The View is design-wise inspired by the Toyota Hicace, as the Japanese brand continues to serve as an ‘example’ for many Chinese automakers. The engines for the View S are the same as for the View: a Mitsubishi 2.4 petrol (yes, the 2.4 petrol!) with 136hp and 200nm, or a Cummins ISF 2.8 liter turbodiesel with 131hp and 280nm. Both engines are mated to a five-speed manual, an automatic transmission is not available. The S is a huge vehicle: 5380/1920/2285mm, wheelbase is 3110mm.

Interior as in the base View but for the wood. This kind of vehicles are mighty popular among taxi companies, hotels, tourism companies, and the government is using them a lot as well. Big car for the money, but don’t expect too much refinement or quality.

The S comes in captain-seat configuration with six comfortable seats. The base variant can seat up to 12.

One chair comes with a feet-rest and a desk, which seems an odd combination.

  1. Quality of the interior, particularly the dash, looks awful. Disappointing effort, Foton can do better than this (and will need to in export markets).
