Auto Guangzhou (November 19-28) will be the premiere venue for the new Changan fastback. The third model from the Uni series (“gravity”) will share units with Uni-K and Uni-T SUVs, that is, it will receive one or both petrol turbo fours: 1.5 (180 hp, 300 Nm) with a seven-band “robot” with two clutches , 2.0 (233 hp, 390 Nm) with an eight-speed “automatic” Aisin. Four-wheel drive is not expected.
A length of about 4700 mm makes the newcomer akin to the fresh Eado Plus sedan (Raeton CC is larger). The name of the five-door has not yet been revealed. Chang’an’s traditional camouflage is saturated with the letters “V” and hints at the name Uni-V. However, there were no such tips before.
“Official spy shots” are taken on the racetrack and indicate the rookie’s athletic character. Large air intakes and a forked outlet speak of the same thing. In terms of suspensions, the liftback is most likely unified with its brothers: McPherson and multi-link.
Real paparazzi discovered a retractable electrically adjustable wing on the prototype. Penetrating into the salon, they saw a copy of the “unit”. A cluster of two 10.25-inch displays dominates.
Fastback sales in China are unlikely to begin before 2022. The price will be close to the Uni-T compact, which asks for 115,900-133,900 yuan ($ 23,800-20,700), while the Uni-K requires 153,900-184,900 ($ 23,800-28,600). Demand for Uni-T is declining. In June, 5782 units were sold, in the six months – 45 895. The senior Uni-K did not live up to expectations, since in six months it found only 17 861 owners. Changan CS75 Plus is “to blame” for this (174,059 units were sold in six months).
