Spy Shots: Brilliance compact SUV testing in China
Published on February 25, 2014 by Tycho de Feijter
New spy shots of the new Brilliance compact SUV. The new Brilliance SUV will be launched on the China car market late this year. A concept previewing the SUV is expected for the Beijing Auto Show in April. The yet nameless vehicle will be positioned below the Brilliance V5.
The SUV will be based on the same platform as the Brilliance H220 that was launched on the Chinese auto market in November last year. Power will come from a 1.5 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with an output of 105hp and 143nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. Length will be about 4.2 meter. Price will range from around 70.000 to 100.000 yuan.
Design seems rather sporty with sleek sharp lines and a large grille. Truck-like mirrors attached to the door, instead of to the frame, are a new fashion among local Chinese car makers.
