Best SUV to Buy as the Revised Prices Become Effective

The month of October was filled with many price revisions. Once the industry has settled, the SUV market looks like this.

Given the various displacements and associated taxation, the on road prices differentiate heavily. For instance, despite a narrow price gap between the two, the on road price of Sorento and Sportage are worlds apart.

Let’s analyze the on-road prices of the Oshan X7 FutureSense, Sportage AWD, and Tucson following the recent industry-wide price adjustments. The Oshan X7 FutureSense, which includes WHT+registration, comes in at an on-road price of PKR 9,191,460. In contrast, the Sportage AWD, factoring in WHT+Registration+transportation cost, is priced at PKR 9,337,720. Meanwhile, the Tucson’s on-road cost is PKR 9,223,100.

For a slightly lower cost, customers can now acquire a larger SUV in the form of the Oshan X7 FutureSense. This model boasts the highest road clearance and the largest wheelbase in its segment. Additionally, it features a contemporary design and a modern interior equipped with autonomous driving features such as adaptive cruise control and auto emergency braking.

It’s crucial to highlight that in this comparison, we’re focusing solely on the top-selling vehicles in the segment. The Haval 1.5t and Tiggo 8 Pro are excluded due to their inadequate dealership network, insufficient aftersales and spare parts support, and a lack of robust company backing. This underscores the significance of considering not only the initial price but also the comprehensive support and reliability offered by the manufacturer and their network.

We are of the opinion that now is an ideal moment to proceed with your vehicle purchase. Observing the recent upward trend in the USD to PKR exchange rate, it is showing signs of increasing once more. This development is likely to exert a negative influence on vehicle prices in the near future. Therefore, taking action now may be advantageous before potential price escalations in the coming days.

With the current fuel prices, the Oshan X7 offers best in the category fuel average of 14-15 kilometers per liter (as compared to 8-10 Kmpl average of Tucson and Sportage) based on various reports from customers.

In current times, fuel efficiency has become a key factor. While the existing cost of hybrid and electric systems take the new energy car prices high, the Oshan X7 offers respite by being light on the pocket in everyday usage thanks to its latest tech 1.5-liter turbocharged Euro 6 engine which also produces mind blowing 300 NM of torque.

Oshan X7 is available in two variants: 5 Seater FutureSense  and 7 Seater Comfort with industry leading 5 year / 150,000 km warranty supported by always-available spare parts through 28 dealerships in 18 cities of the country.
