Suzuki Ciaz Can Be A Real Threat To Honda City In Pakistan

hondacity vs suzukiciaz

The automotive industry in Pakistan isn’t that diverse and has little to offer to its customers. The three giants have hardly had any disturbance from any other competitors, as whoever came in was washed out due to various factors; lack of after sales support, less know-how of mechanical and electrical systems, low resale value, etc. Toyota, Suzuki, and Honda, all Japanese origin do share similarities and have offerings almost alike. Suzuki (Pakistan) being more of a small cars expert, like Mehran, Cultus, and Wagon R to suit the needs of middle-class families whereas Toyota and Honda have always been in competition.

Toyota Pakistan has competed with Honda City and Civic with its highest seller, Corolla. Though Toyota Corolla (Grande/Altis) does make sense competing with Civic, Corolla XLi/GLi doesn’t seem to go head to head with City, primarily because one car can’t perfectly compete in two different categories/classes. But it still seems to work this way in Pakistan at least. Although Suzuki has not stepped up after its not-so-popular Baleno and Liana against City and Corolla, it can still compete with Honda City if they bring their newest addition Suzuki Ciaz to Pakistani market. The all new Suzuki Ciaz looks pretty much like the New Honda City (2016-17) in shape and has decent features. It comes in two variants (petrol and diesel), with 20-28km/l fuel efficiency, 1.4L and 1.3L engine capacity, respectively. It does look pretty classy and has a great set of features to offer, at least in India.

Suzuki Ciaz could also prove to be a sneaky competitor for Toyota Corolla XLi and GLi. In Pakistan, when it comes to choosing Honda City and Toyota Corolla (XLi/GLi), the decision is made primarily on the basis of personal choice, but that decision is backed by a number of factors as well. For Instance, Toyota is known for solid suspension, overall durability and generally cheaper maintenance, whereas Honda is known for better engines and features. However, Suzuki Ciaz could fit in amongst the rivals and can create better competition for its class.

    Nothing will happen, This is Pakistan. A land of Idiots.You people do not use your resources in Balochistan,you people and your politicians, all are corrupt , including Shareefs party and Imran’s party….You cannot beat us , beacuse your country is a perfect example of INDEPENDENCE MIS-ADVENTURE (silent message from India). Look how we are growing in our education, industry and technology, 70 percent of your people are Drug addict , your literacy rate in decreasing day by day. Your country has almost been sold to IMF.You cannot progress, but will lay down against INDIA and ISRAEEL.

    “Independence misadventure”?

    Muslims voted for Congress in 1935, rather than Muslim League/Jinnah. Then Congress tried “ghar wapsi”, forcing Muslim children to recite Hindutva slogans and Hindu chants in schools. My Grand-ma remembers being told to sing “bande-matram”. Muslim children were rebellious though, used to change it to “bande mootaram”(man urinating).

    1935 was the first time we saw what Hindu rule would be like. And after that, Muslims everywhere voted for Muslim League, even in UP and provinces with tiny Muslim minorities, who had no hope of joining Pakistan.

    Baloch are patriotic people who chose to join Pakistan willingly. An Indian-funded insurgency has been CRUSHED there, and BLA leaders can’t even visit Balochistan, they can only talk talk talk in New Delhi, they have no power in Balochistan.

    India is not one nation. It has over 300+ languages, unlike China, the PM in New Delhi cannot even be understood in all of India, regardless of what language he uses. In southern regions, they didn’t even let Modi make speaches in Hindi, they told him to either speak to them in English or Tamil, but not Hindi, such is the level of hate. India is not only oppressive towards every single neighbor(from Nepal to Sri Lanka, Bangladesh to Pakistan and China), but also very oppressive towards it’s own groups. They desecrated the Sikh Golden Temple, the Muslim Babri Masjid, and numerous Churches.

    These days they’re trying to “ghar wapsi” non-Hindu groups and force Sikhs, Christians and Muslims to convert “back” to Hinduism. Just makes India very ripe for civil war. Pakistan is way too nice, Benazir Bhutto decided to help her classmate Rajeev Gandhi, and Benazir sent Aitzaz Ahsan to India to give a list of Khalistan movement leaders, and helped India overcome that. If India funds TTP terrorists who bomb schools and parks in Pakistan, Pakistan should help India feel the burn by funding Khalistan and Maoists in Chattisgarh and the “seven sister states”, not to mention the south where there is immense resentment against Indian heavy-handed oppressive measures.

    If India wants to be strong, it should treat it’s own people better. Otherwise, their frustrated people would be ideal candidates to recruit by foreign agencies.

