Thanks to Alsvin and Karvaan, Changan is already a household name in Pakistan. Good news for Changan lovers, who were waiting for the company to launch its SUV. Oshan X7 Plus is a mid-size crossover SUV that is about to be launched as Changan sees vast opportunities in the SUV segment in Pakistan.
Many think that the company is going to launch its previous version, Oshan X7. However, there is speculation about the company bringing its latest, redesigned, and better version for the Pakistani market.
Oshan X7 Plus is the bigger version of the X7. However, it beats the latter in appearance, space, and power. The front grille, head, and tail lamps of this SUV are redesigned. It was launched in the 2021’s Shanghai Autoshow. We can only hope that Changan will launch it with the same features here as well.
Variants of Oshan X7 Plus
There is an electric variant of the Oshan X7, which is not planned to be launched in Pakistan yet. When we talk about X7 Plus, it might be launched in two variants (manual and automatic) having the same specs and features. There is uncertainty when it comes to seating capacity as we might get a 5-seat or a 7-seat variant.
Engine and performance
The engine and performance of an SUV are the two important factors for most people. Oshan X7 Plus has a more powerful engine than its predecessor X7. Its 1.5L engine produces upto 188 horsepower and 300NM torque, as compared to the 178 horsepower and 265NM torque produced by X7. Its 7-speed wet dual-clutch gearbox has high efficiency.
Many of you want to know the fuel efficiency of this SUV. Well, the good news is that its fuel economy ranges from 10.41 km/l to 16.1 km/l depending on the conditions and variants.
The Interior of the Oshan X7 Plus seems sporty yet premium. A multi-functional steering wheel, 12.3 inches touch screen and a 10 inches screen in the dashboard give a pretty unique feel. This vehicle gives a strong sense of technology in every manner. A strong plastic interior along with perforated leather seats are more than enough for many people. This SUV also comes with noise and vibration reduction features that enhance comfort levels. The position of the gear knob along with buttons around it gives it a modern look.
The X7 Plus is large enough to be compared with the Fortuner and other SUVs available in the local market. There is a notable difference between its height and length as compared to Fortuner, but the width is almost the same. It has a corrugated grille that gives a unique overall look to the front side. Sleek headlamps have DRL on the upper side. Its roofline is almost straight. Its sharp tail lights on the backside are connected, unlike the Oshan X7 that have separated ones.
