekin aap altis mein auto gear nahi laga sakte jo karachi ke liye buhat zarori hai

    altis sirf xli gli se achi hai kyun ke un mein 1300cc engine hai lekin gli auto aur altis mein same engine hai aur price bhi kam hai.

    Thanks, this is something really good that mere accessories are only difference in Altis and Gli At. IF all upgrades except airbag is available off market, then its a good saving.

    Thanks all. Will be visiting showroom this week and get to know if the upgrades in Altis available economically for GLI A/T. Don't need all the Altis features off-market but, surely the wood panel, optitron meter, fog lamps and side skirts.

    Anyone here with an idea if these essential upgrades possible off-market and cost estimate ?

    look go for gli auto becuz all of its variants are sedan soo its a family car whether u buy a xli or altis same no problem at all there is no significant difference becuz all these things for example the audio system,sunroof,not use full so go for the gli auto it will be the same things and as far as air bags u cant rely on pakistani cars they all r same it will be a cost beneficial for u and secondly the altis has lesser resale than gli.i am talking about 1.6...best luck
