So, when the company announced the price of the Oshan X7, not many were surprised. However, what is surprising is that when considering its specs and features, its real price seems less than many C-segment compact SUVs in Pakistan.

Oshan X7 offers more safety features than KIA Sportage and Hyundai Tucson. MG HS is the safest with its well-equipped MG Pilot feature. However, it’s also asking for an additional Rs.3 million, which isn’t justified by any means.
MG HS is the best choice in this category if you can settle for a slightly used car. There are plenty of MG HS listed around Rs.6 to 6.5 million on OLX.
However, if you want to go for a new SUV, then consider getting X7. Its booking has started.
