BYD Song MPV Is Almost Ready For The Chinese Car Market
Published on August 1, 2017 by Tycho de Feijter
The latest photos of the production version of the new BYD Song MPV, a stylish seven-seat people carrier. It will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in late August and launch on the Chinese car market in Q4. Name talk: some say it will be called the Song MPV, other say it will be names Song 7 MPV.
MPVs are fast becoming more popular as Chinese families are growing. Many households are have two kids now, and usually a pair of grandparents living in. So that’s six seats already…
The interior is very dark and combines an analog instrument panel with a very large Tesla-like touch screen. Low-spec versions get a smaller screen.
Engines: 154hp 1.5 turbo and a rather old 140hp 2.0, both mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed DCT. BYD is also working on a rather spectacular 303hp hybrid but that variant will launch in 2018.
Size: 4680/1810/1680, and wheelbase is 2785.
