    Default Corolla Auto

    Hi folks,

    I just came back from the showroom today and am much confused as what would be a wise decision to select.

    I am looking for A/T - below are the variants offered:

    1.6 GLI Automatic -
    1.6 Altis Automatic - Price difference from above 160,000
    1.6 Altis Automatic with Sunroof - Price difference from above 90,000 and 250,000 from 1.6 Gli

    Engine in all these variants are same, but the value proposition is changed with each..

    Suggestion?: is 160,00 worth the value of features added in Altis (keyless entry, Fog Lamps, Side Skirts, Alloy Rims, 4 spoke steering, Cruisetronic, matching mud flaps and retractable mirrors)?

    please suggest..

    Regards,
    Imran

    PS: they guy mentioned that Navigation system is coming in all Altis - its not written in the spec sheet, anyone can confirm here?

    don't go for a corolla, it's a HOT target for thieves
    buy city instead
    8th Gen Mitsubishi Lancer 1.3 GLX 2006; 3rd Gen Toyota Prius 1.8 S-Touring 2010; 11th Gen Toyota Corolla 1.3 GLi AT 2014.

    I went from a honda city A/T to a GLi 1.6 A/T and I'm pretty happy with it. I would recommend to go for any variant of Corolla instead of a city.

    if u r looking for auto tranny,y dont u go for JDM Axio or corolla X..which have way better build quality and specs..
    moreover after sometime there wont b resale issue for them too,as they are flooding our market..

    high resale is useless when thieves will keep their eyes on it + r u buying for selling or for using?

    *Side skirts
    *Alloy rimZ
    *4 spoke steering
    *Cruisetronic
    *keyLess entry
    *retractable mirrors
    *matching mirrors, handles
    *wooden interior
    *Optiron meter
    *Airbags
    *Navigation
    *better resale (than GLI 1.6)
    *plus "ALTIS" batch

    and this all worths 180,000 +....so my suggestion will be to go for ALTIS

    @Ali_Mujtba You cant compare brand new with these reconditioned. i know their build is better and they will penetrate in the market soon with good resale but i dont have a good experience with them.

    @chaudhary9 its the part of game bro.. your life is also at risk in Karachi every minute.. inshAllah kuch nai hoga

    @NOneed2speedd waiting period on Altis is hell 2 months these days.. whereas 1.6 is ready on control. i am thinking to modify it and add some features of Altis.. thats the only option left..

    You also get the navigation with Altis

    Major features
    Alloys
    Navigation
    Steering/Optiron meter
    Wooden Paneling
    SideSkirts/Moudlings/Matching door handles and mudflaps.
    Chorme strips.
    Retractable mirrors
    Fog lights, With switch on headlight Assembly
    Keyless Entry.

    All in all its worth the 160k
    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.

    If you have budget go for Altis Auto, you will never regret paying extra for the goodies Altis has
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
