All the five vehicles are from Maruti Suzuki and there is no doubt about that Suzuki is the most favorite company among the Indians, Reason for being favorite is not only the name or Tag of Suzuki but the Features and Specs Suzuki offers in the affordable price range is important. All other competitors are also present their like Honda, Toyota, VW, TATA etc, but Suzuki is outselling all the other brands because of affordable price and good features. Like India Maruti, Suzuki is also the best selling company in Pakistan but in comparing to Indian Maruti vehicles, Quality of Suzuki vehicles in Pakistan is still too low that is the reason people prefer to import rather than purchasing local manufactured vehicles of the company. Suzuki should have to consider this fact and have to provide and manufacture better quality vehicles in Pakistan as well.
