Pak Suzuki recently halted the distribution and booking for its WagonR model. Despite being one of the most selling models, the reason behind this halt wasn’t made public by the company.
There were rumors that Suzuki has stopped WagonR production to boost the sales of its newly launched Suzuki Cultus.
Some also suggested that Suzuki is working on some upgrades for the WagonR model. The second report turned out to be the right one.
Pak Suzuki has finally announced that its new model of WagonR will come with some new upgrades.
According to the notification released by the automobile giant, the new WagonR model will feature alloy wheels and chromed tail garnish. Wagon R VXL will come with the above-mentioned upgrades that Suzuki is calling “Wagon R Minor Change”.
These upgrades might seem minor, however, the price bump that comes with the upgrades doesn’t seem negligible at all.
The previous price of the same variant was Rs 1,114,000 – an increase of Rs 50,000 in just a matter of months.
Not just WagonR, Pak Suzuki recently hiked the prices of several vehicles, including the top seller Mehran. The reason behind this price change seems to be the devaluation of rupee against dollar. Suzuki increased the prices two months ago as well stating the same reason.
As per the company, most of the parts are imported and when rupee takes a dip, the prices of these parts go up. So as a result, the prices of vehicles overall increase as well.
