if u want features go for sx4 no doubt, corolla is spartan in comparison...if u want vfm then it is tough to beat maruti, but if u want a brand backing and the thorough reliability and legendary quality, toyota is tough to beat.. seems u r more of feature wanting guy, so better go for the sx4...and maybe the corolla model will be replaced with a new one soon.. so resale value will be down and sx4 is just fresh... so its ur call..

Unless you want every penny out of your petrol forget the SX4. As Enzo used to say 'A Ford howsoever done up will never be a Ferrari'. just change two names.

I think the whole argument is silly.

hardly has anything..... well it does has airbags, ABS and a 1.8 toyota engine..

 

 

but if you saying alloys...... and stuff like that then probably you could think of SX4 as buying corolla HE and then toping it up may be a coslty affair and may be out of the budget........

 

A lot depends what is your budget and what all you goibg to put in or what all you need in your car......

 

A plus point about SX4 is it's new.... against corolla which is soon to be phased out.............. but not that strong a point.........

is the corrola HE variant having ABS and Airbag too..? then its a very good choice to buy a corrola.... SX4 is a segment lower.... anyway..., SX4 will be cheaper to run and maintain.... It has got good comfort also.. good ground clearence too, without compromising on handling. Any vehicle, you may be choosing, but dont compromise on the safety features like ABS....

well it does....... but thats the end of it..... nothing else.......

 

and the worst part abotu HE would be its three spoke steering rather than the normal four one................... no alloys but that could be taken care of....

ok.. so on the safety part, both are similar.. thats it !!!!

so only think we have to consider are the cost of ownership and the other things. Corrola feels a bit dated now...whereas SX4 is brand new. think that, the corrola used car prices wont go down much, since its a Toyota. toyoa service is good too, even though the spares and labour charge are on the higher side.

Only thing a dont like about the corrola is its handling, which is like a boat....

DO NOT BUY A NON ABS COROLLA, IT SKIDS. the corolla brakes are really sensitive, depressing the brake pedal more than required causes the wheels to lock up in a non ABS corolla. The corolla is an excellent car, you won't regret for buying one. The sx4 is sluggish and the rear seat is an uncomfortable squeeze for 3, the fuel economy is poor and the interiors rattle. Hope this answers your question.

Since you're concerned about safety, the SX4 should be safer. It has a stiffer chassis and the A-pillars are designed in such a way that the roof wont collapse / crumple in event of an offset impact.
