    welcum to pw

    spare parts r bit expensive and r not widely available as it is newly launched. its over priced bcoz oh high taxes as it is imported... i have only seen 2 on roads ... interior is not much gud but according to performance and features its much better in 800cc category. i'll prefer it over mehran or coure.

    I saw a Spark a couple of days ago and it really didnt look as impressive in real life as it does in the pictures. For some the shape is nice and funky but it looked really shoddy to me. I wouldn't want to be driving one. The price factor is still there.

    @sulemanmirza
    You are right

    I visited Chevrolet Showroom for Spark and guess what, you people are right, the car is not that impressive as it is in pictures and also car seems bit congested from inside too.

    @Zeejigs

    Swift is something i saw first time from PakSuzuki. I never expected such a beautiful and quality car. I went to check the Swift and believe me you can compare it with Vitz 2006-07 so smooth and finished car. Good Interior also.

    Expensive Car - and also this car lies in 1500CC category in terms of Registration etc.


    Can you guys suggest me any other ride in 1.0L except Alto-Cuore?

    two things my friends...I agree swift is a good car but the two cars fall in different category so you cant really compare a 0.8 with a 1.3...Spark is expensive, but then again swift isn't cheap either. Swift is 10 lakhs + falls in higer tax bracket. Spark is 7.4 lakhs + lowest tax bracket (<15,000rs)...anyway they fall in different categories so needless to compare.

    I have driven a Chevrolet spark, I can tell you with ease that the drive is very comfortable for a small car indeed and petrol mileage is exceptional. Engine is also very modern. the car with same shape and engine as the one in Pakistan is being sold in a lot of european countries and the car is very popular there. So at-least like mehran and cuore it does not have age old obsolete engine. Spark might be 800cc but the features are comparable to the top of the line VXL cultus (costing 875 now)..Also as per JD powers survey 2009 posted by another fellow pakwheeler some time back, the spark has been observed as the least problematic compact hatch in India.

    The interior quality is quite good if you compare with other small cars. I think the price is high but then again you dont get any other fully imported vehicle with this price tag.

    unfortunately as far as brand new cars are concerned, Paksuzuki cars [alto,mehran,cultus] and Cuore are the only options left in Pakistan. Santro & joy has been discontinued.

    @froggy, altho the word imported says a different story. but we have had some korean cars in the family, and the owners say their bulit quality is poorer to wat of our local (obviusly Hondas and Toyotas, no Suzuki)

    secondly if we see the (korean mercedece benz vans, the Daweoo racer, Hyundai Excel). Korean doesnt makes me feel so great about it and to be honest the shape of the car seems like ajeeb. i didnt like it interior bhe koi khas nae hai. bongy se back lights. altho front is a bit impresive. i think Joy had made some recognition in the market they shud have had kept on wid it secondly it was being localy assembled.
    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.

    bro I would disagree with the Korean having poorer quality than pakistani ones..if you're talking about the early-mid 1990s, back then Pakistani assembled cars (toyota and hondas) had almost no local parts..That's not the case anymore though.

    I have had very good experience with korean cars..Of course Japanese imports are better but still man Korean aint that bad either. Korean cars are exported all over the world, including US and Europe and have a good market abroad. Joy has also a very good reputation in market and it has many satisfied owners..
    Eventually, I think Chevy people will start assembling spark in PK...the car will gain some market then.

    @Froggyjump,
    my dear, quality which delivered by korea in europe is not the same as they deliver to Pakistan, same SPARK in Norway called ( MATIZ ) is much better then in Pakistan and more then three times expensive due to quality and other factors,

    same is rhe case with china, china delivers quality products in europe and sends ; KACHRA ; to Pakistan,

    Pakistanis are no better even, quality products produced in pakistan called ; EXPORT QUALITY ; and being exported to other countries, and
    low qualities for u and me in Pakistan,

    you are right that they produce different versions for different countries...ofcourse the korean version would have better features..but I have examined and driven the car myself, the quality is much better than other small cars here. In comparison to cuore, alto, cultus it is much better.

    that might be the case with chinese stuff because they say we provide what u pay for.

    But as we all noe GM Chevrolet has a total differnt strategy. altho they only have *** with with 2 Sedan cars, 3rd one is on his way. and 2 hatches, all imported only local 1000cc spec joy was assembled here. (Honda nd Toyota hasnt *** up to dis extent of product line.) so probably there quality is same altho we get the base models here. or the standard models.

    Thanks man for your explanation. Yes you are right as i have experienced Alto, Cuore, Cultus but SPARK is much more acceptable then these cars.

    Although the car is 800CC so registration is cheap but CAN YOU TELL ME THE SPARE PARTS price & availability and what about the SERVICE from Chevrolet?

    @chinyoti
    Agreed VITZ is far more superior than SPARK and almost all hatch backs. I'll consider that car also.

    Guys the problem is not in the Korean or Chinese quality i need to buy a car from available options up to max 1000CC and those are Alto, Mehran, Cultus, Spark, QQ, Vitz etc.

    Alto Rs. 662K, Cuore 689K, Cultus VXR 830K and Spark Petrol is 759K now compare the quality of Alto, Mehran, Cultus with SPARK and then tell me. fair enough?
