Normally, PakWheels is associated with developing and shifting of views on all things automotive for everyone except Pak Suzuki because they do that themselves. Pak Suzuki is becoming the most hated car company ever. If there were competition in the small cars segment, they would’ve gone bust already due to the negative PR they have in Pakistan unless they managed a massive transformation.
Previously it was the threats made by Pak Suzuki to leave Pakistan, and now, they have raised the prices of locally produced motorcycles by an average PKR 5,000 since Friday. They have also raised the price of Suzuki Wagon R 2015 by 10,000 as well. The circular issued to all the dealers in this reference did not identify the reason for an increase.
Indus Motors had recently increased its car prices; the new car prices are effective from 1st May 2016, but that increase wasn’t due to weak Pakistan rupee against Japanese yen or other economic factors rather, Indus Motors introduced a host of much-awaited features in their cars.
Meanwhile in the Czech Republic, a new edition of Suzuki Swift was launched. A country where the latest Swift is already available in five variants: GL, GL/AC, GL/AC 4×4, GLX, Sport and the recently introduced Special Edition based on the GL/AC grade.
Mechanically, the Swift remains the same with the Special Edition getting 16-inch black wheels, roof spoiler, and the signature orange color but there are size more metallic colors that the buyer can choose from. Rest of the following stuff remains standard: foglights, LED daytime running lights, power windows and mirrors, remote central locking, cruise control, audio system supporting CD/MP3/USB and Bluetooth connectivity, parking sensors and heated front seats. Further, the safety features include ESP (Electronic Stability Program) and seven airbags.
