having personally experienced this new indus corolla i can safely say Xli/ Gli will rule again and Altis will suffer, why? couple of reasons..
1. They should have kept Altis as Altis, the top of the line trim thats it. what they are doing now is that 1.8=Altis while classifications in Altis like simple, SR, Grande etc with stuff there in Grande missing in other Altis variants is too bad. The top of the line Grande trim has everything driver/ passenger airbags, cruise controls & navigation and paddle shifts etc and will cost around 24 lacs (unofficial news from insiders). obviously no one will go for slightly cheaper stripped Altis variants with 1.8 engine and goodies missing for say 20 lac+
2. Xli automatic can be curtains for city, BUT the interior which looks fabulous (as per corolla standards) in Altis Grande looks somewhat incomplete in other trims due to lack of chrome, functions/ buttons and other missing stuff.. price is very important here
3. Gli 1.6 will have market of its own
4. unconfirmed sources say civic is bringing a face-lift to counter the Grande and will have push-start, improved tail lights and other stuff while all other Altis variants will suffer again
