With the development of new competitors in Pakistan’s car business, consumers who were previously deprived of choice now have alternatives to the main three automakers that controlled the sector for over 30 years. Furthermore, because the consumer price index is higher than it was in 2021, individuals are spending less on non-essentials, which means they are shopping for good automobiles at reasonable costs. Changan Automobiles China appears to have recognized the plight of Pakistani car buyers.
For example, the Karavaan (an all-purpose vehicle) provided more to customers than its competitors, prompting it to become the second-most popular automobile among new entrants in Pakistan.

As standard OEM sedan prices approached five million rupees, the demand for a smaller, more affordably priced sedan arose, and Changan introduced the Alsvin, which ranked third among new entrants in terms of units sold in April 2022, competing against the Honda City and Toyota Yaris.
How Much Does the Changan Oshan X7 Cost?
The Oshan X7 is available in seven-seater comfort and premium five-seater future sense configurations, with prices starting at Rs 6.05 million and Rs 6.35 million, respectively.
What Is Changan Oshan X7 ‘Future Sense’?
Adaptive cruise control, front and back parking sensors, 360-view cameras, heated seats, radar detected collision warning, and autonomous and assisted brakes are all included in the seven-seater comfort model. Changan might be the first OEM to take Pakistan’s auto sector and customers one step forward as the globe progresses toward self-driving autonomous automobiles, while competitors have compelled consumers to buy models that most people in the rest of the world drove two or more years ago.
Changan Oshan X7 Euro 6 Engine
The 1.5-liter turbocharged engine in both models is Pakistan’s first Euro 6 engine. We’ve all heard of Euro I and Euro II, but what exactly do they mean? In order to minimize carbon emissions, the European Emission Standard has progressively compelled manufacturers to conform to harmful gas emission requirements while also enhancing engine dependability and longevity.
The Euro 6 produces less hazardous pollutants than other engines, is more fuel-efficient, and has a 160,000 km durability test. The Changan Blue Core engine was tested for 249 hours uninterrupted at 5,500 rpm, setting the Guinness World Record.
The Oshan X7 has a 1.5L turbocharged engine that generates 184.7 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque, which is 12 horsepower and 75 Nm more than its immediate competition, the Kia Sorento 2.4. Although the Toyota Fortuner has higher torque, the Oshan X7 is only 60% of the Toyota Fortuner’s pricing.
Changan Oshan X7 a Chinese Manufacturer?
The Oshan X7, with its luxury ivory inside, ventilated seats, and an engine conceived and developed in the United Kingdom and produced in Pakistan, may just shatter the Chinese dependability stereotype. Furthermore, Changan provides a five-year or 150,000-kilometer guarantee, which is longer than any other automobile manufacturer.
How Will I Get Parts and Will They Be Expensive?
Pakistan has long been a consumer of nations that specialise in right-hand manufacturing, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. The Oshan X7, on the other hand, will be sold from Pakistan to other right-hand markets. Changan opened their first global right-hand-drive production facility in Pakistan as a joint venture with Master Motors, and their first export order is said to have been confirmed, adding to the belief that owning and maintaining an Oshan X7 is less expensive than owning and maintaining other similar cars.
