Assalam-O-Aliekum,margalla is undoubtingly and awsome car,perfect in every aspect I do own one till now and have an experience of each model simple,plus and power plus.
And there is no comparison between margalla and santro...my brother do own a santro bought brand new and well maitained car but not compareable by margalla in any aspect.
I have owned and driven surf,prado,crown,corolla,civic,city,baleno and many more but i will say margalla is really a very good car.
I have driven this car throughout Pakistan and not a single problem i faced,2 yrs back i was coming back khi from lhr and a child came in front of me on highway and car was at 120km/hr and there was no distance but the car managed to stop safely.
I use margalla very rare as I have baleno 1.6gti in my use but it is really good...excellent pickup,perfect engine requires no maintaince but one should change oil on time.
A best car of 90`s in 1.3 catagory!.
I am not interested in selling it now also infact planning shortly to take it Quetta for automatic transmission as here ecu is not available and auto runs on ecu.
