The first Spy Shots of the new Yema T80 SUV, the largest SUV Yema has ever made. It will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in September, Chengdu being Yema’s hometown, and launch on the Chinese car market in October. Price will start somewhere around 170.000 yuan.
Design is an odd mix of Haval, Infiniti and a lot of Volkswagen.
The Yema T80 will be powered by a 1.8 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with about 170 horses, mated to a six-speed manual or a CVT. Yema is also working on a 2.0 turbo with some 200 horsepower, that engine will join the lineup in mid 2017.
Size: 4720/1820/1716, and wheelbase is 2800.
The interior is very Mercedes-like, especially the vents and the touch screen, but nevertheless impressive for a Yema. Beige leather mixes nicely with shiny stuff.
Digital instrument panel. Chinese car makers are ditching the conventional dials, in a year or two it will be all digital. Steering wheel bound in leather with a sporty flat bottom.
