Spy Shots: Changan Yuexiang V7 is almost Ready for the Chinese auto market
Published on July 4, 2014 by Joey Wang
The best spy shots so far of the new Changan Yuexiang V7, showing a sleek compact sedan with a daring grille. The Yuexiang V7 is the successor of the good old Changan Yuexiang (without ‘V7’). Debut is scheduled for the Chengdu Auto Show in September with a launch in the Chinese auto market in October.
My favorite detail of the interior: a screen that looks like a pop up screen but is actually fixed. Great work.
Alloys daring as well, but the wheels look a tad too small. The Yuexiang X7 will be available with two engines: a 1.5 with 130hp and a new 1.5 turbo with 170hp and 230nm. Both engines will be mated to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic. Price is expected to start around 60.000 yuan and end around 90.000 yuan.
Invisible exhaust pipes just all right for a 1.5, but the 1.5 turbo needs something fat.
