Dealer presentations are very dangerous in a time when everybody got a phone with several camera’s. Luxgen has found out… During a presentation in China they showed slides from the still very secret Luxgen 5 hatchback and another even more secret new Luxgen SUV. Luxgen is a brand of the Taiwanese Yulong Group. Luxgen cars are made in Taiwan and in China by the Dongfeng-Yulong joint venture. The Luxgen 7 SUV was launched in China in October last year, the Luxgen MPV will be launched very soon and the new Luxgen 5 sedan will hit the Chinese car market near the end of the year.

Luxgen 5 hatchback

The Luxgen 5 hatchback is obviously based on the Luxgen 5 sedan. The Luxgen 5 has already been launched at the Taiwanese car market. Two engines: 1.8 turbo with 150hp and 230nm or a 2.0 turbo with 170hp and 256nm. Gearbox: 6-speed automatic. Price of the Luxgen 5 (converted from Taiwanese prices) starts at 23.000 USD and ends at almost 30.000 USD.

Luxgen new SUV

This new SUV is a surprise. Expected in 2013. It seems bigger than the Luxgen 7 but it is likely based on the same platform. Maybe a more powerful sportier version.

  1. I don’t think the car that was shown on the second slide is an SUV, it instead looks very much like a wagon, perhaps it is a wagon version of the Luxgen 5 sedan, which would bring the bodystyles to 3. When is Luxgen going to develop a smaller car to slot below the Luxgen 5 sedan, wagon, and hatch/Luxgen 7 SUV and MPV?

  2. the cars are really good looking. If anything they do the tech really well since Taiwan has so many good electronics companies.
