After a long wait with months of speculations and test drives on road, Changan Alsvin has been finally launched in Pakistan.
The Chinese company has joined hands with master-motor. A $100 million vehicle assembly plant in Karachi. The production capacity of the plant is close to 30,000 units annually. Changan has seventeen dealerships across Pakistan currently – one in KP, one in Balochistan, four in Sindh, and eleven in Punjab.
The Alsvin is a luxury looking sedan with an aggressive yet stylish looking front face. It has a large front grille with a sharp pair of headlights with DRL’s that look like a dragon’s eyes. With cutting edge LED foglights at the bottom of the front bumper and a smooth design.
The side profile of the car gives a compact family sedan feel with sharp lines that do not make it look like a car with just flat aluminum sheets. It has 15-inch alloy rims with body-colored door handles that give it a clean finish.
The rear profile of the car features standard looking lights, bumper, and reflectors. Overall the sedan is decent and looks electric in the blue tone shown in the photos.
The inside of the car has an ivory-beige interior with a modern cockpit and simple design.
It has a sporty-looking steering wheel with a flat bottom and control switches, to control the volume and attend calls. It has a protruding 7-inch touch-sensitive display and a spatial console box and glove compartment.
Here are all the specs of the new Changan Alsvin.
The sedan is available in two powertrain options. The base model has a 1.37-liter 4-cylinder Blue Core engine with Dual-Variable Valve Timing Technology (DVVT ) that delivers up to 95 hp and 135 Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The mid and the top models both have a 1.5 liter 4-cylinder Blue Core engine with DVVT that makes 105 hp, 145 Nm of torque, and are mated to a 5-speed DCT automatic gearbox each.
For suspension setup, the vehicle has a MacPherson strut setup at the front and a torsion bar coil-spring setup at the back that allow for a smooth ride over bumps and speed breakers.
The Alsvin also has ventilated disc brakes at the front with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) Technology and conventional drum brakes at the back.
The Price of the sedan will be announced on January 21. However, official bookings will begin next month and the buyers should not make any payments anywhere until then.
The car was much anticipated by the Pakistani market and we’re hoping that the sedan gets the attention that it is looking for. So far, all the features and variants are according to the market.
