In India Toyota Vios with 1.5cc version cost starts from 16, 50,000 lacs to 17, 50,000 lacs Pakistani rupees

In other Asian countries with 1.3cc version cost starts from 15, 00,000 lacs to 18, 00,000 lacs in Pakistan rupees.

Therefore there is a highly chance of expected price of Toyota Vios price in Pakistan could be between 16, 00,000 lacs to 19, 00,000 lacs in Pakistani rupees including custom duties which is higher than most of the Asian countries. So if that is correctly estimated Toyota could succeed in price and might give tough competition to other rivals.
