umarbangash I don't think that Altis is a flop car. It is a car designed for specific class of people, for those with sporty taste and deeper pockets.
Among 100 buyers of Corolla, I think people who buy Altis are only 10-15. The reason being, not everyone like fast cars and fuel consumption is one of the biggest concerns people have now a days due to high fuel prices.
Although, Toyota says that it is fast as well as ECONOMICAL car with VVTI engine, which works like an ordinary car at low RPMs and become a mustang at higher RPMs.
May be people have the concept that 1.8 Altis would require great amount of fuel.
Can anyone tell me the fuel average of Corolla Altis?
