    Default What is a Honda Brio doing in Indus Motors' factory?!

    I have come to know this with good multiple sources from within Indus Motors, that deep within the no-go areas of the facility, alongside the 2014 Corolla, stands a Honda Brio.
    The reason they brought this is in was Honda Atlas' was preparing to launch the Brio and Indus Motors needed to study it.

    Now, my sources are to afraid to leak pictures and don't have more details except what I've told you. So who has some top-secret reliable information with a picture or two.

    Also, it seems that Pakistani automakers do listen and take PakWheels seriously.
    Nothing to see here.

    I have tried pulling all my strings in the past dozen or so days to get more information and draft an article on it. Indus DOES have the car, Fazal bhai, you'll fall down laughing when you'll know how, where and who told me this and then realized what he'd done.

    Local R&D is done completely here. Toyota Japan does R&D to make the corolla and you know what, but every region and country does it on its own to tune the cars according to local ergonomics. Yes, some help is provided by Toyota Japan. But IMC is a franchisee company, not controlled by Toyota Japan so they have a bit more control over things.

    But what they do here is just downgrade the international model, plain.

    Desi R&D works like this. Remove an air bag or two, raise the car by 3 inches, develop limited edition sticker, put cheap tire with premium name, plastic cover on everything (Pakistanis simply love that)... there you go, car is now customized for Pakistan.
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    This has got to be the biggest "gup" of the decade.

    Honda Brio is not "alien technology" that IMC is reverse engineering it keeping it parked in the sun in a no-go area inside IMC compound in Port Qasim.

    ask your INSIDER SOURCE he must have got over excited & mixed ETIOS with a Lawn Mower. to my knowledge Toyota ETIOS few variants ( 1 for sure is D4D diesel ) are with IMC since 6+ months. Only with TOYOTA logo in front & rear.

    toyota guys am only comtemplating not making any LEAKS - my setup face the PQ main thoroughfare so I feel pleased with sight of something new

    That's what struck me you know. But I verified it to from three separate sources. And all of them said the same thing, it is parked in the same area where the new Corollas and Etios are parked. And to which place and cars, only few have access too.

    Haha! And you're right. Very right. And that's what I said to Indus guys, so I asked my other friends who work (one uni and one neighbor) there, confirmed that it is indeed there.

    I attended Honda city official test drive event, where they were giving test drives of all Honda City variants but to my surprise they also arranged zero meter corolla to be test driven and compared with the City. Following the same logic they are comparing Etios and Brio. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    When a buyer can compare cars in market what the big deal if indus compares their car with its competitor.

    Same member are contemplating in other thread when corolla will be launched and its specs but here they have tantrums

    Delayed for atleast an year. They were working on it on full swing, but then things just slowed down massively. Maybe due to Corolla launch.
