Pakistan's Top Automobiles
October 11, 2009
A substantial number of years ago obtaining a broad spectrum of vehicles in Pakistan was not likely, with Toyota as the top automotive maker. However, the last many years has witnessed a enormous escalation in the type of vehicles for car buffs to choose from. Partly because of home operations being set up and a growth in second hand imports, a more assorted collection of vehicles can be seen on city routes.
Toyota is still the major automotive maker in Pakistan with admired brands like the Corolla outselling all other makes. Toyota has obtained a position of constancy all through the considerable decades of its market presence here and as a consequence, enables consumers to achieve superb resale rate in the second hand automotive sector. Though not admired for its style Corolla has lost considerable market share to sportier, finer looking vehicles like the Honda Civic.
The Honda Civic is a close challenger for the top place but in spite of several years in Pakistan, it still ranks second. Much sought after for its style and leisure, the Civic has become somewhat of a status icon for the Pakistani elite. It has launched several brands in Pakistan with each one being more lucrative than the preceding one. Honda automobiles also acquire top resale price in the second hand automotive industry and are generally acquirable in publications and online classifieds.
Suzuki has a couple of considerably well-liked designs in the hatchback and coupe class by the name of Khyber and Mehran, respectively. These automobiles are very reasonably priced and satisfy customers with tight budgets. They are also exceptionally economical to purchase and run, with brand new and utilized spare parts easily purchasable in the market. Despite the fact that they do not give the same outstanding quality offered by Toyota and Honda, these automobiles are sturdy and are remarkable cash savers.
A considerable number of other vehicles that have also become reasonably well established include a extensive line of Toyota models as well as different makes like Chevrolet. Despite the fact that offered in a more limited range and imported from other areas, these vehicles have become substantially more widespread in the last few years.
It is obvious that Pakistan’s automotive sector is predominantly controlled by Asian automotive companies and despite the fact that some European, American and Korean vehicles have been there for some years, there is a gigantic lag between them and the primary vehicles made by companies like Honda and Toyota. Despite the fact that Honda quickly acquired market share only some decades ago, the conditions were substantially different then and for International automotive companies to secure a profitable portion of the business will be a substantially more difficult mission.
The automotive sector in Pakistan has seen major developments in car options in the last decade or so.
