Spy Shots of the facelifted Great Wall V80 MPV in China. The V80 is a mid-size MPV and a rare sight on Chinese roads as most Great Wall dealers, including one near my home in Beijing, simply don’t sell it. The facelifted version has to improve this dire situation. The facelift included a new grille, new headlights, new rear lights, new bumpers, and an improved interior.
The current Great Wall V80. Price starts at 79.900 yuan and ends at 114.800 yuan. Engines: 133hp 1.5 turbo, 143hp 2.0, and a 173hp 2.4. All petrol and all mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. Engines and transmissions will continue in the facelifted V80.
The facelifted V80 will debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and launch on the China car market early in the second half of the year.
Center console is all-new with a large touch screen, some chrome, and better-quality buttons.
So why do Chinese makers leave their old clunkers in production so long? They don’t seem to generate big sales numbers.
“Voleex” name is gone?
