Chery Arrizo 7 will hit the China car market on July 27

The new Chery Arrizo 7 will be launched on the China car market on July 27, price will range from 90.000 to 120.000 yuan. The Chery Arrizo 7, formerly known as the Chery A4, is the first of a new range of Arrizo sub-branded vehicles, with the new Chery Arrizo 3 being the second.

The Chinese name of the Arrizo 7 is Airuize 7 (艾瑞泽7), which is a phonetic translation of Arrizo 7, it doesn’t really mean anything in Chinese.  Power will come from a 1.6 with 126hp and 160nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a CVT. Size: 4650/1820/1480, wheelbase is 2700.

The Arrizo 7 will compete with cars such as the Honda City, the Peugeot 308 and the BYD Sirui, to name but a few. The market segment is hot and crowded and Chery will have to fight hard to compete. The Arrizo looks good enough but the underpowered 1.6 liter engine won’t help. Earlier on we heard about a many fancier engines, including a 1.3 turbo and a 1.6 turbo, but none made it to the Arrizo, yet.

    Nice, conservative styling but price is a bit high.

    I actually like the back of the car, it’s clean and simple, somewhat reminding the VW or Audi style.
    Overall it’s a very good looking car, I hope that the build quality and materials will be higher than what it has been so far on Chery cars.
