There will be two engines: 1.8 turbo with 150hp and 230nm or a 2.0 turbo with 170hp and 256nm. Black car on pics seems to be a 2.0, badge on back says ‘S5 2.0G’. Gearbox: 6-speed automatic or 5-speed manual.
Luxgen cars are made in Taiwan by the Yulong Group and in China by the Dongfeng-Yulong joint venture. The Luxgen 7 SUV was launched in China in October last year, the Luxgen MPV will be launched very soon and Luxgen is working on a new smaller wagon-like SUV which will be launched in 2013 as well.
