In Pakistan, Honda is assembling their vehicles for more than two decades and KIA also introduce their vehicle in 2,000s but due to some reason, KIA packs up their setup and stop making vehicles.

Features and specifications are almost same, but overall Sportage is way better than Civic. You see panaromic view in Sportage. Sportage gives more luxurious look than Civic, but at the same time the price is also high. The basic version of KIA Sportage is Alpha. 

But due to continously increasing in price of Honda Civic customers are shifted in Sportage. Also Sportage have way more comfortable than Honda Civic. The Civic RS Turbo is 1500 CC gave a mileage 10-12 and Sportage is 2000 CC also gave the same mileage. Overall the car is powerful.

Why KIA was successful in terms of Sale?

Because, the gave fully optional luxurious car in a good price. 

Now we see that the car consumer is now well aware. In Pakistan, the car variety is not available, only these three companies assembling their car and now KIA and Hyundai is come back and made a great name in terms of sale. The major change in market is through imported vehicles. A huge number of imported vehicles is available in market. 

Many car customers are shifted towards imported vehicles, the main reason is Imported car have high comfort and  good performance than local cars. But, we see that, the Government of Pakistan is now understand this thing and we guess that the new auto policy will be in favour of car importers not assemblers. One of the main reason is that the car assemblers gave very late delivery to customers.

We see in two years that KIA work very well in auto sector of Pakistan and have a great number in terms of sale. KIA is the first company that brings European car Peugeot 2008. In 2021, KIA introduced Sorento and expected to launch Cerato before June.
