The Hawtai A25 is a small SUV that stands on a new platform, it will bring the Hawtai brand into a new and potentially very lucrative market segment.

Interior looks fine but very black. Center console seems to have to separate screens on top instead of one larger screen. Manual gearbox here.
Central dial very hip.
Large rear lights. Great shoulder line around the C-pillar.
