Spy Shots showing an extensive facelift for the Zotye Z500 sedan, scheduled to hit the Chinese car market in Q3. The lift includes new bumpers, new headlights, new rear lights, and an updated interior. Buyers may choose between different grilles, and there will be a new sport model.
The current Z500 was launched in November 2014. Price starts at 76.800 and ends at 101.800 yuan. Lone engine is a 150hp 1.5 turbo mated to a five-speed manual or a CVT. Engine and transmissions will continue in the facelifted car and price will be about the same.
The sport model gets fiery red paint, streamlined black mirrors, racy wheels, and turbo badges. Sadly, it is all just for the eye; it will have exactly the same 1.5 turbo under the bonnet as the regular model.
