Chinese manufacturers have started to explore potential in Pakistan’s automotive sector holds. One of the brands is none other than FAW. One of the brand’s most popular model is FAW V2.
FAW V2 is currently the only locally assembled non-Japanese passenger vehicle in Pakistan. The model was first introduced in 2014 as CBU. After receiving a positive response from consumers, the company started local assembly in August 2017.
Over the years, the V2 has performed well in the market and has been growing.
Under the Hood of FAW V2
The V2 has a lot to offer drivers, hatchback lovers will not be disappointed. The 1.3L (1298cc – tax benefit) churns out an impressive 90 horsepower at 6,000 revs and 120 Nm of torque at 4,400 revs; couple that with a 5-speed manual and an electronic throttle and you got yourself a nice pocket-rocket given the weight of the vehicle.
The fuel economy figures are decent too, as V2 owners have been getting 12-13 km per liter within the city, and up to 16.5 km per liter on highways.
Interior & Exterior
