Changan Ouliwei 1.4 hits the China car market
Published on October 11, 2013 by W.E. Ning
The Changan Ouliwei 1.4 has been launched on the China car market, price starts at 52.900 yuan and ends at 55.900 yuan. The Changan Ouliwei arrived in April, but was only available with a tiny 1.2, until now. Changan also announced an official English name for the Ouliwei, which it didn’t have yet. The name is… Eulove. Kinky.
The Chinese name, Ouliwei, means as much as ‘European Power’. Changan is keen on using this kinda names in China, hoping to impress on Chinese car buyers that they make sophisticated vehicles with a foreign touch. The English name is a bit softer with EU standing for European Union and love for love. However, Changan does have serious plans to enter the European car market in the future and the Eulove will be one of the cars going. Whether the name works on the old continent, where most citizens hate the EU, is however not exactly sure.
The 1.4 liter engine poops out 101hp and 135nm. The 1.2 has 72hp and 117nm. Both are mated to a 5-speed manual. The 1.2 is priced from 47.900 yuan to 49.900 yuan. That’s 29 more horses for 5000 yuan more. Not a bad deal…
