Pak Suzuki has increased the prices of its vehicles as soon as the new year began. The company sent the notices to its dealers countrywide stating new retail prices with immediate effect.
Rs. 20,000 has been added in the total price of soon to-be-discontinued Mehran VXR. The company has not added even a new screw to this model since ages now. The latest ex-factory price of Mehran VXR which is the entry-level car from Pak Suzuki is Rs. 860,000.
Note here that in 2018, Pak Suzuki had increased the prices of its vehicles line-up four times. Although the company blames dollar depreciation and regulatory changes for the price hikes, it is evident that Pak Suzuki is in habit of elevating prices every fiscal quarter irrespective of the country’s economic conditions. The other players like Toyota and Honda also follow the same trend.
Prices of all vehicles have been increased, the following are new prices and are exclusive of any advance income tax.
|Model||New Prices||Model||New Prices|
|Wagon R (VXR)||1224000||Cargo Van||820000|
|Wagon R (VXL)||1314000||Ravi||776000|
|Cultus (VXL)||1531000||Ciaz (MT)||2060000|
|Cultus (AGS)||1638000||Ciaz (AT)||2200000|
