Kei cars continue to dominate the auto sector

660cc cars

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.

In the 660cc category, people were more interested in Suzuki Alto, Suzuki WagonR, Daihatsu Mira and Suzuki Every.

However, Suzuki Alto and Wagon R have become popular in both the 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.

The most searched sedans in September were Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Honda City, and Camry.
