bro trust me. dont go for corolla. i drove a zero meter gli just a week back and it was SO SO boring to drive. the only gud thing abt corolla is suspension, rest it sucks big time. ppl here are saying that brakes are better than that of 2005, but then define "better"...in this case, i wud say they have gone from "extremely superbly pathetic" to a "better" state of "very pathetic". now, u decide. secondly, its HUGE in size for nothing, u get no additional advantage. as compared to city, its WAAYYYY underpowered and even at 100 km/hr ur RPM wud be way higher as compared to city. 87 hp vs 100 hp (and city having a lot less weight) makes city a way way way better proposition as compared to corolla, and even then being cheaper. please, just try the drive of new city first and then decide. goin for xli is a horrible horrible decission. with 5 on board on hikes around murree, u wud be struggling even on petrol, what to talk of CNG. and the list goes on.
