After launching full-scale local manufacture of its cars in late 2021, Master Changan Motors Limited (MCML) has gained its stride. Changan Alsvin, the company’s subcompact sedan, is one of Pakistan’s most popular passenger cars, while the Oshan X7 is also gaining popularity.
Based on its success and recent milestones, the company is planning to diversify its lineup further by launching two new crossover SUVs in Pakistan. Although the company hasn’t shared any details, the teaser itself has revealed a few hints about these SUVs.
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 Oshan X5 is a compact crossover SUV that will go up against the Kia Sportage, MG HS, Proton X70, Haval Jolion, and Hyundai Tucson. It’s a stylish SUV with a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 180 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque using a 7-speed DCT automated transmission.
