The CS75 will be positioned above the Chang’an CS35. There will be two engines available: a 1.8 turbo with 180hp and 230nm, and a 2.0 with 158hp, both mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. Size: 4648/1849/1694, wheelbase is 2700. Price will start around 100.000 yuan.
The Changan CS75 will battle for buyers in one of the most competitive segments in the Chinese car market, and a segment where the local Chinese automakers are basically alone. Main competitors are the Haval H6, Haima 7, and Besturn X80.
The CS75 will also be part of Changan’s upcoming attack on European markets that will start in 2015. The long-expected move will also include the Changan Eado and mentioned CS35. Price of the CS75 in Europe will start around 20.000 Euro, making it a competitor for all sorts of hatchbacks and smaller SUV’s.
So far we have only seen the CS75 in red and once in gray.
