It is yet unknown at this stage whether these new vehicles have been put on display just for attention purpose or Pak Suzuki really wants to introduce these in our market. Considering the troubling economic times with restrictions on CKD as well as CBU imports. Introducing a new model in this scenario seems highly unlikely.
