    Default Attn gurus'!! Feedback on Kia Pride

    Salams all

    I wanted to know from the experts on this forum about Kia Pride. How good is the car in terms of drive, engine robustness, A/C (keeping in view the xtreme hot weather of lahore) and resale. SHould one consider it over alto 2001, as the price a guy is offering for the Kia is quite reasonable.

    thanks a lot bros
    w'salam

    i like KIA pride personally. its a better car than Mehran and Charade. Obviously the price is a big positive. People have complained about its resale and parts problem. but you are going to benefit from that resale because you arent buying it new. about the parts.. well.. i think you should ask your mechanic..

    Kia Pride is a lovely car...If i remember correctly its 1100cc and you can get a good one with CNG for around Rs.200,000 model would be 1996-97.
    One good point is that its really spacious at the back..the rear leg room i mean.

    Classic is the same...exact same dimensions just a Boot welded on.
