Honda Civic vs Toyota Corolla vs Hyundai Elantra Comparison – Which one offers the Best Value?

Hyundai Elantra has launched in Pakistan as competent Against Civic and Corolla

The 11th generation Toyota Corolla has been available in Pakistan for a fairly long time and has always been considered an average-looking car mainly because it is a common sight on the roads and has a relatively pedestrian design.

It is available with a pair of modern LED projector headlights which include DRLs that are highly effective in the dark. The front features a chrome grille that spans over the headlights and giving the car a stylish look. Other than that, the design is fairly simple.

On the sides are 16-inch alloy wheels, body-colored door hands, and smoothly-designed doors that contribute to a clean look.

The back also has a smooth design that adds to the subtle look, but the chrome trim piece on the trunk lid and the new taillight design makes the rear pop.

The Corolla is offering along with an ‘X’ appearance package; however, it is connected to a bumper extensions and a number of interior upgrades which add another beauty to the whole fascinating design. However, one might argue that the X package compromises its clean and subtle look and character.

Honda Civic

Unlike its Japanese rival, Honda took the opposite direction with the design of the Civic, and the vehicle brims with sharp lines and sporty styling cues that are intended to appeal to a more enthusiastic crowd.

If we talk about the front features, there comes a LED headlights or sharp pair of projector (according to the variant), a distinctive bonnet design with sharp lines all across, and a bold front grille.

The sides have a Sportback-like design with a swooping tail and sleek profile that look even more aggressive with the sharp line that cuts across them. Furthermore, the alloy rims of 16-inch that are added to the sportiness of the design.

At its back, the razor sharp design remains continue along with an aggressive bumper design with a pair of reflectors and fake vents, a pair of sharply designed taillights, and a short tail

Which gives the impression of a sporty 4-door coupe, while adding to the Civic’s sporty and cutting-edge look.

Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai seems to have attempted to strike a balance between sporty and elegant with the 6th generation Elantra. The car features wedge-like headlight, front bumper, front grille, and taillight designs that complement its smooth and round silhouette, making it look fairly handsome.

The headlamps are the Dynamic LED Projectors having triangular Daytime Running Lights to enhance the front. In these days, the current trend among automakers are of the Elantra features of front grille is a huge hexagonal that gives it great same assertiveness.

While the sides feature side mirrors with integrated turn signals, the most noticeable aesthetic element is the chrome door handles that give the Elantra a regal look.

The back has a cutting-edge tail light design accompanied by neat, checkmark-shaped reflectors at the bottom of the bumper. The car also features a glass antenna on the roof to give it a classier look besides capturing better radio signals.

Overall, the 6th generation Hyundai Elantra is a robust-looking sedan that exudes a modern look despite being a generation old.

Interior Layout

Toyota Corolla

If we talk about its interior, then it is attractively and clean; however, considering it the point of the price, this point is filled with too plastic. The silver and piano-black trim-pieces around the center control stack, on the steering wheel, and other places lend a slightly more stylish look to the interior.

Another element is the seats, the sitting position is angled sharply up and they are dressed in leather. The next element is the cabin, it is enough spacious that that it afford the comfortably accommodate for all ages of user same for adults or child, however, over six feet tall user may have to struggle with the insufficient headroom in the rear seat.

The boot space is 470 liters, which is less than the Yaris’s boot capacity of 476 liters.

Honda Civic

Here, the Civic remains on the ‘not-so-modern’ end of the spectrum. Although the quality of the build and the materials are put together reasonably well, the design of the interior comes off as a couple of generations old. The layout is simple and intuitive with all the pertinent elements in the driver’s and passenger’s direct lines of sight.

Next the back seats are quite roomy even in terms of headroom, in contrary to the type of vehicle those at the back having a downward swooping design. However, in the middle of floor, there is a hump, and at the middle and the back, the seats are placed a bit higher. Consequently, the passenger at the middle will not feel ease during long journeys expectation of a little child.

The 355 liters are the boot space that seems a tiny if we compare it to the Civic that is quite a big car.

 

Hyundai Elantra

Although it has many features, the design of the interior seems to be quite old, especially when compared to the 7th generation Elantra that has just been released worldwide.

On the other hand, the Elantra’s vehicles have modest and a roomy interior along with the ample clean aesthetics and tech features. Such as a combination of black leather and cream, a silver trim, seats and panels, a simple and user-friendly center control stack and a smart instrument cluster.

