I am searching for Toyota corolla 2002-2006 Gli or Se Saloon my budget is 10 lakhs. I am getting isb number gli 2004 model golden colour 125k km driven for 950 final and se saloon 2004 model manual 98k driven for 9.80 final. Both cars have minor touchings only otherwise all fit body wise and mechanically. I was driving mehran so decided to shift to better car. What car should i buy considering good ac performance better comfort and better fuel consumption. I had civic 2003 vti as in option but heard that it has very low resale and is gas guzzler my cousin has 05 vti but it hardly gives 8-9kmp/l even its manual. Advice of toyota users and members are required as i am going to finalize in a day or two as i have taken biana for my mehran i have sold it so i want to buy the car urgent.
Shah g both cars are good gli has slightly better fuel consumption then se saloon. AC of both cars are good. Performance wise both are good in their category. Resale wise gli has edge over se saloon. Power wise se saloon has edge over gli. But do check the brakes brakes of these models are too bad, my mamu had xli and his car twice got hit at motorway becuz of bad brakes. For how much did you sale your mehran?
Personally, buying a 10 year old car does not make sense.
Why dont you look for other options; like Suzuki Swift I think you will be able to get 2011~2012 low milage cars. And that you have peace of mind for next few years.
Fuel Economy and resale = GliPower + Good Ac Performance = Se Saloon
Thanks for your input gujjar sb, i took a drive of se saloon and felt it very smooth and comfortable and ac is also good. Owner tells that car is giving around 11-12kmp/l local. I am more inclined towards se saloon but lets see which deal gets finalized. I sold mehran for 495 vxr 2006 ac/cng.
brother corolla is sedan i know swift is inn these days but it isn't comparable to these cars.
If you feel it better then go for it. Parts of gli xli engine are easily available dont know about it, its 3zz-fe.
Dear i have got SE Saloon. Its drive is excellent. XLI and GLI are little underpowered. U will definately feel difference in driving se saloon and xli/gli. And there is not a big difference in fuel consumption. Rest it is ur choice
Dont buy se saloon it requires to replace its valves after 15 to 20k km
