Pros : Great looks, superb driving experience

Cons : None as such

I am on a kind of test drive spree this week having my hands on some of the best wheels in the 10 to 13 lacs segment as I wish to purchase a luxurious sedan soon. Before my purchase I want to be absolutely assured on picking the right product. I asked various dealers in Chennai to arrange a test drive for me and I soon got one from one of the dealers in the city. This experience gave me some valuable insights on the car and I would love to share it all with you. The moment I saw the car I noticed the protruding rear side of the car and then I realised that it is due to the spacious boot space the car offers. I quite liked the beige colored interiors of the car as well. The CD player provided by the company is of great quality and makes the driving experience all the more fun. The car comes packed with some amazing features like A/C with climate control, electrically adjustable/retractable ORVMs with turn indicators, glass integrated antenna, a lot of storage space, center armrests with cupholders on front/rear seats, a good looking console etc. I got to know that Corolla has two SRS airbags and the braking system is with ABS and EBD. As I took a car that was driven for only 5000 kms for test drive, I could not assess the car well on vibrations and rattle caused. The moment I switched the engine on, I was extremely delighted with the noiseless cabin space. I will have to admit that the car with its superb gear ratios and turning radius, is a great car to drive in traffic. Also, I tested the braking system twice from 80-0 and it was super smooth, especially the braking with ABS is superb. After my test drive of Corolla Altis and few more cars in the same segment, I found this to be the most practical option as the ground clearance offered by Corolla Altis is unique and is not provided by any other car in the segment. The ride comfort is good because of the passenger friendly suspension, especially to the rear seat passengers. The car has proved to be the most economical option in the petrol category. With such an amazing range of features the car actually costs much lower than Honda Civic or Skoda laura, making it the most affordable car for Indian buyers. I am absolutely thrilled with the car and do not find a single reason for anyone to be double minded as far as Corolla Altis is considered.
