After a long heated debate, I've finally decided to go with the Altis 1.6 Auto. Now I'm faced with the ultimate question. What color should I go with. I had 4 options, but decided to eliminate black because of the hot weather since it tends to soak up a lot of heat and shows a lot of dust.So here I am, left with three options. (options are alphabetically ordered. Nothing to do with preference)1. Gun Metallic2. Medium Silver3. Super White (Only concern is whether it will get pale over time)
Since I can't examine these cars side by side, You're input would be extremely valuable. (Please suggest a good insurance company. Heard that trackers mess up the dashboard. So want to avoid them.)
Bro, go for Bronze Mica or Super White.
Because, these two colors are only available in Atlis. Rest every color available in Gli etc.
In your options, i would go for Super White.

Super white and medium silver looks best in new corolla. Bronze is no doubt another great color by Toyota but only get it if you can maintain the looks of that color. I would prefer Super white from your list.
go for super white or bronze mica
Thanks for your input. It's helping me narrow down to the final choice. Need some more replies to establish a trend.
Gun Metallic looks good
I would suggest Super white as it is relatively easy to maintain.
Super white for exclusivity, in regular , go for medium silver

Get it in Super white, its easy to maintain. If you get it scratched, local painters can easily match the color (usually). White is the most reflective and least absorbent of all the other colors, it reflects the most heat and sunlight keeping the car cool (simple physics). The temperature difference will be of almost 3 degrees, compared to silver or grey. I have two black cars, both take a lot of effort to keep clean. Silver is also a good choice but the temperature difference will be of almost 2-3 degrees in the sun compared to super white.
Going to visit Toyota Walton Tomorrow. Heard they have all of the suggested colors on display. Should be able to make my final decision. If everything goes well, gonna book the car right away. Insha Allah!
Bronze mica or gun metallic

Medium Silver, because Toyota's super white is not much whiter than its off white sibling. Silver is also a good heat reflector, besides dust marks left by rain are not so visible on silver but on white the loobk very bad.
In which city you are. I have very good experience with Askari General Insurance (AGI), it's a subsidiary of Army Welfare Trust.
Black color at first but no doubt its difficult to maintain so SUPER WHITE color at second. Yup i agree it get pale over time but proper washing/polishing is usually recommended by every car manufacturer for the durability of your car color and shine. So go for super white.
Bronze mica is a class apart in Altis
Okay I was faced with the same dliema. I was about to book a GLi A/T and I narrowed my search down a bit1) Black .. it looks the best by far .. but its hard to maintain so that was a no for me2) white.. I would have loved to get super white but its not available in Gli .. but 1 thing about super white/white is that every person has this color on his Altis/Grande.. its so common its like a taxi ( no offence to super white owners, just my opinion:P ) 3)Silver .. as I Already have 2 cars in my garage which are silver this was a no go for me4) medium silver.. my previous Gli was medium silver so no intention to get this color again .5) Gun mettalic .. now This is the color I got .. its between silver and black easier to maintain as compared to black.... Plus yi colour rulla nai hua like black/white/superwhite ... every person has those colours.
In the end the color you chose is the one you feel appealing to your eyes.. no matter what any one says you will be driving that car, better choose something which brings a smile to your face when you see your car ..Just my 2 cents ....Good Luck:)
Thanks for the tips about the color. You seem to have great experience with car maintenance. Beautiful ride you have there, by the way.
I am living in Lahore. How much does Askari charge for insurance? Are there any benefits for army people?
Genuinely valid points that you've expressed. Like you said, the color should appealing the owner too.I'll be visiting the showroom today to checkout the colors. Hope to get the best Insha Allah.
Bronze Mica and Super White seem to be the most popular ones here. I'll surely examine the bronze mica more thoughtfully, considering I haven't seen one on the roads yet. I'd prefer the color that allows the vehicle more presence on the road.
