    Default Is Suzuki Mehran 800cc would be discontinued or maybe modified???

    Hey Pakwheelers,
    Assalam-o-Alaikum, I have just heard from different people that Pak Suzuki is discontinuing the most best selling Suzuki product car "Mehran" after 2010. They also told me that after this Pak Suzuki will bring up a new car generation unlike Suzuki Mehran, but on the other hand that Pak Suzuki is announcing to modify Suzuki Mehran for luxury, engine, performance, suspension, braking & of course the Air-Conditioning system. So I think that in this thread we should discuss for this. Anyone related to Pak Suzuki please inform us for the latest news.

    Feedback is important, & people discussing in this thread are highly appreciated for their information.

    This is from PAMA website, between July 2009 to April 2010 Corolla sold more units than Mehran. Does it mean Mehran is losing the market, though the two cars are in different price brakcets.

    34,000 Corolla

    19,000 Mehrans

    Actualy thats becuase, people who used to buy mehrans have either lost there buying power or opted for second hand vehicles, bigger and better then a brand new Mehran.

    Incase of Corolla, corolla has atracted alot of market to it self, people who previsuly bot a Exi/Vti/Gli/Altis/Xi/Honda City, all have found the new GLi to be a complete car giving a bigger look, more durable, and a higher resale value.

    By durable here i mean

    Suzuki - 3 yrs

    Honda - 5 yrs

    Toyota - 7 yrs

    A complete car i mean (power windows and central locking and Abs)


    Liana doesnt count (as many people consider options City and Corolla these days . So lets not argue about Liana.)
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    I hope what the poster is saying is true. Khyber was discontinued after 10 years as far as I can remember, lets hope Cultus and Alto are at replaced this year as they have also now completed a decade but chances are very little the way Paksuzuki has been operating in this country.

    Let alone a model change, Paksuzuki has not even bothered to change engines in mehran and alto which still use 1980s technology engines which have been discarded by the world(including others developing countries) for several years. The only way Paksuzuki will be forced to give a new model or at least an engine upgrade is if the government implements emission norms.

    Assalam-o-Alikum,

    Well my point of view is our automobile industry should learn from Indian Automobile industry, they know the need of the people but ours are just making their bank balance larger. Common people of Pakistan needs a car like TATA NANO with a price tag of atlest 2.5 Lacks or our importers should start importing cars with the same price tag.

    Suzuki Mehran is a fine car but still very costly for a common man, like bikes I think chinees cars should come in the market with common and affordable price.
    Ideas and Creativity are my passions. ........(Tariq)

    Thanks for the discussion & postings but brothers I think that Suzuki Mehran should be changed or altered because its such a mess!!! The Engine goes down on A/c, Performance not good, suspension hard like rock, braking as third class like rickshaw, handling as bakwas than bicycle. So as the matter of fact Suzuki Mehran should be changed!

    In my views Suzuki Mehran should be:

    1000cc Carby or EFi engine
    Performance like Suzuki Cultus
    Suspension as Suzuki Cultus
    Braking as booster
    Handling as a sport
    A/c as Suzuki Alto or Suzuki Cultus

    & the prices should be 500k with full options (A/c & CNG)

    No offence but if performance, suspension and A/c as Cultus, no much to improve.

    brother, pak suzuki have updated the bolan and the old fashioned round lights have been updated with advance and modern looking rectangle ones. so now, there is no need to change anything on bolan for the next 25 years.

    About Mehran, i think its time for suzuki to change its bumper with a more luxurious one and then mehran will be good for another decade. a new color is i think too much to ask for

    and by the way, mehran is not 80s technology, its based of fx which was designed in 70s. Name just one thing that is more advance in mehran than fx

    With all due respect to Mehran owners, If PakSuzuki wants to make Mehran Luxury all they have to do is just make Mehran a CAR!!!

    Regards
    what does a Coure offer that mehran doesnt ??? seriusly ek bat batado

    both of them are 800 and 850cc mini city travelers.

    no power features.

    Both come in standard and upgraded packages. (coure CL nd CX mehran VX and VXR

    (mehran vxr doesnt has a audio system but that doesnt count as a competion to price difference)

    Both come in petrol and FF cng options.

    If ure comparing them in terms of quality, then mehrans price justifies its low quality against coure.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.
