    Default 7 Seater Family Car Needed - Suggestions please

    Asalaam-o-alaikum

    I am planning to relocate to Lahore from Manchester UK. Mashallah I have a young family of 3 kids and need to purchase a jeep / family car that will seat 5 + driver comfortably.

    I am looking for something that is very practical and spacious. Ideally I would like a Toyota Previa (Luciada) or a Chrysler Voyager, but I don't think these are popular in Pakistan and are too expensive for me. I have a budget of approx. 15 lacs.

    Another point is that should I buy brand new or 1 or 2 years old? i.e how much will the price of a new vehicle depreciate over 1 year in Pakistan?

    Thanks for reading and any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Wasalaam

    Hi

    deel_ee suggested I talk to MARKS in regards to buying an Estima. Do you car sales, marks?

    If so do you have a list of Estimas that are available right now?

    Thanks
    Atif

    all suggested nice vans for you from market here. my 2 cents select something with all seats facing frt, not last seat facing rear or side.. thats a headache in long run for last seat passenger

    btw, wen u come here, do chk the apv, have a test drive, n go for any other 7seater in1.5million budget only if u hate the APV... otherwise... IMHO, if u need a family car for 7ppl in under 1.5 million...its APV!!!

    APV isnt half as bad as some of the posts suggest. Dont take it off your radar until you take a good look at it yourself. Estima no doubt is better in all respects but sourcing spares for it will be a pain in the a$$.

    youcan also consider hiace super custom, my neighbour has one with 1kz-te in auto and man oh man, it is powerful and amazingly comfortable, this version has climtae control, poered curtains, in total three sunroofs and much more goodies, and it comes with rear trailing arms with coil springs....
    its all about power to weight ratio...

    Hi all

    Thanks again for all your great comments and opinions. I have decided on an Estima, it was actually going to be my next car in the UK anyway. I think there are enough places for me to get parts and accessories in Lhr, even if I have to pay a bit of a premium.

    Marks I plan to visit Lhr or the 10th Sept for a week, (looking for a rental house), but maybe I can meet up with you and discuss my options in regards to importing a vehicle or just buying from the local market.

    What spec and year do you think I can get in my budget imported? And how much would I be paying for that in the local Lhr market.

    Thanks again guys!

    get the APV

    imPORts might be good but no after sale service availabale ,spares not available.if availabale toooooo much expensive
    no resale .


    i will highly reccomend a suzuki APV.
    ITS PRETTY MUCH STABLE even at high speeds 140 kms/h on motorways.

    very much comfortable.
    quite roomy.

    the best 7 + seater available in the market.
    there are pretty MUCH APVs availabale for rent.
    do a drive for 2 ,3 days or a mini trip on that van for judging its pros and cons.
    Past cant be brought back ..but future can be made even better than the Past..if one wants to.. ....
