    Default New Shape Prius or Altis Grande?

    AoA brothers, I have sold my previous ride, which was Toyota Fielder. Now its time for an upgrade. I am really really confused between these two. I have a budget of 2.5 million.

    Prius has better mileage, better build quality, more features etc.
    Grande is new, has paddle shifters, has better resale etc

    I have no idea, which one has better drive and is more comfortable.

    As far as the condition of Prius is concerned, it will be my self-import 4.5 grade vehicle with 20-25k on odo meter. So those problems associated with used JDMS are out of the question. It will be like a zero meter vehicle.

    Please help me out on this one

    P.S No 9th Gen civic because I own one

    I am not worried about the used factor. I have bought JDM before and they smell and feel like a new car. Rest I agree new is indeed new.
    haha well I am car enthusiast so just want the ride which is perfect for me. I already have a second gen Prius so thats why I comment more often on a Prius forum
    Anyways thank you. Grande too is on my list, will visit any near by showroom and inspect it myself.

    prius is faster, better built, more economical, technologically advanced, bit exclusive, more satisfying machine. If you can get a clean one go for it. look for pearl white with panoramic roof option you will love it surely.

    Altis is not a bad option, but its an option for masses. its not bad either. but as a car its not where prius is for sure.

    How much do you travel in a week? If under 600km, you'll hardly save 1000 rs with a prius.

    Besides whats the fun in NOT flooring a car? Prius is meant for people who have to drive a lot and are habitual travellers. Its useful in that sense. Moreover, unless its a solar roof model, its nearly useless in summers due to ac use. Fuel economy gets effed up anyways more or less.

    If you want corolla then go for 1.3 auto, why 1.8, both has same exterior except some minor changes in grill and headlights. Buy 1.3 auto and install body kit and rims in it, and it will look like Altis.

    I dont travel this much. University to home onlu. Yes I loved to floor my fielder those revs looked awesome when in action.
    And Prius in summers doesn't go below 18 km/l with Ac on 24/7, it's regular batteries can run Ac too.
    How much average are you getting in city and highway?

    It's the power that matters, shaskay looks good only in pics.
    When I looked up "Ninjas" in Thesaurus.com, it said "Ninja's can't be found" Well played Ninjas, well played.

    I previously had a 1.5 engine ride. So 1.3 would be underpowered to me. Plus gli doesnt have airbags, retractable mirror, rims, fog lamps, premium finish etc.

    Its the CVT that matters. Cruise control matters. Newer engine matters. Better navigation matters.

    Well a guy I know was highly dissatisfied with prius in summers. Haven't owned one for long myself thiugh.

    And regarding your daily routine, I don't think prius is a good option for you.

    Yaar when I drive the car, it gives almost 13 kmpl in city and 16-18 on motorway. But my driver is a real **** and he floors it alot. I do floor it as well but not all the time. So mixed average I get is nearly 12-12.5 all in city. With little bit of ac mostly at noon when its unbearable in the car with Windows rolled up.

    Parts of prius are hell costly (take a look at market) nd incase of any (ALLAH apne hifz o aman me rakhay)accident or some thing all ur fuel savings will be gone nd prius dont enjoy great resale so buying altis seems more practical + nothing beats the drive nd freshness of new car .... Nd spending 2.5 million on imported used car ...hosla chaiay is k liay :p

    Bro test drive both the cars, as far as Altis is concerned, just the minor features and engine power is different rest it is the same as GLi. Even my family members prefer our 8 year old Lancer than the new GLi AT we have, which mostly stays parked.
    In Prius you get all automatic windows, climate control, Vehicle Stability Assist, in LED and onwards package HID projector headlamps along with headlamp washers, back wiper, a much high grade plastic used in interior and what not.
    When I was buying the Prius I had option of brand new Civic as well but I totally ignored that and went for Prius.

    Prius parts are getting cheaper, the side mirror which was for Rs. 25,000 last year is now for Rs. 15,000 that too the asking price, original tail lights if 3rd Gen which were around 50k for a pair are now for 30k, this being open to negotiation as well.
    As far as resale is concerned, the last 10 year trend says that Altis has pathetic resale and gives a great loss at the time of selling, 3 saal purani Altis aur GLi ki price mein zyada fark nahi hai although new cars mein the difference is a lot.
    Having owned both Prius and 11th Gen Corolla I can easily advise others to buy Prius.
    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.

    Bhai aisa kaun hai jo Prius se unsatisfied hai?
    The AC is outstanding, even in days of 40 degrees Celsius it cools the cabin like a fridge Alhamdulillah.
    I have Prius as my daily car since almost a year and I would not have enjoyed it this much than with any other PKDM.

    Yaar the guy said mileage drops in case of extensive ac use in summers esp when its parked with ac on.
