The Hongqi B-Concept has been launched on the 2016 Beijing Auto Show in China, sporting a massive hexagonal grille and the Hongqi ‘Red Flag’ ornament on the hood. The B-Concept previews a future mid-sized sedan that will be positioned below the Hongqi H7.
Suicide doors, a short front overhang and a long rear overhang.
Design has some Lincoln touches but we hear the real thing will be based on the platform of the current Mazda 6 Atenza sedan, which is made by FAW-Mazda. FAW, or First Auto Works, is also the owner of the Hongqi brand.
Interior is a work of art with white surfaces mixing with dark wood, an all digital dash, and four separate seats. Honqi said the concept was fitted with a Bose audio system with speakers build into the seats, seen there on the far side of the driver’s seat, next to the headrest.
Very nice touch there with a traditional Chinese tea set in the arm rest.
The steering wheel is properly futuristic with an LCD screen in the middle. How does that airbag..?
Check that overhang!, and the racy lip under the bumper. Hongqi doesn’t say anything about power so this concept likely doesn’t have an engine.
Wine red a new-style color for a Hongqi, they are normally black-only.
See you on the road in a year or two.
sigh…………. please build your own platforms instead of mooching off vw and mazdas
Well, it says that the coming Hongqi H5 may have the shape like the B-Concept,and it is based on the Mazda 6 platform. However it is just hearsay. More information shows that the coming H5 is based on a shortened H7 chassis… Umm… Sounds good.
You are right. It is the H5 and it will be based on the Mazda 6. I have made some changes in the article.
Wow, definetely looks the part. I’m kinda suprised all those screens ain’t fake but actually working. Totally love the rims too.
Love the grill, the rims, the lines, the interior, if the production car is anything like the concept this car will convert people who still think all the Chinese build are knock-offs and cheap rubbish; this car could be their Lexus LS
