what i have gathered after talking to them , the ONLY reason they present is the price ,
the cost of doing business has tripled in Pakistan , because of energy crises , inflation , devalued currency , and all the economic factors combined .
and because of all this , they had to raise their prices sufficiently to sustain their ongoing operations ,
if they bring newer technology engines here , the cost per unit would raise by atleast 120k . which they absolutely do not want to happen in the price dominated area of the market where they rule .
a meharban for 7 lac plus , and an alto reaching 9 lacs...
this would kill their market and make people switch to imported cars like KIE , Jap-Alto , WAGON-R and others who will fall below what suzuki would be able to offer.
so this is the MAIN reason . prevent PRICE INCREASE substantially , and provide the cheapest possible product .
