Spy Shots: FAW V2 Cross
Published on August 10, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter
The FAW V2 Cross will be listed in September. It is based on the rather boring FAW V2 hatchback. The Cross stand a bit higher on its wheels, got a roodrack, a new bumper, loads of black plastic and very racy wheels that seem out of place, just a little bit, on a cross country vehicle.
The changes though do the V2 some good. It seems suddenly a much cooler vehicle and guessingly that is exactly what FAW wants us to feel. Job done then. Engine is the same as in the standard car, a 1.3 four cylinder with 91hp and 120nm, mated to a 5-speed auo or 5-speed manual. Front wheel drive. Price yet unknown but the standard car starts at 50.000 yuan.
