I wonder when Suzuki will learn. When Toyota and Honda are bringing out badass models (mainly Honda, no offense, Toyota), why cannot Suzuki get out of its structured mentality of producing cars that look similar. Glance over Suzuki’s now defunct Khyber and Margalla, Swift, Cultus and Mehran and you will witness a marked similarity. All cars have a similar design. It’s like they are made from the same mold.
The reason for my rant has nothing to do with Suzuki, because I also own a Suzuki Cultus 2007, however, it has everything to do with the new Cultus, also called Celerio. After much hype over social media, the car was revealed last week. It does not have any feature whatsoever which could give it a price tag of 12 to 15 lac (PKR 1,2000,000 – 1,5000,000). Just imagine that Suzuki is charging this price for a 1000 CC car comprising dual airbags, anti-disc braking system, fog lights, power steering, air conditioner, audio system, power windows, and chromed grill? I wonder when will Suzuki launch a model, which looks different than it has to offer – a design that is sleek, trendy and modern and not the only akin to Cultus 2017, which honestly speaking looks like a cross between Suzuki’s Wagon R and Swift.
