My question here is simple. I'm looking for a sedan for my family. Now I have considered Honda city for a while and though its cheaper and good on fuel. I wanted something bigger and tougher. Nothing better for the roads of Pakistan than a corolla.
Now drop city out or dont focus completely on that maybe.
I looked at GLi manual at first and it totals to about 1.9 million including registration etc(Non-filer) and then I came across altis 1.6 that totals to around 2.2 million
What would you folks recommend?
Now what I already know is as follows:
GLi has that old engine from the previous generation as Pakistan is the only country still producing 1.3 corollas. thats a downside
the power-weight ratio as told by some people makes fuel consumption and immediate pickup a little bit of a down side.
but its 3 lacs cheaper.
Altis 1.6 on the other hand:
Automatic transmission, slightly better or similar consumption as manual GLi(so I'm told)
better pick up due to bigger engine and better horsepower.
WHAT do you guys think?
is altis 1.6 worth the additional 3 lacs? is there actually that big a difference? I plan on keeping the car for some 10 years. which one would be a better choice?
What should I buy for reasons such as peace of mind, fuel consumption, add ons, power(pick up), comfort and any features that you may want to mention.
again.. IS ALTIS 1.6 worth the additional 3 lacs?
I'd request @autophile to shed some light on that. Your Altis is a dream of a car
