Engines are the same as in the Hongqi H7 sedan: a 188hp 1.8 turbo, a 204hp 2.0 turbo, and a 231hp 3.0. A hybrid variant may be added to the lineup in the future. The HS7 is the first mass-market Hongqi SUV, but not the last. The brand will launch a smaller compact SUV in 2019. The ultra expensive Hongqi LS5 SUV appears to be a government-only car and won’t be available on the general market.
The interior will be loaded with leather. The instrument panel is fully digital. There will be a large touch screen in the middle flanked by vertical air vents.
Trendy little shifter with two cup holders on the right.
Lots of space in the back.
Size wise it seems about as big as a BMW X5 or Volvo XC90.
Enormous grille a Hongqi hallmark.
