Suzuki Mehran Vs China Mehran Comparison-2016:
Is it time to say goodbye to the Suzuki Mehran?
Recently Chinese company Jiangnan Auto, Zotye Automobile has launched cheapest car Jiangnan TT in China. Its price in China is 15,800 Yuan which is equal to PKR 250,000. Jiangnan is similar to Pakistani Suzuki Mehran but has the better features and specifications. Here we are providing comparison of both vehicles.
When the second generation Alto (Mehran) arrived in the local market back in 1989, it costed roughly around 90,000 rupees. And like its predecessor – the Suzuki FX – it was the cheapest car available.
With an 800cc carburetor engine under the hood, and a very basic leaf-spring rear suspension setup, the car was undoubtedly one of the easiest vehicles to maintain.
It was a common man’s dream to afford a car – and the Mehran was the perfect package. With little or no drive pleasure, zero safety and a rather uncomfortable drive, the Mehran still rules the hearts of many.
Additionally, over the years, the quality of its built has declined, but its price keeps shooting up.
