KARACHI (Dunya News) – Pak Suzuki Motor Company Limited (PSMCL) has raised prices of its Alto variants, Suzuki Alto VXR and 660cc Alto AGS, by Rs70,000 and Rs85,000, respectively, effective from October 1, 2019.
The circular issued by Pak Suzuki to its dealers has mentioned the new prices of its cars.
The price of Suzuki Alto VXR is increased to Rs1,308,000 as compared to its earlier price of Rs1,238,000. The price of 660cc Alto AGS variant has been increased by Rs.85,000 to reach Rs.1,518,000. These prices are inclusive of ex-factory price and freight charges.
The 660cc Alto VXR car is equipped with an air-conditioner (AC) and a manual gear transmission.
The variant Alto AGS has an automatic gear transmission, powered steering and powered windows, and dual airbags.
The company said “the price hold will not be considered for the old pending orders which have been booked with partial advance payment and/or for those orders in which customers failed to deposit their balance payments within the due requested time.”
It said the retail prices were inclusive of “freight charges incurred on the vehicle to reach your dealership premises”.
Last time, Pak Suzuki revised the prices of Alto 660cc in August, 2019.
The automobile industry in Pakistan is already plunging due to low demand in the market, higher prices and auto production plants’ closure since the government imposed heavy taxes on purchase of vehicles. The auto companies are increasing prices of vehicles, which in consequence, have pushed customers out of the budget from buying new vehicles.
