The Changan Uni-K coupe-crossover will become the most expensive in the range of the Chinese automaker. The novelty is the serial version of the recently presented concept car and, of course, at the back it looks a bit like the well-known coupe-like crossover from Germany.

Earlier this year, Changan Automobile added its first Uni-branded model to its range: the Uni-T. The 4.52 meter crossover will now be joined by the larger Uni-K, which in turn is the production version of the Vision V concept unveiled at the end of last month.

The new Uni-K crossover is 4.87 meters long and is about 5 centimeters shorter than the Porsche Cayenne. In addition, the SUV is 1.95 meters wide and 1.7 meters high and has a wheelbase of 2.98 meters. The comparison with the Porsche SUV is no coincidence, as the Changan Uni-K, especially its rear end with headlights and sloping roofline, is very similar to the Porsche Cayenne Coupe.

At the front we see a pair of flat LED headlights, LED daytime running lights in the bumper and a multi-segment grille. The SUV, which rides on large 21-inch alloy wheels, has strikingly narrow windows. Therefore, the visibility from the steering wheel promises to be not the best.

The engine line-up is known to include a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine from the Blue Whale engine family, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Changan Uni-K is currently only available with all-wheel drive, although it is possible that a front-wheel drive version will arrive at a later date.

It is not yet known if Uni-K will arrive in Europe, as will the rest of Changan’s Uni products. After all, in 2017, the Chinese car manufacturer indicated that it plans to sell its models in the European continent in the long term.
