Master Changan Motors Limited (MCML) has been among the most dominant new players in the market. All three of its vehicles, namely, Karvaan, Oshan X7, and Alsvin have become public favorites in their respective segments.
Karvaan, in particular, has become the company’s best-selling vehicle, with a massive market share in the small passenger van segment. The company has decided to capitalize on its popularity and upgrade the interior of the Karvaan Plus.
According to the details, the interior now has new beige-gold seats with 66% more cushioning, added four layers of spring, and 16 spring retainers.
Performance-wise, the van features a 1.0 liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine that makes 68 horsepower and 92 newton-meters of torque, which travels to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.
In terms of brakes, you get a solid disc setup up front and a conventional drum brake setup outback. The suspension setup consists of Mcpherson struts up front and a torsion bar leaf spring setup outback.
Further enhancements involve:
Electric power steering (EPS)
Front power windows
Beam height adjuster
3-point ELR seatbelts for driver and front passenger
Seatbelt reminder system
Adjustable headrests for all seats
4-way adjustable seats for front row
2-way adjustable seats for the second row
Fold-down seats for 2nd and 3rd row
Air Conditioning with 2-zone AC vents
Stereo system with MP3/AM and FM/AUX+USB support
The price of the upgraded Karvaan Plus is Rs. 2.999,000. While it is over Rs. 1 million more expensive than the Suzuki Bolan, Karvaan is also a much better vehicle. Although, the buying decision ultimately comes down to each person’s preference.
