    Default Huge gap in car prices.

    It is strange that in Pakistan we have cars in the range of 18-20 lac like Civic, APV, Avanza etc. and then the next car range is in the 70-80 lac like Camry, Accord etc. etc.

    I guess one of the reasons is that that the the cars upto 18-20 lac are locally assembled and no cars of higher class are assembled in Pakistan.

    There really should be some choices available in the 25-30 and 30-40 lac range.

    We really have insane duty structure. If the imports are ever lifted, there would be more accords and less civic's.

    Local cars are done after civic which is around 19 lahks now.
    After that price range you`ll find imports..
    Accords and Camrys are imports and hence they have a high price.
    You can find alot of imports in the price bracket you mentioned,
    Accords, Mark X, different variety of benz and bmw, landcruisers, prados etc etc (but they are not brand new hence the price difference)

    Not brand new. Only 4K driven in UK. He imported it while shifting to Pakistan. Even i was in an impression that 82 is a bit high for used 5 series.

    He got a good deal if it was a personal import IMO, 4k driven in UK is next to brand new.
    usually uk imports are of high mileage/problematic cars with tempered meters.

    You guys are all talking about used imports. I was talking about Brand new cars. The fact that you can either buy a brand new car for 19 lac or for 70 lac nothing in between. This is really a stupid and insane duty structure by the Govt.
