ok. i did tested car with abs and without abs before i make statment... i did it on toyota corolla altis (my friend owns 1) and xli... both car have almost same stopping distance (from approx 100km/h) if u dont believe me do it ur self.. i told u that abs doesnot reduce the stopping distance long before i post statments from different reports and documents in order to further proof my statement.. and yes with abs there is no burning rubber and u can bit turn ur car to 1 side (that is control over car) i never denies that....and also city stop before corolla cuz of weight issue,...after all that u still dont believe i cant do anything... and about approx 4cm gc issue ok i agree that the GC of pakistani corolla is more as compare to us but its not just in pakistan, GC in india, china and many other counteries has also been increased and in all there counteries including pakistan height is 1480mm and GC is 176mm....
now here are 8-9 review of toyota corolla in india same as in pakistan saying the same thing that car handling and drive is more then excellent...now these are reviews from those who almost test very car from mid range to most expensive ones and i think they know a bit more then you do when it come to car.. now saying that increasing GC as compare to corolla in us has made the car unstable is more like personal apinion... hope u understand....

No! From early commercials, it may have looked like you could stop on a dime. That instantaneous stop is not realistic. When braking on dry or wet roads your stopping distance will be about the same as with conventional brakes.
You should allow for a longer stopping distance with ABS than for conventional brakes when driving on gravel, slush, and snow. This is because the rotating tire will stay on top of this low traction road surface covering, and effectively "float" on this boundary layer.
A non ABS braked vehicle can lock its tires and create a snow plow effect in front of the tires which helps slow the vehicle. These locked tires can often find more traction below this boundary layer
hope u understand....
