The Chery-Riich G5 sedan is currently only available with a 2.o. Chery however will bring a 1.8 to the market in April. Target of the new engine is to drive up sales by offering the car for a cheaper price. The 2.0 starts at 128.800 yuan, the 1.8 will start around 110.000 yuan. The 1.8 has 97kw and 170nm, the 2.0 125kw and 235nm.

Chery brings a special edition Riich G5 to the market. It is meant to ‘honor’ the World Cup and is called ‘Messi’, to Lionel Messi of Argentina. Could be a good idea, Mr Messi is very popular in China. The G5 Messi gets a lot of extra sportyness, new wheels, new grille, and costs 138.800 rmb. Good deal, the standard car costs between 142.800 and 179.800.

Geely’s sub-brand GLEagle (aka Global Hawk) brings on the new G5 concept. It is a classical Chinese with a huge blingbling grille, the spiritual successor of the unsuccessful Geely Meirenbao that was once China’s first sports car.
