27 mm high Ground Clearance with Double wishbone/ four-link suspension make it a most feasible vehicle for off roads if compared with the competitors present in Pakistani market while because of its off-road feasibility and high ground clearance with good suspensions all the hurdles on the way didn’t decrease your pace toward your destination.
