Suzuki Mehran Gets a Price Increase & A New Security Feature

About a week ago, Suzuki increased the price for nearly all of its available cars in Pakistan, including all Mehran variants. Experts believe that the increase in Mehran’s price came as a consequence of a massive 53% drop in Pak-Suzuki profits during the past 9 months.

Effective from 10th April, the Suzuki Mehran has received yet another noticeable price hike.

New Mehran Models Get Price Hike

Following the Rs. 5,000 increase last week, Suzuki Mehran’s both VX and VXR variants are seeing an increase of Rs. 24,000 this time.

The new prices of all Mehran models (inclusive of price hike) are mentioned below:

  • Mehran VX = PKR 679,000
  • Mehran VXR = PKR 732,000
  • Mehran VX CNG = PKR 749,000
  • Mehran VXR CNG = PKR 802,000

New Security Feature

This time, however, Suzuki has introduced a new feature alongside the price surge. All Mehran variants will now come with an Immobilizer.

An immobilizer is an electronic security device which prevents the car’s ignition from working until the original key (or a token) is present. This makes it nearly impossible for thieves to hot-wire a car.

An immobilizer or immobilizer key generally has an RF identification transponder which is verified automatically upon car ignition.

Suzuki hasn’t released any information regarding SRS airbags. This is important to mention because both immobilizer and SRS airbags features were made compulsory with the auto policy last year and companies were forced to incorporate such safety features. It seems that Suzuki is finally adding these features to conform with the new policy. It is hoped that the addition of SRS bags is also incorporated in their cars in the near future.

With the Mehran VXR touching 800,000 and noticeable price increase in the past few months, the car will become a tough sell since, at this price range, most imported Japanese cars have it beat on all fronts.

    Bought a Mehran VXR just 1 week back. Didn’t see any security system ?

    • Huzaifa

      I bought a second-hand suzuki cultus from Pakwheels.com, far greater value for money to be honest and I’m a previous mehran owner.

      Es ko sale kar ke pateesa kha lena chahy insan ko, pata nahe log ku es fazol gari ko purchase karte han, boycott kar dena chahy es gari ka to.

      • Zawyar Ur Rehman

        It’s because they have no other option.
        The Japanese cars may although seem to be good value, but the simple fact is that most areas of pakistan are remote enough that japanese car parts availability is a problem as compared to Pakistan-assembled counterparts.

        • Now a days, it is not a problem I think. There are number of famous japanese car models and parts of them are easily available. Second thing is that mostly japanese car owners are sophisticated enough that they don’t need for parts.

        • Ahsan

          it is just a mentality factor otherwise no logical reason to purchase a car like Mehran

          • Zawyar Ur Rehman

            You do have a point there.

    • rehman1

      u sir have been looted…might as well could have bought a khota gari.. sasti bhi and has the same features as mehran.

    • Nasir

      In jaisay logon ki waja say hi aaj Pakistan mein 30 saal purani mehran bik rahi hai.

  • Khizer Siddique

    If suzuki had offered new models in past years, they wouldnt have been in a tough position like they are today. Now investment cost would be too much higher to introduce new models and keeping in view the junk they had been selling with absolutely rubbish after sales services i would say to be better off with japanese import.

  • Hadd hai yar… Pata nai wo kon log hoty hain jo Mehra ly laity hain. Bhai agar itni zor say mehran ayi hoi hoti hai to 1, 2 maah wait kar k thory say paisy aur jorr kay japani car lay leni chahiye.

  • Waqar Hussain

    Ab mjh jaisy kisi ka agr budget hi 3 lac ho tu woh bechara yehi le skta hai naan.

    • rehman1

      khota gari sasti hai, aur mehran say behtar. thandi hawa bhi lagti hai agr chatri lga lo to

      • Waqar Hussain

        Funny. My point was Suzuki is benefiting from the miseries of people. Due to this point Mehran Resale Value will never drop unless some other Auto Players introduces a better but in same price alternative.

    • Wolverine

      Bhai phir pedal chal le bnda.

  • Say No to Suzuki Mehran !

    • Waqar Hussain

      Where you have been ?

    • ZAB

      Sharif say bachay hotay tou Mehran kabhi na letey tum. Sari awam ko perishan kar diya hai tum nay.

      • Sharif sa Bacha

        Did I knock your door to read my comments?

        • ZAB

          Yar aik tou hutiyapay ka kaam kia hai tum nay oper say logon se sorry karnay k bajaye, bhes kar rahay ho. Propak users ko itna perishan kabhi nahi dekha mainay jitna tumharay Mehran leney pe huwey hain. Maafi maango sub se.

  • Innocent Pakistanis will still buy Mehran to support the looting of Suzuki

    • Ahsan

      Purchasing Mehran is not innocence, it is a foolish decision I believe

  • Waqas Bin Zubair
