CarFirst brings you the list of the top five imported cars that offer good value for money:
Daihatsu Mira has been in the Pakistani market since early 2000 but it wasn’t until the launch of Mira ES in 2011 when the company launched it with a stop-start technology that resulted in gigantic sales figures and as a result, the car was widely regarded as one of the most loved JDM models in Pakistan. Currently, Mira ES is in its second generation and the 660-cc hatchback comes with a 3- cylinder inline dual overhead engine which is evenly backed by a CVT transmission. Combine it with an exciting blend of interior and exterior features, Daihatsu Mira ES gives you a good value for money considering it is priced between 1.5 – 2.1 million depending upon the variant you choose.
With its unique and distinctive design language, Toyota Vitz can easily be regarded as the most popular hatchback in Pakistan. Currently, the company has launched its third-generation variant in 2021 and the car has again grabbed headlines with its updated and sportier look. The third-generation Toyota Vitz is equipped with a spacious interior while the exterior boasts larger dimensions when compared to its second-generation variant. To top it off, the latest variant gives a 12-14 km per liter mileage which is nothing less than gold considering the car is equipped with a 1300 cc engine.
With aggressive design, a perfect SUV look, and a refined interior, Toyota Aqua has been nothing less than a treat for the users especially after it received the facelift in 2015 that introduced several minor cosmetic upgrades. The car is widely considered as a flag bearer of comfort and with its 1.5-liter DOHC 16 Valve engine, this 1500 cc beast bosses the road with good mileage. Regarding its price, it’s available between 2.2 – 2.3 million PKR price bracket which marks it as an extremely competitive vehicle when compared to the other variants in the market.
Honda N one
Honda N one was introduced in 2012 and the thing that instantly worked for the variant was its beautiful exterior. The presence of circular headlights gives the hatchback its unique look while the addition of trapezium grille, chrome accents, and a rectangular air intake provides a perfect sweet platter after the main course. The car is priced between 1.6 -2.1 million depending upon the variant and model year which is very competitive considering it is packed with a 660-cc engine that is bound to give good mileage.

In Pakistan, the variant has given extremely tough competition to Suzuki Bolan and has grabbed a large market share. The car packs a 660-cc engine which gives it a slight edge over Suzuki Bolan considering the latter boasts an 800-cc engine. Daihatsu Hijet is available in a competitive price range of 1.1 – 1.2 million PKR which offers a good value for money.
