Spy photos of the new Auchan X5 appeared even before the start of the Chengdu auto show. Despite the fact that the exterior of the car was revealed earlier, “live” shots give a better idea of the new product.
The exterior of the new crossover is identical to the previously shown teasers. The car is characterized by a futuristic appearance. From the front, the car resembles a Chevrolet Malibu sedan. They have similar radiator grilles, and the same thin strip that stretches from one edge to the other. Cross headlights – slim format, presented by LED layout.
From the side, the car looks very much like a Lexus. A nice addition is that the doors are equipped with unpainted plastic covers that cover the sills. This is a good solution to the problem of dirty clothes in bad weather.
The dimensions of the car are as follows: length – 4,730 mm, width – 1,870 mm, height – 1,720 mm, wheelbase – 2 786 mm. The manufacturer offered 6 shades: star red, star white, interstellar gray, azure blue, sky blue and star blue.
The cabin has a dashboard with a large LCD display. Under the hood of the SUV is a 1.5-liter turbo engine in two versions – 170 and 188 horsepower. There are also two transmissions: a 6-speed traditional “mechanics” or a 7-speed “robot” with a wet dual clutch.
