The Civics back seat is low slung, and the Cruze doesn't have the space one would expect in this segment. Plus, the back seat is too upright.

The Altis has spacious well-package interiors and a comfortable backseat. Plus, your father likes the car too. Go for it.

Now which model makes sense ?? I guess 1.8G suits best . or the sports model .

What say ??
Don't take things for granted. This is like the classic mutual fund disclaimer, past performance doesn't guarantee future returns.

Toyota has really fallen behind some other competitors in terms of reliability lately. A case in point is the new Camry (2007 release), which is no longer recommended by Consumer Reports due to poor reliability. However, offshoot Toyota's like Lexus and Scion still are the very best in terms of reliability.

For me, Civic is the best car among all the one's you've listed, may not be the most loaded or value for money, but still the 'best' car overall.

Corolla would come second, Cruze would tie for 2nd and Octavia the last.

Another good thing about Toyota - the service center / customer care people do often go out of their way in helping you out , I usually get small niggles fixed without any fee ( at-least in lucknow ) , and my car has never ever given me any problems ( My family has had 2 Toyotas previously ) .

Good Luck , Happy Diwali and Drive safe

+1 to singh.amrit. honda A.S.S people always have their head high (MY CAR SELLS WHATSOEVER) and don't worry bout customers much.

The case with Toyota is exactly the opposite.

Since rear seat comfort is more of preference for your father ALTIS is the way.
Cruz is little cramp in the legroom.Check with your Dad for his comfortableness.

GM also provides good quality products, but lack in resale & service.

Personally I prefer the Altis over Civic in every way. I feel that the Altis looks more stately. The car is reliable. The A.S.S is good and reasonably priced comparatively.
