Great Wall C70 will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show

The new large Great Wall sedan we met last week will be called Great Wall C70, it will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show. Chinese automotive media say the C70 will be launched on the China car market this year, which seems a bit unlikely since we haven’t seen any spy shots of the C70 testing on the road.

The Great Wall C70 is probably based on a slightly stretched variant of the platform of the Great Wall C50, which could explain the short development time. If that is indeed the case the C70 should be seen as some sort of upmarket variant of the C50 and not as a completely new car.

The Great Wall C50. It seems a smaller car, check especially the rear doors, which are much shorter than on the C70. Price of the C50 starts at 79.800 yuan and ends at 94.800 yuan. Lone engine is a 1.5 turbo with 135hp.

    It goes without saying that the wheels will be too small. WHY OH WHY can’t the Chinese automakers stop producing cars with too small wheels. It looks RIDICULOUS, CHEAP and ABSURD.

    The supposed benefits in terms of fuel economy are far outweighed by compromised ride and handling and the damage to the image of the vehicle. This will ultimately hurt brand building efforts and as these cars age they will keep on hurting the brand.

    Apart from that though this is generally a well proportioned, elegant and neat design, if a little generic. If Great Wall is going to mature as a brand it has to extend its range into larger vehicles.