The Elantra is a moderately roomy car. Nevertheless, it is a complete sedan, which having a plenty of room for adults at its back seat. There is three passengers seat in the back, however, just for a short distance.

Its trunk capacity is 407 liters, which is also not too big considering the car’s overall size.

Price

However, the vehicle Elantra has a large amount of disadvantage regarding having only one trim-level, since all the competitors are greatly evenly matched. The following are the prices of all the trim-levels of the three cars:

  • Toyota Corolla Price

    • 1.6 Altis X M/T: PKR. 3,219,000
    • 1.6 Altis X A/T: PKR 3,369,000
    • 1.8 Altis X M/T: PKR 3,555,000
    • 1.8 Altis X CVT: PKR 3,705,000

    • 1.8 Oriel i-VTEC CVT: PKR 3,979,000
    • 1.5 VTEC Turbo Oriel: PKR 4,449,000
    • 1.5 VTEC Turbo RS: PKR 4,699,000
  • Hyundai Elantra Price

    • 2.0 GLS: PKR 4,049,000

Conclusion

All three cars are closely matched in terms of their specs, features, and performances, which implies that they offer similar values. Hyundai owners can benefit just a little bit more from a better warranty than the others, but apart from that, the decision of making a choice boils down to which car a potential buyer likes the most despite the similarities.

This is also one of the matter of concern regarding the Hyundai Nishat (vehilces) the reason is the new product does not provide enough reason so that it can disregard already established products in the market as compare to a completely new and untested one.

The new vehicles that has overcome the vehicles of Elantra were actually, truly cheaper as compare to their alternatives (better equipped); and which is also the result of a really popular upon going to launch. The Elantra seems to have none of their appeal other than the fact that it looks different.

As long as the Elantra does not get more variants that are cheaper than its rivals or offer significantly better value, its fate remains uncertain in the local market that is dominated by Japanese compact sedans that offer almost the same value, have large dealership networks, are easy to maintain, and are instantly liquefiable due to their much stronger resale values.

automobile industry of Pakistan

This news is issued from Islamabad that the largest automobile manufacturer of China is going to start electric vehicle manufacturing in Pakistan: the Future Vehicle. This will be one of the quite great things for Pakistan. It will be known as the 1st private special economic zone (SEZ) and it is located in Raiwind, Pakistan.

 

Furthermore, the Board of Investment admitted that in an SEZ Committee meeting in Islamabad, the MG JW Automobile of Pakistan (Pvt Ltd) is just like a zone enterprise’ in the JW-SEZ in Raiwind. If we talk about the investment, then the investment is about 663 million Rupees as foreign investment. Moreover, the local investment is about 637 Million rupees.

 

Next, According to the officials updating, they informed that BoI had received the application regarding the Zonal Entry of MG JW Automobile Pakistan (Pvt Ltd). However, it has launched recently even then ‘SEZ MIS Module’; that is one-window for SEZs in Pakistan.

Between SMIL and JW SEZ, MG Pakistan is considered as a joint venture, generally known as a subsidiary of SAIC Motor Corporation Limited. If you don’t have the idea regarding SAIC then it is quite important to know. Actually, it is a Chinese state-having manufacturing company headquartered in the city of Shanghai and it is multinational automotive design.

 

Surely, it is not only considered one of the largest manufacture in China but as well as globally. If we talk about a bit of history about SAIC.

In simple words, the Govt. is trying to working out assembling and manufacturing the Electric Vehicle Policy. The most important thing for the investors is incentives, it is encouraging the investors to invest in this sector.  

 

If we talk about the future plans then the plan of the government is divided into three phases. In the first phase, they have planned for 30pc of all new trucks, buses, cars, jeeps and vans. In the next phase of 50pc of all two-, three- and four-wheeler will manufacture in the upcoming year of 2030. In the third phase, 90pc of vehicles on the road are envisioned as electric in the year 2040.

 

However, if we talk about the views of the Chines car maker then they are on the side for taking a direct shift to an EV future. Although, the Japanese companies of automobile wanted to follow the way for both hybrid and electric vehicles and the electric vehicles will allow for competing against in the countries such as Thailand, India and Malaysia.

Will 2016 Automotive Development Policy benefit automobile industry of Pakistan?

automobile industry of Pakistan

Some people of Pakistan will debate the automobile industry of Pakistan is adored and disliked at the same time. Due to lack of safety precautions, lesser number of availability of options and high-cost vehicles industry gains hatred and one of reason to like; is to upgrade the vehicle with years.

