This seems as if this is becoming a common practice amongst car manufacturers in Pakistan where they are introducing new variants in hopes of increasing sales. Even Indus Motor Company (IMC) also followed the same method where they introduced a new version of their Fortuner called the Fortuner G in an attempt to boost sales.
This new Civic VTEC Turbo Oriel variant seems to be an attempt by Honda Atlas to increase sales in a time when the auto sector in Pakistan is going through a very bad crisis where companies are experiencing very low sales to the point that they have had to lay off many workers and halt production because of stocks piled up.
