    Default Whats the future of KIA vehicles in pakistan?

    Its been a time since Kia (DEWAN) launched its 3 new models Picanto, Rio & New Sportage but they seem to be getting even worse response as compared to their previous breed of Classic, Spectra & Sportage... have only seen a couple of Rio and just one or two Picanto..

    how many pakwheelers own the new breed of Kias?? why arent they getting popular, is it the price? the quality?? or the after sales service which makes it so unpopular??
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    first of all Price factor,
    then after sales factor...

    Its the price and inflow of imported vehicles. Best seller is sportage and thats it.

    but spectra & classic both were very good performers initially but this model range of rio & picanto hasnt started to 'perform' yet even its more than a year since they entered the market. i think they'r way too over priced, specially picanto, a 7.85 lac hatch when liana is available for 7.94
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    In my opinion, its got nothing to do with Dewan. Its consumerism, which has driven the Pakistani population to be SO image conscious, that they'd rather eat out of a trash can than not have a nice car. Therefore, Hondas and Toyotas, being larger brands, are chosen over Kia and others.

    Price, Shrice. Bahanay.
    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on.

    please don't talk about the future, it scares me.


    i am too worried about the future of Pakistan to think about the future of Kia in Pakistan
