    Default going to import a vitz, which package and model to opt for?

    Hello everybody

    my brother in law is going to import a vitz through a trustworthy dealer. The dealer suggested to get a vitz jewela 2012 which he gave an estimate of 14.5 lac.
    The car will be used as a family car, so we need it to be reliable, trouble-free and economical. Resale is also a factor since we do not intend to keep the car forever but till then it will strictly be used as family car not as an investment.

    Our budget is approx 14lac, none of our close relatives own a vitz so we are confused. After a bit of searching i found that there are couple of packages available in vitz with minor differences. Please give me an honest advice,

    1. Which model to opt for? is 2012 okay? considering above points (reliable, trouble-free, economical, resale)
    2. Which package to opt for? We don't need the bling to be honest. Immobiliser is important though, i hope vitz comes with it? also no need for navigation system. A comparison between difference packages would be appreciated.
    3. What will be the registration costs, tax and annual token for 1.0? For islamabad
    4. What are the maintenance costs?
    5. Lastly, is the price quoted by dealer okay? If it is not i am sure we can find many reputable importers/dealers at PW too but the medium of import is not very important as compared to the above (model and package) dilemma

    edit: what is Vitz KSP-130 etc?

    1. Which model to opt for? is 2012 okay? considering above points (reliable, trouble-free, economical, resale)

    Sir, Ill suggest you to go for Vitz 2012 model Fl package, Its resale is good, jewela takes time to sale and does not give that much payback. Trouble free? Yes, if you're buying an non accident car and with good grade then it would be trouble free for you. Economical? Yes, It is economic car, gives around 15-16 in city and 17-19 in highway

    2. Which package to opt for? We don't need the bling to be honest. Immobiliser is important though, i hope vitz comes with it? also no need for navigation system. A comparison between difference packages would be appreciated.

    Sir, fl package is lowest package, some of them are with navigation and smart stop option, Its interior color is white, It has manual headlight adjusting option, It has non removable headrest and one point headlight beam like alto cuore.

    Jewela package is top package, Some of them include navigation, and mostly are with smart stop option, Interior is brownish, It has auto headlight adjusting option, oem fog lights, chrome grill, chrome door trims, and much more chrome things, seat height adjustment, Its headlight has 2 point beam like corolla or civic, low one includes oem hid, Its headrest is adjustable

    3. What will be the registration costs, tax and annual token for 1.0? For islamabad

    I don't know how much it costs in islamabad, but in karachi its for 20k-25k

    4. What are the maintenance costs?

    Maintenance won't cost that much, all the parts are available locally, Ill suggest you to get your periodic maintenance from toyota motors, little bit expensive but they know what they have to do with the problem

    5. Lastly, is the price quoted by dealer okay? If it is not i am sure we can find many reputable importers/dealers at PW too but the medium of
    import is not very important as compared to the above (model and package)

    It depends on what colour are you buying, which grade car is it, extra options and condition. Please buy car with authentic auction sheet, many dealers don't have auction sheet because they have accident cars which is repaired here and sold, some of them photoshop and generate fake auction sheets, please verify your auction sheet before buying, I don't know what is value in islamabad, If its with minimum 4 grade go with it,


    i bought mine in 2014, Black jewela, 2011 model, 4.5 grade car with interior A, 46k km driven, it was in condition of car like 10km driven, I bought that in 16lacs, navigation, smart stop, mirror sensors, child care seat, hid, oem pressure horn, uv resisted tinted windows,

    Im not expert, maybe experts help you more

    Thank you for a detailed reply. Why are you suggesting not to go for jewela package even though it has many more features? If you got a 2014 jewela in 16lac then i think we can get a 2012 in 14...
    and i am aware of the on going frauds. We will decide the car through auction house list and he will just get us the car here... So the car is not finalized yet. What grade should we be looking at?

    also is immobiliser standard in both packages? and since you said that features vary a lot so are these written on auction sheet? how can we get a confirm list what features does a car have?

    edit: you said fl package is lowest and jewela is top of the line so is there any package which lies in between the two?

    We prefer 1.0 version. And yes the actual cost might be lesser but we cannot import the car ourself so an importer is needed to do all the stuff.

    yes you can import yourself but its a very long and hectic process. Not worth the effort to import just one car... Its better to get in touch with an importer. There are some reputable people here on PW too

    Bro, there isn't that much difference in fl and jewela, why spend 1-2 lac on those chrome trims, headrest?
    Yes, nowadays vitz market is bit low because its new shape as been launched, new shape vitz you can get that in 16lac
    Fl includes keyless entry with immobiliser maybe, fl has much resale then jewela,
    You can not check what features it came with as auction sheet is in japans language, maybe someone here at pw can help you in that
    Maybe there is smile package which is in between both packages.

    Few packages i know are

    F (basic)... 2 airbags, rear windows are manual, no rear wiper i think...

    FL... 2 airbags, all auto windows + rear wiper...

    FM or F smile edition... 4-6 airbags, + Push start with immobilizer + smart key + all above...

    Fully loaded package is 'CIEL'... 8-9 airbags, push start with immobilizer, smart key, alloys, golden garnishing inside, etc...

    Another fully loaded package is 'JEWELA' (released for ladies in Japan'... 8-9 airbags, push start with immobilizer, smart key, brown interior, exterior colors are pink, aqua, chocolate etc...

    Sporty 'RS' version is also there...

    Most commonly imported version in Pakistan is FL package...


    Japanese buy cars without navigation unit mostly because these are very expensive, and u'll see zero meter cars without navigation units... they mostly install aftermarket cheap units thats y u can see similar units in passo vitz upto prius...

    Well brothers, i don't know about such procedures... @harb4u yes i saw that black vitz which u bought with 99 auction sheet...
    As i m not an importer or dealer, i dont know any under hand clearance...

    The above vitz is being imported by the importer thru whom i imported my car and i shared with you ppl...
    @huzaifa.haroon told me some day that even damaged vehicles have same custom duty as of non-damaged ones....
