    If you want a worry free car then go with the Altis.

    kung brandnew, wait for the new altis nalang. alam ko magkasunod sila ng vios ilalabas. june na yung vios. but if FC is really important to you, accent nalang. tsaka if space matters, masmalaki altis.

    Old (but good condition) Benzes. I always remember the saying, "there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Benz". :D

    Depends on your needs. The Accent will be thriftier and have more power due to it's 1.6L CRDi engine. If you drive solo always and want a good sleeper then this is a good choice, especially since it's cheaper than the Altis 1.6V.

    For long term ownership and overall comfort, the Altis has a good edge. If you love cruising, doing a relaxed drive and carry passengers more often then this is more comfortable to have. In the end, it's also a bigger car with tried and tested quality, service is pretty straightforward and is proven to age well in the long run if you keep cars for many, many years (this last item is just a personal opinion).

    It's a hard choice if you ask me. The reviews on the Accent power and efficiency, and perhaps the hatchback design for some, really makes you think well about it but it's still a class below the Lancer, Altis and Elantra if you look at the pricing which overlaps already. The size, comfort and relative safe ownership of the Altis still has a big value and heck, if Toyota could just figure a way to bring in the D4d powered Altis then that would seem to be a sweet deal.

    Try to get a test drive of both vehicles if you may.

    The Corolla Altis would be the better long term car. The Accent CRDi will be more expensive to maintain long term due to its diesel engine. What savings you might have on the cost of fuel would be offset to the higher maintenance cost of the turbo-diesel engine.

    Thanks for the inputs Guys!

    thought of waiting for the new Altis sana but based on my budget i doubt i could affor the totl altis if ever, no kc malaki na discounts...

    leaning towards the atlis based on comfort and peace of mind i guess... hopefully FC and cost isnt too bad specially that im coming from a vios that gets me an average of 12km/l...
