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.

Likely the best looking new BYD after the Dynasty, both were drawn by BYD’s new chief designer Wolfgang Egger.

    Despite its Toyota design characteristics, I like the bold and brawny looking front end. But as we move rearward we see the size is rather small, with no sliding door. And no one has yet opened the hatch to reveal the rather small cargo space.
