It looks like Pak Suzuki’s reign might be over and just maybe we could get a decent enough car in Pakistan for a change. United Autos is launching a new car United Autos Bravo, The companies previous plan to import Suzuki Mehran clone got canceled apparently as United Autos has applied to Intellectual Property Organization of Pakistan (IPO) for copyright of a vehicle’s design.
There has been a vacuum in the 800cc class of cars in Pakistan with only Suzuki Mehran being produced and sold here United Autos hope to fill that vacuum with their Bravo hatchback. Quality and finishing wise it is on par with the new Pak Suzuki Cultus.
United Autos Bravo is a rebadged Dahe Motor DH350S Petrol model with an 800cc 3 cylinder engine and a 4-speed manual transmission (4+1) front disc and rear drum just like a Suzuki Mehran. After the launch of FAW V2 people’s mindset has been changed about Chinese cars and many are moving away from the “resale Nahi hai” mindset. United Autos Bravo car looks like a potential candidate to break the stigma that Chinese cars aren’t reliable or durable, For now, the company has imported a few Completely Built Units (CBU) to test the waters. However, there are rumors that United Autos might start local assembly of the United Autos Bravo in the near future in Hyderabad or maybe in Rawalpindi ( United industries main GT Road )
United Autos Bravo front united Autos Bravo car’s standard features include EFI engine, front fog lamps, collision protection beams, alloy wheels, power windows, and FM radio with USB input.
On the other hand, power steering, central locking, and air-conditioner are a part of the luxury version. It is expected to be priced at the same price as Suzuki Mehran. Physically the car is bigger both in size and in weight as compared to the Suzuki Mehran.
