This price hike is because of the new infotainment system introduced in the variants.
Prices of both models have been inflated by Rs10,000 which the company attributed to the introduction of an infotainment system in the said variants.
Amir Shaffi, Pak Suzuki Marketing and Sales Department Functional Head ” We, at Pak Suzuki, always focus on bringing product augmentation to meet the ever-increasing expectation of the customers,” He further added, “To continue this philosophy, we are delighted to introduce Suzuki Cultus with a new upgraded infotainment system.”

One of the anonymous sources revealed, ” In China, this is a common technology found in cars priced far below than the mentioned rates” He further added, ” These car companies are not innovating. In fact, they are selling decades-old variants in the country.”
The company did not raise the price of the Cultus previously when it was increasing the price of other cars in November 2019. Other car manufacturers have also hiked the prices of their variants.