Government updated automotive policy 2016-2021, precisely which claims industry lacks the investors in this field. , deficiency of investors, creates a gap in demand-supply. Another reason is the lateness of delivery, in this industry; the solution referred is to attract investment. Results were not good, but frequently pessimism emerged that auto division will promote investment as well as a rivalry.

In the coming years, Pakistan will be hitting the peak of the auto economy.

Beginners to attract investors

Regardless of, development in sales is not achieved, the government aims to yield 350,000 units by 2021; newcomers have shown growth in deals and choices. Duty organization for completely knocked down (CKD) as well as completely built units (CBU) was decreased from 2017 and predicted to go on till 2021. Government sticks to policy, despite fear, stress, and disapproval.

All through the consolation offered under Greenfield and Brownfield reserves – the past being setting up of a plant to make a “make” not being made in Pakistan, even as the last was implied at vitalizing non-operational or shut procedure at the latest July 1, 2013 – Pakistan saw at any rate three new organizations gnawing hard for a portion of the market cut with a few others attempting to remain in the news with different declarations.

 

There is a chapter on ‘consumer welfare’ where advance payment on the acquisition of vehicles is discussed. It states that the advance payment cannot be more than 50% of the price and that the “cost and deliverance plan, not above two months, shall be firmed at the time of booking”. Any interruption over two months would cause “discount @ KIBOR plus 2% established on the date of final delivery/settlement from the final payment”. This was meant to reduce delivery lead-time.

Greenfield and Brownfield funds

In the course of encouragement presented under Greenfield and Brownfield funds- previous being setting up of a plant to begin production of segments; that not being made in Pakistan, even as at the end closed operation will be vitalizing on July 1, 2013. It was noticed that three major corporations share a major part of the market, while other companies try to stay in notice with different propagandas. Purpose to mention policy points, as there is a section on client welfare, which discusses payments on the acquisition of vehicles, this also disinterests to read an article about automobiles. It claims that the advance fee should not be more than 50% of the cost, cost and deliverance timetable not be above 60 days, which must be confirmed at the time of booking. Any interruption over two months would cause a discount @ KIBOR plus 2% established on the date of the final agreement from the concluding compensation, aim was to avoid delay on delivery.

 

In straightforward terms, the government imagined a conveyance season of the most extreme two months. On the off chance that there are delays, which are probably going to occur if a vehicle turns out to be massively demanding, one would envision that orders are ended so the lead time stays under two months. The amount of this is being followed is impossible to say.

Worldwide economic disaster

Pakistan’s auto industry has gone through very difficult durations. In the financial year 2008, construction of vehicles stood above 187,000 units. Then next year – because of, implications of the worldwide economic disaster – creation went down extremely to 99,000 units. One may think that it was heartbreaking and production must be normal these days.

 

Nevertheless, after such a disaster, the industry was only stable for three years, later on, the yield was reduced from 180,000 to 136,000 between 2012 and 2013. Then other three years of prosperity; which followed again a year of lesser sales, the industry was hit again increase, later on, it is going through hardships till now-massive rupee reduction, high price rises, elevated interest tax, costly vehicles, and if that was not sufficient Covid-19.

 

One should notice the slow mobility of industry for four months because of Covid-19 that caused 53.5% year-on-year purchase loss, another fact is that industry was not developing in that year. Car sales are affected by more than a few reasons counting entrée to financing, interest charge, prices, new rivals, and in particular, a consumer’s readiness and ability to assign a considerable amount of their income/profits to purchase an asset– depending on how you desire to categorize it – that will reduce eventually.

Public transport system

Through a public transport system that plants a lot to be wanted, the auto area has a great deal pulling out all the stops – a steady approach by an administration that didn’t collapse, and a ‘productive vendor organization’ that can, through the prompt possession premium it charges on new vehicles, measure the amount of a cost increment will be edible. Pundits can contend that the auto area has something reasonable of dangers, yet what business does not. However, if one can not come up with a solid gripe, then one have to keep a long steady approach. Besides more than that by-street travel, and an import obligation structure is created for securing the neighborhood business.

 

With the auto approach set to terminate this year, and the appearance of new vehicles probably attracting to a nearby also, the public authority now needs to plunk down, audit, and chalk out a far-reaching plan for the following decade. It’s generally shown a piece of its hand by referencing electric vehicles and is probably going to be more climate amicable than any past government. However long customer government assistance is to put to the front, Pakistan’s affection for the auto area will best its scorn for it.
