What do you think of Corolla ? and what do you think of yourself ? You think you're so cool who can make a fun of Corolloa like this ? I'm afraid YOU'RE RIGHT ? HA HA.. & you're COOL too (thumbs up!)
I've driven both ALTIS & the current CIVIC, there's no comparison between them, even 1.6 Honda's pick is better than ALTIS, & just imagine the 4th generation of VTEC in 1.8 CIVIC...
ALTIS 1.8L DOHC VVTI 135hp
CIVIC 1.6L SOCH VTEC 128hp
CIVIC 1.8L SOHC iVTEC 155hp (UAE site)
Or in case of parallel DOHC CIVIC
CIVIC 1.8L DOHC iVTEC 176hp (calculated)
1.8 DOHC VVTI =75 horses per liter
1.6 SOHC VTEC =80 ~
1.8 SOHC iVTEC=86 ~
1.8 DOHC iVTEC=98 ~
Further more if you drive Corolla at 120 & CIVIC at 180, they'll give you similar handling. I don't wanna break Toyota lover's heart so I'm not talking about brakes ... !
