If u dont already have a Corolla in your home, try out this one. Altis now having a similar engine as the Gli auto, Seems that Altis is going to do gud in resale as well, When coming to resale yes may ul brake up some money but still its going to sell for more then the value of a similar model Gli.
Yes the Changing shape of the Civic is an issue due to which many people arent opting for Civic right now. But Civic isnt a bad car, if i had money il buy both.
On a personal note, Corolla plastics are better and Corolla is durable car if u tend to use it rough. the new 1.6L gives 11-12 km a liter on petrol.
Civic is fun to drive, the 1.8L gives an average of 9km a liter, But the car is fragile, lets say if driven rough might want frequent maintainence.
Thats about it from my side, i persoanly own a 1.3 Gli, so cant say much about the Altis or the Civic Im telling what i noe, most people in my family are prefering 2 Corollas rather then a Civic Corolla combination, And thats happend in the family.
