Chery has officially confirmed that the new Chery A4 sedan will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show later this month. A new spy shots, likely snapped during a photo shoot, shows a sleek sedan with again the yet mysterious new Chery logo on the grille.
We have seen many spy shots of many different new Chery cars over the last few months, some have the new logo, and some don’t. See this photo for an M4 with a slightly different grille and the current logo, and here she is without any logo. What is all means is unclear, we will keep you posted.
Power will come from a 1.6 with 126hp and 160nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. Chery is still working on a 1.4 turbo for the A4, but that engine won’t be available at launch. Size: 4650/1820/1480, wheelbase is 2700. Price of the Chery A4 will start around 110.000 yuan.
Interior neat enough. Quality of the plastics is improving with each new Chery. Alu-look on the center console. Not much chrome here. Screen of reasonable size. Manual gear box.
Will it replace anything or will it be another model to add to what is already too big a range of models?
It will not replace another vehicle in Chery! Although Chery has plenty of models in each category already, the A4 (M16) is one of the most importand Chery cars so far as it is engineered to a new level of quality for Chery. Sounds like a advertisement slogan but in fact is true! Hotformed body panels from Benteler achieving 4 star euro NCAP, first class suppliers like Metzeler for sealings or Brose for locks and regulators and many more…Chery has invested a lot to get this car to benchmark level. Without any doubt, this will be the best Chery so far!
