Kindly check the Production/Sale record (Source: http://www.pama.org.pk/historicaldata.htm)
City sales has decreased significantly after the introduction of LIANA:
In 2005-06 16136 City's were sold whereas in 2006-07 the figures were reduced to 11848.
Whereas in 2005-06 4571 LIANA's were sold and in 2006-07, the sales has increased to 6067.
The City is in Pakistani market since 1998. whereas PakSuzuki started manufacturing LIANA is 2006.
When City was introduced, there was no such competition in 1300 cc class (just Baleno, Corolla and City), Whereas LIANA was introduced in 2006 and faced competitors like City, corolla, Sunny, Optra, Lancer and many other imported cars. Despite of facing such a tough competition from the very start I think LIANA is doing good.
Can you please quote me any car which is launched in 2005 or later and selling good? I definitely admit Lancer, Optra, Sunny are much better cars as compared to LIANA but why people are not purchasing these good cars and still prefer to buy City or Corolla?
