What do you want us to test in the upcoming FAW Vizi hatchback test drive?!

V2 2

Al-Haj FAW Motors is slowly making ground in Pakistan. The first vehicles to arrive in Pakistan were the trucks and then in the passenger cars department, the XP-V and the Carrier followed by the FAW Sirius S80. A family van which we test drove.

FAW is perhaps the first automaker in Pakistan which has opened to the concept of automotive journalism and has provided us with cars to test drive just for you.

FAW V2 will actually be called Vizi in Pakistan and FAW, wants us to test drive the hatchback so bad, that they have agreed to lend us a press car for a couple of days so we can test it in every way possible and get you the best of information about it as we can.

But we’re frankly, quite new to this all and would like all of you to tell us what to check and test in the Vizi hatchback? So tell us in the comments about what you’d like to know.

    a drag race with its competitors handling review brakes acceleration parts availability reliability comfortability build up quality how u feel when u drive it more than 500 kms in one go fuel tank efficiency does it worth the money built up quality

  • Rohail Khan

    Road noise, Cabin noise, dont forget to test the car on roads with potholes!! n test the car on mountain areas to see if car is capable of climbing with the four passengers easily or struggling!! mileage with & without Air Conditioning,
    Recent heavy rains in Punjab have caused the rain water to enter in da car, so check that as well if the car is properly insulated against water getting in! hard braking on normal roads to see the braking distance!

  • Ali Ehsan

  • Sulaiman Lalani

    when i scrolled up the page the moment i saw the car in less than a sec , you know what i thought in mind “ADAM REVO” Unleashed 😛

  • sulaiman Lalani, i respect your thoughts, but i believe this is the best Value for money comapred to any Hatch in Pakistan . it consist Dual airbags, ABS with EBD, Anti theft, Keyless entry, Alloy Rims, 1.3 VCTI engine Euro 4 and much more. its fuel average is 15.7 km/ litres. this car is too common in South Africa and South America now.!
    its invoice price is 1049000 . i have driven this upto 160km/h , trust me its a beauty,!

    road grip with stock tyres
    fuel economy
    ground clearance

  • kamran usman

    1. Fuel economy
    2. Sales and Service network
    3. Can we have a stripped down version with no airbags, no safety, no nothing for less money? I mean, it will help us compare this vehicle with the rest of Pakistani vehicles more easily then 😉

  • ahmar

    I think you can get a check list from any international website who do test drives.

    Onething you must mention to V2 makers is that we hope they get success in selling their car but once they do they should not keep on selling same model for decades like we have mehran and cultus here. They must bring in new shape every 4/5 years (which is the normal life cycle for any model)

  • Ausaf Ur Rahman

    THE MOST important thing is ” what ever they provide either truck or car ” do provide the after sales SUPPORT, this is even a key factor for any low grade car model i.e. Mehran.

    Other things i.e. performance, reliability, safety etc came aside because we have Cherry QQ and in past it was ADAM’s car, all were flopped due to after sales support.

  • Arsalan

    I’m very much interested in knowing how it performs on the highway, i’m not talking about top speed, but what speed can it maintain easily, like can it maintain 100km/h without any noise, plus do also check the cabin noise and sound proofing.

    please do observe visibility, is the bonnet visible, for example if the parking space is small you need to have clear front and rear visibility to be able to park properly (unlike vitz and city which have extremely poor front visibility).

    Air conditioning, and how much load does it put on the engine, how much the acceleration is affected when the air conditioning is running.

    Leg space in the rear seats, please compare it with 2008 Mira. Plus the overall comfort level of the car.

  • Muhammed Hassan

    I’ll add
    Rear Seats leg space.

  • Asad Iqbal

    Nice car. However either by airbags there should be navigation system.

  • Asad Iqbal

    Specs

  • Hassam

    Emphasis on the Fuel Economy Aspect

  • Muhammad Talha Iqbal

    dont do much just compare it with the low grade same priced Suzuki Mehran n you will know the difference….

  • OJ

    Build quality, recently I had experience with a V3, the features, design of the car were very good, but where it lacked was build quality, the quality of the interior and the finish of the car
