New Honda navigation is an awesome system but it's slow at the moment and has software issues.
Grande OR Civic: That's a very offensive and never ending Honda VS Toyota war. A toyota fan will tell you honda fans are lying and this time Corolla is better than Civic.
Back till 2004 i was a hardcore Corolla fan and used to hate Honda thinking it's Nazuk. But once i kept a Honda it feels annoying and painful now when I'm driving a bone aching Corolla.
What i know is: i can make you meet many Honda users, who with ignorance for its better shape bought a Grande purely out of fashion listening to Toyota fans. This thursday i had to go with one friend to get changed Euro tyres for his new Civic which got delivered from showroom and exactly next day on friday my other friend also got his 9th Gen and we went to get tyres changed BECAUSE just like others who bought it out of fashion. My friends bought Grande when it was launched, few months later were so annoyed by its hard seats, blank interior, non sophisticated design, back aching and shoulder aching driving positions that had to bear a loss to the pocket of about Rs.3 lakhs to switch to Honda again (one bought with 1.5 lakh premium)
If you want to enjoy a comfortable pleasure drive get a Honda. If you want something to be driven by your illiterate driver then get a Toyota. Our lot of friends driving both may also tell you Corolla is better but then either they don't know how to feel a car or deep down they are Toyota fans. Also then why a Grande? Xli for 16-lakh too has the same shape and comfort, why spend another 1.5 times extra 8-lakh for the same car?
Sorry guys if Civic is a horrible car compared to Grande, but i prefer it and can never possibly get a Corolla so please don't feel offended by my choice which i own. You can go for what you like.
