The season of car sales and buying stays in swing throughout the year. Let’s discuss which car is best suitable when it comes to buying and selling cars in Pakistan.

Top 5 Cars to Buy and Sell in Pakistan

If you are confused while choosing a car to buy or sell while residing in Pakistan then let’s discuss the features of the below cars that proved to be the best over the years.

1.   Toyota Corolla

The idea of the Corolla was inspired by Japan in 1967 and it was introduced in Pakistan in 1993. The design of this car made it popular. This company sold more than 18 thousand corolla cars in the previous year. This is because the Toyota Corolla remodeled its 1.3 GLI and XLI alternatives like Yaris and also transformed its engine just like Corolla X with a 1800cc engine.

Many people say that Corolla is only for the upper economic class in Pakistan but the ease of ownership, reliability, excellent maintenance service and resale value of Corolla has convinced all the economic classes in Pakistan, thus making it among the best 5 cars in Pakistan. That is why it is one of the highest cars for sale in Pakistan.

2.   Toyota Yaris

More than 14 thousand units of this car were sold last year making it the best car among the best five cars in Pakistan. It was introduced in March when there was a lockdown and every business experienced a major decline in their sales, this Toyota Yaris outpaced the Corolla 1.3 GLI and XLI.

Though different groups of people had different opinions about this model but still due to its features, its sales outnumbered the sale of Honda City and Civic, if we talk about their combined sales in previous months. A 30 percent increase in sales was seen after the launch of the Toyota Yaris, making it one of the top cars for sale in Pakistan.

3.   Honda Civic

More than 11 thousand units of this car last year, making it the best one to buy and sell in Pakistan. Japan launched its first Honda Civic in the year of 1973 and this model was introduced in 1994 for the first time in Pakistan.

There are many generations of Honda civic, and the 10th generation is the most famous and reliable of all as it has the best features for its customers. Variation 1.8 of the Honda Civic is available in Pakistan and has been proved the best.

4.   Suzuki Cultus

If you are hesitant in buying the above cars due to the high rates then Suzuki Cultus is the best option with limited yet best options. Suzuki launched this car in the year of 1983 and three models of it got much recognition. These are VXR, Auto Gear Shift, and VXL. In 2018, more than 20 thousand units of this car were sold in Pakistan, which is undoubtedly a huge success.

After the lockdown in 2020, there was a huge demand for this car but Suzuki could not meet the demand as it faced a production-related setback. This setback caused a huge decline in their sales.

Now the company is working on this problem and bringing up better results. This car is very economical and comes with reliability and ease of ownership. Nonetheless, it’s one of the top cars for sale in Pakistan

5.   Suzuki Mehran

Suzuki comes to mind when we talk about a company, whose spare parts are available and its cars can be resold as well. This model was launched in 1984 by Japan and is the most affordable among all. This brand provided the lowest-cost cars in Pakistan.

Suzuki did not remodel this version and has been in the market with the same design as it was 30 years before. The two models of Mehran, VX, and VXR were among the most sold units. Now, Suzuki Mehran is replaced by Suzuki Alto 660cc  but you can still buy a used version.

Red Flags When Buying a Car

If you are going to buy a second-hand or a used car then these are the things you must see before buying. Selling a car in Pakistan and then buying a used car is just a tradition in Pakistan. Buying a used car is not like compromising on the faults of a car.

Beware of these three things when you are intending to buy a used car.

1.   Exhaust Smoke

You must have encountered this situation where you see a used car exhausting extreme smoke. The seller of the car might have told you that it’s not the smoke but the steam. So, let’s discuss the difference between steam and smoke. A car takes time in reaching its operating temperature in winters and it emits smoke during this time. This is not smoke but steam and it’s quite a usual thing. Otherwise, it is smoke, and do not buy a car that emits extreme smoke.

2.   Oil Leakage

While planning to buy car in Pakistan, if you notice that it is leaking oil then do not buy it. If you want to check if it leaks oil or not then carefully analyze the electric connections, engine, seals, and underbody of the car. Just drive the car for 15 minutes and see if leakage occurs.

3.   Rust on Car Body

If rust is already on the car then it simply means that the car body is weak and will be kept declining with use. Always if the rust is present on the penal, pillars, rear boot, radiator support of the car. This helps a lot when it comes to using a car for a longer period.

These are the best cars if you want to buy car in Pakistan. Now, you can choose the best car that suits your desire as well as the budget. Also, if you are going to buy a used car then always check the above three cases to enjoy a better experience.
