Changan Alsvin 3rd Generation
Expected Price = 23-28 Lacks PKR
If we considered changan about it reputation that may be not good enough but we can say it is also among the some other well known names that have been working in Pakistan from many years, because from the quite old times we have been seeing old double cabin Changan pickups in Pakistan with the name of gilgit and kalash those are still sold by karakoram motors. As these are the not worthy vehicles which can help to depict the true image of changan in Pakistan but in the reality changan is the Chinese government owned brand that is considered the 4th largest brand in china. Moreover according to details company owns 128 Billion RMB Assets all around the world with 80 thousands employees, this may now clear the littler bit image of changan worthiness.
