The details seem amazing, the cuts at the side and front make it mesmerizing

From exterior it seems the car could fit right in among Pakistan’s current popular cars.

Lets take a look from the inside.

Enough with the exterior and interior, we will close it with pros and cons.

Pros

  • Impressive warranty
  • Attractive interior and exterior
  • Gives good mileage

  • good body control and steering

Cons

There are no cons as such except one thing. The car isn’t very reliable for longer journeys. It is perfect for you if your business doesn’t involve long drives out of town.

Price

As the car hasn’t been officially launched in Pakistan, so nothing can be said with surity. However, it has been launched worldwide in many countries with price ranging from Rs 0.9 million to Rs 1.5 million, so expect a price somewhere within that range.

    If it would be auto transmission than great. Let’s see about its price now.

  • hamid

    KIA is good and low price brand and I don’t think so it will be expensive in pakistan than cultus or Wagon R.

  • Hammad Ahmed Khan

    An automatic transmission variant is also needed for this car.

  • Muhammad Kamran

    1.5 M. why not go for Swift, or add some more and get Honda city/ xli. in UAE it start from 38000AED

    • What if they launch in 8 lac? It is not impossible, we should hope for the best.

      • Xahid

        it depends on the Pak Rupees value, and I don’t think Pak Rupees value is that good.

      • Muhammad Kamran

        Not possible. You can see its base price in UAE is 38K. In Pak you can’t assume price lower than this range

  • Fahad Siddiqui

    just like FAW V2, specs are same as V2 but its having 2 additional door speakers, better looking player and Cruise Control.

  • Sheikh Muhammad Faisal

    It’s just an imported Car. KIA-Lucky motors yet to start their Production in Pakistan by First or Second Quarter of Next Year (2018)

  • Muhammad Yasir

    should launch the ‘pricier’ automatic transmission variant as well !

  • Zia Aftab khan

    I like kia picanto
