Judging by the photos, the novelty will be designed according to the current Hongqi design language, with a massive radiator grille and tapered front optics. This style is not accidentally reminiscent of Rolls-Royce: it was developed by Giles Taylor, who previously served as the chief designer of the British brand.
The spacious interior of the crossover in the pictures has a six-seater layout with two “captain” chairs with armrests on the second row and a sofa in the back. It is not yet known whether the SUV will receive a version with a different landing formula.
The seats are upholstered in perforated leather. There are leather inserts in the door cards, which are also decorated with wooden and gilded details. The front panel features an analogue clock – another Rolls-Royce reminder – as well as a virtual instrument cluster and a small screen for the multimedia system.
As for the technical “stuffing” of the LS7, then, according to the publication, the crossover will get a four-liter V8 biturbo engine, which is part of the 1400-horsepower hybrid installation on the S9 supercar. Separately, the engine develops 659 forces and 850 Nm of torque.

Hongqi (“Hongqi” or “Red Banner”), owned by FAW, is engaged in the production of luxury cars for the Chinese ruling elite. At the end of July, spies showed the brand’s new limousine, the N701, which will also get a supercharged V8.
When the large crossover will go on sale is still unknown. Hongqi has previously shown a Cullinan-style model, a twin-engine E-HS9 electric SUV that sprints from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in four seconds.
