    Question LIANA 1.6 AUTOMATIC - Opinion wanted

    Dear Friends,

    I need opinion on getting a LIANA 1.6 AUTOMATIC, fully loaded, model 2010, unregistered, from an authorized Pak Suzuki dealer, EX Stock, almost in the price of SUZUKI SWIFT DLX (almost). I will drive this vehicle on Petrol (No CNG). Am also getting a 2 year / 40K km warranty with this.

    My earlier ride was a Corolla GLi 2007 which was also driven on Petrol only.

    Due to certain financial limitations, unfortunately, I cannot go for a Corolla GLi (not even XLi and City to be honest), so I had narrowed down to LIANA (1.3L V-URV and SWIFT). I was more inclined toward SWIFT but now with this new option on the table (1.6 AUTO) I am more inclined towards it.

    I need opinion on whether this car is reliable...I need to use it as a daily runner and frequent motorway trips and occasional trips on national highways. This car will be with me for the next 4 years minimum.

    I cannot go for imported vehicles so please do not recommend the likes of VITz and BELTA etc.

    Good or bad personal experiences with Liana in general and 1.6 AUTO in particular will be more than welcome.

    I need to make up my mind in a couple of days

    Thanks in advance...

    Keep your friends close but your enemies closer...

    We have 1.6 auto liana. 2006
    Dear its imported car not local. but as compare to local liana, 1.6 is too good.
    successful on petrol, not in CNG.
    but resale value is lower of all liana local or imported.

    Bhai jaan,

    Kia ho rahaa hai, another thread.
    I already told you to go for swift.Best value for money and above all amazing drive experience.
    As for liana it has very bad resale and annual sales of liana tell the whole story, this year uptill now only 383 lianas have been sold at an avearge of 38 cars/ month. It is a drop of -54% from last year(http://www.pama.org.pk/statistical-i...les-production). Liana annual sales are dropping at an astonishing rate and below is the year wise drop from its launch(http://www.pama.org.pk/images/storie...rical-data.pdf_):

    Year-1(2005-2006) Total sales: 4571
    Year-2(2006-2007) Total sales: 6076(132% increase over previous yr)
    Year-3(2007-2008) Total sales: 2983(49% decrease over previous yr)
    Year-4(2008-2009) Total sales: 851 (72 % decrease over previous yr)
    Year-5(2009-2010) Total sales: 1025(120% increase over previous yr)
    Year-6(2010-2011) Total sales: 480(54% decrease over previous yr)

    The big question is why a car will fall flat to half in its 3rd year and to one sixth only in its 4th year and will almost stop selling in 5th & 6th year. Also liana is a car which has been discontinued worldwide since 2007 and Pakistan and china are only 2 countries where it is in production.In pakistan its fate is sealed for exit very soon.It has been replaced by SX4 since 2007 worldwide only six years after its launch. Why would u like to ride a sunken ship ?To me i decided against it solely on basis of its shape.Rest is upto you to deicde.My vote is for swift.

    Paa Jee,

    Another thread because it is a big decision for someone who buys cars every 4 years and have to stick with the purchase for the next 4 years. I want to do the due diligence.

    I know you are the brand ambassador of Suzuki Swift Pakistan I hope you know that Liana 1.3 and Swift 1.3 share the exact same engine (M13A). However, I am opting for Liana 1.6 Eminent. You cannot compare that with Swift, especially in the price I am getting it. For an idea, I am getting 1.6 L Automatic Liana for about the same price as a Swift DLX. Now what am I getting extra? Much more powerful 1.6L engine, Auto Transmission, 16" Alloys with Bridgestone tyres, a wonderful car entertainment system (Touch screen Sony DVD and stuff), a big trunk that can actually accommodate your swift if it wanted to

    As I have mentioned and you know very well, I am not concerned with resale or fuel economy, I think LIANA offers much more "Value for Money" than Swift or any other car for that matter.

    Bro I have to buy a brand new car and that too on lease. If I had this much cash in hand, I would not be considering Lianas or Swifts or even Corollas or Citys Sky's the limit but I am extremely limited in options due to the above reasons.

    Paa ji,

    LOL at brand ambassador .Yup seems like i am becoming one !!

    Swift has an upgraded M13A engine but same engine doesn't make a car good or bad, companies use same engine in many cars but the success or failure of car depends on its design, performance,looks and handling(Swift having same engine as liana but swift is a hit and liana a flop)same is case of vitz, its engine is also used in 6 other toyota cars but only vitz is a super success. By the way swift also has brdgestone tyres with alloy rims.Swift of course is a hatchback so u can't compare the trunks but it is shorter than both corolla and city.What price u r getting for the car, if you are getting same price of a 1.6 sedan as a hatchback then the desperation of the suzuki people to sell this car is clear.I also learnt that its production has been stopped then how r u getting it?

    Even if you ignore all that what will you do of its legendary shape and looks specially the rear lights.If you wanna go for sedan then sunny can be a better option than liana.

    It's a dealer in Karachi who has only one car left (supposedly). Price is Rs. 1175K. Still figuring out how to make it happen.

    Go for it. Liana's value will increase once it will be discontinued by Pak Suzuki. So go ahead, buy it. InshaALLAH when you will sell it after 4-5 years, it will give you good value and you will never regret your decision of buying a powerful 1.6L car which is way better than underpower GLi and City.

    Liana 1.6 Auto Eminent doesnt have M13A, it has an M16A engine producing 105 bhp.

    There is no upgradation in the M13A of the swift, its the same Nut to bolt!! Just the engine cover is changed. its a cheap trick suzuki is using in pakistan to tell people its a different engine cus people here had a wrong perception about the M13a being a bad engine.... one Suzuki dealership guy even told me Pak suzuki has changed the material of Engine Block and Head (LMAO) heheh that means pak suzuki are now redesigning engines :p. ITS absolutely same engine.

    Liana 1.6 Auto Eminent is NOT imported, Its a locally manufactured car.
