    Default Suzuki Mehran. Here's the reason why its world's most 'pathetic' car...

    Lets look at The Mehran and what we have here?
    Rubbish built quality, **** poor performance, coupled with a pathetic fuel economy, poor ride quality and a high price tag and you're basically looking at THE WORLD'S WORST CAR, period.
    Before opening your fire (specially Mehran owners), allow me to compare The 2014 EFI Mehran with a 1936 BMW R75 Side-car used extensively by Nazi and Soviet troops (under IMZ Ural, which is basically an R75 clone) throughout the WW2.
    Mehran:
    Powered by an 800cc water cooled 3-Cylinder engine with EFI.
    39BHP @ 5,500rpm.
    40ft-lbs @ 3,000rpm.
    BMW R75:
    Powered by a 750cc air cooled 2-Cylinder engine with carb.
    41BHP @ 5,500rpm
    42ft-lbs @ 4,300rpm.
    Pretty close. Sure peak torque is at 1,500rpm later but its down on 1 cylinder and 50cc of displacement and no radiator, no EFI System.
    Even 1930's technology is ahead of 2014 Mehran!!!
    Here's a BMW's Dyno chart for reference:

    Whats your opinion.

    Sometimes its wiser for some people to keep their eyes open and mouth shut.
    Enough said.

    I totally agree with you K4-9, but its not alone Mehran. Pakistani manufactured cars all suck at fuel efficiency, poorly perform, pathetic built quality and are highly priced.

    Never buy Pakistani cars.

    Almost half if the po rice is tax you pay to govt when buying zero meter. If u cut this tax mehran is for 3 lacs. I heared euro ii is much better in fuel efficiency and ac performance is also improved. I have budget of 8 lacs I can not buy jdm which is ofcourse good in all way. Let's assume u buy used mehran in within 2 lacs u get modification in mehran u can change dashboard convert seats in sofa seats. Power windows and steering is not a big deal. Even u can modify engine . So how much u save. It wouldn't cost you more than 4 lacs.

    They are going to introduce that in 2018 or after that. 2017 is the year to replace Cultus.

    @turbo_charge Nah, I've got no Beemer or a Mercedes...
    I'm no rich kid with deep pockets!
    But I just can't help but notice HOW PATHETIC Mehran is (or was, cause its dead meat now!)...

    My whole point was that an ANCIENT 1930s BMW Side Car (A motorcycle with a "tub", look it up) has better performance than Mehran, and also better fuel economy...

    I suppose you don't know much about engines...?

    Cause you'd be able to understand otherwise...

    I was EXTREMELY angry when I started this thread few years ago... I was angry as to why we deserve SUCH PATHETIC ANCIENT JUNK at a premium price while the whole world is getting cutting edge technology...

    You can't blame me for wanting a better ride for our Middle Class Awam...!

    Good Day!

    And if you mentioning safety issue well my dear i have seen many Mercedes drivers on motorway who didnot bother to fasten seat belts, people dont wear helmets unless a wardan wala stops them.. safety of mehran is useless but one must know its limits.. drive carefully.. super cars also get wrecked in roads with all safety features

    Henry Ford once said that if you I had asked the people, " What is it that you want?". They would have answered, " Faster horses!"

    If you ask Pakistanis, I bet they would answer, " pani pe chalnay wali MEHRAN!"

    My point is that Mehran is actually more expensive than a Mercedes once you factor in the kamar ka dard, kidneys ki pain, heatstrokes, sar ka dard and the road rages because of its frustrating drive!

    Once Mehran owners DEMAND A BETTER CAR, thier 7 lacs can get them a very good car by compelling the car manufacturers to deliver!

    Apart from the price issue of Mehran, I believe that the most serious issue for this vehicle is its 'safety'. There were some pictures of accidneted Mehrans shared on Pakwheels, which showed that it is not safe for high speed atleast.

    I have been driving Mehran for around 3 years and I faced no issue with handling, maybe because I drive mostly below 60 mph.
    I think that the car is great for small trips, like going to the market or picking someone from a near school. For long routes, I think it is not safe.

    I also believe that Mehran is not liked by many of the people and they just buy it for guzara, but interestingly I don't think that people here are even concerned about the safety, as much of the people including literates don't take the basic precaution of wearing seatbelts to be serious.

    @turbo_charge
    Brother, look:
    An air cooled twin cylinder boxer with ANTIQUATED side valves has BETTER performance than a Mehran which BTW has a water cooler three cylinder engine with overhead cams...

    I mean, come-on! How come an antique bike with one less cylinder, 50cc smaller engine displacement, Air cooling, and side valves (Not even pushrods...!) HAS BETTER PERFORMANCE than a water cooled 3-Cylinder OHC Mehran...???

    HOW IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE...!!!

    So brother, instead of personal insults and "POLITICAL" statements which have nothing to do with the argument (Like Mehran is better than BIG CARS, whatever that means), try to ANSWER MY BLOODY QUESTION...!!! LOLz!

    Why 1930's tech is superior than your OH SO BELOVED Mehran...?!

    Come-on brother... Try to answer THIS!!!

    The way I see it, you should be ashamed of yourself for defending such pathetic junk, no offense... Pakistanis deserve better, and you should know better too... Enough with the monopoly and robbing by the hands of local assemblers... We need cars with good safety, good tech, good features and good performance...

    I won't put my family in danger by owning a Mehran and driving it on Highways...

    OUR LIVES MATTER...

    GOOD DAY.
