  1. But why ??? Has Pak Suzuki grown a conscience ??? Or has this Nation developed a sense of value for money ? Pls keep at it for already another 50 years, so we can all rejoice over a Centenary model.

  2. Suzuki is basically looting the common man selling Mehran at Rs.850,000/- in Pakistan whereas the same vehicle is being sold at Rs.375,000/- in India