  • Kashif Akbar

    Mr. Rajesh , have you forgotten how indra gandhi screwed you people in your province. you also tried to have a INDEPENDENCE MISADVENTURE, but you people could not do so despite of your full efforts. just ask your relatives who come Pakistan to panja-sb, and how they find and comment about us. atleast Mr. Kaur you must read the history of your own tribe in india. we can take care of ourselves very well. dont worry about us.,look into your own province. only a group of a few soldiers from PAK take hold of kargil in few days and your nations cries aloud about it., and its USA who saves you. come on , dont be a child , grow up and face the realities….

  • SSG

    @ Rajesh

    This reminds of a story. When I was in Abu Dhabi I met a Indian who complaining about how badly arabs treat them. I said dont worry the arabs mistreat Pakistanis also.

    So he quickly became happy and said really?

    I said yes, because the arabs confuse us for you indians.

  • SS

    Haha…take it easy guys…I am an indian..though I don’t share the same opinion as my friend here..I do think the Pakistani automotive industry is lagging behind ours…taking for example..suzuki here has a lineup of almost 11 different models all being updated from time to time…though I don’t know the intricate details of the policies..I think if in the future trade between the two countries develop..it will be possible for y’all to buy newer, better cars at an affordable price.

  • Mohammad Mobeen Ashfaq

    I love India 1st country then I love others….2nd we have our emaan and wwe r Muslim we don’t need any more things for our heaven and I m not saying u bad but in India I don’t like 2 things 1 alcohol is open in ur country 2nd sex is open in ur county like raped……….etc sorry bro u r Indian or wt ever I love India

  • Pak Warrior

    No future trade with India is possible till India

    1) Stops terrorism in Baluchistan & Karachi

    2) Settle the Kashmir dispute

  • No abuse

    Indians get abused more. Filipino and Bangladeshi too.

    But many abusers (could be Arab or non-Arab) behave well with Pakistanis because Pakistani don’t take abuse. It is nearly impossible to abuse a Pakistani in any manner without suffering retaliation. Many managers prefer Indians, Bangladeshi and Filipino because they tolerate a lot of abuse in the form of overwork, verbal abuse and even physical beatings, whereas it has been seen that they behave well with Pakistanis or even refuse to work with (because they know if they get out of control in a tantrum, Pakistani is going to stand up to them).

  • Smokingaces

    Please Pakwheels, I am so fed up of “this could be a real threat” and “that could be a great alternative to that car” type articles. Please give us some real news if there are going to be any new car launch in Pakistan anytime soon.

  • Hassan

    Fair Enough what you said, but you forgot to mention one thing about India i.e “Growing in Rape”

  • Shahid Mehmood

    true i agree with you, come on there are thousands of best cars in the world. they can be a threat to any car in Pakistan from Mehran to Civic. But where we are standing, this never gonna happened what so ever is posted in this regard on Pakwheels. so its Pakwheels responsibility to eliminate these posts in future.

  • Arshad

    Not all cars in India are of High quality. There is always a big difference between Pictures and Reality. Pakistan is producing quality…. Even our cars have no advancements, but still what is it, is quality. in 1980 Mehran was a quality and still it is ..But it is having no insulations and cosmetics. Just change interior in Mehran , and introduce it’s automatic version , ABS and power steering, Mehran will get up a huge applause for next 20 years. I have seen trend of people preferring FAW V2 over Cultus, Wagon-R and 660 cc cars.

  • Fazal

    But the price tag should not be more than 14 lacs. A usual middle class family can afford a car of 14 lacs in Pakistan. after savings of 3 years.

  • Fazal

    EAST and WEST, Pakistan is Best , India should be divided into independent countries.

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    Yep, that’s why cars made in India are exported to more than 100+ countries around the world!
    You keep counting how many Pak cars are used around the world other than Pak!

  • AmmaRz

    Gay pride

  • Shahid Mehmood

    Do you really think Mehran is a quality car? My friends Mehran’s speedometer got faulty just within one year. you call it quality list can be go on and on. Mehran is an overall outdated design should be changed now. the specs you told for mehran with these specs PakSuzuki will ask for 14 lacs for Mehran

  • Ahmed

    No it will never be a threat because this car will never be launched here haha

    Pak Suzuki has not announced that they are launching this car (for that matter any car for now) in Pakistan. The whole article is based upon one big “IF”

  • H__3

    Do you really want him to list down 100 countries for you? He is right btw.. I have seen Indian automobiles and bikes in at-least 6 countries in Africa. Bajaj bikes and Tata trucks especially are quite popular. Finally, a message from a Pakistani truck :”Mehnat Kar – Hasad Na Kar”

    i know einstien india exports cars, but to definitely not to 100 countries. there is a difference between being confident and arrogant ahole. sadly quite a few indians are suffering from later. tell me another message from pakistani trucks.

