Changan Announces Another Huge Price Hike for the Alsvin

Earlier this year, Master Changan Motors Limited (MCML) increased the prices of its vehicles that were not taken lightly by the government, resulting in the reversal of that price hike. However, the company has now announced a price hike for all of its vehicles.

Earlier today, MCML had announced a revision in prices only for the Alsvin models. However, recently, a report has come out that the company has revised the prices of all vehicles in its lineup. Effective, immediately, the new prices are as follows:

Vehicle Old Price (PKR) Revised Price (PKR) Increase (PKR)
Alsvin 1.37 MT 2,149,000 2,424,000 275,000
Alsvin 1.5 DCT 2,399,000 2,674,000 275,000
Alsvin Lumiere 1.5 DCT 2,589,000 2,864,000 275,000
Karvaan Standard 1,399,000 1,674,000 275,000
Karvaan Plus 1,539,000 1,814,000 275,000
M9 1,234,000 1,509,000 275,000

The Alsvin is a subcompact sedan from Changan that was launched in Pakistan earlier this year as a direct competitor to the Honda City and the Toyota Yaris.

The Alsvin is available here with two powertrain options — a 1.37 liter, naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine that delivers 95 hp and 135 Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, and a 1.5 liter, naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine that also makes 105 hp and 145 Nm of torque, that is mated to a 5-speed DCT automatic gearbox.

The Alsvin is a decently equipped vehicle with 2 airbags, parking sensors, cruise control, a modern infotainment system, an advanced driver’s display, keyless entry, push-button ignition, automatic climate control, among several other features.

The recent hike has brought Alsvin’s price almost equal to its competitors. However, being a relatively cheaper vehicle to buy than the Yaris and the City, it arguably offers better value than the two.

  • Kudos to Changan!
    An excellent move by them.
    It will definately boost the sale of thier Yaris and City sedans.

  • Will cause the increase in sale of Yaris/City, Alsvin is new will not be able to compete the famous brands. Very poor show.

  • So huge price increase & not good for newly entrant Changan. Customers will surely move to Honda and Toyota.

    • Respected, please anyone ask to Changan management not to increase price for those people those pay full payment after booking their vehicles

  • huge increase, its very disappointment who was purchasing alsvin due to low prices as compare to brands. its better to purchase city or Toyota which is hard cash.

  • What a stupid decision by changan. They’ve embodied everything that they originally claimed otherwise. Pathetic.

  • The price increase directly affects those who already booked thier vehicles since long and waiting for delivery as the companies first book a large numbers and then overnight increases the price.In the larger intrest of the people government must intervene and restrict the auto industry to get approval for any kind of price increase because it affects the people not anyone else.

  • Honda just increased their car prices by almost 4 lacs and people are losing their minds because of this one and calling it HUGE? lol

  • All the brothers who has booked Changan Three months ago MUST get together for suit in Bahawalpur high Court against this illegal act (decaty) of huge increase even on already booked vehicles.
    Then what mean by booking?
