Spy Shots: Hengtian Yueli SUV For China
Published on August 1, 2016 by Tycho de Feijter
Hengtian Auto is working on a new SUV called Yueli. It is a huge machine, combining design elements of the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Land cruiser Prado. The grille is impressive. The vehicle seems to be about five meters long.
The interior is interesting, with an enormous touch screen, square shaped dials, a large steering wheel, a manual hand brake, and a six-speed manual transmission.
What will be under the bonnet is yet unknown, but we bet it is going to be a Mitsubishi 2.4 four-cylinder petrol with some 160 horsepower. This famous engine powers basically every large Chinese local-brand SUV. It is also far from certain the vehicle will make it to the market at all. Back in 2013 we saw spy shots of a compact SUV that looked ready to roll, but it was never launched.
Beige seats and red carpets. There appears to be a CD tray in the back of the arm rest.
Camouflage colors; will this Hengtian too keep hiding forever?
