    Another Evolutionary step by Toyota..
    No other man-made device since the shields and lances of the ancient knights fulfills a man's ego like an automobile.

    LOL. Seriously what was the point of converting it into PKR? We won't get it even for 3x the amount.

    Nice car though.

    This was just to give an idea that a car with such excellent build and economy is sold in their country with this much amount(Americans have GDP per capita 48000 US dollars and Pakistanis have around 1100 ). See what we are getting in 17 Lac a GLI without basic features like airbags, immobilizer and poor fuel aconomy)

    Just note one thing that the dash board design of new Japanese cars is very similar. Looks like Japanese car designers are short of good ideas. Just check the dash designs of new swift, new vitz and city and compare with that of aqua. The curves are the same, what do you say

    I know your reason for mentioning the GDP is probably to indicate that rich Americans get cheaper cars and poorer Pakistanis get more expensive car.

    However, there is a more interesting way to put what you mentioned as follows

    Americans have GDP per capita 48000 US dollars and Pakistanis have around 1100
    What this means is that the average american's production/output is approximately 44 times that of a Pakistani. In statistical (and monetary) terms,

    1 American worker's output = 44 Pakistani workers' output.

    (not that I am justifying this as a reason for our car prices but at least a partial reason since low income = low sales = costly production)
