The Changfeng Liebao CP2 (aka Acumen) has been around for a while, it debuted as a concept at the 2009 Shanghai Auto Show. In the meantime Guangzhou Auto bought a controlling stake in Changfeng Auto so the latter had enough money to spend on further developing the medium sized sedan. It will finally hit the Chinese market in July.

The Changfeng Liebao CP2, which some say loox like a Volvo S40.., will be listed in March 2011. Size: 4480×1770×1462, wheelbase is 2640. Engines: 1.6 and 1.8. Price will start around 100.000 yuan and that is much cheaper than that Volvo, all similarities stop right there with that. Really. Changfeng is a subsidiary of mighty Guangzhou Auto which does know how to design a car that they can call their own, maybe the next CP2 will be better.

The Changfeng CP21 sedan is rolling of the line, but yet without a name. CP21 is the codename, the concept was called 欧酷曼, ‘Oukuman’, and Acumen as its English name. Last week we heard the car would be called 卓越, ‘Zuoyue’, meaning ‘excellent’.
Changfeng however has now denied Zuoyue is the name of the game, even worse, Changfeng said further no decision on the name has been made. The plan was to list the car in November, they better hurry up. Maybe new parent Guangzhou Auto wants to have a say as well… Engines: 1.4, 1.8 and 2.0, price to start around 100.000 yuan. More pics:
