PROS

It offers a cheap purchasing value, although it is an imported car still is available at low prices and it has been the most economical imported version in Pakistan. Most of the imported cars come in automatic version only but this version of FAW also comes in manual transmission. It offers a spacious interior with extra coziness and more leg spacing. The performance of the engine is great with decent pickup speed and amazing road grip that ensures safety and security. It offers smooth transmission that comes in less amount of money.it has all the basic features like power door locks, ABS, keyless entry, defogger, and LED lights to make the drive smooth and comfortable in all types of extreme weather conditions. It offers aluminum alloy rims at a low price as compared to competitors. Another amazing advantage of this car is its readily available spare parts that are available at cheap prices in markets so the maintenance value of the car is not so bad. The sound system is also great with a pair of speakers and USB and MP3 player.

CONS

One of the biggest disadvantages is the resale value of the car because new and latest models have been in the market so people go for the latest models. Another concern is about the substandard interior material used in the cabin that lacks attractiveness and smooth finish to the interior because of the low-quality plastic used inside. Fuel consumption of the car is not so promising and we can see a lot of bragging towards the economy of fuel usage. Brakes are not as smooth as compared to competitors and you have to apply greater pressure on applying brakes. We also do not get cruise control, satellite navigation, and traction control features in the car.

FAW V2 VCT-i versus Suzuki Cultus and Toyota Vitz:

Suzuki cultus will produce 63 hp power and 5000RPM torque with petrol fuel type engine and giving mileage of 14 to 20 kilometers per liter while Toyota Vitz gives a mileage of thirty kilometers in the city and thirty-five kilometers per liter on highways and generate 106 hp horsepower at 6000RPM and Toyota Vitz has a strong market and more customers. Suzuki cultus has a price range between 12.5 lacs to 15 lacs Pakistani rupees while Toyota Vitz has a price range between 16 lacs to 23 lacs Pakistani rupees. Compared to FAW both brands have highly distinctive market value and FAW is in the average value and still, it cannot beat the place and supremacy of both brands. Customers will choose Toyota or Suzuki as their first preference while going to purchase the car and the durability and reliability of both the competitor brands are far more attractive than FAW that makes it the first choice of customers.

Final verdict

Even after the major competition between the superpowers of Pakistani automobile industry FAW has maintained its popularity because of PAK-CHINA friendship and increase trade between both the countries. FAW V2 VCT-i has been advanced with many whopping changes and its sales have been increased a lot in the recent years and it has managed to make a stable growth in markets. Older models of used V2 are still under purchase in markets because of their average cost and amazing features.
