How Changan Oshan X7 Stacks Up Against the Competition

Master Changan having seen good success with the Karvaan minivan and M9 Sherpa pickup and recently a great response with the Alsvin subcompact sedan within short span of time has now tapped the crossover segment with the launch of new Oshan X7 CUV.

More importantly whatever Changan has offered in Pakistan is the current generation models launched in line with the global lineup unlike many newcomers as well as existing players relying heavily on outdated models. Changan calls Oshan X7 a disruption in CUV segment, with plenty to offer to its customers. Lets see how well it stacks up against the competition and whether its really a disruption in the market in true means.

Pakistan’s first locally assembled Euro-6 vehicle
Changan boasts the Oshan X7 as the first locally assembled vehicle to have a Euro-6 compliant engine under its hood. Not only that its environment friendly but its also very economical with the company claiming it to be up to 44% more fuel efficient compared to other vehicles available in the market.

Most powerful 1.5L turbo engine
And its not just about greener fuel efficiency, the new Blue Core turbocharged engine deployed in the Oshan X7 is also the most powerful 1.5L engine available in Pakistan, ever more than that of Proton X70. The Oshan X7 with its 1.5L turbo engine punches out 185 hp of power and staggering 300 Nm of torque. Power is sent to front wheels via 7-speed DCT gearbox with multiple customizable driving modes. However it is worth mentioning that Oshan X7 comes in FWD only.
