I am planning to buy a car for family use and it will be mostly driven by our DRIVER.
I have my mind on the 11th gen Corolla Gli or Xli.
Although Honda City is a better buy but I already had a 2009 Honda City which I sold in 2013 so family doesn't want the same car.
I need your expert opinions and suggestions about going for 11th gen Xli or Gli.
Here are some things I need some help with:
-Difference between price of both car is about PKR 124K (1625K vs 1749K). Negative for Gli
-The most significant difference that matters is that Gli has 'ABS with EBD' (although getting genuine Power Windows, central locking and back armrest are a welcomed thing; aftermarket items fail after a few months). Positive for Gli
- Will be buying the 'White' colour option, so Gli doesn't score any points for having more colours available. Negative for Gli
Do you think that the increase in price is justified for the Gli or should I simply go for the Xli?
I would appreciate an honest and quick reply since I want to book it as soon as possible (because of the delivery time).
Edit: (13th May 2015)
After getting some very valid suggestion from all of my pakwheel brothers, I have updated the main post with the following:
I am now also considering JDMs in the same budget (1300K to 1600k).
After browsing Pakwheels used car ads, I think Corolla Axio (or any car with a trunk in good condition), 10th gen Corolla (Gli's /even 2010 Altis) would be a better purchase. Can some suggest (that JDM or used PKDM) is the better option?