    I am a Pakistani and I hear this kashmir nonsense. I don’t know a single kashmiri who wants to be part of Pakistan. They want to use Pakistan to get their independence and then make their own little bangladesh. For over 60 years we have fought for a people who want to do nothing with us. Give them kashmir so they can handle those thankless bastards. Spend your money on education. Aap k paas balochistan hai wahan hee kuch kar laytay? nai pahari ilaqa chahyay uski zameen say tou jaisay tail aur sona nikalta hai! If we give kashmir both countries could prosper in unimaginable ways!

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    These are the countries India exported automobiles either in CBU form or CKD form, though literally not 100 as I said earlier but 94 countries!
    In 2015-16, India exported 35,73,806 automobiles in 2014-15, exact numbers for 2015-16 are still not yet officially released. The numbers are expected to go up by atleast 7-9% over previous year.
    India is the third largest automobile exporter of Asia beating China.
    A little googling won’t hurt fingers! 🙂

    P.S – I apologize if have hurt someone’s feelings here!

  • ciitronian

    There should be a healthy competition in the automotive industry to provide the best vehicles to its customers of all kinds. Other brands, Volkswagen, FIAT, KIA many others should be in Pakistan, but these BIG three (Toyota, Honda, Suzuki) do not allow other brands to get here…………… So THESE type of CARS and not for PAKISTANIzzzz … Pakistaniyooo tum loggg pechly 20 saaal sy aaj tk aik hi jaisee mehran k laiq ho 😉

  • NIKHIL KULKARNI

    Your reply is dumber than his argument…

    India lies on the Indian Plate, the northern portion of the Indo-Australian Plate…The country is situated north of the equator between 8°4′ and 37°6′ north latitude and 68°7′ and 97°25′ east longitude.

    Point being, the expanse of the country is quite wide and the intensity of suns rays which determines the melanin content of the skin, which in term determines the darkness varies across length and breadth of the country…

    Point being, not all Indians are dark.

  • Asimzmn

    munib BC, i can copy paste a list like that , no source listed , typical indian IT con job. and the exports you aholes are braging about are from 100% foreign owned companies using india as a cheap production base, since you slumdogs will work for any thing. MC brag when “Indian” car companies are exporting to “100+ countries”. Hyundai , Nissan, Toyota, VW etc, since when these are “Indian” companies??? MFers want to argument just for the sake of argument!

    oh bhai yeh cheap indian indian bakwas na karo pls. it maybe true they live in slums but their banya is very clever. it has gotten most out of poor average indian. but last not least they r sincere to their country not like noora who has factories in india but loves to be a pm of pakistan.

  • AbdulB1

    yea true Pakistanis due to beef eating habit behave differently.

  • AbdulB1

    well some indians I met are gorray like we have in our country but others from south are dark as african. India is such a huge country so it is expected.

  • AbdulB1

    thanks but no thanks I would prefer to avoid indian imported ckd. why? because india has protected its own auto industry by that measure. they dont care but put 200% tax on import of any vehicle new or used.

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    Ha ha, can’t help but laugh! Typical ego problem again. I can list atleast 15 Indian automobile companies, but can you just name one Pakistani automobile company in which all R&D is done in Pakistan let alone export to any other country? Importing from china and rebranding is not considered.
    I’m not asking for car companies, just 1 automobile company which has full fledged R&D and production line in Pak!
    The answer will be a big NO, right? Then STFO and mind your work!
    Oh you want source – check in SIAM website idiot!

  • How could they know whether a manufacturer is going to launch a new car or not?

  • Asimzmn

    Gandu, you were bragging, so stick to the point. and about ego, you assholes cant get over Pakistan since 47 thats why regardless of what you MF’ers do you have to compare it to Pakistan. i caught you loud mouthing and bragging and put your slum dog ass to you place, and then you could not find any thing better and started comparing Pakistan. way to go dickhead. i mean dot head.

  • Sanjay Natarajan

    Ha ha ha…who is bragging here MF? Its pakis like you are comparing yourselves with us ineach and everything…. I asked can you list a Pakistani company, and you were blabbering something stupid.
    Just name a automobile company mother fucker or else shut the fuck off and keep bragging!
    If you don’t have even a two wheeler company, then admit it loser!

  • Asimzmn

    BC no one is comparing Pakistan to india u dumfuck! i caught your “indian companies exporting cars to 100+countries” bullshit and now you rand is running around like head less chicken.
