Alto to be replaced by Wagon R, Liana close to its death and Mehran will have an EFI engine

2011-Suzuki-Wagon-R

The company which advertised a 20 years old obsolete car in 2011 as bearer of executive look has been confronted with a lot of rumors about Mehran’s conversion to EFI system. The hideous car which bears the executive look, Cultus was also converted to EFI and some riced out grille, head and tail lights. Now though, Mehran is also following the very steps.

Government has set deadline of 2012 for auto-assemblers to bring their cars to Euro-2 standards therefore Suzuki is working pretty fast to upgrade its Mehran to Euro-2 standards. Ofcourse, this goal will be accomplished through installing the engine found in Maruti 800, the 796cc MPFI engine.

Sources tell that three Suzuki Mehran will be sent to Japan for testing by 15th of July for three months of testing. After the testing is complete in Japan, the management of Pak Suzuki will sit down to design a new hideous grill, bumper, head and tail lights for the new Mehran EFI and hallelujah! The new Mehran will be launched here, probably by early 2012.

There has been another development at Pak Suzuki though, one that we all might cheer about. Suzuki Alto and Liana will depart tentatively due to Euro-2 standards. Mehran’s conversion to EFI didn’t cost much and the price is also expected to change by little difference however, Pak Suzuki is not converting Alto to EFI because Alto will cost more than Cultus. So, Pak Suzuki is working on a feasibility to introduce Wagon R in place of Alto, which will be priced between Mehran and Cultus.

But it is out of question to expect the 4WD version of the Wagon R because the price and fuel mileage will be high, therefore a FWD version will arrive.

For pictures and more information, look up Indian Wagon R and Maruti 800, because that’s what we are going to get anyways with a new badge.

  • death to Liana, Are they not thinking of introducing an alternate 1300 c.c car

  • ToofaneBatameezi

    Nopes, nothing as of yet apart from the news that its coming off the line.

  • ToofaneBatameezi

    FWD 1000cc probably.

  • Majid

    what about the Cultus any change expected?

  • ToofaneBatameezi

    Nopes. Not that I know off.

  • iceberg

    what do u mean by death to Liana. Are they going to stop making Liana? What abt the parts for present Liana. What would be their availability like?

  • ToofaneBatameezi

    Yes, they are going to stop making Liana. Parts are mostly imported by private importers. Parts availability won’t be an issue.

  • When you say that sources say this and that, do you actually glorify your conjectures with the name of sources, or you really have any. If yes, and if they are credible, and not some lazy enthusiasts sitting around the desks of car dealers making wild guesses, would you care to share? My sources certainly do not agree with you.

  • MUHAMMAD AJMAL BHATTI

    IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THE SPEEDO METER OF EFI MEHRAN SHOULD HAVE BRIGHT AND DIGITAL AND LOOKING IN THE NIGHT AND SURVA BREAK SHOULD HAVE TO BE INTRODUCED IN MEHRAN EFI
