    Brother,
    Plz mention utlization of the 4x4.

    The 2 names you mentioned:

    Mini Pajero
    Price Range Rs:350 to 400K (Depends upon condition)
    4x4 Low & High Range (yes)
    Ground clearnce (Not recomendid for hard core 4x4)
    Seating capacity (2 adults only)
    Fuel 12km/liter but in ajk it will give u only 9 to 10
    In short its expensive,spar scracity in ajk,complicated engine,and accomodate only 2 adults.Back seats are only for kids under 12 years.

    Dihutsu Terrios Kid:

    Price tag is 600k approximatly
    4x4 low & high range (no) its afull time 4wd vehical.Not recomendid for any 4x4 track.Its spare are not available even in rwp/isb so there is no question that u will find the same in ajk.
    Ground clearnce (equal to a mehran)
    its a 1600cc vehical heavy on petrol will give you 7km/liter and a road car not a 4x4

    now suggestions from my side:
    keeping in view your price tag which is around 600k i guess & spare availablity in AJK.

    Suzuki Potohar/Jimny

    Its an accelent offroader with spares avilable all over the Pakistan.
    Cheep on maintenance & high resale.
    Dis-advantage..ride is bumpy..but it has proper 4x4.fuel avaerage 14km per liter

    Kia Sportage 2000cc diesel:

    Its a poweful diesel SUV with proper low & high range 4x4.A/c , power steering, serva breaks,auto doors etc.
    I dont know about spare availability in AJK but they are easily available in all big cities of Pakistan.
    Dis-advantage:
    Kia's engine is not reliable.Short life.Soloution swap her enjine with a toyota 3c 2200 cc turbo diesel & Kia will take you every where in ajk.And personaly I dont like kia sportage but diesel engine torque is always better than petrol ones specialy in hilly areas where u need more power.And Toyota 3c Turbo diesel is a very powerful & fuel efficent engine.It will give you a cost of about Rs:6 per km in AJK.

    Plz specify the use of the required vehical & your pocket size than I will be in a better position to advice you.
    Stay well

    @guyfromkashmir
    excellent review by offroad , parts availability of mini pajero and terios kid will be a big question.

    a minor correction "Terios kid" is 660 cc , and simply the "Terios" also known as toyota cami first generation is 1300 cc and second generation is 1500 cc. they r comfortable and have a car like drive but i think not good for hard offroading .

    as offroader bro had said tell us what is yr budget that will be helpfull to identify a vehicle for u.

    suzuki is a very good option do consider it.

    Default thx for the reaplies

    salam.....My budget is 600k .......i don't want to go 4 suzuki.....was loooking for a mini or terios.....but now after the review making mind for the sportage........
    how would u ppl describe this vehicle in terms of fuel consumption,reliability,maintenance cost,resale etc.......any further info would b appreciated......
    I already have had an experience of 97 mini,manual...it was great.yet fuel consumption was high,so had to get rid of it.......i neeed a vehicle which should atleast give about 10-11 kms in city......

    i know people might b laughing after reading alll the requirements....as a 4*4 vehicle delievering all these qualities is almost impossible to find on earth..i.e..6 lacs,reliable,fuel efficient,spare parts availability,resale.....but I think the above two review makers are not only co-operative but also knowing these machines....thx alot once again for the reviews.....Wasalam

    @guyfromkashmir,

    brother keeping in view of your location.Up model u want,low milage Kia sportage is the best answer.
    Although Jimny is a very good & capable offroader but sportage is a proper 5 door suv with all the modren comforts like a/c, heater, power steering, serva breaks, 4wd, big truck,optional roof rack (to carry your heavy lugages on long routs) and with a 2000cc turbo chged diesel engine.
    Try to find a low milage Kia sporatge.Normaly Kia engine start giving blow after 50,000 Km driven.If you find a Kia with a neat & clean body but a weak engine..Go for it ..it should be around 6 lakh (depends) upon the condition.
    There are two options available for engine convertions in Sportage

    1-Kia's own kabli petrol 2000 cc engine..

    I saw that engines easily available at chah sultan rwp for Rs:40,000/- & they will also adjust your old diesel engine in barter & it wilol save another 10 to 15k depends upon your old engines condition.Its a bolt on fitting engine so no alterations.same gear,same setting,better result.Kia Petrol engines are reliable & fuel efficent as well.More over you can also Install cng for further econmy.

    2-Toyota 3c Turbo 2200 cc Diesel Engine (with EFI)

    I love this engine.Its very powerful.Awsome pick up.Fuel efficeny.Per Km cost will be arount Rs:5 without A/c & Rs:6 with A/c in AJk.More over its spare is available every where in Pakistan even in Mir pur,jhelum you can find its spare.Bolt onn fittings,No alterations required.Only hosing of the gear will be changed & altered to get fitted with 3c.Top speed about 160km/h and diesel available every where.

    There are few very expert convertion specialist in rwp,Lahore & even in Jhelum whom can fix a 3c engine in sportage.

    Run your vehical on its original engine as far as u can.Once you feel its giving you trouble or performance is not upto the mark.You can swap your kia engine with above two discribed cases.

    But if you dont like alterations or a big vehical.

    Than go for a Jimny or for a Potohar..But in suzuki's case you have to compromise on cabin space as well as the ride comfort.

    choice & decision is yours..if you want my openion...Kia Sportage is the answer...go for it...
