    Default Toyota VIOS 1.3 launching in Pakistan

    MOD EDIT: Please continue your discussion in the topic already running:

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=246260



    Indus Motor Company (IMC) have a plan to launch Toyota VIOS 1.3l in Pakistan. They'll discontinue their XLI brand which lacks basic features. GLI will be upgraded to new 1.5l engine. And Altis Grande will remain their top of the line model. So, base model of corolla will be GLI 1.5L

    Currently, IMC testing VIOS and Yaris on Pakistani roads.


    In future, following will be the lineup of IMC

    Yaris 1.3L hatchback MT/AT
    Toyota VIOS 1.3 MT/AT
    GLI 1.5 MT/AT
    Altis Grande 1.8 MT/AT

    They have to discontinue it. People will buy VIOS more than XLI. VIOS will have basic goodies which XLI doesn't have.

    Then nobody will buy VIOS. IMC have to ditch one of their brand and that would be XLI.

    Selling one car with a range of engines and trims is more profitable; coz 90% parts fit every rolling unit and they don't need to run separate assembly lines. Compare this to making two completely different cars with two assembly lines, and making different parts for each car, like Honda does for City/Civic.
    Why'd they do that? Why'd they want to fall into trouble of making two cars when one is doing the job perfectly well? It'd cut them Corolla sales and kill their profits.

    Let's consider XLi: their favorite son. To an average Corolla fan (cough-paindu-cough) it's a Chitti to'orii Corolla, it is the same as any Corolla, be a Grande or XRS. Taxi drivers buy it coz people love to hire it. Fleet owners buy it coz it's cheaper and simpler. Zamidar sahib buys it coz it's Caroula gaddi. Now imagine dropping it, what'd they all go after then?

    It's an iconic car, waddi gaddi that every peasant and their mother knows, adore, and dream about. No one knows what sort of vegetable a Grande' is, or what season does Altis grow. It's the word XLi (or formerly 2D) that turn their heads around.

    Without any authentic sources its just a rumor and sir uiv makes a very valid point.They wont kill their profits.Thats all they care about
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    Bro, IMC starting to get complains about XLI. So, they only ditching XLI not the whole brand.

    Another reason is that, IMC want to boost Grande sale. They will follow Honda Atlas policy now to bring different cars for 1.3 and 1.8 categories.

    Waise, sabhi ajeeb log hain. Pehle bol rahay thay ke IMC ko 1.3 category ke liye alag se model daina chahye to boost the sale of Altis. Ab woh jab ker rahay hain toh udher bhe masla ho raha hai.
