To me shape is good, i like interior as well (old school classy stuff, previous one had toy like feeling). But exterior is far better than current civic. Not to hurt fan boys but i am also a honda owner and i love honda and never liked any single thing about corolla and i was disappointed by this 9th gen. It not just me saying this, whole world criticized it and it was so **** that they had to give an early refresh. Even that did not changed things much
The new corolla is quite good looking and xli and gli will give a lot of competition to civic. For majority of pakistanis, 300cc difference does not matter much. Altis is going to be a fail? yea so what, it has always been a fail yet this did failure did not make even a dent on toyota's sales which is why they still are gonna release altis.
long story short, current corolla is much better than civic especially in exterior.
is that city in the picture posted in previous page? yea it looks beautiful but corolla doesn't look bad either
