The logic isnt saving money, or anything the logic is simple
one decides to buy a car, lets see the options, Liana, Corolla Xli, Honda City?
Liana is Suzuki wont last more then 2 years,
Honda City, Corolla feels bigger, and would last longer,
Xli doesnt has power windows, Lets go for the Gli end of discussion Gli it is.
Gli gives you what you want in a complete car, Plus value for money even at resale, Theirs no car that provides you whats Corolla is providing you, Seriusly you dont get a Civic at Gli's price right? So end of discussion.
City and Liana are subcompacts, Corolla is a proper C segment sedan, that is the major reason of Gli sales,
