New Spy Shots show that the car previously known as the Brilliance F20 will be called Brilliance H3 when it hits the Chinese car market in March. One fiery red example was seen completely naked at a dealer conference in a hotel. Happily, someone took a few photos.
The H3 has become a very good looking vehicle, fastback shape, sporty and sleek, with well-crafted lights rear and fore. Public debut will be on the Beijing Auto Show in April. Price will range from 74.800 yuan to 88.800 yuan.
There will be two four-cylinder petrol engines available: a 1.5 with 112hp and 145nm, and a 1.5 turbo with 150hp and 220nm. Both engines are mated to a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic.
Size: 4640/1790/1445, and wheelbase is 2660.
Profile is near perfect and the wheels are rightly sized. Thin chrome strip under the side windows.
The interior is nice. A lot of black and gray, and the center tunnel seems narrow. Screen is big enough but it stands awkwardly on top of the stack. Seats are somewhat hip, in two kinds of gray with a multi colored stripe in the middle.
Flat bottomed wheel for sporty, with some red on it too.
Racy five-twin spokes with red brake calipers.
Subtle spoiler integrated in the boot lid. Exhaust pipe is invisible.
Grille seems to be the weakest point of the design, T-bone chrome structure just doesn’t really fit with the rest of the car. A more conventional grille with vertical bars might have been better.
The same car seen before the start of the festivities.
But in anyway, the H3 is coming soon.
