Detailed Overview & Review of Suzuki Bolan

Nothing has been changed in about the last three decades; Suzuki Bolan has been in production since the ’90s, but with every passing year, instead of increasing worth or introducing new Generation updated models of Bolan with More features Company is declining even its build quality. But even after all of this, Bolan is still among the most selling cars of Suzuki and most demanding small MPV’s of Pakistan.

Engine and Power:

Suzuki Bolan is a 796cc MPV that is available with only one engine option. The only thing that changed in this particular MPV in all these years is the introduction of the Euro-2 engine in place of the Carburetor engine. This 796cc inline three-cylinder Euro-II Engine Produces 37HP@5000Rpm with 62Nm of torque while the engine is paired with the same five speeds manual transmission. The top speed of the Bolan is between 120-140Km’s per hour, and it takes 10-12 seconds to accelerate 0-60 kilometers per hour.

Older Bolan’s still have Higher Demand in Hilly Areas:

This one of the fascinating facts about Bolan is that the old Models of Bolan Manufactured before 2004 if maintained carefully, have higher demand in Hilly Areas than Euro-2. Even, Some Areas like Azad Kashmir Well Maintained Older Bolan’s sell pricier than New Euro-2 Bolans. Few Major Differences Between Old and New Models make the old models more worthy which are following;

Build Quality:

There is no doubt that Older Models of Bolan before 2004 have better Build quality in terms of Body and structure, and if compared with New Models, they have more weight all because their Body and frame is made up of high-quality iron. Before 2004 Assembling parts of Suzuki cars were imported from Japan those were of high quality, but after the start of Local Manufacturing in Pakistan, the Quality has declined a lot.

Carburetor Engine:

This is also the most critical factor that increases the demand for older Bolans; if it is said that the carburetor engine is somehow more potent than Euro, then it may not be wrong. In a personal experience, a test being conducted between Euro-II and Carburetor Engine showed that in hilly areas, carburetor engine works better than Euro because of high air compression. It generates enough power to make it move upward quickly on steep paths. In contrast, the Euro Engine for covering the same vertical direction requires a long Start from the Behind compared to the carburetor.

Another thing that makes Carburetor Engines more feasible is the availability of mechanics; Euro Engine Requires a Separate electrician and some digital tools to inspect and repair the fault. For Carburetor engines, highly experienced mechanics are available all over Pakistan.

Exterior and Interior:

In Overall Design, including Exterior and interior, there has been seen no significant changes that make the new Bolan’s more attractive to the customers. If compared, current Bolan has the same Black grille, Black Bumper, and Black Exterior Mirrors, while the only thing that changed in all these years is the Shape of headlamps from Round to Square. Even the Ground Clearance, Length, Width, and Height are the same as it was.

  • Suzuki is no doubt a white elephant and just hindering economic growth. Government is introducing tough policies to keep it running and lack of competition have made Suzuki a bully. Imagine if there is open competition prices of cars will be lesser and cars of good quality will be available on cheaper prices. The reality is Suzuki company’s officers are running vendors workshop to provide spare parts to company and they don’t want to loose business because they can’t develop higher quality parts in their lame workshops. And all Pakistan is suffering because of these thugs.
