United Alpha – A First Look Review
United Alpha is the first car to be launched in Pakistan in 2021. This car’s vital aspect is that it is a much-needed addition in the economic/budget car segment. The company has introduced the car with the price tag of Rs1.4million, which indeed is good. In this article, we will give you a first look review of this new hatchback so that you can make an educated guess.
United Motors have installed 1000cc 16-valve engine, Euro4 compline, meaning its fuel emission is as per global standards. This is the third locally-manufactured car in this segment in Pakistan, after KIA Picanto and Suzuki Cultus. The most important feature of Alpha is its four cylinders, making it more powerful against the Japanese cars in the market, which usually comes with three cylinders.
Exterior of United Alpha:
The car’s front shape is quite curvy, which we think would help in its whole aerodynamics. The hatchback has a Projector Headlamps and a bold front grille. If you come to its side-profile, you will see it is quite curvy. The first thing you will notice is its 13-inch alloy rims.
Furthermore, the car has body-colour side-view mirrors, and piano black door handles.
At the back, the most noticeable feature is its bold backlights and fog lamps. Furthermore, it has a back wiper, which is a great option in small cars in Pakistan. Moreover, the vehicle has a high-mounted brake lamp and reflectors. You can also see a rearview camera at the back, along with emblems of United and Alpha.
Boot Space in United Alpha:
The first thing you will see in the trunk is boot separator and Emergency Triangle, an excellent tool in emergencies to notify the traffic that your car has broken down. The company has also offered a spare wheel, placed in the boot.
The space in the boot is quite ample, and you can increase it by folding the backseats.
Interior of United Alpha:
The first noticeable feature in the interior is its two-tone design. United has used Dark Grey and Light Grey colour in the whole interior, including seats, inside of doors, and dashboard. The third colour in the interior is Piano Black, which is used on Steering Wheel and around infotainment touchscreen.
Infotainment System and Salient Features:
The second thing that will grab your attention is a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen, which is rather big for such a small car. However, its placement is perfect in the centre of the dashboard. It offers functions like Bluetooth Connectivity, Radio, Media and Clock.
Under it, you will find the AC Control Unit, made with Piano Black Color, and under it, you have 12V Charging Port and USB dock.
If you come to the Central Console, you will find two Coffee/Mug holders, and then Gear Transmission Knob.
If you come to storage space, the car has a Glove Box in the dashboard, along with slots in car doors. Also, all the windows and Steering of the vehicle are Powered, another exciting feature for small cars in Pakistan.
The new hatchback has a digital speedometer, which will give you only basic information, including trip and car mileage.
