Altis is fully leather and will likely have better resale value than this, but this is more cool and new.
In term of HP i think Cerato will outperform Altis 1.6 2007 manufactured right?
We can't justify the performance of Forte/Cerato 1.6 will outperform Altis 1.6 because Forte is heavier than Altis 1.6 (2001 until 2007 model). You will find it out yourself after test drive both cars and decide which one is will be yours favourite.
Just my own opinion, Altis 1.6 you are looking for is an used car and has already been driven 2 or 3 years. Price of Altis 1.6 should around RM70k (Facelift Mode). I do agree Altis has a better resale value compared to Korean car but you buy a car and sell it after 2 to 3 years. If resale value and full leather are the only things concern to you then you should go ahead for the altis. In fact, not many people demand for 1.6 Altis cos Altis 1.8 is much value for money.
The spec between Forte 1.6 SX and Altis 1.6 are much different. Forte spec were include Stability Control, 17inchs rim, steptronic, bigger engine output, wider body, longer wheelbase, keyless push start etc. These equipments you should take consideration and you can always purchase full leather from manufacturer or outside leather specialist at around 2k.
