Thats nice, I would say, Considering the new Camry has a terrific road presence & a stunner, IMO.

I second that. The new camry is an absolute stunner and looks huge. However, i notice that most of them are 5* property owned ones on the road and that too in that lovely sea blue color. I am yet to see a different color.

if the Altis has even a small patch to it, then it would be a great improvement on the existing Carolla.

Default final stage

Hi any one already bought ALtis on Team Bhp? I have taken two test drives and after each TD my mind says to buy it. There is practically everything good in the car and nothing wrong in it but at the same time there is nothing to go crazy about. Only thing is it was my dream/target car 6 years ago (as a young kid on the business block) so I am fulfilling my 6 year old target and am very happy.

Colors we have short listed are Champagne and light blue metallic. Still confused over whether to go for the G model or the GL. Most I will miss the HIDs if I go for G model. The interiors of G are also very well done in fabric. I already have an Ikon in Vitro color which is very close to LBM color of Altis.

Suggestions needed for which model to go for and also tell your color choices. The price difference in two models is almost 1.3 Lacs on road.

buy the blue coloured Altis. Also whats the price difference between the 2 variants you mentioned. If its marginal (which i am sure is not) then go for the higher variant.

If HID is the only criteria for the higher variant, dont bother, you can get that done aftermarket.

man if you can afford the higher variant get it. but if the power drivers seat and hids with headlamp washers dont matter to you much then even the g model is fine. btw you thinking of an auto or a manual?

Manual for sure. I will add rear sensors, blue ambiante light, but no body kit. What else should I add?

Also everyone please tell your top two color choices. What would you buy out of the available 5?

Ym,

Colour of the car is a very subjective thing and of personal choice, so I suggest you go for the one which appeals to you most. Personally, I would prefer the light blue metallic followed by champagne mica metallic.

My advice would be to go for the GL version if your budget permits.

Keep telling your model preference and color preferences, it will help a lot in deciding . Also that I set the target for Corolla when I didn't had even an old 800, it was dream car 6 years ago. But not now, now that its becoming a reality I will set a new target.. prob will start a new thread for that...

I personally like the Champagne color. Looks classy on a car like Corolla.

Also, go for the GL if your budget permits. The small additions in a higher spec variant make the ownership experience so special!

All the best!

Color is a personal choice, i am not sure whether you will think about matching the interior color with outside one.

The price difference is 1.5 lakhs (on road).
The main differences are

a. Electrically adjustable driver seat v/s manual adjustable driver seat
b. HID headlamps with retractable washers
c. Rear sunshade
d. Automatic headlamp adjuster

I am looking at the Automatic version in Dark Red or Pearl White colour. Hope to book sometime next month or in Nov. Been to their godown in Nandi Toyota and didnt like other colour options. Civic has better color options than Altis. Apparently the Red one is good demand in Bangalore.
