Grille is much bigger than on the outgoing Chery E5, with much more chrome in line with the continuing chrome-trend in China. The overall design didn’t change that much but Chery managed to make the facelifted E5 a lot more like a grown-up car. An all-new Chery E5 is expected for 2014.

The facelifted Chery E5 will be powered by a new 1.6 DVVT engine with 126hp and 160nm, replacing the old 109hp 1.6. The 132hp 1.8 will continue until a replacement is ready, which will likely come in the form of a turbocharged variant of the 1.6.

    Rear overhang is too long, car would look a lot better with a longer wheelbase or in a hatchback variant.
