This depends on your requirement.
For a family like mine, we need a secure car as our cars are parked in hospitals and outside clinics for hours - sometimes without any guards to look after them.
We have been through a very horrible car crash and since then we vowed to buy the pkdm (for long motorway hauls) with the atleast a passenger airbag.
This is our personal experience.
We now want a second bigger car and the Corolla doesn't meet our requirements. However we are quite hopeful there will be an upgrade and they will introduce an immobiliser atleast. If not then maybe the upcoming city will have it.
Yes, maintenance and parts are cheap. It's comfortable. Has good resale. But for a family like mine, safety and security first - then other stuff.
