Mehran has been in production for about 3 decades while little or no improvement, apart from a fuel injected engine, was made during this period. Around the world modern small cars with better quality, better features, better safety & better fuel efficiency are available at nearly half the price of a Mehran, it was about time Pak Suzuki realized they should catch up to the world.

The Auto Policy 2016-21 has created a lot of happening in the automobile industry lately. With the expected invasion of Chinese & European brands, the existing manufacturers (Big 3) are seemingly improving their game. With Indus Motors offering long awaited ‘immobilizer’ to most of their Corolla variants, launch of the new Land Cruiser, Hilux & Fortuner, and now Suzuki showing their intention to update their lineup is indeed a positive sign.
