The touch screen is 8 inch, rather small for 2016. It maybe small but it comes with quite some tech: it runs on a localized version of GM’s IntelliLink infotainment system,  including a ‘4G LTE’ wifi hotspot that can connect up to seven devices within 700 square meters from the vehicle, Apple CarPlay, Baidu CarLife (allows the on-board infotainment system to work with popular Baidu apps), and wireless charging for mobile devices. It is the same system that is also fitted in the new Buick LaCrosse.

Power comes from a 2.0 turbocharged four in two variants: the ’25T’ with 250hp and 400nm, and the ’28T’ with 269hp and again with 400nm. Transmission is an eight-speed automatic. The 25T is front-wheel drive, the 28T is four-wheel drive.
