Sahil - agreed on the HIDs, they are in neither G or J, my mistake.
vinaydas - Delhi dealers have J available for delivery within three days.
SkyWalker - agreed that Altis J seems far lower spec than Civic E, which is why I don't understand it's high price for what it is.
sgmuser - If you see the specs comparison J definitely has a cross next to Wheel, whereas G has a tick - I'm just not sure what this refers to.
The dealbreakers for me are:
No air bags
No keyless entry
No immobiliser + alarm
No audio system
No rear seat armrest
The rest I could just about live without but it would seem like driving around in a taxi rather than a nice car! I'm considering Altis G and Civic E, but this Altis J really doesn't enter the picture.

The previous-gen Corolla was always a favorite with tourist cabs. Great back seat, ability to withstand abuse and Toyota quality. Its obvious who this cutprice Altis is being targeted to. Altis sales are settling down to where the previous gen Corolla left off, guess Toyota is looking to increase its sales volumes wherever it can in these trying times.

The Corolla and Scorpio are totally different. The former is a sedan and the latter a SUV. Several other things are different. To me the bobby ride quality of the Scorpio is a major deal breaker compared to the cosseting Corolla. But then, each of us has different priorities when we buy a car.

Toyota doesn't have anything in its product portfolio to go against the City and IMO this is the easiest way to have some kind of presence in that segment.
Carwale lists the City V AT at 10.07 lakhs and the Corolla J at 10.18

its primarily meant for the cabbies i think. The pure white colour, a favourite with the cabbies is only available in the J variant.
