Oshan X7 FutureSense: A Value Proposition

For a slightly lower cost, customers can now acquire the Oshan X7 FutureSense, offering a larger SUV with the highest road clearance and the largest wheelbase in its segment. Boasting a contemporary design, and a modern interior equipped with autonomous driving features like adaptive cruise control and auto emergency braking, the Oshan X7 becomes an attractive option.

Considerations Beyond Price

In this comparison, the focus is solely on top-selling vehicles in the segment, excluding the Haval 1.5t and Tiggo 8 Pro due to inadequate dealership networks, insufficient aftersales and spare parts support, and a lack of robust company backing. This underscores the importance of not only the initial price but also comprehensive support and reliability from the manufacturer and their network.

Strategic Timing for Purchase

With the recent upward trend in the USD to PKR exchange rate, showing signs of increasing, now might be an opportune moment for vehicle purchases. Potential future price escalations due to currency fluctuations make timely action advantageous.

Oshan X7’s Fuel Efficiency Advantage

Considering current fuel prices, the Oshan X7 offers the best-in-category fuel average of 14-15 kilometers per liter, surpassing the Tucson and Sportage’s 8-10 kmpl average. In the era of rising fuel costs, the Oshan X7’s fuel efficiency has become a crucial factor for budget-conscious buyers.
