Recall that the Dongfeng 580 three-row crossover has been produced since 2016. And now the second generation Dongfeng Fengon 580 crossover has debuted on the Chinese market, which no longer has a single logo of the main Dongfeng concern.
The novelty has hardly changed in dimensions: the length is 4720 mm, the width is 1865 mm, and the height reaches 1710 mm. The wheelbase increased by a modest 5 mm (up to 2785 mm), and the platform itself remained unchanged, although its expensive modification with a rear multi-link suspension was used.
The body of Dongfeng Fengon 580 is completely new, with different proportions and more “severe” style. The headlights of the crossover are now LED, and the only feature inherited from the first generation is the fifth door across the entire width of the car, on which the “main” taillights are completely located. The three-row salon Dongfeng Fengon 580 is offered in two versions, which differ in the second row: a three-seater sofa or two separate seats, and in the second case they are heated and ventilated. There are two screens on the front, and the multimedia has the Huawei HiCar operating system.
The new Dongfeng Fengon 580 crossover is equipped with a new 1.5 T-GDI turbo unit, which develops 184 hp. and 300 Nm of torque instead of 145 hp. and 220 Nm for the old motor. And instead of the variator, there is now a classic 6-speed automatic transmission. But the crossover has only front-wheel drive, and the 4×4 transmission is not even in the company’s plans. The new Dongfeng Fengon 580 crossover will hit the Chinese market before the end of autumn.
