Took test drive in My friends Altis.
It was Altis MT without SR
Performance:It has more or less same pick as 1.8 one.Engine is more refined,quiet,responsive and has less power lag in lower gears.6 speed MT kicks on highway.Brakes are also fine with fine road grip.If you are standing outside next to the car you cant tell that engine is started because of very low noise.
Economy:Its giving him 11.8 km/l in Sargodha City.Havent checked on highway.
Things i liked : The instrument cluster i just loved it with the white colour , Premium wooden panels , Leather seats are very soft and of good quality.
Price:It has nice edge over its competitors in price.
Verdict : I am sold over it.Thinking to sell my GLI and buy manual altis.Its now all in one package.
