Spy Shots: Dongfeng Fengshen CM7 MPV is Naked in China

New spy shots from the new Dongfeng Fengshen MPV, code named CM7. The Fengshen CM7 is design-wise an interesting mix between the Toyota Alphard and the Hyundai i800, but it will be much cheaper than either of those cars. The CM7 will be launched on the Chinese auto market in the first half of this year, price will start around 120.000 yuan.

Power comes from a Mitsubishi-sourced 4G69 2.4 liter four-cylinder, mated to a 5-speed manual. The 4G49 is used by many smaller Chinese automakers and is usually good for some 160hp. Size: 5150/1920/1925, wheelbase is 3200. Dongfeng has a long experience with making MPV’s with a more commercial character. This CM7 is the first Dongfeng MPV aimed at the passenger-car market.

Old fashioned 5-speeder helps a lot to keep the price low.

    How do Chinese automakers get away with intentionally copying from foreign car makers?

    Incredibly unoriginal design, and crappy old engine, you say? Pass.

    The top selling but aged Mitz-based Dongfeng Liuzhou Lingzhi will be a hard act to follow.

    I quite like the front of it, it’s certainly better looking than the i800. The rear is clearly i800 with probably the Alphard boot door, very lazy designing. As CM said, blatent rip offs of the original Korean and Japanese vehicles.
