    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

    to me, the expensive maintenance is one reason because of which liana has not been that successful. parts are even expensive than a corolla and to afford a liana means to spend something even more than a corolla. suzuki is always prefered by those who look at their pockets first, liana is definitely not meant for those

    @newton: yaar yes City is expensive than Liana but why are you calling it featureless, what does Liana has that city does not have??? i know there are things but it might be 2 lines instead of 2 pages like u mentioned earlier

    if you really wanna call something feature-less and high priced then XLI takes the cake!!!!

    PS: please do not dis-respect archon2001

    i am still waiting for the long list of features

    every local auto assembler is ripping people off, here are the top 3:

    1. toyota
    2. suzuki
    3. Honda

    Some of the features which City lacks as compared to LIANA (considering almost same price models. i.e IDSI and RXI-CNG):
    1. SiS CNG kit (only this worth around 65K, correct me if i am wrong)
    2. Mp3 player with remote
    3. 4+2 speakers in LIANA whereas City has 2
    4. Side skirts in LIANA
    5. Outside temperature
    6. Key less entry
    7. Engine Immobilizer
    8. more seat belts in LIANA
    9. 14" (185) tires in LIANA whereas 13" (165) in City
    10. LIANA is 16 valve and City is 8 valve

    If you compare IDSI with LXI (without CNG)
    then
    Remove SiS CNG kit from the list and add
    1. Alloy
    2. ABS

    1. toyota
    2. suzuki
    3. Honda
    @retro i would like to differ with u again

    1. suzuki
    2. toyota
    3. honda

    toyota (indus motors) can be ripping off only in the case of xli & cuore.. paksuzuki has a never ending list
    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

    @retro:

    compare the list which a pak wheeler just sent trust me if u get these features in a car after wards you will end up spending atleast 100,000 bucks thats my point and as far as the quality is concerned yar liana is almost 100,000 cheaper then city (include all the features too) thoree c kharab quality chaltee hay

    and yea I dont wanna dis respect any body but do wanna reply to what people say

    @archon

    I definitely know what I am saying and to whom since you are a BUZURG (elderly citizen) I dont wanna abuse you or any thing and if you want me to become like cyles with you it wont be a big deal.

    and by the way your reply shows your mentality and back ground I dont wanna say any thing, may Allah Help you

    and yea another thing my car may not be the best and it may be a flop but since I have paid my hard earned money to buy this therefore there is nothing better then my car. I hope u got my point hopefully

    here is my friendly response:

    Some of the features which City lacks as compared to LIANA (considering almost same price models. i.e IDSI and RXI-CNG):

    1. SiS CNG kit (only this worth around 65K, correct me if i am wrong)
    - Agreed it is an awesome kit with as Newton and other liana owners have pointed out is full or problems but again the Kit is really advanced


    2. Mp3 player with remote
    - I remember my bro's LIANA RXI player could not play .WMA format - Player is awesome but you cannot consider it an advantage - Yes i agree city comes with stupid cassette player - exchange it and spend around 6 to 7000 to get a really good MP3 player

    3. 4+2 speakers in LIANA whereas City has 2
    - again just shashka, spend 1 to 2000 and get another pair for city


    4. Side skirts in LIANA
    - cosmetics


    5. Outside temperature
    - yea liana has that so what?

    6. Key less entry
    - spend 1,500 and get it installed for city as well


    7. Engine Immobilizer
    - yes liana has that agreed

    8. more seat belts in LIANA
    - yes but do we actually use them in pakistan

    9. 14" (185) tires in LIANA whereas 13" (165) in City
    - yes liana has


    10. LIANA is 16 valve and City is 8 valve
    yes but whats the point? - we all know IDSI is a econo box and is not at all a performance machine

    If you compare IDSI with LXI (without CNG)
    then
    Remove SiS CNG kit from the list and add
    1. Alloy
    2. ABS

    - yes but then i can bring in steermatic in the picture as well


    seeing this i can say the only thing liana has that means something (conserding other variants as well):

    1. ABS
    2. SIS Kit
    3. i am including this that liana has better and more comfortable suspension

    ok now i will be very factual and mention few things city has:

    1. EPS - Electric power steering
    2. CVT - better than conventional auto transmission
    3. large trunk
    4. Better road grip and handling (Liana is even higher than city)
    5. drawers below rear seats
    6. 2 glove boxes
    7. much quiter engine and i have seen city with more than 70000km on the meter and did not require any maintenance expect oil change

    so we should not compare cosmetics and rather practical things, now since u brough LXI in the picture I will bring steermatic:

    1. 7 speed mode (name any other car in the price range in pak that has it)
    2. powerful VTEC SOHC engine which produces equal or more BHP+torque than any 1.6 engines in pak cars
    3. 7 spoke allows with 15" low profile tyres

    @retro:

    aaj chutee hay ya office mein ? well me sittin at office waiting for the supply and then have to leave for wholesale market and theres gonna be too much rush over there

    anyways lets compare steermatic with eminent

    ABS 15 Inch alloys (new model) dvd dunlop tires auto transmission (lacks trip tronic stuff),

    CVT is of no use in manual transmission (rxi and lxi) and dont know about EPS so wont comment on that but its a plus for city.

    base model city does not have rear under seat drawers it lacks the insulation under the bonnet where as liana has it liana has an equally quite cabin and which is way bigger (its a practical thing) and well city has a big boot but still liana has a big one too but not as big as city.

    road grip well try my liana on the bends it has dunlops trust me u gonna forget city grip city comes with bicycles tires yar.

    but over all city is a good car and desi blonde babes really looks good driving it where as in liana u cannot see the chick inside due to the abnormal height of the car

    Like always no suzuki fails because its considered as a upper middle class car . No suzuki has ever failed ALTO MEHRAN name it i hardly see any suzuki car going out of business


    Liana is a cheap Luxury car for our country just like Vauxhaull is called as the Luxury for the poor same goes for Liana
    and since it has a SUZUKI badge to it that means every bad thing is covered up

    Suzukis goal is making profits and there is nothing in world called as LIANA SPORTS . Suzukis are meant to be 1.3 in Pakistan.Only reason for discontinuity of a particular model is rivalry with other brands and as i wrote before Suzuki's target has always been upper middle and middle class so thats why it never was and never will go out of business

    @archon:

    buzurg sahab look who's talking about childish behaviour you are the one who started this Retro and I may have opposite likings but we never had a fight on any thing rather we discussed our cars and you started getting personal, and am definitely not interested in meeting you or looking at your pic

    and you better not use foul language any more or I may cross the line too and I can do worst with you what I did with cyls OK.

    I never talked about any body's family and I dont wanna talk about that too you stay away from my replys and posts and I will stay away from yours and from next time better not interfere in other's matters.

    P.S. Too bad there were no diapers invented when you were a baby and you had to use old towels instead of diapers tch tch tch.

    and If you think you are old and mature enough and am a kid then you better dont reply to a kid's reply otherwise you are a kid too rather a brat

    got my point ? better get it
