Looks like Changan is seriously considering to expand its wings in Pakistani market. Having already imported a batch of vehicles consisting of UNI-T compact crossover, Hunter double cabin pickup and Oshan X7 SUV, the company is not going to stop just here and has imported the UNI-K mid-sized crossover SUV for trials & tests, according to the import data.
The UNI-K was first previewed as Changan Vision-V concept at the Beijing Auto Show in September 2020, and its production version debuted at the Guangzhou Auto Show in November 2020. Mechanically, the UNI-K is based on the Changan CS95 SUV but with an extended wheelbase. It measures 4,865mm in length, 1,948mm in width and 1,700mm in height; while having a wheelbase of 2,890mm. Compared to this, the UNI-T is 4,515mm long, 1,870mm wide and 1,565mm tall with a 2,710mm wheelbase.
Aimed at young & passionate car buyers, the UNI-K boasts an aggressive design language, much like the UNI-T crossover. The slim front & rear headlights and the intricate grille up front adds a lot of character to the car. Design is interesting, especially the rear-roof spoiler section, which combines a stabilizing-fin sort of thing with a spoiler and a rear-camera.
Under the hood, there is a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine good for 229 hp and and 360 Nm, paired to an Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Inside, the three connected LCDs are able to show information about tire pressure, navigation, speed, multimedia, gear and etc. Besides, the 12.3-inch console-mounted display adopts Corning Gorilla cold-bent glass with anti-reflective and anti-scratch coating, and supports gesture control and OTA (over-the-air) upgrades.
Now that the vehicle has landed on our soil, we might be able to see it running on the roads in near future. Stay tuned to CarSpiritPK for more information.
