After KIA, the biggest reveals came from Changan at the Pakistan Auto Show 2019. The Chinese automaker has joined hands with Master Motors to introduce five Changan Cars for the Pakistani market. All Changan Cars, current and upcoming, were displayed at the show. Let’s discuss these Changan Cars in brief:
The Changan A 800 is an urban MPV featuring a modern design and advanced technologies. The Multipurpose Vehicle carries a 1.5L turbocharged DVVT engine churning out 115kw at 5500 rpm. The salient features include a 7” LCD instrumental penal, panoramic sunroof, seat heater, stability control, parking sensors, blind spot monitor, eco idol, cruise control, and so on. The automaker might introduce it by the end of this year.
The Changan CX70T is a 7-seater SUV powered by a 1.5L “BlueCore” turbocharged engine creating 147 HP and 230 Nm of torque. The prominent features comprise of 6-leather seats, sunroof, cruise control, vehicle stability control, blind spot monitor and so on. The official unveiling might happen later this year.
The already introduced Changan Karvaan is another 7-seater passenger vehicle with dual AC. The vehicle is priced at Rs.1,080,000 (ex-factory) and is open for booking.
The two commercial vehicles, the Changan M8 pickup, and Changan M9 pickup were also present on the show. The automaker will soon start producing these vehicles locally in Pakistan. The company is also expanding its dealership network in the country.
We are really excited about the passenger sedans and the hatchback Changan has to offer to people here. There are two good sedans EADO and RAETON CC in their product lineup, which can give quite a tough time to popular sedans like Corolla and Civic in Pakistan. The new Benni hatchback also looks very promising and can beat the competitor Cultus and the Wagon R easily owing to its more powerful engine and highly advanced features.
