On the domestic market, the new SUV should be out this summer. It is expected that at the first stage the model will be offered with “turboservice” 1.5, later it will get more powerful engine.
The appearance of the crossover Unit Changan company revealed in January. Public premiere was planned at the Geneva motor show, but the exhibition was canceled due to the outbreak of coronavirus. So that Changan had to limit the online-presentation, apparently from China. And leading, and the representative of the automaker were wearing masks. Recall that Unit was the first model of the new series, the title of which Chinese can be translated as “gravity”. Later in this line will include other crossovers and sedans.
Exterior Changan Unit made in the typical style of the brand: cross received the “mosaic” grille (integrated into the glowing section), bunk head optics on the LEDs (top DRL below the main headlight units) and dual trapezoidal exhaust pipes. Handle front doors pull-out, hidden rear top and rear doors installed forked spoiler. Earlier it was reported that the cross put a 17 – or 19-inch wheels, and during the online screening revealed that there are also 20-inch.
According to preliminary data, the length Unit equal to 4515 mm, width – 1870 mm, height – 1565 mm wheelbase – 2710 mm. That is, the crossover is slightly larger than our Volkswagen Tiguan (length – 4486, width 1839 mm, distance between axes – 2681 mm), although “German” is significantly higher (1632 mm).
The cabin is made after other recent crosses Changan, but has its own “chips” – for example, unusual selector transmission. And crossover to advanced electronics: touchscreen multimedia system can be activated with the look (just look at him for a second); when the call comes, the system will automatically turn the sound; the camera image can be derived, giving the voice command. In addition, the machine monitors the frequency of blinking and yawning of the driver, in order to determine the degree of fatigue and offer to relax if necessary.
In the first stage Unit will be offered with petrol “turboservice” 1.5 issuing 180 HP and 300 Nm. Engine combined with seven-speed robotized transmission with two clutches. Later, the SUV is expected to get a two-liter turbo engine but its capacity is not named. About hybrid and all-electric versions of the company until claimed, not told, and whether the model has all-wheel drive. However, in China, cars with 4WD demand did not use, so that Unit probably is only front wheel drive.
Before the “celestial” dealers crossover will arrive in the summer, prices to be announced. Local media tipped the Unit starting price tag of 120,000 yuan ($17 300).
Cross will probably wind up in other countries.
