New spy shots showing the upcoming Haima S5 SUV in purple, proving yet again the new Chinese car is ready for the China auto market. The Haima S5 SUV will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and it will hit the market in early 2014.
The Haima S5 will be powered by a turbocharged 1.5 liter four-cylinder with 150hp and 210nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. A naturally aspirated 1.5 will likely become available as well, but probably not at launch. Price of the 1.5 turbo will start around 80.000 yuan.
First clear shot of the dashboard showing a traditional-Chinese messy overall design, with some nice details such as the sporty dials, the steering wheel with chrome inlets, and the screen hidden so deep under black roof that nobody will be able to read it. Manuel gearbox here.
