    New civic is way more comfy and smoother than previous gen civic. Both cars are good and have pros and cons. Overall build quality and interior of civic is a lot better.

    Both are good. But one thing keep in mind. Corolla is the most stolen car in Pakistan.

    Aoa,

    If you have not driven an Altis, then you buy Grande.

    Otherwise go for Civic.

    Shapewise new Corolla is 100 times better than Civic's current shape.

    obviously go for Altis, Civic is too mainstream now with poor interior space and blind spots as a factory feature from last decade or so

    As said before,
    Civic is Civic.

    For Grande, even after paying a friggin 2.4M what we get is a single airbag and no immobilizer. We don't need paddle shifters, do we? Be kind to your self and your wallet. God forbids, would you have the money to buy a new car after your 2.4M go to drain. Even though Civic is still way behind International standards but better than Grande.

    Sorry I disagree. Civic's projector lights, passenger side airbags, climate control, Immobilizer and better interior quality are far more practical and better value for money in the enviroment of Pakistan. Grande has the 7 speed cvt-i tranny and paddle shifters but for me personally it doesn't attract me. How often am I going to use the paddle shifters? I have used GLi 1.6 and Altis 1.6 10th gen and there is nowhere in Islamabad where I have parked with peace of mind and believe me I am sick of it. Anyways pw is for healthy discussions. I have explained my point of view, I in no way intend to offend you Peace.

    Bro i doubt atlas will be introducing the new facelift, that too before the end of 2015 as they have just introduced the new nav and key etc. If they were to introduce the facleift they would have released it with the new nav and key. But then again as stated by the other Pakwheelers they may be feeling the heat of the new corolla.

    For all those praising the Altis for having paddle shifters, they are useless and offer absolutely no driving pleasure. same is the case with the CR-Z. Whats the point of locking a cvt tranny in a certain ratio for a few seconds and then changing the ratio just to let the rpm fall and rise back without feeling the torque of the engine. In my personal opinion, i think its for geeks.

    Coming to the drive of the Altis (which is more important for car enthusiasts), high ride height, torsion beam rear suspension and that bulky body destroy the driving pleasure (if any) completely. you get body roll, the rear end tends to slip and that feather light eps gives you no road feedback whatsoever. Dont get offended toyota fanboys, its the reality. Corolla since 2002 hasnt offered any driving pleasure in any of its variants.

    As for the civic, i hate the fact that honda discontinued the hydraulic power steering. You dont feel that involved while driving it but still it offers some road feedback. you do feel youre in control (a bit) of the car. The drive is no way near the drive of the 8th gen.

    My suggestion for Mr. Khan would be to buy a car which you like because at the end of the day its you whose gonna be using it. not me, not anyone from PW. Best of Luck with your purchase, do share some pics.

    PS. for all those honda and toyota fans who are imposing themselves on the thread starter, he asked for your suggestion, he didnt ask for you to breath down his neck and buy the car that you like so just suggest. Peace

    for those who say corolla is way ahead in tech and newer engine, just because you get something late doesn't make it new. Honda's R Engine was introduced in 2006, Toyota's ZR in 2007, so there's not much difference. And for those who may concern about biases, yes I prefer the current civic to corolla but am more of a Toyota fan than Honda.

    More or less agreed with what @hondaFanatic has said. But with this variant of altis, Grande, you might get smoother driving experience due to CVT tranny coupled with Corolla's famous softer suspensions. The Grande is all the more spacious as well as compared to civic. With its increased wheelbase it offers ample rear legroom/headroom and those reclining seats might make it tad more comfortable for longer journeys.

    On the other hand with Civic, for me one gets a complete package with its Immobilizer, Dual Airbags, and Auto Climate Control which the IMC fails to deliver with the Grande. With Civic top of the line model you might also get better Resale Value, if thats a concern for you.

    But again in the end just like 'hondaFanatic' said the choice is all yours to make since you'll be the one driving it. We are just trying to help you make a better informed decision. :-)

    not sure about the toyota but the 9th gen civic's R18 is relatively new with improvements in fuel economy and overall smoothness so you can say it was introduced in 2011 with the 9th gen.
