Sedan Chery Arrizo Star, shown at the motor show in Chengdu, aims to demonstrate the potential of personalization machines and ways to improve the brand’s image. The company representatives are silent about the future of this sample, but it is the official joint project of Chery and some third-party teams for tuning. It turned out catchy and unusual for Chery, the Star is hard to recognize the GX sedan Chery Arrizo, which served as the basis for the project.
The dimensions of the modified sedan is not specified, so we present data source: length, width, height – 4710х1825х1490, wheelbase is 2670 mm.
The original model except that GX is recognized as glazing.
In common with the GX-based intervention in the bodywork turned out great. The show car with new bumpers, front and rear optics, hood and trunk lid, rear wing, fenders and doors. And in the front door handles have become hidden, and the rear door simply eliminated.
If the creators of the prototype Star did not intervene in the power unit, here I use the same turboservice 1.5, which is used in Arrizo GX. She has two versions of the force: 147 HP (210 Nm) on a normal GX and 156 HP (230 Nm) on the modification of Arrizo GX Pro. Both versions of the motor can be combined with five-speed “mechanics” or CVT to choose from. Drive only the front, and the suspension is quite traditional for budget compacts: McPherson strut front and torsion beam rear.
Arrizo GX Champion Edition – example of the flexibility of Chery in creating special versions for queries of the customers. In this case, last fall, the company came up with a brighter version, but with “aggressive pricing”.
By the way, simple Arrizo GX turbo worth 79 900 yuan ($11 400). Is this “g-x” fellow called Arrizo GX Champion Edition, the prices for it range from 75 to 900 yuan ($10 800). If this car looks like the top version GX Pro and even more impressive due to the red accents in the exterior. And equipment Champion Edition did not disappoint, but still cheaper than the “not championship” brother. The secret is in the motor: the Champion is turbochetverki installed the 1.5 aspirated with variable timing on both the intake and exhaust, outstanding 115 HP and 143 Nm. In the rest of the “g-x” are identical. For the sedan Champion Edition have the same “mechanics” and CVT. However, in the conventional GX CVT can simulate nine assists, and the Champion not.
