oh,,newton,,one of my favourite pak wheeler.....a good post...here are my comments
i think,,,due to extraordinary height of both corolla and Liana,,,these cars face aerodynimics problem,,,at motorways thses car give shaking ride,,,,,today i closely observed a Liana in Saddar pindi,,while driving my xli,,and i thought that liana is even higher than corolla....so these cars need broader tyres to overcome thses problems of AIRODYNIMICS at speeds greater than 120..
2) now comming back to thick pillar thingh,,corolla has got exactly the same problem,,the front pillar is so thick that u are not able to see the thinghs properly at corners,,i dont know why in new cars they have front thick pillars.
3)well,,noise of air is less in corolla,,,but noise of engine at speed greater than 100 km,,is unpleasent for a ""luxury car """ like this...... reminds me of my cultus,,which was also noisy at higher speeds.
thses are personnel experience........comments are welcomed.
