    Really nice interior.

    thnx god its launched
    The perfect words never crossed my mind
    Cause there was nothing in there but you
    I felt every ounce of me, screaming out
    But the sound was trapped deep in me

    All I wanted, just sped right past me
    But I was rooted fast to the earth
    I could be stuck here for a thousand years
    Without your arms to drag me out

    Something for you guys to ponder!!...The Aveo is also made in Gujarat , India!!.Check to see where the Pak market car is imported from!!.GM has a huge manufacturing/assembly facility comprising several plants in that state!.......lol!
    Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

    @nicatnite & @nightsurfer
    I give up.
    All the manufacturers besides toyota , honda and suzuki should pack up and leave. It isn't worth it wasting their time in this country.
    Be happy paying 9lak70k for a 1300cc Corolla Gli.

    " yes it has all the accessories but 80% buyers do not care about all this. "
    Just think abt tht statement for a minute. Shows how stupid 80% of the buyers are.
    Like i said before , they offer u more=no one will buy.
    Most of all safety features like ABS and airbag. Thts not a priority at all.

    many options available. Lancer, Liana, City and Corolla
    How can u even put Corolla , Lancer & City in tht list?!?!?!
    At tht price all those cars are 1300cc and are as plain as plain can be.
    However Liana can compete . 1.6 A/T , ABS etc for only 9lak29k.( Btw thts why ppl arnt buyin tht either)

    We are only happy paying 9 lak for an Xli.
    w0i dO p3oPL3 TyP3 L1K3 tH15 , or should i say , Di5?

    We all know how a Mehran and XLI feel, they are uncomfortable boxes one for 4 Lacs, the other for 9 Lacs, still no one will buy a loaded QQ for 4.5 Lacs and a Loaded Lancer/Sunny for 9 Lacs, for Chevrolet they will have to price it at 7 Lacs, yes im not kidding, only 7 Lacs not even 8 Lacs, no problem if make it 1300cc with handle windows etc. that will be the only way to beat Toyota/Honda/Suzuki !

    I don't think there's any need to define consumer behavior. Its better that we stick to what car offers and how does it compete with its rivals. Prediction based on ones own preferences ain't right.

    By the way I don't think that prices are charged as per customers thinking. Some say it should be around 8lac. Some say it should be around 7 lac. Some one would say it should be around 6 lac. Com'on yaar. It ain't the way of pricing products.
    As doc said ppl are happy to pay 970k for GLi. No body says anything then.

    @spiderman
    Its not that i wanna see GM on the roads only.
    As Storm bro said...The consumer is gonna have more and more choices and i've been mentioning this benefit since the arrival of Optra/Sunny etc. I wanna see Proton, Renault, KIA and other cars too on roads. It would result in the easiness at consumer end. People will have more choices. This will increase the Bargaining power of Customer and hence put pressure on companies to increase their quality and delivery period. This can abolish this Premium (OWN) phenomena too.

    By the way i'm happy too. WHY? Coz its now evident that Nexusain't gonna run anywhere. Its their third car in Pakistan. More would come. Hence FIAT problems won't be faced by Chevrolet owners.

    @Storm
    I totally agree with you brother. (Y)

    @doc
    I agree with you. You're right.

    hey interesting discussion

    I agree that here in pakistan when buying a new car ppl just look at the brand name and resale...!!

    If ure buying a brand new car for personal use i have never undestood why people give resale such importance I mean U should expct to use that car for at least 3 - 5 years before u sell it so then why not go for the option that gives u most bang for ur buck.

    Anyhow any thoughts comments ont he Proton Gen -2??

    I havent seen the Aevo yet but I have seen the Liana , Lancer and the Proton and My feeling is that the Proton is the best option
    1.6 cc--company fitted cng and tons of other features at 999.

    Does anyone have nay pros and cons regarding this car?
    or say a comparison of prton to lancer , liana, and aevo?

    Every newcomer besides suzuki, honda and toyota has to break in the market, make room for itself. Our market shows that ppl in general dont care for the features offered. So lets accept that trend rather than forcing them to enjoy the features... accept it that Xli and mehran and alto and cultus will be sold at alarming pace.

    What drives our market is only three things as I already said... economy, resale and cheaper parts... no luxuries or feartures... so offer this to the customer. Give CNG, buy back option, good warranty and reduce part prices, and the shell will be broken. Once the car is accepted in the market, then start offering the features... u go vice versa, u kill yourself.

    WE are the market. I really argue with ppl when they say "lancer ki market nai hai yaar mai nai khareed reha". We, the consumers make the market. Its about time that we stop buying crapy mehrans and local rollas or anyother suzuki. Stop thinking about cars as an investement. Id love to go for a lancer or anyother imported car since they are offering good value for money.
    Protons are infact pretty good looking as well considering i didnt like the shape of aveo that much. Lets say when next time one of us decides to buy a car, he will seriously exclude the corolla and suzuki from his option list and will go for lancer/sunny/aveo/(any model from proton)

    These will start selling eventually ... Lancer did so, people were loathing that car ... yet now they realize how good a package it is.

    Problem with Proton is their lack of advertising, yet to see many bilboards or any more adds in the papers. You need major advertising again and again to get these things to sell.

    You have to show our qoum the car again and again to get it in their heads.

    well i think its not only problem with pakistani mind
    its problem with those too who try to launch new cars
    we always give example of ppl not buying sunny proton or lancer but hey dont they buy santro???
    yup if car is good it can change ppl minds look lancer is now in quite a lot of no aft price reduced and similalrly hyundai santro
    so absurd to say ppl have no sense, you also have to blame the industrialists

    Its going to be while before it catches on.
    But in Pakistan u cant beat Toyota & Suzuki , impossible. Indus guys could increase the price of Xli and ppl would still be happy to buy it.
    So far only seen 1 Proton on the road. Orange Gen 2.
    I guess only a car stripped of all its features would sell. Without power windows and stuff.

    i saw the aveo at the chevrolet dealership in defence karachi. its got a 6-disc mp3 changer in the dashboard (like the new civic) with 6 speaker surround sound. sound was really good for a factory sound system. interior is the best in its class and the quality is much better than anything we have so far. wooden panelling all around. seats very comfortable. great car overall and looks nothing like the liana.
    Speed thrills and kills better than anything else.

    it seems nice car,
    but its engine should be around 1.3l, they are already offering optra 1.6,
    so no major difference left in both the models except price.
    overall a good ride to buy instead of liana, city & xli...
    but they should offer its starting price from 839,000 like lancer, city & liana...
    it require much time to come to RoadS......

    Protons are still inside the showroom......

    I think you mis-understood me. I am not saying that there is something wrong with the car. All I am saying is that we should not expect that the usual buyer will go for this car.

    I know all about the Pakistani market and I totally agree with you about Honda, Suzuki and Toyota.

    "How can u even put Corolla , Lancer & City in tht list?!?!?!"

    Because people will most definitely prefer these car over the Aveo. Its a shame but it is also the truth. Had this car been priced at around 800k with less features, it would have been a big big hit. Just like Liana.

    But, I still feel that the Mitsubishi Lancer is the best car in the price. We know that the Indian market is a competitive one and Lancer is expensive in India as compared to Pakistan. Check out Aveo's price in India.


    I think they should have launched the hatchback version with a 1.0L engine first. That would have crushed the Cultus and the Santro had it been priced equal to Santro.
