The Chery Riich G2 hatchback debuted at the Beijing Auto Show, Chery is also working on a sedan-version but that one will debut later, likely at the Guangzhou Auto Show in December. The Riich G2 will be listed on the Chinese car market in July, price will start around 60.000 yuan.
Power comes from a 1.5 that poops out 130hp and 158nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. A less powerful and cheaper 1.6 is expected later, and Chery is considering a 1.5 turbo for the G2 which would make it a ‘small hot hatch’, a whole new market segment for China. Size: 3995mm/1788mm/1555mm, wheelbase is 2500.
A well designed machine, certainly not too boring and original. Chery seems to be working on a ‘design language’, something they don’t have at the moment and never had before.
