Spy Shots: Zotye T600S testing in China

The very first Spy Shots of the new Zotye T600S, a sporty version of the Zotye T600 SUV that was launched on the Chinese car market in 2013. The T600S was formerly known as the T600 Sport. The T600S should not be confused with the ‘T600 S Concept‘, which is a very different car.

The regular T600. Current price starts at 79.800 yuan and ends at 135.800 yuan. Two engines: a 162hp 1.5 turbo and a 190hp 2.0 turbo, mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed DCT.

The T600S will only be available with the 190hp 2.0 turbo mated to the DCT. It will not get any more power, but it will look more speedy:

Lights are sharper, bumper with big air ducts, and a bulge in the bonnet. But because it isn’t faster than the regular car Zotye won’t be able to charge much more money for it, which means the poor brand will end up with yet another SUV of the same size in the same price range.

Usable roof rails. Rear lights and bumper are redesigned for T600S.

Badges look cool, with red and all for fast, but it just doesn’t seem different enough. Needs more horses!

      They are angled the opposite way but there is no mistaking anyone in the rest of the world would be turned off by this. How could this happen! This is crazy!

        Remember that this symbol, “svastika”, in Sanskrit, pre-dated the Nazi movement, which perverted it for its sinister purposes.. much the same way as “the cross” symbol is perverted by of today’s popular culture.
        Many in East Asia have not the foggiest idea of the atrocities associated with the swastika symbol, and it continues to adorn Buddhist temples and mark their locations on maps.

    I hope the rear hatch fits better, when closed completely….
