Amidst all the good and the bad things happening in the auto sector, the trend of Kei or 660cc cars doesn’t seem to fade away any time soon. In-line with the growing demand for fuel-efficient and fully equipped cars, people in Pakistan seem to show more interest in the economy cars.
Moreover, the expanding business of ride-hailing services is also one of the contributing factors in the increased interest in cars having 660 cc engine capacity.
However, Suzuki Alto and Wagon R have become popular in both categories i.e. 660cc and 1000cc. Other than this, in the 1000cc category, Toyota Vitz and Toyota Belta were the most searched cars in September 2018.
SUVs are gaining popularity; as per the stats revealed by Pakistan Auto Manufacturers Association (PAMA), in August the total sales of SUVs rose by 17%. And just like the previous month, Toyota remained as the top searched brand in the SUV segment with Toyota Prado, Land Cruiser, and Toyota Rush as the most searched SUVs, and apart from Toyota, Mitsubishi Pajero was also the most searched car.
