Last week, we covered spy shots of a Chang An UNI-branded sedan. We have now obtained some specifications along with photos of the vehicle without any camouflage. Called the UNI-V, the sedan completes Changan’s UNI- K.T.V. trifecta!

Changan designers have given the UNI-V a strongly geometric front facia. The blended air intake gives the UNI-V an EV-like look while large intakes beneath are probably for aesthetics more than functionality. Sharp headlights and angular creases give the vehicle a sinister presence when viewed head-on. Interestingly, the headlights and the hood bulge remind me of the Ford Mondeo.

Confident, defined lines take over on the side profile, with a visually long hood, and a long roofline ending in a fastback rear. With optional 18-inch wheels, the UNI-V looks visually pleasant and not over-the-top. Retractable door handles are present of course, as with most contemporary Chinese vehicles of this category.

Retro-futuristic rear light bars are cool again, a design cue also present on the UNI-V.  Dual chromed exhaust tips are sporty, as well as the low center third brake light. Apparently, a version of the UNI-V also has an electrically retractable rear spoiler- most likely intended to be a cool party trick.

Along with the released photos, some information was also released regarding the UNI-V. Per the previous article, Changan Auto will use their 1.5T 138kW engine on the UNI-V. There is no mention of the hybrid or 2.0T power system, unfortunately.

Physical dimensions are quoted to be 4680*1838*1430mm, with a wheelbase of 2750mm in length. The dimensions are quite competitive against similarly spec’d vehicles like the Honda Civic and Lynk & Co 03.

Will the UNI-V’s sporty looks gain favor with young buyers? Stay tuned to Car News China for future news regarding the UNI-V and other Changan auto vehicles.

  1. Imagine this car had four circles on the bonnet and said “A3” on the trunk lid. It would sell like crazy in Europe. Chinese car design has come a long way and Changan’s UNI department is strong example.
