Answers for this Question
i have taken a test drive i liked the vehicle. Engine is not so refined like Dezire or Hyundai Xcent. but over all pickup is good . i selected this vehicle only because of good ground clearance all good features in XMS Petrol and the good space. It should be value for money. Since volume of cars on road is very less i am in double mind. Other options are XCENT and AMAZE . These vehicles are good for city purpose. i normally travel 3-4 times in a year to konkan region where roads are in bad shape in certain areas and you need good ground clearance . considering all facts i have selected the Tata ZEST. i have used TATA Bolt Diesel version for 1 year and it has excellent performance. I hope i have selected the correct car

  • Hi. I am planning to buy A Corolla Altis. Main factor is comfort and handling. is it the right choice at this price

    Published On :2017-11-14 12:21:52.0 By Arun

    Thank you for showing confidence in our services & writing to us.

    It's good to hear that you're looking forward to buy a car & we’ll be pleased to provide you the best possible counsel.

    We must appreciate your choice here as Toyota is well known for its cars & unmatched after-sales services.

    The carmaker recently facelifted its Corolla Altis. The refreshed model gets a host of new features, tweaked exterior looks and a shorter variant list than its predecessor, down from five petrol and four diesel to four and two respectively.

    The petrol variants are equipped with a powerful 1.8-litre(138.03bhp@6400rpm) power plant that is based on a dual VVT-i technology. The diesel trim is powered by a sophisticated 1.4-litre D-4D engine, which churns 87.2bhp@3800rpm.

    The company has skilfully coupled this diesel mill with a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox but the petrol is also available with CVT gearbox.

    If you will be driving around 50-70 KM's(approx.) a day, we will suggest you to go with diesel variant. Otherwise, if your driving will be less, than you can opt for petrol variant.


    The comfort features are at par with other competitors. The Toyota Corolla Altis is a well-appointed D segment sedan. It doesn't boast of being the best looking car amongst the lot, however it is possibly one of the most practical, well-engineered and comfortable vehicles available in its segment. The Corolla Altis is a value-for-money proposition that does everything right.

    If you're looking for diesel variant then you can also have an eye on Volkswagen Jetta.

    The Corolla Altis competes with likes of the Volkswagen Jetta, Hyundai Elantra and the Skoda Octavia in the domestic market.
