BYD Fang Cheng Bao Leopard 5 spy shots

As we can see in spy shots, the Fang Cheng Bao Leopard 5 is finished in vivid yellow body color. Its front end has rectangular headlights that are integrated into the front grille. The Leopard 5 has a blocky body shape with a flat windshield, lots of plastic trim in the lower part of the body and black rims.

Other features of the Leopard 5 are huge rear view mirrors, roof rails and remarkable ground clearance. Approach and departure angles of this SUV are also quite impressive. And we can also highlight a strange sensor that sits in the front fender of the Leopard 5. It looks similar to the LiDAR. The spied vehicle has relatively little space behind the C-pillar. So, it is a question if this car will have the third row of seats. Maybe, it will be available only with five seats inside.

Its rear bumper has got strange chrome plating. Here, we can also see its rear suspension, which is a multi-link one. In general, the Leopard 5 stays in line with the early teasers.
