Dear i have drive both toyota gli 2012 and city 2012, the differece i fell was:
Toyota: there was no any difference in brake pedal working on low/high speed. and above 120km/h on applying brake car feels slipping may be due to its height from road.
Honda: on low speed brake pedal become smooth and lose.. on high speed brake pedal automatically boosts and on applying brakes it feel like car is sticking to road, no any feeling of slip.
Both cars were having stock Euro Star tires.
I think brake performance more depends upon its mechanics instead of disk/drum etc
this is only brake,,engine performance is another quality of honda.
i was fan of corolla but one drive of city changed my choice
