45k increase is for GLI 1.6? I dont think so; my understanding is they are launching 1.3XLI and 1.3GLI. In May Dual VVTI Altis is coming and then 1.6GLI. These two GLIs are confusing; they better either drop 1.3GLI or name them something like XE, LX and GLI from 7th gen or adopt XLI, GLI and SE 9th gen naming
I dont think any new difference is coming except dual VVTI is exclusive to Altis and as @rizwan bh has mentioned SR will now also have rain sensing wipers.
For the sake of info to readers; currently (only) driver side SRS, Rims, Wood Panels, Better Audio (2 DIN + 2 more speakers), Keyless Entry, Side Protection Moulding and Side Skirts are exclusive to Altis. Cruisetronic adds trip-tronic and cruisecontrol gearbox. Altis-SR adds Sunroof. There are other small differences like Altis has Meter Illumination Control, its seat belts has pretensioner and force limiter, its Windsheild has top shade, mud guards are body colored, its gear shift lever has leather covering, centre console has two steps.
According to the Indus website Altis also has Optitron Meter, Fuel Cut System and Tilt and Telescopic Steering. Can someone explain what these are? I kept GLI for short time and havnt seen Altis from inside so have no hands on knowledge about these!
