The Zotye T600 2.0T has been launched on the Chinese car market, powered by a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol engine mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed DCT sending horses to the front wheels. Output is 177hp and 250nm. Price for the Zotye T600 2.0T starts at 123.800 yuan and ends at 135.800 yuan.
The 2.0T comes with a fancy full-leather interior.

The Zotye T600 launched in late 2013 and is a reasonable success. The only engine available until the coming of the 2.0 turbo was a 1.5 turbo with 150hp and 215nm, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Shiny chrome exhaust pipe tips whereas the 1.5 has to do with black.
Bonus! Photos of a launch ceremony for the T600 2.T at a local Zotye dealer in the great city of Meizhou in Guangdong Province:

Exterior looks vaguely similar to the Audi Q5 with a VW front grille… really unfortunate (just like the Z600 sedan). As much as Zotye have bigger expectations, they have a long way to work harder in terms of originality.
This is arguably the best Zotye model so far. More ambitious designs would help Zotye become an international seller (Like Kia;)).
