Ever since different auto manufacturers have discovered what a big market Pakistan is for SUVs, they’ve been introducing one sports utility vehicle after another. 

It was not too long ago when Changan introduced Oshan X7 in Pakistan. Encouraged by its healthy sales, the company has decided to launch not one but two more SUVs in Pakistan – Changan CS35 Plus and Changan Oshan X5. The former is expected to be launched at a price less than Oshan X7.

Changan CS35 Plus globally comes in three variants . We will discuss the features, specifications, and performance of the Changan CS35 Plus top of the line variant here.

Changan CS35 Plus Exterior and Interior

Let us discuss the exterior and interior of the Changan CS35 Plus.


Changan CS35 Plus looks like a smaller Range Rover due to its front grille placement, size and style. Its LED auto induction headlamps are sleek but not very aggressive. Elegant 18 inch alloy wheels give it a sporty look from the side. It comes equipped with DRL, front and rear fog lamps.There are red linings on all four sides. However, the rear lines are split into 2 smaller lines around the edges of the rear bumper. Side mirrors are adjustable, heated, and have LED side repeaters. 



CS35 Plus has red and black leather seats. The red color is the same as the red lines on its exterior. Panoramic sunroof enhances the glory of its thematic interior. It comes with front and rear armrests along with cup holders. CS35 Plus has 4-way manual and 2-way electrically adjusted driver’s seat and 4-way manual adjustable passenger seat in the front row.

No one could imagine that a 1400cc engine would produce around 158 hp and 260 N.m torque. Its power and torque are more than the KIA Stonic, MG ZS, and Chery Tiggo 4 Pro. So, if this Changan SUV is launched at a competitive price, it will give a tough time to its local competitors.
