Published on January 16, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
New spy shots from the upcoming Luxgen M7 MPV testing in China, it will debut at the Beijing Auto Show in April. Luxgen is a brand from Taiwanese car company Yulong Motors. The Luxgen M7 MPV will be made in Taiwan and on mainland China by the Dongfeng-Yulong joint venture.
The Dongfeng-Yolong joint venture already makes the Luxgen 7 SUV and will soon start making the Luxgen 5 sedan. The Luxgen M7 MPV will be powered by a 2.0 turbo with 170hp and 256nm mated to a 6-speed automatic. The same engine is also available in the Luxgen 5. The Luxgen 7 SUV is powered by a marginally stronger 2.2 turbo with 175hp and 275nm.
The Luxgen M7 MPV was formerly known simply as ‘Luxgen 7 MPV’, I guess the ‘M’ was added to prevent confusion with the Luxgen 7 SUV. Much more clear now, ain’t it so?
