First of all good decision to move to Grande. If one has budget why not? Go for the top of line and you get all those goodies. I still wish I had budget and did not have some pending projects, would have gone for it.
Secondly now do not think about 1.6, however it does not have + - modes because it is not a CVti and same 4-speed AT Super ECT from previous generation GLi 1.6 AT/Altis
It take same effort to clean any car and with a little bit detailing one gets more rewarding results on a black car
