I want to buy one of the two:
(1) 1.8 Altis A/T CVTi; OR
(2) 1.8 Altis Grande A/T CVTi
Which one should I buy?
Initially, I decided to buy (1) because I don't care for any of the main features of Grande (2) namely, sunroof, rain sensor, extra interior lights, cruise control, leatherite seats etc. and I can do without pedal shifters and steering audio controls.
It lacks the only feature that would've convinced me to buy it: Auto climate control
BUT, I've been told by friends that its a bad idea to buy (1) because it will have a lot less resale value than (2) and that I better pay the extra 200k on (2) 'cause i'll lose less money on it when selling. Is it true?
I'd appreciate any advice and opinions on this. Please give pros and cons of each considering my preferences. Are there any other important differences between the two that I don't know of?
