Due to manipulative marketing and sales strategy of Toyota Indus and Honda Atlas, like others, i too am facing problems in choosing the right car for myself. The honda city price have been made in such a manner that eventually are options cost the same more or less.
I am currently driving a 2011 vitz which is running perfectly and giving no issues at all. However, an upgrade to a sedan has been long awaited things in the personal to do list. Due to previous mishaps in buying a used Japanese car , e.g. buying a 4.5 auction grade car when actually it is 3.5 , has been a big turn off for me personally. This is the reason why i want to go and buy a car off the shelf and that leaves me with two options i.e. a city A/T and Corolla Altis A/T ..
Even in this , the prices have been set to confuse buyers e.g. City aspire 1.3 is only 25k less than aspire 1.5 ..
So this brings me to the question as to which car to go for between honda and corolla?
I need an A/T version and my daily commute is between Rwp. and Isl only. I am looking to get comfortable ride with good pick and has an effective a/c system.
The resale is obviously a factor but new cars do drop their prices. however, i would prefer safety over resale that includes airbags, immobilizer etc.
One of my corolla altis 1.8 A/T 2010 has already been stolen due to absence of immobilizer option which is why i am afraid to go for corollas but due to limited options, i might have to sacrifice the immobilizer option.
Will appreciate if pakwheels members can help in this regard as spending a 2 million on a ride is a big thing for me and i want to take my time to make the right decision.
