This Is The New WEY VV5 SUV For China

Published on July 27, 2017 by Joey Wang


This is the brand new WEY VV5, the somewhat smaller sister of the WEY VV7. The blue car on the photos is the sport version, called the VV5s. Launch on the Chinese market is scheduled for September. Price will range from about 120.000 to 160.000 yuan.

It really looks a lot like the VV7 but it is smaller on all sides:

VV5: 4462/1857/1638, wheelbase 2680.
VV7: 4749/1931/1655, wheelbase 2950.

The VV5s is powered by a 2.0 turbo with 197hp and 355nm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed DCT, sending horses to all four wheels.

The black B-C pillars, black wheels, and twin-exhaust pipes are for the s only. It is s, not S.

The interior looks great quality wise albeit a bit dark. Steering wheel fit a very tick edge, three vents under the touch screen, and of course perforated pedals for more speed.

The high end versions of the VV5 get a fully digital 12.3 inch instrument panel, the cheaper versions go analogue.

The main screen measures 9 inches. The infotainment system is equipped with Apple CarPlay and with Baidu CarLife.

Shorter than the VV7 but still loads of space in the back, as this sweet little lady kindly demonstrates.

WEY logo under the window, black strip between the lights, race-car style brake light in the bumper, and those big fat pipes.

    That screen, although clearly in the line of sight, looks like a fish out of water, and like its just waiting to be snagged, and pulled off the instrument panel.

        About what – didn’t say either that Maserati was copying it. If you always need to relat one car to the other it’s not my fault – your aunt looks like your sister by the way …
