Since we're got automotive engineers here, lets put get the facts straight
First of all: iSDI is much more efficient than VVTi, VTEC, iVTEC or any other consumer class Automotive engine. It’s efficiency almost matches to the direct injection diesel engines’ & it does not waste any of the fuel.
Can you refer any site for this info for verification purposes or do you simply want us to take yer word for it ?
Steermatic is CVT with virtual 7 speed computer controlled transmission. You cannot compare it with Automatic Torque converter in Altis. I’ve mentioned dozens of logical & technical reasons to answer ‘WHY’, many times in other topics.
Dude it's not 7 speed it's 7 speed MODES. It's got 7 speed MODES like Altis auto has 2 Speed MODES !
Look man! I’m afraid: it’s me who’s playing logically. You are the one to mention personal experience. Please be gentle with me – watch your words & comments again; about others & about yourself too.
Do you think I simply logon & write whatever I think? Have you ever read my reply before? I, NO WHERE IN THE FORUM REPLIED WITHOUT TECHNOLOGIC FACTOR & LOGICAL ARGUE.
First of all whatever i said wasn't directed at you and if you DID feel offended well that wasn't my intention. What i'm trying to say and have been saying in this post since te beginning is people need to stop posting things such as that engine is better than this engine. I'm just plain stating facts about what the altis has and what the city lacks or has.
Do you think Steermatic feature is just a useless toy? It’s a computer controlled CVT system. CVT is not only lighter than conventional torque converter but also offers unlimited gear ratios & unlimited speeds. It take fraction of a second to change speeds & keeps power band much more higher than the other trannies. It’s the F1 types technology, used in higher end cars only. It’s the future of transmission. You might be able to enjoy it in Corolla after a decade.
Have you actually read me saying anything wrong about steermatic ? I personaly think it's a great feature. But stating that since city has steermatic it's alot better than Altis is going WAY overboard with ye emotions ! My friend u4usman4u was putting up the steermatic function as a TOY which i was trying to inform him won't be considered as a TOY while buying a brand new car ! I don't think anyone who's going to buy a car with his hard earned cash is going to buy a city just for the sake of steermatic. The 1.5 city is a great car in it 's price range period. There's nothing wrong with it. But it has NO comparison whatsoever with the Altis (so my point being this post had no solid base for a discussion)
shani bro: i know i know U will disagree with everything uiv posted like u have been doing with other bros.
All in ye head buddy !
I just specify the missing features in a well build CAR which should be present at that class.
I Strongly agree the altis lacks the sun roof and the retracting mech for side mirrors. Still just look at ye post and the topic you started......
Whats so special about 1.8 VVti ALTIS AUTOMATIC???
Prove this statement.
I don't see any mention of the lack of features. IF the car lacks the sun roof it doesn't mean it's not worth buying. It's good value for money and cars WITHOUT sun roofs are still being sold. Just for comparison's sake check out the price of the new civic 2006 Oriel..
VTi Oriel - Manual Transmission Rs: 1,459,000.00
They're charging that much for a car with 1.8 L and a sun roof ? that's high way robbery. Judge a car with it's price and the features it HAS not the ones it lacks. Don't expect to buy a mehran with ABS. It's got the features that they're charging for. The corolla brand SHOULD have a sun roof option but it's lacking.. STILL it doesn't mean the altis isn't good value for money. That's simply a wrong way of judging the value for money of a car.
[highlight]Actually u didn't get that this STATEMENT is heading towards the DIRECT RIVALS of COROLLA.
if u can PROVE it then go a head.[/highlight]
hmm no idea whatcha saying there dude.
I have driven altis a lot of times and trust me u just press the ect button and floor the gas padel this baby starts flyin. city is simply no match.
200 % agreed !! Love the rush !
Do you guys know anything about AUTOMOTIVES? It doesn’t look so, atleast here!
Hehe personal opinions again my friend.
If you doubt or disagree with any thing, you must explain it & provide reasons, but not just by saying: WHO SAID, YOU SAID…
The things u're stating are your opinions not facts. That's why you need to provide stuff to back it up !
Rightly said my friend ! We need facts not opinions. Strong Xli sales (despite their lousy brakes) prolly mean Pakistani people aren't that knowledgable but it might also mean Xli is a good value for money car .
