Having already launched Karvaan minivan and M8 & M9 pickups, the company was in process of introducing the CX70T SUV in Pakistan and has been showcasing the LHD (left hand drive) versions at various auto shows since last year, however it is now being reported that the new COS X7 SUV is being considered instead of the CX70T for our market. As per our sources, the company may still launch both the SUVs in parallel with CX70T as a relatively cheaper option, while COS X7 as a premium offering.

COS is a new sub-brand under the umbrella of Changan’s commercial vehicle division Oshan (Oushang in Chinese). The COS X7 which made its debut at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show earlier this year, is the first compact SUV in their lineup and is powered by the same 1.5 liter turbocharged engine that serves the duty in most Changan vehicles.

The X7 is positioned as a 5-seat SUV, and measures 4700/1860/1690mm having a wheelbase of 2780mm. It sits on the new modular MPA platform developed by Changan’s global R&D center and comes loaded with rich safety and tech equipment including L2.5 advanced driver assistance systems, APA5.0 automatic parking and TINNOVE car intelligent system with AI voice control and face recognition technologies.

Furthermore according to our sources, Changan is also considering to introduce the new Alsvin sedan that has a BlueCore 1.5 liter DVVT low-carbon emission engine under its hood and comes mated to a 5-speed manual and 5-speed automatic transmission.

Looks nice but people will buy sedan more than expensive SUV. Changan should keep this in mind

A low priced SUV (preferably 7 seater) is need of the pakistani market. Success of BRV is an example, however, typical of pakistani car manufacturers …….. price of BRV has been raised beyond the range of middle class.
Any new entry having price max upto 2 million is likely to have a sure success
