Changan Teases Two New Cars for Pakistan
Master Changan Motors Limited (MCML) has truly hit its stride since late 2021 after starting full-scale local assembly of its cars. Its subcompact sedan, Changan Alsvin, is among Pakistan’s most popular passenger cars, whereas Oshan X7 is also becoming a common sight on the roads.
A few keen-eyed observers including carspiritpk.com have pointed out that the teased SUVs are Changan CS35 Plus and Oshan X5.
Changan CS35 Plus is a subcompact crossover SUV that will compete with Chery Tiggo 4 Pro, Kia Stonic, and MG ZS in Pakistan. It has a turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine that makes 158 horsepower (hp), 260 Newton-meters (Nm), which goes to the front wheels via a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission.
MCML is expected to debut the 2021 facelift of CS35, which has several cosmetic and other revisions. It is packed with features such as blind-spot monitoring, panoramic sunroof, touch-based infotainment system, automatic climate control, stability control, hill-start assist, parking sensors, and other features.
The other SUV is Oshan X5 — a compact crossover SUV that will compete with Kia Sportage, MG HS, Proton X70, Haval Jolion, and Hyundai Tucson. It is a sharp-looking SUV with a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine that sends 180 hp and 300 Nm of torque to the front wheels via a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox.
