The discontinuation of Suzuki Mehran has been long overdue and it seems that Suzuki Pakistan is finally pulling the plug. According to the new notification issued to vendors, the production of the VXR Mehran variant will be stopped for good from April of the next year. Not to forget, in July 2018, the company issued a notification regarding the discontinuation of Suzuki Mehran VX variant from November 2018.

    Clickbait misleading title. They are just discontinuing the base model which is also not confirmed. Pakwheels news articles were also screaming that XLI Corolla is going to be discontinued, which also turned out to be fake news.

    Why would Suzuki kill the best selling car in Pakistan? Makes no financial sense.

    I will believe it when it actually happens.

  4. Read again previously the letter read discontinue of vx now the complete detail reads vx and vxr. With number of production

    According to the previous letter it was reported that mehran VX variants would be discontinued from November. The letter above also stated 0 production of vx from December and only vxr variants till March.

    My personal evaluation is that from December suzuki will offer mehran limited edition or mehran plus and from April 2nd quarter 2019 suzuki will bring in the awaited Suzuki Alto.

    One more thing mehran is no the best seller anymore WagonR sells more. MEHRAN is available under cost at all showrooms specifically after ban on non filers buying cars

  5. Dont get too excited about this news, see the discontinuation date, 1st of april, means you guys are getting fooled again :joy:
