    Default Suzuki internal news regarding Wagon-R and Alto

    From relevent internal " sources " in Pak suzuki .

    i have just been informed that pak-suzuki has successfully imported around 100 prototype WAGON-R 's for display purposes.

    they plan to assemble WAGON-R ( 4th gen ) , and launch it here in Pakistan .

    now ,

    the problem they are facing is that they want to fit ALTO engine in it , and then sell it ...

    but JAPAN has obsoleted that engine , and is unwilling to supply them the engine they want .
    so all their eyes are set on some " trade venture" that is expected to take place shortly between INDIA , and PAKISTAN .
    which will allow them to purchase the engines from MARUTI INDIA.

    it is likely that , either 4th gen WAGON-R would be launched , or the ALTO would be continued.

    final decision has not been taken yet .
    men who reject to be ruled by the law of God , are ruled by the law of tyrants .

    now some under under wrap car of your is imported too in 100 units. and you are sure too ...

    now the other option i was given was ALTO if they drop the WAGON-R

    seems like theres a third options ( yours) as well . lets see , this is getting interesting , as 2 WAGON-R's have already reached my friends-dealership . no announcement regarding display yet .

    lets see sirjee... i m not going to call you thing a GUP .

    but seriously speaking , its not a GUP here aswell , i have come back to PW after a long long time otherwise i have a proven track record here to leak relevant upcoming plans of Pak-suzuki here. all the best to you .

    and the funny part is , exactly like before , the first comment i got was " JHOOT " lol , best of luck .


    @ 2126

    1. it is for display purposes and booking orders. distributed throughout the dealerships.

    2. the cultus engine would cost them 70k more from JAPAN , and after duties would stretch its price beyond the 850k mark , so this is the reason that they dont want to fit a cultus efi engine in the alto.

    The statement regarding the hatchback is not true for every country, big examples are USA and canada where sedans like camry,accord,civic and nissan altima are in top and china where sedans like buick excell, VW lavida, VW jetta are at top and australia where sedans like the Mazda3,holden commodore,corolla are at top. Same is true for most of UAE and middle east where sedans sell more.

    ^ Cost of importing from India is much cheaper then China, That is what we need to understand first.

    The by road route is not as easy as we think, secondly India is making very much a like cars, But in China cars are different then that offered in Pakistan. In China FOB is considered to a port, While with India FOB can be arranged as upto Punjab and Sindh borders.

    Altho the trade is good it should happen, But still im the favour of localization and Paksuzuki should atleast be given copyrights for manufacturing of Suzuki engines in Pakistan.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    we already saw the fate of ADAM motors , this industry has reached way too far beyond the point that one can become totally independent in terms of production , and top- notch technology ,

    Even china is way far in this department and dependant on europeans and japs for technology , .. localization and that to in pakistan , and that too under these situations is a wishful thinking.

    I think that they will continue the alto
    As every one here in Pakistan s trying to resist the change
    Plus I don't think that paksuzuki has guts to even try to change a model with. New one

    Even if they replAce the alto with wagon r
    You all can estimate what would be the price set to it

    no updates , this is not happening anytime soon ,

    as the launch of both of these options is dependent upon the forthcoming trade policy with India.

    there might be a third option t0o , as Capsat is saying ( which might not be dependent upon Trade policy with India) and maybe you might see it sooner , if it belongs to the higher bracket of price i.e 1200k + .

    mean while in lower segment , just wait until some policy is announced , as soon as it is , you will probably see the car in displays around.

    I dont think it will be Alto K-10 as the K series engine is only available in india right now and trade agreements between Pakistan and India are yet to be finalized.

    I think they really need to have model and that too very quickly is alto is discontinued. Furthermore, they are not going to resist it as now all the engines needs to be euro-2 complaint and alto's engiine will not be euro-2 until or unless they fit it with a k10 engine from india.

    maybe a k-10 body with a locally available engine is what i'm thinking. don't rule out the D'Zire too but as you say, only if trade eases. let's see what really happens!
