The exterior of the compact SUV of the Chinese brand Venucia T60 is revealed. The brand was created by Nissan and Dongfeng in 2010.
Photos of the camouflaged crossover Venucia posted on the Network last week. At the same time the brand distributed the first official teaser novelties. And now, at the base of the Chinese Ministry of Industry, snapshots of the cross appeared without any disguise. Judging by the label on the baggage door, the model will go on sale under the T60 index.
In the profile, the new Venitchia SUV reminds of the Nissan Kicks crossover. Most likely, the Chinese car is built on the Nissan platform. Recall Venucia is a joint project of a Japanese company and Dongfeng, the brand was created eight years ago. First, under this brand, let out redirected old Nissans, then there were independent models, but they are based on Nissan’s platform. Kicks is based on the platform V. By the way, Kicks also sell in China, they are manufactured at the local Nissan and Dongfeng joint venture.
The length of the Venucia T60 is 4 412 mm, the width is 1 820 mm, the height – 1,679 mm, the wheelbase – 2 640 mm. The Nissan Kicks crossover is compact: 4 295/1 760/1 588 mm, the distance between the axles is 2 620 mm. For T60 there are: 17-inch wheels, LED lights, vertical LEDs, and DRL two-color body color.
It is expected that the new Venusia will be offered with only one engine – the petrol atmospheric of the Nissan series HR16 in the volume of 1.6 liters and a power of 126 hp. No information on gearboxes yet, the drive is sure to be only the front – versions 4 × 4 in China are not in demand. The Nissan Kicks Crossover in the Celestial Market is available with the 124-horsepower HR15 1.5, which works in pairs with the manual transmission or the X-Tronic variator. The Kick’s full drive is also not fitted.
Before the Chinese dealers Venucia T60 will get in the fourth quarter of this year. Probably the crossover will be cheaper than the Nissan Kicks. The last model in the Middle Kingdom is from 99,800 yuan.
Outside China, the Venucia brand is not represented. Kicks is a global model – in addition to the Celestial, it is sold in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, the USA and Canada. And soon a compact Nissan crossover will appear in India, and for this country the model can be converted to platform B0, which also is based on Nissan Terrano, Renault Logan, Sandero, Duster and Captur.
