Favorable points of United Bravo:

- Attractive design: company has provided marvelous design that is much better than the previous Mehran, Alto and Santro designs. The quality of paint is commendable and the aerodynamics are smooth.
- Advanced features: United Bravo has been equipped with all standard features a modern car should have as we have already discussed the tremendous changes introduces that were not in the previous 800 cc cars.
How it can be made even better?
It can be improved a little with the quality of plastic used in the interior cabin. The quality of plastic is not up to the standards that give a cheap look to the cabin. The handles of door from inside is shoddy. The seats of United Bravo are not very comfortable and suitable for longer journeys that does not suit patients with low back pain. So those people who have to travel a lot to their hometowns do not prefer United Bravo. Company promises a good fuel economy that is expected by all the consumers of small hatchback segment cars but the fuel economy is not that much promising as declared. It does not give any spare tyre and even no place for spare tyre. There is no ABS system provided so company should keep in mind these flaws that should be removed in the upcoming versions. The facelift can also be improved a bit to give a modern design. Lastly company should focus on the availability of spare parts of the car because the car is competing with Suzuki Mehran and as we all know Mehran is most loveable car because of the readily available and low cost spare parts of Mehran that makes its maintenance cheap and promising resale value. Up till now the spare parts of United Bravo are not readily available but we hope that with the increase sales and demand of the new car in market, its spare parts will also be available at cheap prices in market and will give an average resale value. The automatic version should also be introduced soon so the customers seeking for automatic transmission should not search for other companies.
United Bravo is available in show rooms at the price of 8.95 lacs Pakistani rupees so if you are looking for small budget friendly 800 cc car then book your Bravo soon.
United automobiles have set a goal to break the stereotype of the Suzuki small hatchback segment cars including Mehran and Alto. It has provided many advanced and improved features that the Suzuki cars do not have. Although Mehran has been vanished in manufacturing plants but still the supremacy and power of it have remains on our automobile industry. Its resale value, maintenance value and value of spare parts had made it favorite among the buyers and United Bravo has to face a big competition from Suzuki cars. If United Bravo continues to give better advanced features and the spare parts of the car become common in markets then it can break the hold of Mehran in small hatchback segment market. It may take some time for United to become as popular as Mehran but we hope a profiting business and a good place in markets for the United Bravo.
