    Default Prius or Corolla? Confusion and doubts everywhere

    Guys after spending lots of time on the internet and asking people, I have reached a decision, and that is between the 2011 Toyota Prius or the Toyota Corolla Grande 1.8 CVT-i.

    The confusion is occurring because the features and mileage of the Prius attract me, while the looks and interior of the Corolla attract me. Please keep in mind of resale, maintenance and fuel economy.

    Have 2 prius' at home MashaAllah se, Very much satisfied with em.
    Have little experience with the new Rolla, but my dad drives a 1.6 Altis in Islo whenever he goes for his business trips, and in his opinion, Prius is a class apart

    Better then corolla(you pay 1.8 -1.9 million for car in which you dont have safety,no air bag,main difference 1300 -1800,booking for 1 - 2 months,there are many other differences which you cant compare with civic And corolla)

    if i opt for prius then prius is used car which is big negative point for me as i am paying more then 2 million for the car and still i dont get warranty.

    Guys I've heard that to get a new Corolla, you need to pay an extra 3 lakhs to get your car quickly, otherwise it will take months to deliver. Is it true?

    So the people who drive Corolla on the streets have either paid 3 lakhs or have made their order about 3-4 months before?

    LoL @ low response. I smell something . Only 1.8 hardtop manual is available in 45 days. Rest all variants have queue of four months. In other words IMC Corolla is sold out in advance for next four months.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Thats the case in islamabad only. Situation has changed a lot. As usual Altis Grande will start loosing its market value and Gli will dominate the market.
    Grande CVTI booking time is now less than a Gli M/T, A/T.
    You can get a grande cvti in less than 1 month from southern punjab and sindh dealerships easily and 1-1.5 month from upper punjab including rawalpindi. Whereas Gli Auto is ruling the market. Booking time of Gli Auto is May/June.

    cars are not built like a computer game, meaning you cannot go to a mercedes benz dealer and ask for the active body control suspension system to be installed in your corolla.

    similarly you cannot go to a toyota dealer and ask for "bhai iss corolla mein zara prius ka engine svap kardo"

    you are limited to what the production line can offer only for that car.

    A heating debate is going in my home as well, already own 2 JDMs but this time i am in favor of PKDM civic, while family in inclined towards prius, i am in favor of civic as it contains immobilizer which corolla doesn't offer. PRIUS is a used car with very expensive after market support, the only plus point is its mileage otherwise which if you think quantitatively the long term cost of prius will exceed the price of a normal PKDM car.
    When I looked up "Ninjas" in Thesaurus.com, it said "Ninja's can't be found" Well played Ninjas, well played.

    By saying installing the features of a Prius in a Corolla, I meant climate control and these type of basic stuff.

    Well if you're talking about immobilizer and stuff, I've heard that there's a device with which thieves can steal a car in 3 minutes. At first I was also going to buy a Prius because of the security reason, but after searching the internet I found out that this device really exists, then I changed my decision keeping in mind of resale and maintenance and may buy a Corolla.
