In the fast pace era of today, when we plan to buy a fully functional sedan in Pakistan, we usually tend to decide to buy from Honda or Toyota. In Pakistan, the sedan sector is predominantly ruled by the latest Toyota Altis Grande and the new Honda Civic variants. Though, any company’s new entrant have to deliver something out of the box in order to give these two sedans a tough competition in the automobile industry. In this blog, I will be doing a detailed comparison between these two popular sedans of Pakistan.
By reading this blog, I assure the readers that they will be able to make the decision to buy which sedan car in an effortless manner. Honda Civic is available in Honda Civic hatchback, Honda Civic Type r and Honda Civic si, whereas Toyota Altis is available in two variants which are Toyota Altis and Toyota Altis Grande.
Toyota Altis price in Pakistan starts from Rs.21,50,000 to Rs.25,50,000 depending on the variant you prefer to buy.
In the new Toyota Altis Grande interior, you see an extravagant combination of ergonomics and innovative technology. It features a spectacular classic design dashboard, which makes the overall appeal of the interior appealing and impressive. You see a leather stitched Electric Power Steering (EPS) with mid switches and Audio controls. The high end variant of this Toyota sedan you see a much more detailed and sporty Multi-Information Display, whose addition of color screen makes it look more interactive. When we talk about the infotainment system of Toyota Grande you see a 9-inch capacitive touchscreen infotainment system, which allows the driver as well as the passengers to keep the location information and entertainment on their fingertips.
Moreover, Toyota Grande interior also features rear camera, front camera controls in the infotainment system, front console box, power windows, sunroof, rear reading light, power socket, automatic air conditioning, wireless jack key, luggage tray and soft touching pad.

The sports mode makes this sedan rank on top of all other sedans with similar engine specs and features.
When we talk about the safety features of the new Toyota Grande, during an impact the pre-tensioners along with the seat belts enhance restraint performance holding the passenger in place with right amount of pressure. The ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) prevents this sedan from skidding while braking in slippery and wet conditions. Moreover, the EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) ensures brake force is evenly distributed to all wheels for effective braking. The ELR (Emergency Locking Retractor) allows the seat belts to effortlessly retract and extend with the occupant movement, yet it locks the belt during a sudden impact or stop. The Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) concept in the Toyota Altis Grande prevents from sudden jerks to the neck of the passengers in an event of a rear end collision to minimize the chances of whiplash injury.
To ensure the maximum protection and safety of the passengers and drivers the Grande comes with front dual SRS airbags, which are designed to deploy in an unlikely event of an accident. The immobilizer key of Altis Grande is an anti-theft system which prevents the use of an unauthorized key with the vehicle. Every time the immobilizer key is inserted in the ignition switch it transmits a unique electric signal to the vehicle which enables it to start. The 1.8 liter Altis Grande comes with VSC (vehicle stability control).
