Janab I have mentioned this again...2ZR-FE is not new...it's a decade old engine that Toyota Indus did not give in 10th gen corolla.
R18 has no replacement in 1.8 category so it's still new where as 2ZR-FE has a replacement which is 2ZR-FAE and pity is that 11th gen corolla still doesn't have it.
And R18 doesn't need hi octane that is the requirement of 1.5 Turbo.
Bringing in engine debate is useless...both R18 and 2ZR are very good engines; powerful, reliable and fuel efficient.
