Alto is being introduced as an alternative to Mehran. As most of the parts of the car will be imported, it will be quite expensive as compared to Mehran.

The company officially discontinued the booking of Suzuki Mehran this month.

Suzuki had launched Mehran in 1989 in Pakistan and it has since been one of the most popular cars in Pakistan.

The company had announced in September, 2018 that it will stop the production Mehran’s VX variant from April, 2019.
