Auto industry of Pakistan is entering in the new era of modern, functional and high quality vehicles. New auto policy by the Government has attracted old as well as new manufacturers in the country. Take a quick look below on top new cars that are expected to launch this year in Pakistan.
KIA is going to launch 4 new vehicles from small to large size. KIA’s vehicles line up include Picanto, Rio, Sportage and Carnival. Picanto is a small hatchback but its smart design has made its interior most spacious in its class.
KIA Rio comes in both Sedan and hatchback versions but it is yet to see what would we have in Pakistan. KIA Rio 2018 model is expected to having a price tag in the neighborhood of PKR 2 million.
KIA Sportage is one of my favorite due to its design aesthetics specially the front look. I can safely say this could cost around 3.5 million rupees and it will be way better than 2.8 million rupees Honda Civic.
KIA Carnival an 11 seater MPV has a great opportunity in the Pakistani market as Suzuki APV is not meeting the demands of larger families, rental and travel agencies.
Hyundai is a parent company of KIA and is also a strong competitor. Both companies will also compete head-to-head in Pakistani market as Hyundai is also expected to launch 4 new vehicles. Take a look below:
A full sedan that will directly compete with existing market leaders; Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. This car will cost around 2 million rupees to Pakistani consumers.
A compact Sedan to compete with one of the favorite cars of Pakistan, Honda City and it is also priced in the same range. A superior mileage of 17.70kmpl to 15.92kmpl depending on the variant is going to give a tough time to local legend.
The four-door automatic transmission Tucson runs 10-13 kmpl. We need such crossovers in the market as currently Pakistani consumers are fan of imported Vezel.
Last but not least another crossover is expected from Hyundai which is relatively a smaller crossover and expected to have a price tag around 2 million rupees. I wonder if this one is directly aimed at the ladies.
Renault is joining hands with Al-Futtaim, formally reported to build up its mechanical production system in Pakistan in 2018. Renault expected to launch Duster in Pakistan a small crossover and reasonably priced.
Duster with its 1460 cc motor, gives an astounding mileage of around 20 kms for each liter.
