And the typical Pakistani "farce/saga/drama" is being played now at the dealers with respect to delivery of these new versions, customer as usual being strangled from all angles, being told of no deliveries before July, so the yearly "Zardari tax" could come into force, post-budget!!!!
Rest assured, the "launch" was deliberately delayed till these days, so as to ensure that earliest deliveries on bookings would fall post-budget.
I'm set for the MT/SR/1.6 Altis, but, humbly, this is no humane marketing strategy by Toyota/ IMC, and hadn't Honda's Oriel been singing on the last verses before an upgrade by next year or so, I'd have given a damn about IMC marketing strategies.
May I add, an increase of say 50-100K's of the Altis prices, post-budget, will doom them to hell, already being at 18.09/18.99, and the crappy package with the GLI Auto at 16.79, with no airbag/keyless entry/alloy rims and other essential goodies of this price range vehicles, is a doomed miscarriage, anyways!
Long live the "Pakistani drama", the casting of which, from top to toes, all a stinking bunch of greedy suckers, playing dirty games with the aspirations of general public, where in this country can one avail anything at the genuine/announced prices, a petty general store dealer yesterday, a bit off-shore, yet still, wanted Rs.105 for a Rs. 100 scratch card, so can we really blame anyone? Lolz!
