I always loved the civic style, the sporty look and the indash speedometer.
But after driving both cars in different types of roads I finally went for Altis, I have to go up north where roads are always in bad shape. Civic has suspension which cannot afford bumps and humps. Toyota can bear everything which comes in it's path. Also one can feel the bumps more in civic as compared with toyota. Yes when it comes to drive on moterway, civic takes the lead.

Comfort is perfect, as good as civic, specially the cruise control let's your legs relax on motor way while you are driving 400km to ISL.

Performance I will give it one less as when it comes to pick of the car, civic will give you instant boost when you floor the accelerator as compared to corolla which you might be a bit lazy.

Value for Money for sure, within this price range the features offered are comparable with any other car in the market.

Fuel Economy is far better than civic.

Best for local car!

Toyota Corolla Altis Cruisetronic 1.6

Posted by Faizan Malik on Sep 01, 2012

I have recently bought the 2012 altis 1.6 A/T.
I find this car good in eficiency giving about 12km/liter.
The cruise control feature is very handy on the motorway,by the way no local made cars have this feature.
Ground clearance is much better than Gli,Xli,Civic,and City.
Performance wise not my favorite car,wish the older 1.8ltr version was still availible.I also notice the Rpm reaching to 3 when cruising speed is about 120km.
The engine is more quiter than xli/gli.
Should have steering wheel audio or temprature controls.
One thing that disturbs me is that in the sunroof version there is a lot less headroom compared to xli/gli/civic.
The driver and passanger seats are comfortable but the rear seat should have a bit more leg room.
The plastic mirors and plastic door handles are removed like in the gli/xli.
The door from the interior gives a quite classy look with leather.
The dashbord is full of plastics,and does not give the premium feel when adjusting the A/C.
Toyota should have had dual airbags,as the Altis is only having one for the driver.
Having some minor hold backs,but overall best car in the market.

Have owned the car for over an year now and the positives and negatives i've experienced thus far are as as follows:
Positives:
1. Appearance. Especially with nice 16 inch wheels and low profile tires it has the rare ability to look cool and classy at the same time.
2. A/C: Fantastic air conditioning. One year in, even in the 48C afternoons, it makes me shiver.
3. Fuel Economy. Does about 14 on the Motorway and about 10 in the city per litre. That's not amazing or anything but decent enough for a car this size and with such outdated technology.
4. Comfort. Long drives are not a problem! Especially with the cruise control going back and forth between lahore and isloo in a day is more of a pleasure than a pain.
5. ECO feature. Its has made me change my driving habits. Now i'm always on the hunt for the little green light to light up on my dashboard to let me know that i'm driving in an efficient manner. Used to drive like a teenager on crack, but not anymore.

Negatives:
1. Build Quality: its just over all a shabby job. The cheap plastic on the dash creeks and groans like a 90 year old woman. When you pay upwards of 2 million for a vehicle you deserve better.
2. Performance: I will never understand why the 1.6 litre hasn't been provided a 5-speed auto transmission. You can tell every time you rev the engine that it has the potential for greatness but the horrible gear box strangles it every time. With ridiculously wide gear ratios you end up with a tiny 500 rpm range of peak power in each gear while the rest of the range is reserved for making noise and looking stupid. Its such a let down!
3. Handling: a boy racer this ain't! Its slow and cumbersome in corners, the steering is light and fluffy like pudding. There are ships out there more nimble than this car. Of course that means a somewhat more comfortable driving expereince but for those looking for responsiveness and that ever illusive fun factor that honda and even Suzuki seem to get right sometimes, the Altis disappoints.
4. Sound. The engine wheezes and wails like an old, sick cat. Of course you don't expect ferrari like symphony from a family sedan but still, the engine should at least sound as good as it looks and this sounds horrible.
5. Stock General Tires: they call em eurostar now but don't be fooled, they are still the same crappy general tires that couldn't grip a road paved with samad bond. Change them ASAP.
6. Horribly Stupid Foot rest: yest it has a so called foot rest for the driver but instead of it being where the clutch is in a manual car, its stuck way off to the left and at an angle that actually requires you to contort your foot into a most inhuman position just to reach it. Its more like foot torture than foot rest.

Overall:
Despite the negatives, its still a comforting car to own. I enjoy driving it in the same way one enjoys a nice hot shower on a cold january night. Its soothing and calming rather than energizing and exciting. if you enjoy the art of driving and like your cars to be responsive, quick and with a bit of a fighting spirit. This car is not for you. If on the other hand, you just want to get from point A to point B hassle free and comfortably, go for the Altis and it won't disappoint.

New Altis

Toyota Corolla Altis Cruisetronic 1.6

Posted by tanvir on Mar 27, 2012

I'm new to over 1300 cc.
Got Altis on 15 Feb 2012, after a wait of 4 months +. Very smooth car, but not so stable. Gives feel of drift on sudden minor jerk of hand. A/T is a not a new experience for me, but was different on Japanese model of Vitz. In Altis one feel change of gears, which is not good. Seats are not comfortable as previous models of XLIs & GLIs. Fuel economy for my initial 3 tanks is 11.5 Km/ litre. I drive on economy and habit smooth driving, but the promised 12% inc fuel efficiency is missing. Interior quality is too good. New oncoming navigation system will be a good boost. Interior is much much more impressive than Civic. AC should have electronic controls.Overall, a good car
