    Default Advise needed choosing Corolla trim

    AOA

    I have to buy Toyota Corolla 1.3l within few days.
    So, I have queries related to it.
    i) which trim to go for, either Xli or Gli ? I don't need power windows & central locking, 2 additional speakers.The only key difference is ABS but for that I have to pay 150k more.
    ii) is the ecotec version still available ? if yes, should i go for it or not?
    iii)what is the time period of car delivery these days?
    iv) Which colors are available in Xli? is there any metallic one? In my opinion, white & black colors are easy to maintain & cost effective with touchups etc . Please give me your suggestion.

    Looking forward for your valuable feedback.

    if you want to go for PKDM then GLi if budget is not an issue, otherwise XLi. XLi is available in metallic colours as well, like silver, golden (flaxen mica) etc.

    Brother I would recommend civic 2007-2008 then buying new Corolla xli or gli. there r several reasons for it which are;

    1. Corolla and City, 2008-20012 are very light car having very less road grip. plus city and Corolla 2008-2012 has no anti-theft (immobilizer) system in it where as civic has. U will be care free after buying civic. i am suggesting u coz recently i have seen 3 cases of steeling brand new Corollas and city outside the homes. even Liana is better then city and corolla in terms of security system.

    2. There is not much difference of economy between Xli, GLi and civic. i.e XLI, GLI gives 13 to 14 km/liter in city, where as civic manual transmission gives 11-12km/liter in city. so there is not much difference in economy if u compare the class of cars.

    3 . Corolla ecotec version is discontinued coz Govt. has imposed ban on importing new cng cylinders. even then the cng in new cars are not suitable for the health of engines, and on the other hand cng is going to be end by the next year coz of gas shortage. so don't waste RS.1 lac worth kit. u won't fill the petrol of that money in 2 to 3 years.


    Go all the way for Civic if u want the real value of ur money and peace of mind.

    Don't go for any of them, It's a theft-prone car. Just buy a brand new City instead.

    The theft happens after 10 or 11 hrs after being delivered from the showroom.

    I spoke to a Toyota Rep couple of days back, immediate delivery on cash or if you want that 250,000 Rs booking rest on delivery thing then you are gonna need to wait till the end of September. Go for GLI in 150,000 Rs you are not only getting ABS but also the things that you don't need as you mentioned but trust me if you buy an XLI without all of those things that you mentioned you didn't want you are gonna regret that big time....

    City is the same case as of Corollas. Coz city also no Immobilzor in it so it can easly be stolen in 5 mints.

    thanx all for your replies.
    I m limited to only new corolla xli or gli.
    I think I should go for Gli.
    Plus i ll be buying it through bank leasing, so it will come insured, atleast no worries of theft.

    @ROBM... am hearing for the first time that metallic colors are available in XLI, please confrim


    @Air-explorer... Corolla is prone to theft, thats a fact, and if you are getting it insured then i suggest to go for TAKAFULL, but even if takaful/insurance, if you car gets stolen and is not recovered in the first year, still you lose atleast 2.0 lakh (registration + other tit bit expenses u do on ur car + depreciation of first year)

    So, best is to recit Ayat Al Qursi and also install some devices.. Although i too am fan of COROLLA for few reasons, but i think that CIVIC should now be the choice as it has immobiliser

    No problem. Its even available in red wine. Indus motors has produced cars far beyond their sales and have now decided to shut down production until their stocks clear up. and the fastest way to clear them up is to convert Altis, GLi etc to the base trim, the hot cake XLi.

    Used Toyota Corolla 2012 Car for sale in Karachi - 404757 | Pakwheels

    Used Toyota Corolla 2010 Car for sale in Karachi - 460741 | Pakwheels

    Used Toyota Corolla 2012 Car for sale in Karachi - 451524 | Pakwheels

    Used Toyota Corolla 2011 Car for sale in Lahore - 457503 | Pakwheels

    Used Toyota Corolla 2011 Car for sale in Lahore - 456312 | Pakwheels

    The last one is a particularly wonderful color, I love it. and besides, a few of the ads are of pre facelift model, just to show you that Xli has been available in these colors whenever indus needed to clear up stocks. No big deal.
