Originally published at: https://www.pakwheels.com/blog/prince-pearl-rex7-new-hatchback-pakistanis/Remember, Pak Suzuki has already announced to discontinue the most selling hatchback of Pakistan, Suzuki Mehran from April 2019. Mehran, by the way, was considered one of the very few affordable cars for Pakistan's bulging middle-class. In the absence of Mehran, therefore, the news of the arrival of United Bravo has been received with much enthusiasm. Peoples enthusiasm aside, the car's performance and build quality remains a debatable topic for many.
Since the news of an 800cc hatchback, Pearl Rex7 made its way to the people through PakWheels.com, it has become the talk of the town. Every auto enthusiast in the country is discussing the pros and cons of this car. Pearl Rex7 came as a breath of fresh air in an auto industry which doesn't see many new hatchbacks with an affordable price tag.
The joint venture of Regal Automobiles and DFSK Group of China, Prince, is all set to launch Prince Pearl Rex7 in the local auto industry. The original manufacturer just like Bravo is a Chinese company, so people are a bit sceptical about the new product, but, still, at least there is something new in the local auto industry and that too a hatchback. Only time will tell how good the product is.
It is imperative to mention here that the car is expected to be on the road in the first half of this year with an expected price tag of around Rs.7 lacs to 7.5 lacs. As Bravo is being sold at Rs.895,000 (ex-factory), it will give tough competition to the car.
As mentioned above, the car will come equipped with 800cc engine coupled with both auto and manual transmissions that make 40 hp at 5500 rpm and 60.5 Nm of torque at 3500-4500 rpm. The company is launching the car in two different variants; manual and automatic.Moreover, as per our source, the compact hatchback has all the bells and whistles which a modern budget car nowadays is equipped with, such as power windows, central locking, latest LCD, power steering, etc. If compared to Mehran, this car has power windows while Mehran doesn't. Even the 1000cc Wagon R VXR doesn’t come equipped with power window option and the other variant VXL has power window option but in front doors only.What do you guys think about the new hatchback?
