Confirmed: Pakistan to Witness the Launch of 4 New Cars in 2017


Ever since the implementation of the new auto policy 2016-2021, Pakistan’s automotive industry has been reinvigorated. The local auto manufacturers seem to have realised that the market is about to change and the country’s growing economic conditions are causing a paradigm shift towards a better lifestyle. So in these circumstances, where foreign investors are scrutinising the country’s market heavily to gauge its calibre, things are certainly about to change.

We have the month of December as an example, where Toyota has already launched two vehicles and Suzuki is expected to launch one too.

Granted none of the vehicles was aimed for the entry-level consumer, the fact remains that for the first time in its Pakistan will be witnessing a launch of three new vehicles in a single month. And it seems this frenzy is not going to stop anytime soon because the government has received confirmation of investment from multiple auto manufacturers, the local auto-assemblers are scrambling to sustain their brand followers by launching new products. In the latest development, PakWheels sources have revealed that the following cars will be launched in the year of 2017.

Suzuki Ciaz:

Yes, ladies and gentleman, it’s about time that Pakistan receives a much-needed option in its redundant entry-level sedan market. Suzuki Ciaz is expected to be priced competitively and will be launching in the first quarter of 2017.

 

All New Suzuki Cultus:

The Pakistani market is in desperate need of a small, affordable, modern, economical and locally manufactured car. As the Pakistan’s only small vehicle manufacturer, all hopes rest on Pak-Suzuki. The company introduced WagonR in 2014, and the car became an instant hit, which was partly due to Pak-Suzuki brand name, partly because it was locally manufactured and partly due to its relatively modern features as compared to other lower end cars (locally made) in Pakistan. PakWheels sources report that Suzuki Celario will be officially unveiled in the second quarter of 2017 under the brand tag of Suzuki Cultus. The all new Cultus is expected to come with a 1000cc engine and is sure to rejuvenate the local automobile industry.

 

Audi Q2:

Although the Audi brand signifies a higher end and luxury vehicles, the fact remains that the company is trying to tap into a greater chunk of consumers by offering them a low-end car with a few compromises on power and luxuries. In the latest development, Audi Pakistan has announced that it will be bringing a 1.0L Turbocharged FWD Q2 in Pakistan in the first quarter of 2017. Sources reveal that the vehicle will come at a highly competitive price of 3.0-3.3 million PKR and will offer a new opportunity of owning a prestigious brand.

 

Audi A5 Sports back:

The coupe cum sedan cum coupe is being described as the trimmed down Audi A7. This car is aimed to cater the medium-higher end German sedan consumers. Audi Pakistan will be announcing its tariff in the first quarter of 2017.

    WagonR? instant hit? are you kidding? it took more than 2 years to pick up sales.

  • Ali

    I can bet ke PakSuzuki ne Ciaz aur cultus ka wohi haal karna hai jo unho ne wagonR ka kia hai .. just compare it to “any” other country’s wagonR features and price wise

  • Dr A.L

    A very dashing title indeed.. I was expecting some thing under 800cc car , or a car under the price tag of 7 lacs, ciaz is expected to at Rs 20 lacs and celerio to be at 12.50 lac, please donot remove my comment, as Pakwheels is used to remove comments…we need brand new mehran with latest shape and more features….

  • ciyber

    very true

  • Askari

    Where is Suzuki Viatara?

  • Haris

    who buys an audi, the 0.1 % ? and you are selling launch of 2 audis as good news. And who the hell will buy a 2 million pak manufactured Suzuki .. !!
    Seems like these auto manufactures have no idea of market dynamics here. More than 70 % market comprise of a 1.3 – 1.6 million feature packed sedan and 0.7 – 0.11 m hatchback. If you offer any of these you will be an instant hit.

  • Pappu

    Vitara launch in one week…so it us being launched in 2016.

  • Pappu

    *is

  • Trax

    Vitara is not pak made. It is imported. Manufactured in Hungary…Europe….and price is probably not going to be 2 mill….it’s probably going to be higher

  • Ahmed

    Heard that Ciaz will start from 20 lac? WOW HAHAHAHA no thanks for a 20 lac Suzuki. Suzuki brand in Pakistan is worth peanuts.

  • Usman Khawaja

    wow, this is great to know

  • guest

    I think we need to recheck.

    Suzuki Ciaz are test units only while New Cultus (Celerio) has been put on hold as Paksuzuki wants special benefits from govt to introduce new models. 660cc Mehran is also not coming anytime soon and has been under consideration for 2-3 years now.

    At the moment only Suzuki Vitara CBU is launching.

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    Exactly bro…Can’t even read comments properly. Whole page is dangling up and down due to improper image sizes.

  • Ahmed

    Sir baat Pakistani market context may hori hai. Suzuki is a world renowned brand? Maybe in bikes but not in cars. Aur Pakistani market may its worth a donkey cart’s value. Haan apkay liye shayed worth ho.

  • Askari

    What’ll will be the price of Viatara?

  • Mirza

    LET’S HOPE FOR THE BEST. I’M LOOKING GOOD BRIGHT PAKISTAN FOR US. NICE PROGRESS GOING ON IN PUNJAB N ELSE WHERE IN EVERY FIELD.

  • Asad

  • Faiyyz

    Hi. I live in lahore but due to unavailability of someone knowledgeable enough I’ve come here just to ask that we’ve planned to buy an 2015 s class coupe but we dont know how much it costs in Pakistan(though we know its more than 2 crore). I will be grateful if anybody tells me that most approximate price.
    Thank you

    Audi A-5 is a very nice luxury car but why do you call it, ‘Sedan cum Coupe’?
