    Default SUV/MPV/Mini Van under 3 million rupees

    I want a bigger vehicle for family use, mostly urban and some rural use, no off-roading, just want a bigger vehicle for more room and safety. Mini vans are pretty rare unfortunately in Pakistan, any suggestions on that as a mini van will be ideal for me (example Toyota Sienna). My research so far is coming down to a Surf 2.7 liter petrol engine. Will a Prado be better? What year of a Surf or Prado can I expect to find in this budget in a good condition. Any advice/suggestion is wel come. Thanks

    Why not Suzuki APV?

    Suzuki quality is usually not as good as Toyota and others, plus Suzuki APV is small with only 1500 cc engine, thus I am not sure. Suzuki APV is ~25 lac new which I am not certain is worth so much money, and the older ones will probably be not as reliable given Suzuki's lower quality and durability. These are my views although I have not driven one, thus open to discussion and consideration, may be we all can learn something from each other. Is Suzuki APV assembled in Pakistan or imported? Thanks

    Diesel engine and that old, will it not be too much hassle, especially when I don't need off roading. Thus why not petrol one, whether Prado, Surf or Foruner?

    Increase budget by how much and what year fortuner to buy? Will an imported Surf be not better than Pakistani fortuner, its specifications look pretty basic, what do you think? If you mean a new fortuner, then is it not 5 million plus?

    If you can wait a few months, locally manufactured Honda BR-V is launching by March 2017.

    Thanks. How would you and any other member compare Suzuki APV brand new for 2.5 million to a used Surf 2.7 lite petrol for the same price, which might be 2004 or 2005 (Not sure of Surf's prices in the market but a guess)

    Surf will be old, beaten, meter reversed while apv will be new..
    Both are different vehicles, surf will give you power but apv will give you peace of mind being new backed by company warranty.

    Thanks brother, you do have a point. I still think that the sheer size, height and weight of a bigger vehicle makes it much safer and that is a key requirement for me. I need it to have rear AC vents, someone just told me that surf doesn't have that but Prado 1996-2001 have them, so now thinking of a Prado ... What can 3 million buy when it comes to a Prado, I am seeing a lot of difference on Pakwheels ads, what year should I expect to get for 3 million in good condition?
