Luxgen U6 Turbo launched on the China car market

The Luxgen U6 Turbo has been launched on the China car market. The Luxgen U6 is a sporty crossover based on the same platform as the Luxgen 5 Sedan that was launched in July 2013. Price for the Luxgen U6 starts at 128.800 yuan and ends at 208.000 yuan.


Luxgen is a brand from the Taiwanese Yulong Group. Luxgen cars are made in Taiwan and in China by the Dongfeng-Yulong joint venture.

The U6 Turbo is available with two turbocharged engines: a 1.8 turbo with 150hp and 230nm and a 2.0 turbo with 170hp and 256nm. Gearbox: 5-speed automatic or 5-speed manual for the 1.8 turbo, and a 6-speed automatic for the 2.0 turbo. Size: 4625/1825/1645mm, wheelbase is 2720.


Luxgen hopes to win Chinese buyers by offering premium quality cars with high tech engines and interiors. Pricing is smartly set between the most expensive local Chinese brands and the cheapest international brands. Luxgen however is still a relatively unknown name, so the challenge is mostly marketing. The giant Luxgen 7 SUV is selling well, but the Luxgen 5 Sedan is trailing behind.

          It isn’t quite so easy to compare from market to market as there are so many factors to take in, in regards to pricing. Here in Aus. the Luxgen would be a good buy as it would competitive at the above pricing. Here, ix35, $28-$41,000, RAV4, $29-$51000, Macan, $85-$123,000, and the MDX hasn’t been sold here for years as it was too expensive. It was sold against the BMW X5 which at the moment starts from $99,900, too much for a “Honda”. I guess that it is a blessing to be able to buy cars so cheap in the states, so enjoy what you can get. I like the look of the Luxgen and whilst it wouldn’t suite me personally, I can see it working at the right price in the right market. Oh, buy the way, we can get US made trucks here, but we have to pay $100,000-$150,000 for a F150, or a Ram etc. Compare that to what you pay in the good ol’ USA. Be thankful that housing and transport is so cheap there.

    I’m sympathetic with Luxgen. I like their designs, although can’t consider them exactly as original. Luxgen sells about 15000 cars per year in Taiwan and hopefully with the U6 their sales will boost in China

    […] LUXGEN U6 TURBO Taiwanese automaker, Luxgen, just introduced a new crossover in China called the U6 Turbo. It’s powered by one of two turbo charged engines, a 1.8L or a 2.0L, which can be mated to a 5-speed automatic or manual or a 6-speed automatic. The car costs between, $20,000 and $33,000 which is priced between high-end local Chinese brands and cheaper international brands. Luxgen is a very interesting company in that its actually based in Taiwan and builds cars in China with its joint venture partner Dongfeng. Yes, China actually considers Luxgen a foreign company.

    I wonder why Luxgen does not invest into sponsoring an F1 team? Sure, sponsoring top team will cost lots of money. However, there are back markers, like Marussia F1, which I am sure will be glad to give large advertizing space for a reasonable fee. Especially because Luxgen is trying to penetrate the Russian market, by sponsoring a “Russian” F1 team may give them much needed exposure. Of course, there is a risk of being associated with poor performers, but by backing a “local” team may give more positive image and brand recognition rather than drawbacks.
