Toyota Prius 1.8

Different variants of Prius 1.8 (2013-14) can be bought in the price of Civic i-VTEC and i-VTEC Oriel. Three variants of Prius i.e. Prius L, S and S LED are priced same as new Honda Civic i-VTEC.

Honda Vezel
Honda Vezel is another viable option that can be considered in the price of new Honda Civic 1.5 Turbo. Vezel comes with a 1500cc hybrid engine and 6 SRS Air bags. Over the last couple of years, Honda Vezel has gained a reasonable numbers of customers in Pakistan.

(Price Segment: 25 to 27 Lakh)
Lexus CT200h
Lexus CT200h is a lesser known hatchback in Pakistan and features an 1800cc hybrid engine. Lexus also has a noteworthy reputation around the world for its  prestigious brand name. Lexus CT200h is far better than the current variants of Civic but the unavailability of spare parts in the local market is a great turn off for the buyers who want to consider Lexus CT200h over new Honda Civic.

(Price Segment: 23 to 25 lakh)
Honda Grace
Honda Grace is a 1500cc hybrid sedan that can be purchased at the price of Honda Civic i-VTEC and i-VTEC Oriel. Honda Grace has exactly the same shape and design as of the western variants of Honda City. It is also known as the hybrid variant of European Honda City. Honda Grace does not have a high resale value in Pakistan but it is expected that once the new model of Honda City launches in Pakistan, the resale value of Honda Grace will intensify to a great extent.

(Price Segment: 23 to 25 lakh)
Toyota Axio hybrid
The non-hybrid model of Toyota Axio made its mark in Pakistan with a dominating success ratio. The new model of Toyota Axio was introduced with hybrid specifications. Although Axio Hybrid did not become as popular as the previous non-hybrid Toyota Axio, but still it is a considerable option in hybrid cars under the price segment of Rs 2.5 Million.

  1. so in other words Pakwheels is promoting supporting purchase of USED JUNK JDM

    over Brand new PKDM cars with warranty. !

  2. I was also of the same opinion. I was promoting purchasing a Pakistani new brand zero meter warrantied car instead of a used and of unknown/ engineered history of JDM origin. But after my hard experiences with Corolla Altis 1.6 and new Civic X, I decided to try a JDM. I got Honda Fit 2013 on 1st Apr 17; an believe you me, I will never purchase a brand new but inferior quality Pak new car. Honda Fit has taken me to a new experience of comfort, joy and satisfaction. Quality of these cars is so good, that even after running for a 100000 K, they are way ahead than Pakistani zero meter cars.

  3. Yes I will prefer used JDM's over our warranty just because first of all our local warranty is useless in terms of benefit to the client.

    JDM's even though used does not betray you, at least they have not betrayed me from past 10 years. Cheers

  4. Seems like the average buyer is stuck in JDM need for speed or has insanely low level of standards, We see Honda Fit being told as comfortable here...

    in what world is a Honda Fit comfortable? and bywhat standards? sitting on a dirt floor?

    In quite simple terms, I sometimes have to be a purchaser of machinery and assorted industrial equipment.. my first concern is usability and servicability. While there are tons of unsupported used stuff being sold everyday, I refuse to even consider them as downtime would cost millions per day.

    in the same coin - any car whose parts I cannot buy brand new is not worth it - no matter if the car literally says "I love you" to me everyday.

    awesome/amazing/superlative/holy/Jannati hybrid etc are good if the manufacturer directly sells it to you and provides a support structure for it.

  5. umm - yes it is a hatchback. You consider that something else?

    I see a 2 box design where the cab is shared by the cargo space, that cargo space is accessible by a tall door in the rear, for decades this design has been coined as hatchback
