Spy Shots of the new Dongfeng Fengguang 580 SUV for China. The Fengguang 580, previously known as nameless, is a new compact SUV for the new Fengguang sub-brand. It will debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and launch on the Chinese car market soon thereafter.
There will be two four-cylinder petrol engines available: a 139hp 1.8 and a 150hp 1.4 turbo.
Size: 4680/1845/1715, and wheelbase is 2780. It will be a full seven-seater with a 2+3+3 configuration. Price of this fine vehicle will start somewhere around 90.000 and end around 130.000 yuan.
The interior looks impressive. Centerpiece is a giant horizontal orientated LCD touch screen. The screen appears to control almost everything because there are very few buttons left. The instrument panel is analogue, showing that Dongfeng isn’t Zotye-modern yet. The center tunnel looks sleek, with an electronic parking brake in front of the cup holder.

Design is trendy with an almost entirely closed D-pillar, a large rear door, a small spoiler above the rear window, a shark fin antenna, and usable roof rails.
