Yet another new entry into the minivan segment. A very crowded place with Wuling and Chang’an as the numbers one and two for ages. Other auto makers saw there was much money to be made and jumped in. The Changhe Fuyun is just as cheap as all the others, price starts at 43.800 yuan and ends at 45.800 yuan.
For that money you get a fine looking minivan that can carry 1100kg and has enough space to carry eight people. This sort of vehicles is mostly used to transport goods in the big cities and goods and people in the countryside. That maximum of eight is just an official number given by the factory, in reality these minivans sit up to 15. No kidding, I’ve seen it.
Size: 4010/1645/1910, wheelbase is 2606. Internal space is 4.6 cubic meters. Power comes from a made-in-China Suzuki-sourced 1.3 four-cylinder with 95hp and 105nm, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
