Its 1.6 quad core I think with 1Gb ram, can easily run custom 4.4.4 rom or at least 4.4.2. It doesn't matter anyways, what matters is its the only car in the market with an android unit right now. Yes civic, it costs 70k on top of invoice and the unit is an ultra super piece of crap.
Regarding the drive, axio has a primitive 10th Gen corolla drive, seems like that to me. Altis handles way ahead of axio at higher speeds and corners. Brakes you checked on eurostars, ask ur friend to get yokos or continentals.
