    Default Liana, success or failure?

    Suzuki Liana was launched with very high hopes in Pakistan back in 2005 (started assembling in 2006) .. was also called as the best Suzuki ever produced in Pakistani market. Though its about 3 years Liana is present in the market but somehow unable to grasp the market. Although it offers so much in a comparatively low price tag, the worst quality issues from PakSuzuki are very frequently found in the Lianas. Rxi is the only version which is somewhat being sold. other versions like LXI, Eminent & Sport have seen a tough time here. Competitors like Xli and City are the other main factors.. but even globally Liana's life is too short.. it was launched in 2001 and was 'discontinued' globally in 2006, just when it started to assemble in Pakistan

    What could be the reason that this car (which seems very nice in its package) couldn't do well both locally and globally? or we should wait more and see if it gains its repo...??

    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

    i feel we are missing the point here. see in comparison the cars available in the same category regardless of the fact of poor resale, Liana as a Car is complete success. rather only successful car produced by Pak Suzuki. and if anyone thinks that resale should be the criteria than think again on that criteria mehran beats every other car and that halirious.

    Liana might be the best thing after the invention of the wheel but lets see how it stands out against the above three
    after the invention of wheel, it was City that was invented way before the discovery of Liana just kidding

    makamran,
    how do u find ur liana experience, also tell us about parts, as newton has mentioned that they are even more expensive than corolla, dont u think its one of the reasons why this car hasn't been so popular, cause normally people opt for a suzuki so they have to spend less in terms of spares n maintenance.
    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

    @adl:

    new model is always better then the previous one .

    @hash:

    Sorry to hear about the problem with your friend's liana but I have 3 liana's in my family and I own 1 myself too to date there is no problems with any 3 of them 1 is being used on petrol and the rest on gas they are doing perfectly alright, Liana and City are for 4 adults only rear seats are excellent for tall people as their head dont touch the roof and legs dont touch the front seat, the only thing I dont like about liana is expansive parts thats a real turn off now just imagine my AC bearing is making noise and have to change the bearing and tell you what its for 4500 bucks now thats a frekin expansive bearing (thoray aur paisay daal kar AC naya lagwa layta hoon )


    Its a nice car I wont call it a flop as its sales are higher then Baleno and looking at the bank interest rates I think it aint a flop but its not able to compete city in sales thats a truth for sure.

    and as far as xli / gli are concerned they are far better then city or liana and cannot be compared with compact sedan's of Pakistan.

    @newton: i have also never said liana is a a bad car, the QC sucks big time and we have many posts in PW related to it.

    As for XLI/GLI just coz they have big price tag does not mean they are better than City or Liana. All of them are equally comparable and have their pros and cons

    with the latest increase in car prices, Liana has become even more expensive, i doubt it can improve its sales in current scenario.

    i still don't understand why liana is suffering, despite having suzuki's name with it. is it something too bad that people don't consider buying it?

    LIANA is not a bad car. I owned one for more than a year and not faced any single problem in it. The drive on CNG (RXI-CNG) was excellent and very very economical. It was giving me Rs. 2.00/km (with AC in City). I think it is suffering due to bad quality of Mehran/Cultus.
    My experience of LIANA was very good. I have sold it around 2 months ago and still regretting my decision as the car was trouble less and does not even require any tunning in year.

    ^those who complain are not owners, they comment on their friends or families Lianas.

    see here for recent experiences of Liana owners:

    well Xli sells cause of the toyota label......and since we as a nation dont think we follow.......hence the market......
    even honda does not have the corrolla re-sale..........
    i have an 02 civic , and altis , a lancer and a liana 07.
    the altis other than the dashboard n leather steering ABS brakes pretty much sucks!

    the Civic is ok ... lancer is the best............

    point is liana has a good solid body...... yes the cng system makes clicking sounds sometimes u think the engines bout to break......(sorry i honestly thought they d given me a bad car initially) but its now at 40000 Kms.....and honestly its way way better than a baleno.

    When the baleno came v wanted margalla , cultus we wanted khybers, now the liana is out and we want balenos...?

    whats with us????

    hmmmmmmmmmm

    anyhow i dont find anything wrong with liana other than the suzuki logo!..........good luck

    ok that might be true, at least in my case it was my younger bro's liana RXI CNG and i drove it quite a lot and know about all its problems on just 5000km milage

    I have one more observation about Pak Suzuki cars:

    1. If you are getting bad reviews about Liana even from non-owners then that must be considered as well as how come we dont hear this about other cars in Pakistan??

    2. How come Pak Suzuki is making world wide discontinued cars in Pakistan??
    1. Mehran
    2. Cultus
    3. Liana
    4. Potohar
    5. Bolan
    6. Ravi
    7. Alto

    One thing more i want to mention here:
    After selling LIANA i have purchased a City IDSI.
    1. LIANA was much more stable on CNG as compared to City. Filling of CNG from different stations does not effect the performance in LIANA but this is not applicable in City case.
    2. P/steering of City is better than LIANA
    3. Build quality of both the cars is almost equal.
    4. LIANA offered much more features than the City have.
    5. Build quality of LIANA glove box was very poor.
    6. The pick of LIANA was much better than City.

    My conclusion: If you are a brand conscious than go for Honda City other wise enjoy more features in less price by buying SUZUKI LIANA.

    @retro:

    1. my younger brother's new City doesn't have a good suspension, the ride is bumpy, pillars too large, lousy cassette player, and small/thin tyres, real lousy brakes..my Behnoi got his new City 3 days ago, same issues. In fact, these are common issues among all City's, but owners do not complain as they are happy with owning a "Honda" brand!

    2. Because they are the best selling cars in Pakistan! and secondly, due to previous experience with latest models not being accepted by the masses eg. Cultus was initially flop, still some people prefer Khyber...similarly the transition from Margalla to Baleno to Liana has not been accepted easily....so why should they bother with introducing newer models?

    so i guess our people are happy with pre-historic crap - sir jee Khyber and Margalla and very nice cars and no one has ever complained about them

    Anyway coming back to City:

    1. Cassette player - ok it sucks so spend 2 to 3 k more and get a very nice DVD player. You cannot blame this on the car

    2. As for tyre, same case spend a few Ks and get good tyres - still this is Honda atlas not City's fault

    3. Pillar - yes i agree it is a blind spot - cannot argue in this case

    4. i dont see any issue with brakes - i got a steermatic which is much more powerful than IDSI and is auto and brakes are fine

    5. Quality wise Honda is better than other pak cars

    6. Yes suspension of Liana is better since i have driven it too

    Also spend a few more bucks and get a new engine, plus upgrade the suspension....

    Brakes are a known issue....my bro skidded his City and hit a bus..many similar posting on PW with similar problem:

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply_az_TopicID!81036~ForumID!30~pw.html

    Quality is bit better than Liana, but there is not such a big difference as perceived..

    As far as Khyber and Margalla are concerned..after 8-10 years people will be saying the same for Cultus and Liana...when they are discontinued and replaced by newer models.
