Yes Sir U are right all the cars here are over priced Suzuki , Toyota, Honda even the imported jdms 5 year used cars have insane price tag , premio 2011 and prius new shape for example !
But I am really speechless when u say GLI is the only option , well built and performs much better than Honda .
I have used 5 Corollas since 2002 all of them were top of the line variants and were bought brandnew , Se Saloon auto in March 2002 when it was launched and was the 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] car of khi , then 2.0D Saloon , Altis , then 2.0D SALOON SR in August 2008 when it was launched , then ALtis 1.8 SR Cruisetronic 2011 model , no offense , But I Don?t think GLi performs better or has better features or built quality then above mentioned variants of COWROLLA . I am not showing off , as cowrolla is just a simple family sedan , I am just trying to correct tht? Honda is a piece of trash and gli performs better than Honda ? I have never kept any City till now , but have used /owned 4 Civics , I bought my first Civic in July 2006 it was a second hand VTI oriel PrOSMATEC 2004 and really changed my perception that corolla is the best paki assembled car , that civic even 40k kms driven and second hand was much better than ALTIS , 2.od saloon and Se saloon auto , then my father also changed his car and bought exi prosmatec 2005 and really enjoyed driving it , 2004 civic was my only car tht I kept for 4 plus years it was a beauty and much much better in all aspects than 9[SUP]th[/SUP] gen corolla !
Then in August 2008 I had choice of going for either reborn / 8[SUP]th[/SUP] gen civic or corolla ( which was a lil expensive with more reg charges etc ) But I still went for corolla ! Yes it was a head turner but thts it nothing more than that for some time , then ( being a die hard rolla lover like u ) I thought Altis Cruisetronic SR is the right car , I should have gone for altis SR not 2.od SR , so bought top of the line altis in 2011 , it was a good car but still simply plain n boring , and finally I sold it and tried the beauty , 8[SUP]th[/SUP] gen civic reborn , My GOD ! It was a beauty and hell better than all Corollas ! I mean u just cant compare the feel and driving pleasure u get in a civic , corolla is nothing , unless u live in village or have poor road conditions then corolla is ur car , if ur in city 8[SUP]th[/SUP] civic is much better than corolla , and Now Finally after purchasing latest VTI oriel Prosmatec , even tht uncomfortable and a lil bumpy hard ride of 8[SUP]th[/SUP] gen civic has gone and it?s a treat to drive ! interior , ride comfort , pick , stability , features, road clearance everything is just too good , I preferred it over C -180 2007 fresh imported but previous shape , Prius , New Premio , used Camry , Your Great GLi obv , and the great Mark X , it is not a crappy piece of **** at all , even the so called hard platic interior of this new civic feels so great , the car has a great finish , and has a smooth drive , has many good features and u have peace of mind tht car is under warranty and has 3s support !
Even this time again , 90% ppl saying corolla will beat new civic bla bla bla , will be the ones who can afford Xli or Gli which are comparatively cheaper than civic so tht doesn?t even count . 10% ppl like me will have a genuine reason tht Corollas shape is great , but again I have to think atleast 1000 times before taking this decision , All of us know , the interior is not even a competition for Civics outstanding interior , lay out and finish , The driving pleasure and fun to drive factor is still something corolla has to achieve and except for the exterior design corolla is still a step behind infact far behind civic ! Just Google it Sir , there are many articles in open forums and sites like Edmunds etc
Never wanted to go off the topic , but reply banta tha aap k liye sir no offense
